DECEMBER PACK MEETING: Voorhees Observatory on Friday, December 11th

Scouts who are interested in earning the Cub Scout NOVA "Out of this World" Award can use this pack meeting to fulfill the visit required in Requirement 4a.

Webelos Craftsman at Barckholtz Home on December 6th at 1 PM

Posted on Nov 28 2015 - 9:10am

If you want to raise a self-reliant kid, get these tools into their hands. #1 Hammer - Popular Mechanics May 21, 2013

We are going to give your scout plenty of opportunity to get confident using a hammer and a few other tools as we work on the Webelos Craftsman badge on Sunday, December 6th at the Barckholtz home starting at 1 PM. Dress in layers to be warm with your Webelos cap.  We will spend most of the time out in the garage.

We will complete the two wood projects for the Craftsman badge together as a group.  We will donate the foot racers and flag stands that we make to Pack 1980 for use at the Yukon Trail and other future outings.

Scouts will complete one or two non-wood projects to take home (as time allows).

Each scout should bring a hammer - one light enough to handle effectively but heavy enough to be effective.  Please register on Webelos Craftsman webpage so we can plan for materials.
