The annual Chain Bridge Cub Scout Day Camp was held at the LDS Arlington Ward during the week of June 25 – June 29 this year. We had over 170 Cub Scouts attend the day camp to compete and participate in amazing activities including Scout Skills taught by members of Ship 1942, Shooting Sports instructed by members of Troop 350, Crafts and Games taught and instructed by Boy Scouts from various Troops across Chain Bridge, and numerous more fun activities. Our Cub Scout Day Camp was lucky enough to be able to acquire a ROCK WALL for a day where the participants at camp were able to compete in a race to see who could get to the top first!
Scouts who came to day camp this year were able to earn rank specific Shooting Sports patches, learn cool and useful Boy Scout knots, make interesting crafts to take home, develop new friends and great memories, but most importantly, our Scouts who came to camp had FUN!
All of this would not have been possible without the help of our amazing volunteers who dedicated their time and effort to make this camp fun and exciting for our campers. A HUGE shout out to our Camp Director, Erin Freeman, who has been on the day camp senior staff for over 10 years, and Tony Baker, our Program Director, who spent all his time out in the field helping our program areas function, and the rest of our staff who spent their time helping our Cubs learn through having fun!
We are currently in the process of beginning preparations for our day camp next year. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or helpful advice, please do not hesitate to reach out and let us know! We can’t put on great programs like this without the help of all of our families and volunteers like yourself!
