Cub Scout Day Camp provides fun and builds foundations

Surrounded by their Cub Scout mates standing statue-stiff presenting the Boy Scout Salute, six youths in green T-shirts marched smartly toward the three flag poles. A junior staff member followed close behind in lock-step. At the proper distance from the flag staffs, they were called to a halt. From there they were given the command "Retrieve the Colors." In smart precision, each scout took his preplanned place; as the flags were lowered by one, the other reached and gathered his respective flag into his arms preventing it from touching the ground. In the distance, a trumpet sounded "Taps" signaling the end of another day at Day Camp. Together, the young scouts folded the flags and presented them to the scout master for storage until they would be raised the next morning.
