Tonight the boys will be completing the last requirement of the Bear Necessities Adventure by helping to setup a tent.  From there we will move onto using a magnifying glass to examine plants more closely and then learning about composting.  We should have a very hands on and engaging evening!  October is a very busy month for scouting so please check out the important dates below as well as for show and sell opportunities.


Show and sell opportunities are available on the website and occur nearly every weekend.  This is a great opportunity to sell a lot of popcorn in a short amount of time.  This means scout credit!

This past week we held introductions to our fellow den mates and welcomed all of our returning Scouts both for the Pack and Den. We have one new Scout who we worked with on The Bobcat Requirements. There was also a Parents Meeting with Mr Dunn and Mr Dietrich in the Parish Hall while we had a small Den Meeting. After the Den meeting and Parents Meeting we went upstairs and listened to the Popcorn Presentation. I am still working on finalizing our Den Calendar and hope to to have this completed by the 29 of September.  We will be making fish costumes for the October 19 Halloween Parade. More information will be addressed and discussed this week.

We will be working on Bear Claws week in our Den Meeting as well as reviewing Bobcat with our new Scouts. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Hope to see everyone on the 29th. 

Please check the packs website frequently as it is updated often.

Tonight was our first den meeting of the year and we accomplished a lot.  We were able to put together a Code of Conduct for our den, the boys filled out a family line to the best of their abilities, and they also filled out personal info sheets which we shared to learn more about each other.  We then brought our meeting outside for some physical fitness challenges.  All and all it was a great night!

Please complete Achievement 3b from the Bear Handbook by finding out about two great famous Americans and be able to tell what they did or are doing to improve our way of life.  We will discuss this at next weeks meeting.  Also Akelas, please review Achievements 10 and 12 from the handbooks as well.  These two are family based achievements that you may be able to sign off on without even realizing!

Thank you to all who attended tonight and we welcome new comers.  See you all next week!

Tonight we will be working on Achievement 4 which the Scouts can log as Arrow Points if they have completed their 3 Achievements for “My Country”.   There are a few Scouts that need a third selection completed to earn their badge, so for them this will fulfill that requirement here.   The topic is Folklores, so we are going to learn about what a folklore is, read about a few, share any that we already may have heard of, play a match game and maybe a game of charades.  

Home Assignment- Achievement 6- do any 3...I suggest perhaps 6c,d and e or 6 d,e, and f.   These again will be Arrow Points if your Bear has completed the 3 for Country.  Have your Bear be prepared for a brief review next meeting perhaps as to what kinds of energy sources you use at home, our biggest energy drains and ways to conserve energy.  Time permitting we will introduce this topic this evening.
