Cub Scouts! Do Your Best! Do Your Best!

Summer Day Camp 2016!

The date for this year’s Huron Trails Day Camp have been announced: August 11th-13th. The camp will be held at the same place as last year, the Washtenaw County Farm Council Grounds (near Saline). Registration for the camp opens on February 12th and there are Early Bird specials so if you are interested please let pack leadership know so they can get your Scouts registered!

Unlike Resident/Webelos Camp this is not an overnight event. The boys can be dropped off in the morning and picked up at the end of the day. We will, however, have to provide enough adult leaders for all our attendees (at least two, with an additional leader for each group of boys over a certain number). The medical form parts A and B are still required (but they’re good for a year, so those used for overnights before this event will still be good for this event!). Activities include many of those they can do at Resident/Webelos camp (archery, BB guns, etc.) and have the same theme as those camps this year (Cub Scout Camp: CSI).

The cost is $45 per Scout and $10 per Adult Walker (parents) until April 1st, when the price per scout goes up to $50 until July 16th when the price goes up to $60 per Scout and there’s no guarantee they will get a shirt if they register after May 31st (price of the shirt included in registration!), so please think about it now. Don’t forget, 10% of what your Cub Scout sold in popcorn can go towards their Scout Camp fee (not the Adult Walker fees). A future fundraiser for camp may be held, and Camperships are available from the district.

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).
