- Cub Scout Resident Camp - Camp Kootaga

- July 25 - 28th, 2013 -

What fun our Cubs had at Camp Kootaga. They had two full days of cub activities and did not seem to run out of energy. They earned five (5) belt loops which included; Archery, BB Shooting, Ultimate (Frisbee Golf), Swimming, and Wildlife. They also learned about and participated in a Challenging Outdoor Physical Encounter (COPE) activity and launched pop bottle rockets (what fun that was) in Space Safari. Each afternoon there was a two (2) hour free time period for which Archery, BB Shooting, and Swimming were the most popular activities attended.

And of course there were other activities that were there, for example, the rope bridge was very popular with the cubs.

In the evenings we attended camp sponsored campfire activities also. We also maintained a campfire in our own camp area for our additional late evening activities (smoors, hotdogs, etc.). We met cubs from several other cub packs and made some good friends of them.

At the final campfire, a lot of cub packs did skits and songs. We did the song, "Do You Know the Muffin Man", which involves audience participation as it goes on and was a great hit. See the video on Facebook at "Cub Scout Pack 437".

All-in-all, we are looking forward to next year's camp and hope to have a larger group go and enjoy all of the Camp Kootaga's "Fun with a Purpose" activities.
