Every spring, about 350 Cub Scouts and siblings from the San Fernando Valley go on a massive camp out at Camp Verdugo Oaks. The highlight of the weekend is Saturday Afternoon, when they launch hundreds of model rockets. Camp Director David Potter explains why this isn't just fun time for the kids, but also a formative experience.
