The pandemic has kept kids cooped up inside for months.
But could scouting be the saving grace for some sense of normalcy?
Cub Scout Pack 333 certainly hopes so.
They spent the day hosting a drive-through sign-up and information session meant to help kids in grades K-5 find something new as we head into the fall.
But the outdoor--and occasionally virtual--activities are meant to be an inclusive along with safer approach.
"Cub Scouting is very family-oriented," said Cubmaster Todd Scott. "So even though we're going to be doing as many activities as a group and outside together, there's many things the family can do together. We'll be giving them resources and activities to do so they can work on their projects and advancements, and then we will come together."
"I liked when we got to go down and camp on the Otters' field and the Otters players taught us to play baseball," Wolf Scout Adam Scott said of his favorite activity so far.
But keeping kids occupied doesn't come cheap.
So the pack is finding some innovative ways to adjust their usual popcorn sales, to make sure the Cub Scouts have every opportunity to learn and grow.
