Thanks for the reply. The problem for me is that even if I had insurance I would have no time to report it and obtain a police report. I will be supervising 40 students of which about 10 will be my sole responsibility. Their days are jam packed with leadership drills, hiking, traveling to schools, service projects etc. Even if I had my camera stolen, I probably wouldn't report it because my whole group would be paralyzed during the time it would take to file the report. I don't know how long that would take there, but here where I live, the whole process would take 2-4 hours. I can't take that time away from my kids. I know many may disagree with me here and think that my line of thinking is ridiculous, but I've been on this trip before and I know the schedule and I know myself.
I was just trying to find out ways that may make it less likely for my camera to go missing and came across an article about uglifying cameras. So I just put it up here to see what everyone thought.
Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts
