Medieval Make-A-Wish

Is it wrong that I'm insanely jealous of this boy's Make-A-Wish? Sure, he's got desmoid fibromatosis, but he's also got his own castle, flanked by folks from the New Hampshire Renaissance Faire and the Neville Companye. Check out the photo gallery to see just how cool it is.

Has anyone else noticed just how many medieval reenactors are involved in Scouting as well? I'm curious as to why that is. My gut impulse is to say they are drawn to the places where Scouting values coincide with chivalric values ("A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.").
