Volunteers help Scouts learn plenty at day camp

A hearty thank-you to the volunteers, parents and kids that attended the 2009 Tustumena District Cub Scout Day Camp. This year we had the joy of having Nancy Veal and her 4-H folks come and give a worthwhile talk on nutrition, healthy living and predator and prey relations.

Roy Smith and Charlie Black, in conjunction with the Kenai Peninsula Chapter of the Safari Club, taught Scouts archery and BB gun safety while letting the kids have a chance to practice those lessons.
