CAMDEN, Maine — Many summertime adventures await The Cub Scouts of Pack 200. Their active agenda is filled with coastline camping, an exploration into Maine history, high flying adventure, fun in the waters of Great Pond, and a trip to cheer on the Seadogs. In addition to the fun, physical fitness, education, and development of practical skills, the boys will have the opportunity to earn their Summertime Pack Award for their participation in these activities.

The boys of Pack 200 have two events behind them and many more ahead. A camp out at Camden Hills State Park on Father’s Day weekend and a trip to Webelos Resident at Camp Bomazeen on Great Pond in Belgrade kicked off their summertime activities.

For the July camp-out scouts will set up camp and pitch their tents next to the Maine shore. Outdoor activities will educate the boys on the resources and recreation available on the coast. One meal will allow the scouts to enjoy the fruits of their labor by foraging for the main course.

The Pine Tree Council will host the next event at Camp Bomazeen in Belgrade, the first weekend in August. This event is a scaled down version of a summer camp with an overnight stay. Scouts will be able to enjoy all of the activities the camp has to offer, including Swimming and Canoeing in Great Pond.

For the second weekend in August, scouts will explore historic Fort Knox in Prospect on the west bank of the Penobscot River on Saturday. Then Sunday they are off to Monkey C Monkey Do in Wiscasset for some high flying adventure on their zip lines and adventure course.

In Mid-August scouts will have the opportunity to stay at Camp Bomazeen in Belgrade again. This event will give scouts the chance to stay for 2 nights and extend the outdoor fun and activities on the sports fields and sandy beach.

The summer schedule will wrap up with a Pine Tree Council sponsored scout night enjoying America’s past-time at Hadlock Field cheering on the Portland Seadogs.

The Camden Area Cub Scouts, Pack 200, is chartered by The First Congregational Church of Camden. This local pack serves as an enrichment program for boys in first through fifth grade from Camden, Lincolnville, and the Five Town Communities. Cub Scouts is a fun educational experience concerned with twelve core values designed to build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service to the community.
