Please join me in welcoming on board Bill Lake-Wright And Sam Alboy as Camp Lawton’s 2018 Camp Director and Program Director.
Bill Lake-Wright, Camp Director – My name is William Lake-Wright (Bill). I am Married to Jennifer Lake-Wright, my bride of 23 years. Together we have two children, Alendra, 17, a Venture Scout, and Draegan, 10, a Cub Scout (Weblos AOL).
I am a retired Air Force Fighter Pilot, but started out as an enlisted troop for 9 years before getting my commission. I flew two combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan in the F-16 before transitioning to Space Command,where I flew high altitude aircraft. Toward the end of my career I flew Helecopters as the Commander Joint Task Force Raven.
Post retirement, I was the District Manager for The Home Depot for 7 years. I left and opened my own construction company which built 11 houses, two commercial buildings and did many remodels. I sold that company in 2015 and opened Wright Executive Limousines, which is going well and growing.
I entered scouting back in the 1970’s as a Cub Scout and received my Eagle and became a Brotherhood member of the Order of the Arrow,
here in Tucson with Troop 100. After a 20 year military career, I returned to scouting with my kids. I am currently the Cub Master for Pack 248 and the Lead Advisor for Venture Crew 211. I handle Public Affairs for the Old Pueblo District Committee, and assist with all scouting events that I can. As a former paramedic, I am currently a Wilderness First Aid, CPR and AED instructor and have served as a medic for several scout functions. I was the Camp Director for Camp Lawton in 2017 and will be returning this year in the same role. I was an Advisor for the 2017 National Jamboree Crew Contingent as well as a Troop Guide for Wood badge W6-11-17 and will be on staff for the winter NYLT course and Powderhorn in November of 2018. I believe in giving all youth and adult leaders the knowledge, skills and training that Scouting provides, in order to help them throughout their lives as it has helped me.
I have a small farm, with 5 Goats, 20 chickens, 5 dogs, 3 cats, and lots of bees.
My life currently revolves around my family, work, and scouting, and luckily, all three flow together well.
