Over one hundred Cub Scouts came out for the Greenwich Council Boy Scout annual Cub-o-ree on Saturday, June 4. The “Intergalactic” themed event included Lego, robotics, flying saucers, stomp rockets, BB shooting, archery, shelter building and leather stamping. This annual Cub Scout event is an exciting overnight camping experience that gives parents and their sons an opportunity to experience Scouting and everything it has to offer through activities like camping, games, crafts, campfires, and quality time with the family.

“It was great to see the Cub Scouts and their families carrying their gear to their campsites” said Heather Brown Lowthert, Program Director for the Council. “Sleeping in a tent, cooking dinner over a campfire and just hanging around camp with friends is an incredible experience for these young boys.” The night ended with campfire skits performed at the outdoor amphitheater and light sabers to light the way back to campsites.

Camp Seton is located at Seton Scout Reservation at 363 Riversville in Greenwich and is owned by the Greenwich Council, BSA.

Adventure, leadership, service and learning, especially in the outdoors, have remained essential to the Greenwich Scouting experience since its inception in 1912. Nearly 1,750 local youth participate in fun programs, such as the Fishing Derby, run by 250 dedicated volunteers, all of which help prepare local boys and girls for life.  With over 20 partnering organizations and Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Venturing and Exploring opportunities in Greenwich, Connecticut, there’s never been a better time to join the Scouting community.
