Scouting News

August 2022

Summer provides a variety of fun and exciting activities for Cubs to enjoy.  In June, Cubs and their families traveled to the National Museum of the US Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. It is the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world.  Galleries include the early years, World War II, the Korean War, the Southeast Asian War, the Cold War, Space and Presidential, among others.

 

In July, Cubs had the opportunity to attend Cub Scout Camp, a week where Cubs spent each day doing a variety of activities, from shooting BB guns and bows/arrows, making crafts, taking nature hikes, and climbing the tower, along with other activities.  Cub Scout Camp was held at Camp Lakota.

 

Putt-Putt is on the agenda this month.  Each Cub will be inviting a non-Scout friend to join them for this activity.  Snacks and drinks will be available for all Cubs, and their friends and families as well.

 

The Troop attended a week of summer camp at Lakota in July, as has been done for many years.  Scouts had an opportunity to complete a number of merit badges but also had time for a number of fun activities, including using the water slides, swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and sail boating in Lake Glengary, sharpening their skills in shooting sports with rifles, shot guns and bow/arrows, making crafts, and practicing various scout skills, to name a few.  Leadership development was also an important aspect of summer camp.

 

In addition, two Troop members and two adult leaders traveled to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, one of Boy Scouts’ high adventure bases.  This trek involved backpacking 12 days in the backcountry of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

 

July 4th weekend provided an opportunity for members of both the Pack and Troop to serve as flag bearers for the St. John Church services.

 

Youth and adults are always welcome to attend pack and troop events to learn more about the program.  Questions at any time can be addressed to Mike Saxton, Chartered Organization Representative, at 419-439-2079.
