Cub Scout Pack 1776

Cub Scout Day Camp Wrap Up

Pack 1776 families-

We had a fantastic week at Meridian's Cub Scout Camp held at Little Hills!

This year the theme was "Cubstruction" and ran from 9 am to 3:30 pm for 5 days from June 21 - 25th. The camp ended early at 2 pm on the last day with ice cream while watching skits. Our skit was one of the six they picked out of 25 units to perform for the camp. Yeah! I found that camp director Brian Wort headed up a very well run camp with plenty of volunteers and junior helpers too. They required one adult volunteer every day for every six scouts attending. I was there every day. Lisa Cheney and Cubmaster Emeritus Ed Laubach volunteered on Monday. (Thank you so much!) All volunteers were required to take Youth Protection Training and attend a 1 1/2 hour Camp Training Meeting.

Over the five days, the kids rotated through various stations:

Knife Safety
Engineering - Bridge Building over two days
Engineering - Crane Building
Decorate Unit Flag
Knots & Lashings
Chariot Building & Racing
Genius Kits
Paper Airplanes
Skit Practice
Group Photos
Soap Carving (for younger scouts)/Whittling (for Webelos only)
Cubstruction Race
Logo Design
Den Yells
Water Sports (replaced with non-water games because of chilly weather)
