More than 340 Cub Scouts Attend Silver Comet Day Camps

Posted on Jul 15 2017 - 7:51pm

Our June 2017 Silver Comet Day Camps at Kennesaw United Methodist Church and Bethany United Methodist Church saw over 340 Cub Scouts spend a "Creepy Crawly" week of excitement, fun, learning, and exercise as they tackled a full program of activities and events and formed their own "Bug Squad".
More than 40 Siblings,130 Boy Scout and Venturer Den Chiefs, and 25 Teen Assistants (Girl Scouts and older Sisters) were right there with the Cub Scouts helping with every part of the week’s program and sharing in the fun.

And, of course, guiding the whole show and watching over all of the Youth were more than 200 Adults who so generously gave their time and focused their thoughts on the safety of all of the Youth and the quality and success of every activity and event throughout the week.

A standing Round of applause goes to all of the Adult Volunteers, and we especially recognize our Camp Directors and Leaders who spent many months preparing this fantastic experience for our Silver Comet Cub Scouts and their Families.
On behalf of the Silver Comet District, “Thank You” to our Camp Directors Dalia Wyman, Clint Pope, and Lindsey Nolan, our Program Directors Jennifer Kane and Torie Shores, and our Admin/Registrars Addie Outlaw and Cathie McCabe, and many, many others for two great weeks of Cub Scout Day Camp.
And let's not forget our District Executives Kevin and Drew who provided their support throughout the planning stages, then donned their tshirts and joined in the fun.
