Virtual Day Camp / Summer Camp
Many of our Scouts were not able to attend Cub Scout Day Camp, Cub Scout Adventure Camp or Scouts BSA Summer Camp this year. So we are planning this virtual event to gives Scouts from around the council a chance to get outdoors and do some fun activities.
Each Cub Scout will receive a Day Camp T-Shirt, patch and wood craft project. In addition, Cub Scouts will have the chance to do these fun activities and win prizes for participating:
- Recycled Art Project
- Lean How to Lead a Song
- Scavenger Hunt
- Stretch & Jump Time
- Virtual Tour of Butler Outpost
- Woodcraft Project
- Animal Presentation
Scouts BSA members will receive a Summer Camp T-shirt and patch. In addition Scouts will have the chance to earn prizes by participating in:
- Pioneering project
- Go for a Hike
- Bicycle Trip
- Fishing Contest
- Earn a merit badge (Animation, American Heritage, Scouting Heritage and Reading will be offered)
