For Cubs, we have a 3 day Day Camp July 8,9,10 (Monday day, Tuesday day, Wednesday afternoon/evening). I hope to get someone else to go to camp with my son and me. There will also be a webelos camporee the second weekend in June for the guys who just became a webelos and the ones who have in 1 year. There is new leadership and it sounds the same pretty much, but more exciting at the same time. It's being run by cub leaders with kids in the program currently and not a really old guy who's kids are grown. So, I expect it will be good for 2-3 years, then maybe nobody will run it after that?
For Boy Scouts, our troop is going to summer camp the last full week in June. currently, they don't have enough spots for all they boys who want to attend. They generally "take the rest of the summer off". I'm going to attempt to break that tradition, even if I need to plan something in July and August myself.
For my girl scouts, our service unit is once again invited to camp with a nearby service unit the first weekend in June... but at at different location than last year. My girls have "voiced their opinions" about not having to participate in all the round robin activities that the daisy/brownie/junior troops generally do. They just want scheduled archery time and they are not even so keen on pool time since it's often so chilly yet. I told them they would have to make their own schedule for approval if they are allowed to opt out of the general rotation. There is only 1 other older girl troop who would attend and last year, they mostly weren't even there except to sleep and eat since they had sports stuff and other things they were running back and forth to- they lived a little closer to the camp than us... this year that's not the case. I don't know if they will go. It was sad that my troop last year was the "oldest" at camp out of 2 service units- and they were only finishing 6th and 7th graders with a single 9th grader thrown in. I don't know what else they will want to do. Resident camps for girls are pretty much individual choices without your troop. My daughter wants to go, yet hasn't sat down to make her camp choices- all are themed rather than just camping like boy scouts.
