Do Your Best
Rising Star 1st Year Webelos Campout
Camp Bovay - April
The Webelos attended six sessions with their den. Every effort was made to complete the requirements for the Webelos Activity Badges offered. There were two sporting belt loops sessions (Archery and BB Shooting) and a Boulder Wall and Rope Bridge session "just for fun". Thank you to all the leaders, scouts and parents for making this a memorable experience for myself and the wonderful folks that joined in to make the Program Sessions such a rewarding time for all.
