What a fun Open House!

A warm thanks to everyone who came out tonight to the Cub Scout Pack 1776 Open House. We saw many new faces, as well as our dear familiar ones. The children thoroughly enjoyed “SCIENCE!” With Dan, electrical circuitry with Mike, Catapults of Fun and corn hole with Nora and Digging for Dinosaurs with Kristine. We all had an evening of learning through fun, comradery, and laughs. A special thank you to the boy scouts and venturing crew (both of 1776) who assisted us tonight, and of course to Regina, our Cub Master, who met with all of the parents.  We really have a great group here, and we very much look forward to expanding our cub community! See     you all next week!

**Remember, it’s never too late to meet with us. If you were unavailable for our Open House, you are welcome to swing by any Monday meeting between 7:00PM and 8:00PM!

Welcome ALL to our annual Open House

We are all looking forward to meeting new faces tonight. There is a lot of information and fun planned for this evening!

Oh the fun we had at Valley Forge

We had a wonderful (approx) 5 mile hike at Valley Forge last month. The weather was perfect and the company even better.  It was a nice turnout for scout attendance and even though the paths we took did not lead us to he dinosaur fossils, there’s always next time!  Way to go Cubs Dennis, Evan and Megan! You are 1/3 of the way toward your summer participation badge! Can’t wait to see who joins us in August!!  Have a happy and safe summer ☀️ check out some pictures! https://scouting1776.sharepoint.com/:i:/r/teams/PackLeaders/Shared%20Documents/Photos/20190622%20-%20Valley%20Forge%20Hike/IMG_4623.JPG?csf=1&e=PeEY2I

We are having our end of year Blue and Gold Banquet on June 2, 2018. The doors open at 12:15 and the banquet starts at 1:00. Tickets are available. Each scout gets a ticket for themself and 2 tickets for parents. Any extra tickets are $5.00 each. Payment at the door is acceptable. Head counts are needed by May 30th. We look forward to ending the year with the same spirit that we have had all year!

Thank you!
Sincerely,
Regina Giuffre

Tigers Update- April 9th

Tiger Elective Achievement: Safe and Smart

Safe and Smart

 

 

This week the Tigers completed requirements 3 and 4 of the Safe and Smart Adventure which completes this elective  for the Tigers. We reviewed what we have learned in prior weeks and they showed that they can “Stop, Drop, and Roll.” and demonstrated how to safely roll someone else in a blanket to put out a fire. The Tigers then joined the Lions and Wolfs for some physical fitness fun!

 

 

 

 

 

As a reminder: Each rank requires that scouts earn the Cyber Chip award in order to earn their rank. If you have not done so already, please complete the following:

1. Read, commit to, and sign the Level 1 Internet Safety Pledge. (BSA Cyber Chip blue card).
2. Watch the video “Bad Netiquette Stinks.” at http://www.netsmartzkids.org/LearnWithClicky/BadNetiquetteStinks
3. Play the Router’s Birthday Surprise Interactive Adventure, and print the completion certificate to give your den leader.
4. Show and tell your family, den leader, den, or pack what you have learned.

Tiger Den Update.

Tiger Adventure: Tigers In the Wild

This week the Tigers worked with both the Lion and Wolf dens. The Tigers completed Requirement 1 and Requirement 3(b) of Tigers in the Wild Adventure. They discussed the Cub Scout Six Essentials needed for a hike including how to prepare for the rain.

The Tigers also learned the difference about healthy food choices and not so healthy food choices. They made “mud” using pudding and whip cream and created their own creations out of fresh fruit and tooth picks.

 

As a reminder: This Saturday, March 17, 2018 is The Pinewood Derby Car Workshop from 10am-2pm.

 

Tiger Den Update 2/26/18

This week all Den’s worked together and planted a variety of plant seeds. The Tigers were asked to draw and share some of the plants, trees, and/or shrubs that they would see on a hike or during a typical walk around neighborhood. They were then given the opportunity to examine plant leaves, roots, and soil with a magnifying glass. While the Tigers planted their tomato and wild flower seeds, they learned about the needs and growth of the plants. This completed requirement #4 of the My Tiger Jungle Adventure.

As a reminder, please have your scouts bring their handbooks to our weekly meetings. The handbook will allow the scouts see what requirements they have already completed and it will also give them the opportunity to be able to choose what they would like to work on in future meetings.

 

Tiger Update 2/12 & 2/19

Tiger Adventure: Backyard Jungle

On February 12th and February 19th, the Tiger Den worked on a requirement for the My Tiger Jungle Adventure. The Tigers used popsicle sticks to create and build a birdhouse. They brought their houses home with them on Monday night and can hang them as the weather gets nicer.

This coming Monday the Tigers will work on another requirement for the My Tiger Jungle Adventure by planting and learning about the needs and growth of the plant; so plan on them getting a bit dirty.  In the coming weeks, the den will finish this adventure by taking a hike and learning about the sights and sounds of nature around us.

Going forward, please have your Scout bring his/her book to our weekly meetings.

Tiger Update 10/09/2017

Tiger Adventure: Games Tigers PlayThis week the Tigers worked on the Games Tigers Play adventure (page 42 in the handbook) which is designed to will help boys develop appropriate emotional responses, engage in shared decision making in group settings, and encourage an active and healthy lifestyle.

They played Synapse, Twister, and the boys created and played their own game called “Attack the Monster”. These games allowed the boys to build their own teams and showed the importance of team work.

The Tigers completed requirements 1 and 3 this week. Next week they will pick a healthy snack and explain what makes it healthy (requirement 2) which, along with their home assignment (see below), will complete the Games Tigers Play Adventure.

At Home (homework)
Each Tiger will need to create a game of his own and play it with his family before the next meeting (requirement 4). He will then discuss and play the game with our den next week.

Important News: Please be aware that the Boy Scouts of America has updated the advancement requirements for Cub Scouts but have not printed new handbooks with the updated requirements. As a result you may notice that some of the requirement numbers we mention are different than what is in the handbook. Below is a link to an addendum that contains the updated requirements to supplement your scout’s handbook We have also updated the requirements on our website

 

Tiger Den Update 10/02/2017

Tiger Adventure: Tiger BitesOn Monday the Tigers worked on the Tiger Bites adventure (page 78 in the handbook) which is designed to introduce or reinforce healthy eating habits through food choices, and hygiene; introduce or reinforce good manners in relation to food and entertaining; and provide an opportunity for the Scout to provide a useful service to his family.

They played a game called “Yay or Nay” to help identify good food choices and after discussing the importance of hand washing both before and after meals they talked about the differences between fruits and vegetables and then used them to create a good snack choice and learning about what foods you can eat with your fingers.

The Tigers worked on requirements 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6; completing the Tiger Bites adventure.

At Home (homework)
The scouts, with the assistance of an adult, should pick a job to help the family at mealtime and do it for at least four meals (requirement 4). They should also practice their manners while eating and continue to discuss what makes a good and bad food choice with their families.
