For the first time in my life I can say I've experienced Cub Scout Day Camp. I was actually looking forward to this day. The boys in my den are a lot of fun. I was able to get my mom to come watch Crew & H for the day which is so sweet of her.
Around 7:00 am we loaded up my van with a bunch of 8 & 9 year old scouts. We actually had to take 3 vehicles. Two vans and a suburban. It was about a 45 minute drive to the camp, which isn't bad. We started off with an opening flag ceremony. Then throughout the day we rotated between different stations. We made our own pocket knives, carved soap, shot BB Guns and bow & arrows. The theme was centered around indians. We learned indian games, songs & stories. We also had the privilege of swinging down the zip line and climbing the wall.
The boys brought their own lunch. Found treasures at the trading post and most importantly - passed off a bunch of scouting requirements. We ended the day with another flag ceremony. The weather was beautiful and the scouts well behaved. What more could one ask for? We had a fun time!
