Here in the Cherokee Area Council, our Fall Cub and Family weekend is called Cub N Parnter, and it is a time to offer the Packs an opportunity to camp as a unit.
Most youth join Cub Scouting because of the outdoor activities. Youth in this age group have a natural curiosity about their surroundings, especially the world out-of-doors. Introducing these youth to the fun and adventure of Scouting in the outdoors will benefit them as they mature through the program. Their participation and enthusiasm will grow for continuing in the program into Scouting and beyond.
This fall’s theme is “Sleepy Hollow,” and we are excited about the activities we have planned! Unlike our Summer Cub Family Camp, rather than rotating through activity areas based on your campsite, Scouts will have the option of walk-up events, based on the schedule provided – this is to help families stay together.
There will also be plenty of free time for hiking and fishing!
The Campfire on Saturday is sure to be good fun, and we want Packs involved in the program, so let us know if your pack has a skit or spooky story they’d like to share!
Activities planned for the weekend are staffed with parents like you. If you would like to help with any of the activities, your leadership would be much appreciated! You can contact our District Camping Chairman for more information about serving during the event.
