Our Pack considers attending Day Camp or Webelos camp towards the Summertime
For Day Camp, the Pack picks the week, organizes the adults, carpools to
the camp, and makes sure the Scouts have a good time.
For resident camp, there is even more extensive planning.
We also count one of the Scout Nights at the local Class A baseball farm team
games as a summertime event.
Why throw up roadblocks for the boys to earn the award? Any activity that keeps
the Pack together over the summer improves the program.
