Hello Southern Star

I want to thank all those that supported this month’s recruiting efforts during School Night for Scouting.  We ended August 2016 with a total of 623 Scouts.  Due to your efforts we now have 779 Scouts in the program, 412 of those being Cub Scouts. 

Typically, units will lose 30% of their membership during the next few months.  Going camping is what they signed up for and there are several events around the corner such as Spook-o-ree at Camp Wisdom the weekend of 28 – 30 October.  Cub Scouts can attend Parent-n-Pal as a pack, den, or individual family. The ultimate camping experience is one-on-one with your son creating lasting memories. Moms or Dads or both can attend. However, another adult family member may attend in place of a parent.  (**Note: If there are two Scouts in your family, it is okay to attend with one parent)

Important: ONLY registered Cub Scouts CAN attend camp (no siblings).

Online registration is available at: https://circle10.camp-master.com/default.aspx

For more information, contact Karen Thunert at karen.thunert@scouting.org


Parent-n-Pal is an action-packed weekend camping experience for a Cub Scout and his parent/partner at a Scout camp, doing fun activities like shooting sports such as BB Guns and archery, games, horseback riding and more!


It is the perfect outdoor experience for all Cub Scouts. All meals and program are provided for you – you only need to bring your own tent, sleeping bag, flashlight, camp chair and personal camping gear.  COST is $60 per Person*. Covers four meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday and breakfast on Sunday), a patch and all activity items. *Scholarships available upon request (deadline October 21, 2016)
