Cub Summer Camp is the Most Fun Event Ever

Posted on Mar 20 2019 - 8:05pm

Seriously: Cub Summer Camp is the Most Fun Event Ever! Information (and registration ... though we might want to see when families in the Pack want to attend -- so we've set up "soft signups" here, as linked below, or to do it all in one place, just add a comment below and write when you might be able to go) and the Leaders Guide for the longer resident camp options is now online at https://www.campbertadams.org/files/24223/Cub-Overnight-Camp-Leader-Guide, and you'll find Family Overnight Camping Fun in all sizes, from:

  • One Night Summer Family Camps running from Saturday at 1 PM to Sunday at 10 AM on 
  • Two Night Weekends ... there are Three Sessions of Overnight Weekend Camp, from Friday at 2 PM - Sunday at 8 PM:
  • Three Sessions of  Specialty Camps for designed for Bear, Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts (so, current 2nd through 4th Grade), running Monday at 10 AM - Wednesday at 8 PM as follows:
  • Can you go to more than one camp?  Yes.  Many will.  

These all-inclusive programs include camping in canvas wall tents, healthy meals in the air-conditioned dining hall, and access to modern shower and restroom facilities.  Go as a Pack, a Den, or just you and your Scout -- and you can go more than once ... more at www.CampBertAdams.org/CubOvernight.  

Spring is Sprung -- Fling is a Thing: Spring Fling Campout is ON for April 5 - 7

Posted on Mar 13 2019 - 10:53am

Do these things:  sign up at https://atlanta631.mypack.us/node/2918 to attend Spring Fling Campout, and thank Den Leader Vincent Young for agreeing to coordinate.  Better yet: sign up, and tell Vincent Young that you'll help.  More at https://atlanta631.mypack.us/node/2918.

Things the Pack Might Do - All the Dens, K thru 5 ... and Who Might Plan and Lead

Posted on Mar 6 2019 - 11:54am

Some events are on the calendar (but will need leaders and helpers ... and thanks to those on this list, it is much appreciated!  Click here to add your name).  Pack Leaders are trying to determine whether/where to camp April 5-7 (location to be determined, but Bert Adams has a Spring Fling Cub Camping weekend then).  What do you want to do?  Does anyone want a big trip (maybe in 2020) like Space Camp in Huntsville, or overnights at the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga or McWane Science Center in Birmingham?    Feel free to comment below.  

So here’s the deal … we have Den Leaders and each den is doing program, Jerry Watkins has stepped up as Chair and Carl Aaron as Cubmaster, but there are other roles to support activities that involve all of the dens that are yet unfilled.  These are not as hard as Den Leader, and they range from Committee Chair, to Cubmaster, to individual event coordinators and helpers for events like Pinewood Derby, to Spring Camping, to Blue & Gold Awards Banquet, to a big Winter Trip, and some other support roles. 

  • More on Pack Leader Roles is here.
  • FYI, when the Pack re-started in 2003-04, we had no idea how to do things.  Now we have lots of ideas, and a Pack Trainer so willing to help advise people who step up.

So, we ask each parent to go to the Signup Genius survey and enter how you can help.  See https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084aa9a82f4-cubscout.  

  • The Den Leaders do a lot.  But they cannot do it all.

And these are not permanent jobs.  We're asking for just a commitment to May, because there are a lot of fun activities that can be done between now and May.  And separately we’re asking “for next year”, because you may want to commit for then, and see how it goes this year as just a helper.

Pinewood Derby Help Still Needed!

Posted on Feb 6 2019 - 6:27pm

Gentlemen (and Ladies ... Moms can help too!):

We all want to make this a successful fun filled event but I need volunteers for the following

On Friday 2/8: 4-5 people to meet me at the Middle School Cafeteria to help with the assembly of the track. The more the merrier as we have the test track to setup as well.

On Saturday 2/9:  2-3 people to verify the track is ready for racing and helping enter the scouts information in the software.

Please let me your participation no later than 5:00p on  tomorrow 2/7 so I can plan accordingly.

Thanks,
