(OMAHA, NE) – September 22, 2013 – Nearly a thousand Cub Scouts and their families are set to bowl this Sunday, September 22, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Cub Scout Day at Sempeck’s Bowling and Entertainment in Elkhorn, NE. This is an amazing, unprecedented response to a single event!
This kind of response is indicative of an increasing and renewed interest in Scouting for families and boys in 1st through 5th grades. Boy Scouts of America had reported a slow decline in numbers of new and returning boys joining Cub Scouts in the last few years.
This year each district in the Mid-America Council, Boy Scouts of America created new and exciting events to interest new and returning Cub Scouts. And, it’s working!
Boys and families are participating in Cub Scout events, such as Cub Scout Bowling at Sempeck’s Bowling and Entertainment in Valley this Sunday – and signing up for Cub Scouts!
This Sunday all pre-registered Cub Scouts and family members will enjoy FREE Cosmic bowling and shoe rental! Cub Scouts will earn their Bowling Belt Loop! See flyer.
