Scout's Honor

Comedian Whitmer Thomas remembers the summer he spent at Boy Scout camp — a 10-year-old skater kid without a single badge to his name. Whit shares a deeply personal tale of frosted tips, moms, ghosts, and gimp for Pop-Up Magazine’s Fall Issue, with shadow puppets and a synth-rock score by Manual Cinema.
