Cub Scouts! Do Your Best! Do Your Best!

Resident/Webelos Camp 2016 Info

Though it’s several months off now is the time to start planning for Cub Scout Resident Camp and Webelos Resident Camp 2016. This year’s theme is CSI: Cub Scout Investigator!

Cub Scout Resident Camp offers three days/two nights of Cub Scout camping fun and adventure primarily tailored for boys going into grades 2 and 3 (though any Cub Scouts can attend). Fees for 2016 are $140 per youth (not covered by the pack, though boys are given opportunities to cover these fees via fundraising… a Scout is thrifty!) and $70 for adults if paid by 5/15/2016. This is an all-inclusive camp… tents/cots and food are provided, boys/adults basically just need to bring sleeping bags, clothes (including swimsuits), toiletries, flashlights, bug spray (lots of bug spray!) and a sense of adventure.

Available dates are:

  • Friday 7/1 – Sunday 7/3
  • Thursday 7/7 – Saturday 7/9
  • Sunday 7/10 – Tuesday 7/12
  • Thursday 7/14 – Saturday 7/16
  • Sunday 7/17 – Tuesday 7/19
  • Thursday 7/21 – Saturday 7/23

Webelos Resident Camp is similar to Cub Scout Resident Camp but one day/night longer and is geared towards boys going into grades 4 and 5. The fees for this camp for 2016 are $170 for boys (again, not covered by the pack though boys can earn their way there) and $90 for adults.

Available dates are:

  • Sunday 7/24 – Wednesday 7/27
  • Wednesday 7/27 – Saturday 7/30
  • Sunday 7/31-Wednesday 8/3

Note: DO NOT REGISTER ON YOUR OWN AT THOSE LINKS! The pack will register boys/adults going to camp to ensure it is done correctly. There are several steps that have to be taken first as well (health forms for all going to camp, DHHS background check forms for adults going to camp, YPT for adults going to camp and BSA registration for adults going to camp who aren’t already registered.)  If anyone is interested in helping to coordinate this important event please attend a committee meeting or let pack leadership know at your earliest convenience.

Take Youth Protection Training Today!

Youth protection can be best achieved through the shared involvement of everyone in Scouting. This includes Scouting professionals who are expected to increase the awareness of Youth Protection policies, make training available to everyone, encourage all Scouting units to include personal safety awareness education in their programs, and ensure youth protection is considered in all council-sponsored activities; volunteers and leaders who must create a culture of awareness and safety within their units and councils, and ensure their units follow the BSA’s Youth Protection policies; parents who should monitor and participate in their children’s activities and teach them personal safety skills; and anyone who becomes aware of possible abuse within Scouting and must report any suspicion to the proper authorities for review and investigation.

Click here to access the free online training modules (including Youth Protection Training). If you take the YPT module (approx. 30 minutes) please save a PDF of your certificate. Better yet, forward it to pack leadership so we have proof of that training. All leaders must have valid certificates on file, and it doesn’t hurt to have every adult in the pack have this on file. The safety of the boys is priority one, help us guarantee it.

Pinewood Derby photos available!

This year’s Pinewood Derby was a blast. Cars in every shape, color and design came out to race at the FUMC at Green Road in Ann Arbor. Every car checked in at under 5 ounces, and competitors raced for top positions in Tigers, Wolf, Bear and Webelos competitions, followed by an All-Pack event. Check out the photos at the Pinewood Derby page or check out the photo gallery with photos of the scouts with their cars (password-protected).


Resident Camp 2015!

The attendees at this year’s Cub Scout Resident Camp held at Camp Munhacke on July 24-27th had a terrific time! The only downside were the torrent of mosquitoes who were uninvited yet persistent guests. This year marked the 25th year of Cub Scout Camping at Munhacke, there will be many more years of Cub Scout camping ahead and all pack members are highly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity next summer. Activities included swimming, kayaking, fishing, BB guns, archery, soccer and to go along with this year’s theme, Yellowstone, an Explorer outpost with a gold mine and panning for gold!
