Cub Scouts from the Piedmont District enjoyed a fast-moving week of rocket launches, games, shooting sports, new skills, hiking—and more—at the Inskeep Farm in the shadow of Cedar Mountain, south of Culpeper, Virginia. Piedmont District Cubs Camp Director Russ Wetzel called the event “great fun!”
Wetzel declared he had as much fun as the Scouts, adding, “It rained on Monday and was off and on sunny the rest of the week. But, nobody cared about the weather. We were having too much fun!”
The Scouts made boats and held a “Raingutter Regatta.” They decorated rockets for launch during the week. The group hiked to the Cedar Mountain Civil War Battlefield where they discussed the history of the Civil War. When the wind was up, they flew kites. Then, they launched more rockets; practiced archery skills, enjoyed target practice with BB rifles, played horseshoes, and more!
Asked on Friday by one leader what they wanted to do next, one Scout said, “Everything! Let’s do everything again.”
