Welcome to Fall
From October 16-18 the Webelos of Pack 613 and the Scouts from Troop 613 participated in the annual National Pike District Webelos-O-Ree. The Webelos had a busy weekend camping in really cold weather at Broadcreek, following the activity trail all day Saturday, followed by a District campfire and then ice-cream social to get to know the various Troops in the District.
The Troop was just as busy hosting two stations on the activity trails. At the always popular utensiless cooking station on the Webelos I trail the Scouts demonstrated how to cook scrambled eggs with no clean up and how tasty pudding can be while hiking and camping in the woods. Just a short distance away the Troop taught the practical application of Outdoor Ethics rules, see those rules below. Overall a really great weekend experience for everyone.
Coming up are the District Orienteering Day again at Broadcreek on November 7 and camping and biking on the C&O Canal November 13-15.
It's busy fall season!
Pack Welcomes Cubs with a Campfire
The first thing most boys think of when they think of scouting is a campfire. So, what a great way to start off the scouting year for Cubs new and old but with a campfire. Mr. Lee taught the boys the proper way to start and maintain a fire and how to stay safe doing it. Once the fire had burned down to coals we all roasted marshmellows and made S'mores. A delicious treat for all.
The Cub Scouts will have their first overnight camping experience Oct. 2-4 when they are at camp Oest for a family camping trip. The Webelos Dens (4th and 5th graders) will begin the transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts while participating in Webelos-o-ree Oct. 16-18.
