Cyber Chip Requirement
Our youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education, research, socializing and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online, the Boy Scouts of America introduces the Cyber Chip. All Scouts in Pack 90 must earn the Cyber Chip as part of his progress towards earning his respective rank award. The program is designed with special modules for boys in grades 1-3 and 4-5. When completed, each Cub Scout will be given a Cyber Chip pocket card.

It’s hard to imagine Summer Camp as we prepare to leave for Winter Camp, but the time to register Scouts for camp is almost upon us. Since the District made a few date changes to camp this year, we are offering two Webelos camps and one Cub camp. Here are the dates:
Note that there are TWO different Webelos camps to pick from: a 4-day (lead by me) versus a 5-day (lead by Mrs. Monique Powell) so please be aware. These dates are for either Webelos I or Webelos II rank.
Cost: 4 day (3 nights) Webelos and Cubs:
$181 per Scout and $96 per adult5 day (4 nights) Webelos:
$236 per Scout and $131 per adult
Remember, your Scout will move to his next rank on June 1, so if you are a Tiger now, you’ll be a Wolf on June 1. If you’re a Bear, you’ll be a Webelos I on June 1. Watch for additional info on summer camp in a few weeks.
Please use the sign-up links above to let the leaders know who is interested in going. You are NOT committed if you sign-up on Bring-It; this is just for us to gauge interest. However, look for a registration form soon for you to officially reserve your spot with a modest down payment.
Laurel Highlands Council offer “camperships” to families in need of financial support to attend camp. If you’d like more information on this program, please visit this site:http://lhc-bsa.doubleknot.com/document/2016-campership-form/157875
Change to Scouting
Recently, The Boy Scouts of America has made changes to the Cub Scouting Program. The curriculum has been changed for the first time in close to 40 years. Books are now available for the new programs for purchase at the Scout Store at Flag Plaza.
Other current events are recent changes in Pennsylvania law that has recently gone into effect regarding required clearances when in the presence of minors. Our Cubmaster, Ed Galloway will be sending out communications regarding how this effects our Pack. Please stay tuned for more information.
