Day Camp is the best part of summer where a kid gains independence, confidence, builds new friendships and creates new memories. The ‘Game of Cubs’ Day Camp has flown by and the Scouts have been creating everlasting experiences and for some, completely new experiences! From passing swim test for the first time to watching the Camp Director accidentally flip his canoe in the McGimsey pond. Our Cub Scouts have cheered, laughed and gained the confidence to embrace new challenges. With only one week left of day camp our staff has brought the excitement and is looking to make this week an everlasting week of fun times!
HERE ARE THE TOP 5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD SEND YOUR CUB SCOUT TO OUR DAY CAMP.
1. Day Camp makes Cub Scouts BRAVE
Day Camp gives our Cub Scouts the opportunity to be brave and step out of their comfort zone. We teach them new skills and give them the opportunity to learn new hobbies and passions, that other places don’t. Our Cub Scouts have learned new games such as 9 square and gained the confidence to help friends with minor first aid.
2. Day Camp makes Cub Scouts FRIENDLY
Day Camp gives our Cub Scouts the opportunity to build new friendships and develop new social skills. It’s always exciting to watch Scouts work together on team building activities and learn to work together in order to complete a task or new skill. We love watching Cub Scouts walk in nervously on the first day, not knowing a single person and on the last day running around with their new best friend!
3. Day Camp makes Cub Scouts CHEERFUL
Everyday Cub Scouts are faced with new challenges and with that comes the feeling of accomplishment and confidence. Scouts learn to cheer their buddies on and help each other when the hard lessons of failure come along. Our Cub Scouts are taught to always do your best and always be willing to try something new.
4. Day Camp makes Cub Scouts CLEAN
Walk through McGimsey during a Day Camp and you might just see the kids cheering with pride for their 5th trash bead that day or witness our Cub Scouts picking up their buddies cup so it doesn’t get left behind. While these accomplishments are still a stretch from a spotless bedroom. We are teaching our Scouts to take pride in our camp, respect the great outdoors and leave no trace.
5. Day Camp makes Cub Scouts REVERENT
Our Cub Scouts get to demonstrate their reverence everyday by participating in afternoon grace, reciting the Scout Oath and Law and participating in opening and closing flag ceremonies. Our Cub Scouts demonstrate their reverence for their community and country by participating in flag retirements; learning the process and respect for our flag.
Mostly importantly the main reason we want our kids to go today camp is because that’s what we promised them! Every time we sign a kid up for Cub Scouts we tell them all about the swimming, fishing and canoeing we will be doing but if we can’t get them to camp we can’t fulfill that promise. Bring your kids to camp. Let them make some memories. Let them get a little dirty. Let them live the Scout Oath and Law and let them HAVE SOME FUN!!!
