Five Oswego Hospital registered nurses each volunteered an evening this summer to help support a local Cub Scout camp.
The Cub Scouts, who were from throughout Oswego County and in grades kindergarten through fifth, took part in the weeknight twilight camp held at the Oswego County Airport. The theme for the camp, take flight, included touring a small private airplane along with taking part in related crafts and science activities each night.
The nurses ensured that the Scouts were safe throughout the camp and lent a helping hand when needed. “The Cub Scouts are an important part of our community and I was happy to volunteer my time,” said Kathryn Pagliaroli, Oswego Health Director of Clinical Quality and Patient Safety.
