Summer Cub Scout virtual camps

Posted on May 14 2020 - 8:27pm

There are two summer virtual camps being organized by our council for Cub Scouts.

  1. Virtual day camp: https://www.bsacac.org/activities/cub-scout-activities/cub-scout-day-camp/2020-cub-scout-day-camp/.   This is for all ages and costs $50/kid (non-scouts are welcome).  There are theree different on demand programs released about once a month.  The council mails a box of supplies to your scout, and then videos guide or introduce activities, which eventually leads to going outside to do something with hour family.  The goal is to keep the kids busy 4 hours a day.

Spring 2020 is now Family Time

Posted on Apr 11 2020 - 5:17pm

Like everything else, our group activities are on pause.  But doesn't mean you can't work on advancement with your Cub Scout at home. It would be great if everyone finished their current rank advancements by May, so we can celebrate (virtually) earning the Tiger/Wolf/Bear/Webelos badges.  With the "pause", everyone has until July (instead of the last day of school) to finish the current rank.

Spring 2020 Camping Events

This spring we have three camping/sleepover events.  Most have long lead times to singup so we can make reservations.  If you know you cannot make it, you can "signup"/RSVP as not attending--this helps us plan attendance.  Click on Event Registration to the right.
