Pack Family Campout (New Lower Price!)

Posted on Mar 29 2016 - 3:38pm

Registration closes Wednesday April 6th. We have found a few ways to cut costs for this camp out - therefore (woo-hoo) the price went down!

Pack Family Campout is at the Hollis Renewal Center on Saturday April 9, 2016 starting at 12:00 noon and continuing overnight until 12:00 noon on Sunday April 10. Cost is $9.00 per person, 3yrs & younger are free. This includes camping fee and food for Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast. We are grilling hot dogs on Saturday night. You are welcome to bring your own meat for grilling. We will be sleeping outside in tents but there are conditioned restrooms and shower facilities available. If you would like to attend but don't have a tent, please contact Helen Meiss and she can arrange to have one for you. We have a few pack tents and many people in the pack have multiple tents they are willing to loan out. Our campsite is next to the covered picnic shelter and the large fire pit. Firewood is provided by Hollis and is included in the camping fee. Please pay the camping fee to Helen Meiss before the camp out or we will collect the fee at the camp out. I need leaders to be thinking about skits, songs, and outdoor demonstrations they can perform during the camp out and at the campfire. If you have any questions, please contact Helen Meiss at 913.306.4414 OR helen.meiss@gmail.com.

Day Camp

Posted on Mar 22 2016 - 1:36am

The theme for the 2016 Cub Scout Day Camp program is "Treasure Island."

Council and District staffs are currently planning the programs for the thousands of Cub Scouts who will attend camp in the Heart of America Council. These Tigers and Wolf Scouts shoot BB guns and bows and arrows; work on badges and Cub Scout belt loops; cook out; sing songs; learn about nature; make crafts; and play games. If you have not made plans to attend, you should! Going to camp is a wonderful part of the Cub Scouting experience, and it helps your pack earn Scouting's Journey to Excellence and Summertime Pack Awards. The Pack must provide leadership and adult supervision for their Cub Scouts who attend Day Camp, plus provide for transportation to and from the camps. It is recommended that packs have at least one registered adult leader attend camp for every five to six Cub Scouts. The minimum number allowed at any time is two, of which one of them must have completed Youth Protection Training. Everyone must complete parts A and B of the Annual Health and Medical Record.

I get a lot of questions regarding these 2 awards. I find these two websites very helpful in explaining the difference.
