2018 Day Camp

Posted in: Pack News by rlgray on

Cub Scout Day Camp is a Council-organized, themed, 5-day program for rising 1st-5th grade boys and girls aged 6-11, and is offered at a very reasonable cost.

Families are expected to fill at least one volunteer-day.
Boy and Girl Scouts can earn Service Hours for volunteering.

The daily program centers on the ideals of Scouting and the outdoor  program:

  • Shooting Sports (Archery, BB guns and Slingshots)
  • Fishing
  • Sports and Games
  • Nature Crafts and Cooking
  • Skits and Songs
  • Midday programs (Demonstrations and guest speakers)

If you have a friend, they do not have to be a Scout to attend!
Sisters of attending Cub Scouts in the same age range are also welcome, and childcare is provided for volunteers.

2018 Rank Up Picnic

Posted in: Pack News by rlgray on May 5, 2018

When: 29 May 2018, 5:30pm
Where: Bond Park Kiwanis Shelter

In celebration of our final meeting of the 2017-2018 Scouting “year”, Pack 200 families are invited to join us for a cookout and Pack meeting.  Please invite prospective scouts and their families to attend!

For the cookout, the Pack will provide hamburgers, hotdogs, condiments, napkins, plates, and utensils, ice and drinks.
We ask that the Dens provide the following items to share with the rest of the Pack:

  • Dens 3 & 4:   Chips
  • Dens 5 & 6:  Side Dishes
  • Tigers and Dens 7 & 8:  Desserts
  • Lions: Drinks

We will start serving food at 5:30, so don’t be late!

At 6:30, we will move over to the amphitheater for the Pack meeting (weather permitting.) During this Pack meeting, the scouts will “rank up” to their next rank. Parents are advised to bring the hat, neckerchief, and neckerchief slide for their son’s next rank. (Webelos parents: your scouts are not affected by this as they are already wearing the colors of their rank.)

The pack has a tradition of handing down hat, neckerchief and slide for the next den’s use; if you are not interested in participating, you will need to provide your own.

As a reminder, the scout store address can be found on the website.

Any parents that would like to volunteer at the grill are asked to arrive no later than 3:30pm to help get things going.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact your den leaders.
