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.

CUB SCOUT RESIDENT SUMMER CAMP (JULY 30-31/August 1-2)

Cub Scout Summer camp will be at Camp Kootaga.
The purpose of good Scouting and Scout camping is to train boys in good character, vital citizenship and personal fitness. The objectives of the Camp Staff and the Camp program are to serve the needs of the Pack and the Scouts. In outdoor Scouting activities, simple skills of camp craft, woodcraft, aquatics, personal fitness and living in a Democratic society are at a premium.

They are important because:
1. Learning skills and advancing bring self-confidence.
2. Solving immediate camping problems brings self-reliance.
3. Vigorous outdoor exercise promotes personal fitness.
4. Knowing what to do and doing it promotes personal initiative.
5. Making group decisions and implementing them develops cooperation.
6. Facing certain hardships with buddies makes life-long friends.
7. Experiencing nature develops outdoor appreciation and spiritual awareness

Lord Baden-Powell wrote in 1919, “The objective of a camp is:
1. To meet the boy’s desire for the open air life of the Scouts; and
2. To put him completely in the hands of the Cubmaster for a definite period of individual training and character and in physical and moral development.”

The basis of this training and character development is the Scout’s participation and acceptance of responsibility of his Patrol. Baden-Powel emphasized this in 1936 when he wrote, “The Patrol is the character school for the individual. To the Patrol Leader it gives practice in responsibility and in the qualities of Leadership. To the Scouts it gives subordination of self to the interest of the whole, the elements of self-denial, and the self-control involved in the team spirit of cooperation and good comradeship.”

At Camp Kootaga, we intend to reproduce and strengthen the processes by which a Troop ideally operates when it is in its home community. We do not intend to replace the Scoutmaster, the Pack’s Leaders Council or the Leadership Corp, but rather to work with them and through them in determining the needs of individual Packs and of the Scouts in them.

Camp will be more than out-of-doors; it will bring an intense and vital training session for the Troops that come and for the boys they bring. It is a vital part of the Scouting program and will endeavor to build Scouts and Troops by supplying them challenges, opportunities and rewards of Scouting in an intensive and reinforcing way. This assists the Scouts and Packs to determine their own Program and effectively operate through their own Leadership.
