2012-2013 Program

posted Aug 10, 2012, 7:39 PM by Dan Ambrosiani

At the recent leaders meeting, we set an activity filled program for our scouts. More details will be coming out soon, but for now, I want to bring a few events to your attention. The first is in the fall. It's the Cubelos Family Campout. As it's name implies, the entire family is invited to Camp Somers. This is organized by the district, the events are staffed by volunteering packs. We volunteered for the rock throwing activity. As a way of getting ready for this, we ask that scouts collect throwing rocks. Not too big and not too small, something that fits in the palm of a 6 year old. We will also be collecting any donated items for families that would sound great getting banged by projectiles of granite, gneiss, sandatone, and so on.

The second event comes in the spring but is big enough we need to start planning now. A trip to Boston to visit the USS Constitution among others landmarks. To get started, we need to see how many are interested and for what dates scouts can go. The trip would include a motor coach, staying at a KOA outside Boston, visiting "Old Iron Sides", and visiting sites along the way back. See below for more information.
