Mother Day Super Cub Parent Weekend

May 8-10, 2015

Scouts and dads there are two way you can be a hero to mom. First, you can give mom her special alone time, she can enjoy the quiet calm of an empty house all by herself. While her loving Cub Scout can make her a super Mother’s Day craft to bring home on her special day. Or you can send mom on a Mother’s Day adventure, her Cub Scout can pamper her and give her the treat of spending quality time together. Is there a better way to spend time with mom than making her sleep on the ground? It will be a Mother’s Day weekend to remember forever. Like every Cub Parent event our outstanding volunteer staff will work with your scout to ensure they have a great time. Just bring a tent and sleeping bag and we will do the rest, the food is prepared by our expert kitchen staff, the crafts will keep you and your Cub busy between your range time.
