STEM Camp - April Vacation week

posted Mar 17, 2017, 3:01 AM by Webmaster Troop 13

Spring is almost here and the April vacation will be here before you realize it.  The question that always comes up is, “what to do with the kids?”  You could always keep them home and let them watch television all day, but we have a better idea!  Send them to New England Base Camp for STEM Camp!

STEM Camp 2017 is bigger than ever!  This year, we will be hosting the animators at FableVision who will be teaching for the Animation Merit Badge! NVBots will be at camp teaching 3D printing.  We cannot forget about the paleontologists, meteorologists, astronauts, robots and drones coming as well.   Everyone will be taking a field trip this year.  Participants will be going to MIT, Lincoln Labs, iRobot, FableVision, Harvard, Wentworth Institute of Technology and many more. 

We have added more sessions for the Boy Scout Merit Badge program.  Scouts can choose between Animation Merit Badge, Energy and Electricity Merit Badges, Inventing and Engineering Merit Badges, Nuclear Science and Drafting Merit Badges, Robotics Merit Badge, & Space Exploration and Weather Merit Badges.  Cub Scouts will work on a multitude of Activity Badges.  Girl Scouts will be able to work on their awards and everyone works towards their NOVA award. 

Jobs within the STEM industry are growing at nearly twice the national average, meaning there will be well over 1 million unfilled tech jobs by 2020! Careers in STEM foster valuable 21st-century life skills like problem-solving, creativity, and collaboration, while providing opportunities to create positive change and innovate a better world.  Not to mention that it is fun.  Bring your child to STEM Camp at New England Base Camp for a chance to learn while having the time of their lives.

After you have registered for STEM Camp, make sure to select the class your Stem Camper wishes to participate in during their week of camp. Before you continue make sure you review the program.

Den Chief Training

posted Dec 8, 2016, 3:01 PM by Webmaster Troop 13   [ updated Dec 8, 2016, 3:04 PM ]

Jan 7th 9:00 am - 12:30 pm – Den Chief Training - Nobscot Scout Reservation

1 Nobscot Road  Sudbury, MA

·         The Den Chief is a key means of building relationships between the Pack and Troop. The Den Chief regularly reminds the boys about Boy Scouts in a positive way as he leads activities and shares his enthusiasm for Scouting with the Cub Scouts. His presence adds another important asset. He can tell them about Boy Scouting, with its outdoor activities, trips, summer camp, and opportunities for advancement. When it’s time for them to move up to a Webelos Scout den or a Boy Scout troop, his example and encouragement can help them decide to make that transition.
