The Fall Family Campout is coming up soon at the end of September. We’ll be camping at the Forest Hills Lodge/Pool (upper facility) on http://foresthillspack90.bringit.bz/public/4a384f. All family members are welcomed and encouraged to attend! It’s ok too if you don’t want to spend the night so hope you’ll come anyway for dinner and fun. In order for us to plan accordingly for food, we need to know if you’re coming so please sign-up indicating how many from your family will be attending and if you are planning on spending the night (outside in a tent!).
In addition to our regular bi-monthly Den meetings and monthly Pack meetings, we are offering several opportunities to go to events as a group if we can get enough participants. They are:
· Pittsburgh Zoo overnighter at the PPG Aquarium on > $38.00 per person (preference given to Tigers, Wolves & Bears) http://foresthillspack90.bringit.bz/public/c51945
· Ringling Bros. Circus at CONSOL on Friday, November 6 > $12.50 per ticket (Scout night) http://foresthillspack90.bringit.bz/public/b59e09
In order to get these rates, we MUST have a minimum of 15 tickets for the CONSOL events. The zoo overnighter is limited to 20 scouts, whom must all be accompanied by a parent.
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.
