(As we prepare for the Parkersburg Annual Leadership Dinner)

Camp Red Arrow June 22-25, 2015

Camp Red Arrow Cub Scouts can participate in many types of activities including, archery, BB-guns, sling shots, field sports, nature, arts and crafts, Scout skills, and a variety of other events. All areas (especially range activities) place a special emphasis on safety procedures. It’s a fun-filled week four days of challenging Cub Scout activities, exciting adventures and new friendships.

Camp is under the direction of a Camp Director and Program Director trained at the Boy Scouts of America National Camping School. All ranges are under the supervision of staff with hours of training and experience in their field. Safety is the number one priority at day camp followed by fun and adventure.

Scouts primarily sign up and attend day camp with their Pack. Camp is a lot more fun when your den attends together. However if your Pack is not attending Day Camp there is no reason why you should miss out on the adventure. A Scout and their adult partner can attend day camp and be matched with a den of Scouts the same age. We don’t want anyone to miss out on this awesome summer experience. Please contact your Day Camp Program Director, Terri Holcomb for information on how to attend without your Pack.

This year we will allow the cub scouts to invite a friend to attend camp on Wednesday, June 24. More details on this later.

In 2015, more than 30,000 Scouts and leaders from 161 countries around the world will converge on Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan, for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree.

The event will provide opportunities to raise awareness about global issues, explore the environment, participate in community service, make friends from around the world, and deepen understanding of developments in science and technology. The world jamboree is a unique opportunity for participants to experience an exciting program of activities, including: Global Development Village, City of Science, Crossroads of Culture, and the Peace Program.

Participants will live and learn with fellow Scouts from around the world. They will be housed in tents along with the BSA contingent but will soon venture out to mingle with tens of thousands of people for two weeks of activities and adventure. That’s right, a world fellowship exercise on an enormous scale!

Make plans now to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime event, where Scouts and Venturers from around the world will meet at the intersection of tradition and innovation to explore energy, technology and harmony.
