Cub Scouts learn outdoor skills at Twilight CampBy Justin Averette Published 9:02pm Monday, August 5, 2013
Cub Scouts from the Prairie District are spending evenings this week at Foscue Park learning about archery, wildlife, first aid and more.
The first day of “Twilight Camp” was held Monday, during which 11 scouts learned about archery, bird watching and how to to build a bird house.
For the bird watching, the scouts used a canopy of wooden “birds” built by volunteer Don Shelf, who joked the fake birds weren’t scared away as easily by the boys as real ones.
The three-day camp will continue Tuesday, when scouts will learn about first aid with AMSTAR Ambulance and astronomy, and Wednesday, when water safety and wildlife conservation will be covered.
