Visiting our National Parks this Summer? Check out the NPS Scout Ranger Award

Whether you are going away on vacation this summer or staying in the great state of New Jersey, let this summer be a time you explore our country's National Parks!  

As a Boy Scout or Cub Scout, you can learn more about the mission of the national parks by becoming a Scout Ranger.  Whether you are visiting a national park like Yosemite, a national recreation area like the Delaware Water Gap, or an historical site like Thomas Edison National Historical Park, you can participate in educational programs or volunteer service projects to earn hours toward the National Park Service Scout Ranger Award.  Scouts who participate in 5 hours can earn a certificate.  Scouts who participate for 10 hours can earn a patch.  Please help protect the nation's natural, cultural, and historic resources while exploring our national parks!  If your scout is working toward a Scout Ranger award, please contact Cindy Barckholtz.

National Summertime Pack Award

Posted on Jun 25 2015 - 1:56pm

Our Family Campout was a fun ending to our 2014-2015 scout year.  Even though our monthly den and pack meetings may be done for the summer, that doesn't mean that scouting stops!  Our Pack has several fun activities planned this summer including a Rocket Launch (July 23), Fishing & Dutch Oven Dessert Cooking (August 5),America's Grow-a-Row Scout Day service project (August 12th) and Columbia Trail Bike Hike (September 2).  

Scouts that attend any three pack activities during the summer months (June, July, August) will earn the National Summertime Pack Award pin which is worn on their uniform's right pocket flap.  The pins earned for this summer will match the rank your scout just completed.  The Family Campout counts as our first summer event and we had 43 scouts attend!  The Solberg Summer Solstice celebration also counted and we had at least 8 scouts attend!

Over 40 scouts helped Pack 1980 just celebrated the end of our 2014-2015 scouting year with a Family Campout this past weekend at Camp Carr. All enjoyed a picnic dinner followed by a special treat as Cubmaster Jay Wieder cooked fried Oreos. The Cub Scouts did a great job with skits at the campfire program and Bear Leader Dan McDonald tied the program together by leading in camp songs. Twenty-six scout families camped overnight. Morning activities included a Scouts' Own Service and a Flag Retirement Ceremony led by Bear Leader Jared Beatrice. A shout out to our unit commissioner, Daniel Avery, who led a craft for the scouts and also brought his monkey bridge - the highlight of the campout for many of our scouts!  Follow the "read more" link to see additional pictures.
