WCSO Helps Out with Cub Scouts Camporee at Boxwell

10Several members of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, Wilson EMA and other organizations demonstrated various tasks they perform on the job and the equipment they use for an estimated 150 Cub Scouts from surrounding area. The event, Cub Scout Camporee, was held April 29-May 1 at the Stahlman Camp in the Boy Scouts Boxwell Reservation in Wilson County. Metro Nashville Police Sgt. Chris Warner, who is chairman of the camping committee for the Scouts, said they have two events each year, one for Cub Scouts  in the spring and one for the Boy Scouts in the fall. In addition to camping, the cub scouts got  some experience in  activities such as archery, map and compass reading and ther events, culminating with a Saturday night camp fire and retirement of a tattered U.S. Flag. The Cub Scouts prepared,” Sgt. Warner said, and enjoyed all the events despite periods of rain. “That’s what Scouts do: they come prepared for anything.”6 1FullSizeRender4FullSizeRender782FullSizeRender
