Staff mtg 011-1

Camp Josepho’s Cub Parent Weekend will kick off the Cub Scout camping season on March 18-20. We have two more events scheduled at Camp Josepho and one at Camp Whitsett. Cub Parent Weekend is ideal for new campers because all you need is a tent and sleeping bag, at Camp Whitsett, you only need a sleeping bag. It’s still fun for the more seasoned camper, we do everything for you. Our volunteer staff cooks all your meal, takes care of all the program activities, and makes sure we keep your scout moving. Cub Scouts will have fun with Archery, BB Shooting, Chess, Table Tennis and many more adventures. For information and to register click on the links.
