Cubs To Camp At Schools Seeking Scouts To Sign Up

If you see a campground on your local elementary school's playground, it's just an invitation to join the Cub Scouts.

Volunteer Boy Scouts from the Horseshoe Trail District of the Pennsylvania Dutch Council will flood Lancaster- and Lebanon-area schools, setting up mock campsites on school playgrounds and talk up the advantages of being a Cub Scout in classrooms for first through fifth graders.

Boys will hear about the program, sample Cub Scout activities and take home a free CD with Cub Scout games and videos or a Boys' Life magazine.

Volunteers also will attend open houses to mingle with the boys' parents and to give them information about Scouting's values. Sign- ups will be held at various schools, churches and fire halls through September.


Every boy who joins will receive a free "I Joined Cub Scouts" T- shirt and two free tickets  Dutch Wonderland.

Interested boys, parents and guardians can attend the sign-up in their neighborhood or call or e-mail the Boy Scout Office at 717- 394-4063 or Find general Cub Scouting information at
