Cub Scouts enjoy Webelo Camp
Attended Webelos camp at Camp Augustine July 9 – 12. Webelos were Cub Scouts in fourth and fifth grades. There were three sessions of Webelos Camp offered. The boys attended the second session, which had about 40 boys in attendance, the smallest of the three. The classes they attended were Archery, Air Rifle, Build it, Engineering, Climbing Tower, Fix It, Earth Rocks and Castaway. In these classes, they learned how to safely shoot arrows or pellets at the shooting ranges, build a shelf, engineer a bridge, climb a tower, fix things around the house, geology and rock identification, and how to build a fire with flint and steal. They had fun in all of the areas, but they agreed the climbing tower was the most fun. Arapahoe paired with a pack out of Kearney for their campsite, so the boys made some new friends. They are excited to go again next year, but hope it isn’t quite so hot! This photo was taken during the Prairie Pioneer Days 4th of July celebration.
