201 Cub Scouts enjoyed a great week of Day Camp activities! 100 adult leaders and volunteers helped staff the program areas each day from 8am to 4pm at the Outdoor Education Center in Walton, NE. The Scouts engaged in Scout Skills, STEM, Crafts, Games, Archery, BB-Guns, and Nature.
This year’s theme, “The Summer Awakens” brought to life the Star Wars movies as the Scouts made Chewbacca characters, terrariums, and light sabers; while adding fun twists to traditional Scouting activities like the 1 mile hike; knot tying; and fire building. The Scouts ended the week with the traditional “Friday Water Day” with relays, a dunk tank, and kickball with swimming pools for bases.
Community groups and local citizens also provided leadership to Day Camp. Special guests from the 501st Legion showed up in full Star Wars costumes to bring characters from the movie to life at Day Camp. John Janovy, a Biology professor at the University of Nebraska, taught the Scouts about creepy crawly parasites. Eagle Scout Hunter Foge, an engineering student at the University of Nebraska, demonstrated Scout Skills and educated the Scouts on what he learned as a Scout. Local Artist Julia Kappenmann painted the entrance archways as well as making costumes for volunteers; and Rebecca Wood, owner of The Sugar Sunflower Bakery, made paint your own Star Wars cookies for all the volunteers.
Many Scouts exclaimed, “We will return next year!
