Peter, each year we have two sessions for Mom & me for all cub scouts and
a Webelos Overnight Weekend. The events are all the same except for timing.
The Mom & Me start Saturday at Noon, ends Sunday at Noon; the WOW starts
Friday Night and ends at 4:30 on Saturday. Each program uses the BB gun,
Archery range, waterfront (rowboats & swimming), Handicrafts, Athletics/Game
area. Each group is camping site based (4-5 sites * 12-18 Cubs) plus parent
and site leaders (2 adults plus 2-4 Den Chiefs). Food is cold cereal/milk/
juice/coffee for breakfast; hot dogs/buns/chips for lunch; BBQ chicken/
fixins for dinner; crackerbarrel smores/cookies/bug juice. Program staff plus
nurse, ranger crew, depending on season there is also camp staff available.
If the PR gets done right, there is a lot of interest, if not, the program
suufers a little. MoM & Me is end of June and mid August, WOW is mid June.
Numbers are 40-60 cubs & parents per event plus 15-20 staff.
