This year the New England Cub Scouts went from a nine month schedule to having scouting events throughout the whole year, which has been a success, says this year’s Cub Master Sara Krebs.
The problem that the scouts faced was that they could only meet once a month, which made it difficult to complete the necessary steps in the scout’s manual.
Also, by having scouts throughout the summer months, the better weather allowed the scouts to go camping and join in on other scouting adventures.
The New England Scouts will be headed to Indian Creek next weekend for their first camping trip this season. They also hope to go camping at Makoshika State Park and tour the dinosaur museum in Glendive, Mont.

This year 12 boys are involved in scouts in New England, and are led by Den Leaders Kristen Stecher, Sara Krebs, Linsey Hoerath, and Ray Traut. Together they worked on various projects, community service projects, and fun learning activities. Some of the projects included running the children’s games during Christmas in New England, recycling.
The boys learned about the changes of the community, and at every meeting there was always a craft for the boys.
The annual pinewood derby is always an event that the scouts look forward to.
This year’s first place winner was McKoy Stecher, second place was Joel Schulz, and coming in third was place Bradley Krebs.
The scouts also had a successful popcorn fundraiser this year, raising over $5,000 in popcorn sales, which was a huge accomplishment among only 12 scouts. Bradley Krebs was the top seller with over $1,600 in popcorn sales. Some of the money that was raised will be used for the scouts’ camping trips this summer.
“Were very appreciative of everybody who bought popcorn from our boys, it was very successful and they did a very awesome job,” Krebs said.
The scouts, along with their leaders, are looking for a few more community service projects this summer. If anyone has a project in mind, or in need of some help, they are encouraged to notify any of the scout leaders.
