100-plus Scouts participate in today's Freeze-Out at Camp Stambaugh


It’s much more likely you will find 11-year-old Andrew J. Neff camping or enjoying school than seeing him with panty hose containing an orange inside protruding from his head.

Nevertheless, the Austintown boy spent part of his weekend wearing that unconventional combination.

“I like camping and all of the people are nice,” said Andrew, a Frank Ohl Intermediate School fifth-grader and member of Austintown-based Cub Scout Pack 184.

Andrew found quite a few nice youngsters who joined him in an activity called “Elephant March.” It was one of several activities that were part of the “A Minute to Win It” station, one of five that made up Saturday’s Whispering Pines Cub Scout Freeze-Out 2013 gathering at Camp Stambaugh, 3712 Leffingwell Road.

Andrew was one of an estimated 108 boys age 6 to 11 from Mahoning County and Hubbard in Trumbull County who attended the Freeze-Out, sponsored by the Whispering Pines District Greater Western Reserve Council Boy Scouts of America. The event continues from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Saturday at the camp.
