Cub Scout Summer Camping

Every Cub Scout should be given the opportunity and encouraged to participate in one of the Cub Scout Camps (click on link for schedule) this summer.  There is something for every Cub Scout.  Golden Eagle Day Camps are offered at Camp Don Harrington (June 15-18) and in Hereford (June 10-13).  Cub Scout Resident Camp (June 5-7 or June 12-14) is for scouts who are now in the 1st & 2nd grades and want a week-end overnight experience at Camp Don Harrington with a parent.  Webelos Resident Camps are especially for scouts who are now in the 3rd & 4th grades.  Webelos Resident Camp is offered at Camp Don Harrington (June 19-21 or June 26-28).  Go to and click on the Camping tab to make your reservations now!

There is something for every Cub Scout, including Kindergarteners who are recruited this spring!  Tiger Twilight (June 4 & 5) (click on link for more information and registration form) is a special evening camp for new Tigers and their families.  Remember, these camps won’t happen without your help.  If you can help out on staff, let Doug Bergman know.

Hereford Pack Camp Tumbleweed Sign-up Night

Hereford Packs 50/52/54, Bovina Pack 18 & Walcott Pack 57 scouts and their families to encouraged to come to First United Methodist Church on Monday, June 1, anytime from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm to learn more about and sign-up for Camp Tumbleweed Twilight camp.

National Youth Leadership Training

Boy Scout troops have plenty of willing youth leaders, many of whom are lacking the skills that would help them be effective.  The National Youth Leadership Training (click on link for more information) course offered at Camp Don Harrington from June 21-26 builds on troop level training by presenting concepts and work processes which result in participants understanding and employing leadership skills that will benefit both them and their troops.  The course is open to all Boy Scouts 13 years old or older who are at least First Class scouts.  Applications (click on link for registration form) will be accepted through June 4.

Eagle Project Reviews & Eagle Boards of Review

Adult troop leaders (not mothers, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, etc.) of Boy Scouts needing either Eagle Project Reviews or Eagle Boards of Review during June or July should contact Golden Eagle Advancement Chairman Gary Ries at 358-0552 to schedule them.
