Day Three - 

Day Two -  Pack 145s train of Day Campers were seen through downtown Christiansburg as they walked to the Montogomery Museum for some time travel looking at really old and awesome historical pieces from around our county.  We toured the gardens, saw artwork, ate lunch under a huge shade tree and found a geocache.   Back at the train station, Cubs had fun with Monster and Superhero Math games.  We took scientific guesses on which method would be best to clean pennies.  Cubs got a good cleaning today while slip-sliding on a soapy tarp and then splashing around in the inflatible water feature.  

Day One - The Pack 145 Train Station was busy with fun today.  Cub Scout Day Campers learned the Science of Fire and then visited the Christiansburg Fire Department to learn the Safety of Fire.  Thank you to LT Yopp for the tour and helpful lessons.   A visit to the Armory Playground was a good time for everyone!  Science of rain clouds with shaving cream and food coloring made for dazzling waters.  Vinegar make our baking soda artwork get all fizzy.  Cub Scouts learned how codes in programming tell us step by step what a robot is supposed to do.  Thanks to the Vellines family for wet cool-down in the inflatable water feature. 

 

This Day Camps is organized full of creative and educational experiences, using natural surroundings to contribute to the physical, mental and social growth of Pack 145 Cub Scouts!  Planning is still occurring but might include
