Our Wolves are almost Bears!!

WooHoo !!  We are almost at the end! Our Wolves are SO close to advancement and we cannot wait to greet them again in person as Bears and give them their belt loops and new Badge. We are zooming meetings and assigning “homework” to get them through. This week, wolves must camp out overnight in the yard or in the house, packing as for a regular camping trip.  Make your lists! Don’t forget anything! If you forget it on a trip, you can’t go run and get it so you can’t on this trip either!!  Make sure you entertain your family with a skit or song! 

we also have participated in a flag folding ceremony via video instruction and discussion, snd watched a video and learned about campfire safety and held a discussion about a situation/change in our community.  We chose the virus and schooling from home and the rules we must follow.  There is no doubt the Wolves get it and are educated on the situation and are doing what they are supposed to.  It got them thinking about ways to get through this and that’s a win!

Over the next 2 weeks we will be wrapping up our program with more instruction to conclude their adventures for the year.  We will keep in touch and plan for summer as best we can and we CANNOT WAIT to see all of  your smiling faces again!

 

Monday Night Adventure

Baloo HikingAs our mighty cubs are finishing up their schooling for the day and fueling for our meeting tonight, I want to remind den parents about tonight’s meeting. Weather permitting, the Tigers, Wolves and Bears are going on a one-mile hike around the neighborhood tonight and looking to find evidence of wildlife in nature.

All scouts should have sturdy footwear, a water bottle, flashlight, and appropriate outerwear for the weather. The predicted temperature for 7:00pm is 64 degrees F. Scouts are encouraged to bring a backpack with their six essentials to prepare for longer hikes and adventures if they desire.

Tiger Cubs…

Tiger Cub Parents last night we finished up the elective Earning Your Stripes. Next week we will be working on the Tiger Tales elective, playing a game and sharing a snack.

TIGERS…

Good morning Tiger parents. Last night we worked on and completed the elective “Sky is the Limit”, shared a snack and played hot potato.

Next week we are going to be working on the elective “Earning Your Stripes”. Please have kids do something helpful for the week, a small chore for example. We will talk about what they did during the meeting. I also ask that kids bring in 3-5 ORANGE things they like for show and tell. If it is something that cannot be brought in, a picture is great as well. We’ll discuss these during the meeting as well. We may have a small snack as well. Have a great week, and see you all next week!! Any questions, comments, etc. don’t hesitate to send me an email.

Tigers (1/27/20)

Hello all!! This week in the Tiger den we covered TIGER BITES requirement and SAFE & SMART elective. We all brought yummy and healthy snacks to share, we talked about healthy food choices and not so healthy choices. For our elective we discussed what to do in an emergency; who to call, how to react and respond.

Tiger den: 1/20/20

Tiger Parents, Tonight we reviewed the Bobcat requirements. Please also review them with your Cubs at home, they are as follows:

1. Scout Oath

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my county.  and to obey the scout law;  to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong,  mentally awake and morally straight.

2. Scout Law

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.

3. The Cub Scout Sign.

The Cub Scout Sign is 2 fingers, held high. It means you are ready to listen. It’s made with the right arm held high and straight up above the shoulder, with the index and middle fingers forming a V.

4. The Cub Scout Handshake.

The handshake is done by putting the index and middle fingers of the right hand against the other person’s wrist when shaking hands.

5. Cub Scout Motto.

Do your best.

6. Cub Scout Salute.

The salute is made by joining the index and middle fingers of the right hand (holding the other fingers with the thumb) and toughing the extended fingers to either the forehead or hat visor.

We will review these for the next few weeks at beginning of our meetings.        If you have any questions/comments/concerns please don’t hesitate to email me at: stracey@scouting1776.org

Have a fantastic week! See you all next Monday!

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

Dear Parents,
Can you believe that the end of our scouting year is upon us? Where did the time magically go? Just a moment ago it was September and we were just starting the year and then POOF!!! It is over. 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
