This year the Foothills District’s Spring Family Camp was at Woodruff Scout Camp. Pack 417 brought a number of Scouts to camp. We had a few scouts who were assigned to help with camp set up and they began by holding a flag raising ceremony.
Our Pack, from Rocky Mount Elementary, won the spirit award too. We participated in all the great events planned that weekend.
The boys also learned the importance of taking care of the flag, as they retired one on Saturday night and each scout received part of the ashes in a bottle after the campout.
