DENVER, CO - The young Cub Scouts of Denver spent their day camp with some owls . . .  except these owls come with nice racks and tight shorts!

That's right, Hooters girls sponsored the Cub Scout's "Frontier District Day Camp."

Michelle Kettleborough did a double take when picking up her 7-year-old son.

"I step back for a second and I take a look and I'm like 'Are they wearing Hooters visors?' wait a minute."

Another parent, Marsha Corn calls it "polar opposites of what Boy Scouts is supposed to be."

The Frontier District Boy Scout's Facebook shared photos of the scouts shooting arrows and making crafts, but no sign of Hooters.

The Hooters Colorado Facebook page originally posted photos with the boys, but took them down when the "ta-ta" trouble started.

As for the Boy Scouts of America, they do not see a problem with the sponsorship.

In a statement they say, in part,  "a restaurant extended support to help make a local Cub Scout day camp possible . . . the group of trained volunteers mistakenly wore the wrong attire."

Now, parents are reconsidering the camps all together.

Kettleborough says her family is questioning whether or not to keep her son in the organization next year.

"Do a good turn daily," is the Boy Scout slogan. Sounds like turnin' heads is what this scout camp did!
