“Space, the Final Frontier” became more than just a slogan for the Cub Scouts of the Sinclair District when they entered their summer camp in Port Orchard at Van Zee Park last week.

“This year’s theme was ‘Cub Scout Blast Off,’” said Sinclair District Director Sean Neal. “We decided to do a space theme this year.”

Dressed in red camp T-shirts, all 126 participants ranging in age from 6 to 9 years old, the boys engaged in activities such as “Astroid Archery” and “Cosmic Cooking.”

They navigated through treacherous obstacle courses balancing above a small pool of water, shot BB guns at targets and launched water filled rockets high into the sky.

The day progressed for the Cub Scouts with a “Touch the Fire Truck” event where South Kitsap Fire and Rescue explained the uses of the truck and then shot water from the fire hose allowing the boys a moment to cool off.

The camp ended with an evening campfire and memories of the fun filled week they experienced.
