Pack 406 holds carnival

| March 8, 2016

COSHOCTON – Cub Scout Bears are required to make a carnival game so Pack 406 decided to turn the necessary assignment into a recruiting event.

Their carnival for boys in kindergarten through fifth grade was held March 7 at Burt Avenue Wesleyan Church. The event featured snacks and several games including Justin Owens ring toss. The 9-year-old was the one Bear required to make a game and he was having fun running it and participating in the other activities.

“I like scouts because we get to have this carnival and do all these games,” Owens said.

There was more to the event though than just having fun.

“He had to make it, play it, get others to play it and then latter we will discuss it and talk about what worked and didn’t work,” said Janice Sycks, who is Owens’ den leader.

She has been involved with Scouts since her son was a Tiger and he is now 12 and in Boy Scouts.

“I like seeing them grow as they learn things they might not necessarily get at school,” Sycks said.

Chris Lorenz, who helped organize the carnival, was happy to say that Pack 406 picked up two kindergarteners who will join in on their activities.

“There is a new program where kindergarteners can get started before first grade,” she said. “They can come get started with us, have fun and then on June 1 become Tigers, which is what first graders are.”

Scout Master Dale Arnold encouraged area boys to get involved in Scouts.

“It gets them away from games and outside,” he said.
