Info about Campout and Cubpalooza
Hope everyone is excited about Cubpalooza next Friday, Saturday and Sunday (October 7, 8 and 9th). If you haven’t told your den leader that you are attending, please do so now. We need numbers so that we have plenty of supplies. The cost for the campout is $5 per family. Please give that payment to your den leaders as soon as possible.
As of right now, each rank will camp in groups; Tigers with Tigers, Bears with Bears, etc. They will remain in these groups throughout the day as they proceed through the stations. Family members are, of course, welcome to accompany Scouts to the stations.
The stations are as follows:
1. Fishing 4. Readyman (First Aid)
