Scouts attend Webelos Camp in Texas

July 6, 2011

Webelos Scouts from Cub Scout Pack 396, chartered by First Methodist Church of Antlers, attended Webelos Camp in Pottsboro, TX at Camp James Ray (named for Mr. Ray’s 35 years of scouting service in Idabel, OK).

Scouts enjoyed fun activities such as swimming, stick hockey, dodge ball, human foosball, hiking, paint ball and tether ball. They also attended classes to earn Webelos pin of forestry, naturalist, readyman, engineering, shooting sports and climbed the boulder wall. Scouts also took a class on duct tape, making items for competition such as a race car, archery protective guards, gilli hat and a wallet. Scouts also made catapults using sticks found in the forest, duct tape and a plastic spoon.

After hiking over 15 miles during the week going for different activities, one would think that the scouts all returned skinny and boney but not so after being fed wonderfully delicious meals that consisted of lasagna chicken, homemade biscuits and gravy, fajitas, etc. All meals were accompanied by a huge salad bar.

The last night of camp included a special “Woodchip” ceremony for the Webelos II scouts and a dodge ball tournament for the Webelos I scouts.

Pack 396 also received the following awards: ‘A’ Pack award for completing several requirements, including environmental service project; Order of Arrow Camp Participation award for having over 50% of each den attending camp and Baden-Powell award for completing fire safety camp, including having a daily fire marshal.

The members who attended were: Leaders Jodi Sutterfield, Norma Wesley and Pamela Massengale. Children: Maverick Maroney, Wyatt Haybrock, Lane Morris, Chahta Morris, Morgan Sutterfield and Bobby Williams.
