BYRAM – On February 13th, Venturing Crew 276 of Byram hosted a skills instruction event for the Cub Scouts of Pack 180 of Branchville. The Crew members taught the Cub Scouts skills that helped the younger scouts in their rank advancements. It was the second event that the Venture Crew had done with Pack 180.
The event was split into stations which were run by teams of Crew members. Each team taught a specific skill to the Cub Scouts. At each station, the Crew members demonstrated the skills to the Cub Scouts. Then it was the younger Scouts’ turn to demonstrate their newfound knowledge for the Crew members. The skills taught were first aid for cold-weather related conditions, orienteering skills with map and compass, cold weather safety, and first aid carries and splints.
This event also allowed the Crew members to fulfill their own award requirements by allowing them to teach and mentor the Cub Scouts, which are key points of the Venturing program.
