reason # 568

Will went on a 4 day field trip/service project to Philadelphia with his Boy Scout troop, the itinerary was jam-packed with touristy trips to the home of Betsy Ross, the US Mint, Independence Hall...

The only information I have been able to extract out of my normally talkative boy is how uncomfortable the beds were at their Scout campground. Why am I harboring the thought that the event was conducted like a typical school field trip and they hustled through each site, never stopping for more than 5 minutes, and certainly not absorbing any historical knowledge?
