The Church of St. Mary Cub Scout Troop had 15 excited cub scouts and their moms attend the Catholic Committee on Scouting and Camp Fire (CCSCF) Fall Retreat for their Mom & Me Camp Out on October 15th.
The group caravan left St. Mary at 8:30AM and headed for Camp Waluhili on Lake Ft. Gibson for a day and night filled with fun and scouting. The boys took part in various activities including, craft cross paintings, leather crafts (demonstrated by St. Mary's own, Bob and Virginia McClain), obstacle course challenge, character building & team games, as well as an impromptu nature hike and lake shore clean-up! The boys also enjoyed their time down on the lake throwing rocks and finding hidden treasures.
Saturday evening, everyone celebrated Mass with Fr. Leo Ahanotu of St. Clement in Bixby, followed immediately by a large campfire and skits. As the boys climbed into their sleeping bags, either in the bunk house or tents, I know us Moms were very thankful for the opportunity to fellowship with one another and spend quality time with our sons.
A special thank you to Anne Daubney, Retreat Committe Chair, and Dennis Zvacek, Diocesan Committee Member on Scouting and Camp Fire, for all their wonderful work making the retreat great!
