Cub Scouts, get ready for the best week of Cub Scouting and get registered to attend the Indian Springs District Twilight
Camp. This is a full week event, held during the evening hours of 5:00pm to 9:00 pm, where our Cub Scouts and Webelos
can do some great activities, learn some neat things, take part in BB Shooting and Archery, take part in some cool arts and
crafts and make great strides in their advancement. The theme this year is "Bug Squad" so you know it will be an event that
the boys will want to be a part of.
Twilight Camp is held June 5 - 9 at Ithica Elementary School. The registration is now open and can be
accessed by following

National Youth Leader Training
The summer is here and it is a great time for youth leaders to get more advanced training to better assist them in their unit
and as they move beyond. NYLT is a must for new Senior Patrol Leaders and Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders or any older
Scout in your troop that shows the potential for such a position to learn about leadership and the running of a Scout troop
by the patrol method. Held at Bert Adams Scout Reservation in the summer and a course between Christmas and New Year’
s Day, this course is run by Scouts with adult guidance, just like a Scout troop would be run in their home troops.
