At Camp "Pirates Cove" Brinkley this summer, they ran 2 Cubs sessions and
2 Webelos sessions, the only difference being that they emphasized work on
acheivements for the Webelos. All sessions were for 4 full days and 3
nights. The first Cubs session was attended by about 175 boys. My group
went to the 2nd Cubs session, which ran up against the July 4th weekend
and only had about 35 kids (with about 20 adults). They were expecting
Webelos groups of 250 for the next session and 350 for the final group.
