We used the Cyber Chip to liberalize the policy Smart Phone's on campouts and after one year the PLC wants to ban them again. The boys claim they cause too much trouble. A couple boys quit but they were never very avid scouts.

I liken this to watching Star Wars in the correct order, 4-5-6-1-2-3.  There's continuity there and something to be gained by doing things a different (re: old) way.  You appreciate things more, and learn real value.  When you're an adult, make whatever choices you want, but kids are plugged into tech practically 24x7, let them unplug for a while, learn how to "Be Prepared" by using alternative methods to requiring a power source.  Nothing wrong with tech, but knowing how to do without it, is a very valuable skill to have.  Helped me and my family tremendously when Hurricane Sandy wiped out the power for 13 days.
