It's not called the Wild West for nothing. This coming 10th through the14th of June, Cub Scouts are invited by the Biscoe Insurance Group, Inc. to Williamson County Regional Park for a chance to experience the Wild Wild West.

In 2013, Cub Scout Day Camp programs across all of Central Texas operate under the same theme, "Wild Wild West." However, each camp contains distinctly different activities depending on what the venue will or will not allow (i.e. swimming, canoeing, etc.). Day Camps last as long as five days and as
