Not In Jersey: Cub Scout Camp Cub Scout Camp - Not In Jersey

Cub Scout Camp

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Last week, Zachary attended Cub Scout day camp. In order to attend, each cub had to bring a parent with them for at least one of the days of camp. I attended on Wednesday. Sadly for me, Wednesday was not a day that included exciting activities such as archery, BB gun shooting, or rock wall climbing, but instead included more artistic types of activities, as well as fishing.

The whole week overall was a lot of fun for Zachary. For a mom hanging out at camp, it wasn’t so much fun! But I’m glad Zachary got to have the experience (not including the sunburn around his collar and what looked like poison ivy on his arm!).
