Cub Scout Pack 19 from Langhorne is welcoming first through fifth grade boys into its ranks. Scouts and their families recently returned from a camping trip to Coast Guard Base Cape May. Scouts toured the base and experienced first-hand the life of new recruits, watching them drill in formation, and run obstacle courses, and awoke in their tents at dawn to the sound of recruits doing pushups with drill instructors barking orders.
Scouts also explored ships used for rescue operations and chasing pirates. One memorable encounter occurred when the boys ran into Admiral June Ryan while eating breakfast in the Galley. A leader of 6,000 personnel, she discussed helping the recruits through the tough weeks of boot camp, but how it’s a life changing event they never regret. Scouts also visited Cape May attractions including the lighthouse and Wildwood Aviation Museum.
