A weekend well spent

About 100 Cub Scouts and adults converged on Briggs Woods Park this weekend for the annual Cub Scout Day Camp.

Cubs enjoyed eight stations where they participated in activities including archery, BB guns, fishing, woodworking, leather projects, horseshoes, rope making, open fire cooking, water rockets, water blasters and making spirit shields.

This years theme was “Wild West Adventures” and found “Sheriff” Shelly Sjoberg sporting a 40 gallon cowboy hat and canvassing the grounds for hardened criminals. A mock “arrest” was made by Deputy Rylan Clabaugh of five people violating Code 603 of the Scouting handbook that states no open faced shoes can be worn during a Scouting function. The Scouts were also entertained by the Kamrar Fire Department who came out and helped the kids cool off via fire hose.

Program Director Dave Bergeson said he was pleased with the volunteers who helped at the camp on Friday and Saturday.

“It’s so awesome to see people stepping up to help run stations and give these kids an experience they’ll remember the rest of their lives,” Bergeson said.
