The Anderson County Park was turned into a bustling campground on Friday night as over 150 adults and children headed to the park for the annual kickoff of the Anderson County Cub Scouts.

Cub master of pack 38, Travis Huber, explained that the pack holds an overnight camp out every year as a fun way to start the scouting year.  Starting Friday night and ending on Saturday afternoon, the scouts got to have lots of fun. “We had an absolute blast,” Travis said.

With exploding growth of the pack, Travis said that 155 adults and children attended the first night with two thirds of them staying overnight, sleeping in tents.  With a thousand Nerf darts, the children enjoyed a long Nerf War before camping out.

On Saturday, they then got to build their own small model boats to race in a rain gutter regatta as well as race the cubmobiles.  Dairy Queen and Little Caesars also provided discounted meals for the scouts.

“It’s been great,” Travis said as he explained that this will be his last year as cub master before moving on, helping with the Boy Scouts.  He said that with all the new interest with the cub scouts, there are many new parents wanting to volunteer in leadership roles, and they are excited to keep the momentum going.
