Scouts learn Indian heritage at camp

Cub Scouts

Some local scouts are spending the weekend learning about American Indian heritage.

About 150 youngsters are taking part in the Webelos Scout Resident Camp at Camp Stambaugh in Canfield.

The group is made up of 4th- and 5th-graders from around the region.

The weekend is full of activities with many centered around ways for the youngsters to earn achievement badges.

“Patriotic things like flag folding and respect for the flag,” said Program Director Jim Rapone. “They’re going to go on nature hikes. They’re going to be shooting BB guns, archery. They’ll be at the pool doing their various aquatic activities. It’s going to be a real fun filled packed weekend.”

The camp runs through Sunday. Another 150 scouts will take part next weekend.
