Second camp out with the Cub Scouts

The weather was perfect for the outdoors. The Cisco Kid loves playing and running around in nature. I think he looks forward to climbing trees with his friends. The first night we roasted some marshmallows and made smores. The second day we had many activities to do. We completed Compass and map, ultimate Frisbee, BB gun, Archery and basketball achievements. The Cisco Kid also got a jump on the Arrow of light requirement.

These boys where willing to climb anything that was at least three feet off the ground.

Fire Station Den Meeting

Now that the Cisco Kid is a Webelo he must work on some requirements along with the rest of the Den.  Part of the readymand requirements is first aid so I took all the boys to our local Fire station. They are a hazardous material station as well as a rescue station. The fire men were all so helpful in giving all the boys so much information about first aid and how they handle hazardous materials.
Showing the boys how to stop bleeding and tie a tourniquet.

Showing the boys how to do the Heimlich maneuver. 

They went through the whole truck telling the boys what all the equipment was used for.  
The full medical and medicine case.  
The equipment used to ground an area of all electrical charges.  They do this when the area has explosive materials around.    
This was a great learning experience and now the boys can receive their redayman pin completing the requirements.
