Cub Scouts from Burks’ Pack 3266 enjoyed Day Camp based on a Star Wars theme. Additionally, they had a swimming party, and toured Raccoon Mountain Cavern. Later in July, the Webelos, fourth and fifth graders, will attend Webelos Resident Camp at Skymont Scout Reservation.
For one of their service projects, the Cub Scouts have been collecting items to place in Christmas shoeboxes for children in Third-world countries. They and their parents will assist the Aldersgate Sunday School class in packing these, “Christmas in July.”
Although Scouts can join at any time, the majority of the new Scouts join Cub Scouts at the start of the school year. Currently, Cub Scout dens utilize almost every available classroom on Monday nights. In May, approximately 70 Scouts advanced to their next Rank. Leaders are trying to figure out how to deal with classroom space issues in anticipation of the upcoming school year and a whole new group of Scouts.
