Pack 1980 Scouting for Food on February 20th at Bishop's Thriftway

Posted on Feb 7 2016 - 7:17am

Our Boys Scouts of America local district, the Hunterdon Arrowhead District, is holding a food drive throughout Hunterdon County on Saturday, February 20th at local grocery stores to benefit the area food banks.  This part of the year is a time when food donations come to a halt, and food banks struggle to meet the needs of local families. Our scouts can "do a good turn" to help meet this need!

Please register to help collect for one hour between 9 AM and 2 PM.   Please note the time window during which your scout will be collecting food in the "Notes" Section of the registration page.

SAVE THE DATE: Bear Scout Carnival will be Friday, May 20th

Posted on Dec 15 2015 - 7:45am

Image result for bear scout grin and bear itWe will have a MANDATORY Bear Scout meeting on Friday, May 20th from 6:00 PM – 9:30 PM as we couple our Bear Scout Carnival requirements (see below) with our Pack’s Raingutter Regatta and our Spring Open House for prospective scout.  This will be a May Pack Meeting full of fun!  There simply is no suitable way to make up this meeting on your own, so mark your calendar now and start to plan.  Each Bear Scout and his parent should plan to offer one carnival-type activity.  We will have a planning meeting in the new year to discuss ideas and logistics.  We are not planning to build booths.  We will hold our Carnival in the Whitehouse Cafetorium.

Bear Scout Grin and Bear It Adventure Requirements:

  1. Play a challenge game or initiative game with the members of your den. Take part in a reflection after the game.
  2. Working with the members of your den, organize a Cub Scout carnival and lead it at a special event.
  3. Help younger Cub Scouts take part in one of the events at the Cub Scout carnival.
  4. After the Cub Scout carnival, discuss with the members of your den and your den leader what went well, what could be done better, and how everyone worked together to make the event a success.
  5. Make and present an award to one of the adults who helped you organize the activities at the Cub Scout carnival.
