Two excellent ideas are:
- Join the Boy Scouts on their next Camporee.
- Summer Day Camp
At Camporee have each Pack submit a booth idea for the Cubs. each pack
resposible for providing people to work the both., and let the boys have
fun...Cubs that go--get the regular Camporee patch!
Summer camp is wonderful too! If your district doesnt operate a Day Camp
they should its a blast.
