The council welcomed members of the local media to Camp Yocona today as part of our first annual Camp Media Day.  Visitors enjoyed lunch in the dining hall followed by a tour of camp complete with a trip down the COPE tower zip line. WTVA and WCBI both ran stories during evening broadcast.

CubYocona 2013 highlights "Everyday Heroes"

CubYocona 2013 was held at Camp Yocona, May 26 - June 1.  Cub Scouts were treated to a jam-packed three days of beautiful weather and camping fun while honoring our local law enforcement, fire, EMS and emergency responders.

Mornings were full of theme related activities including search and rescue, shooting sports and field games while afternoons were primarily devoted to rank advancement.  Cubs were able to watch a jaws of life demonstration as well as a medi-vac helicopter landing in the activity field.  Evening programs were bright and spirited as the staff conducted the opening campfire while the cubs handled the closing campfire.
