Calling all Akela for Outdoor Training

Anyone out there interested in taking outdoor training? We need at least one person (preferably more) to be BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) certified for pack camping trips. Training is being offered on Saturday, March 24th at Camp Tadma in Bozrah.  Register here by March 23. Cost is $15/person.

BALOO TrainingBALOO is a 6 hour session that introduces parents and leaders to the skills needed to plan and conduct pack outdoor activities, particularly pack camping. The morning BALOO sessions include the why and how of Cub Scout camping—planning, equipment, meal preparation, and campfire programs. In the afternoon, Cub Scouters rotate among four round-robin sessions—fire safety, stoves, and lanterns; first aid and sanitation; nature hikes and games; and cooking. Scattered throughout the day are plenty of the four S’s: songs, stunts, stories, and showmanship.

Contact us if you are interested.

2012 Pinewood Derby

Last weekend, Pack 24 hosted the annual Pinewood Derby at Lillie B. Haynes Elementary School. Everyone had a great time and the boys did a great job with their cars. There were so many creative designs. Congratulations to all of our winners and good luck to the top racers at Districts! A big thanks to all of the volunteers who made the event such a huge success including; the PWD Committee, parents who helped with the cars, photographers, and those who ran the concession stand. See you next year!’
