This past weekend our Howler Cubs (3rd year) went on the biggest adventure of their Scouting Journey so far. They attended the Dorchester International Brotherhood Camporee (D.I.B.C.). With 2600 youth and 300 staff this was by far the largest event they have ever seen. The Credit Hills Armadillo sub-camp had about 148 youth in attendance from around the area and the event itself was attended by members from Scouts Canada, Girl Guides of Canada, Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of America.
The Howlers were excited to be put into patrols with some older Scouts from 1st Acton Scouts who, as patrol leaders took them to some of the over 300 events that the camp had prepared for the youth.
This camp was all about allowing the kids to see what it was going to be like at Scouts, to be treated like young adults and to be given much more independence then they would normally have at the Cub Scout Level. The kids loved it.
From Silk Screening, to Riflery and Canoing the kids were busy all day. A live band capped off Saturday night festivities.
1st Milton Scouts, and our 3rd Year Cubs will definitely be back to DIBC for years to come.
