Jungle Book, Cub Scout Day Camp

Jungle Book

The 2016 version of the Jungle Book is on Netflix right now, so you may want to watch it as a family. I am suggesting this because many aspects of the Cub Scout program are based on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book (e.g. calling your helpful adult Akela). If you watch it, I think you’ll see how the story has influenced Cub Scouts, especially the Wolf Den.

Cub Scout Day Camp: “Bug Hunters”

The Potomac District holds Cub Scout Day Camp each year somewhere nearby. This year camp will be June 19-23 at Lois Green – Sligo Izaak Walton League, Gaithersburg. Activities might include archery, BB guns, crafts, fishing, nature, scout skills, sports, and STEM.

This camp is run by volunteers, and the pack has to provide 2 adults each day for each group of 10 scouts. I am asking early to gauge interest, and to find out if we have any teachers or parents/grandparents with increased availability in the summer. The fee starts out at $190 if paid by April 23rd, and registration is done at the pack level. Please let me know if you are interested and/or able to volunteer.

Personally, I could cover a day or two, but this requirement makes attending the camp tough. Sometimes it’s quite a task to cover the 5 days with enough parents.
