Day Camp
The Dan Beard Day Camp was a huge success this year with over 56 Cub Scouts from all over the district in attendance. This year’s theme was Cub Craft, based on the popular game Mind Craft. The Cub Scouts loved the interactive Cub Craft activities that allowed them to bring the game to life while knocking out numerous rank achievements.

We would like to thank our Camp Director, Linda Stinson and Program Director, Jay Reilly for all of their hard work in making Camp such a success. We would also like to thank all of our Staff members and Den leaders who volunteered their time the entire week. Without their dedication to the program we could not have put on such a wonderful Day Camp for the Cub Scouts. If you are interested in learning more about how you can volunteer in 2016 please email Ian Weir at iweir@mtcbsa.org for more information.
