Posted on Aug 7 2014 - 1:14pm

Pack 1980 cub scouts, den chiefs, leaders, and family members met this past Wednesday evening at the Frenchtown trailhead for a bike ride on the D&R Canal Towpath.  Scout Leader Tim Barckholtz gave a brief introduction to bicycling safety and equipment as well as trail etiquette before scout groups set out in different groups by ability to ride the towpath. Scouts had a beautiful evening for a bike ride and even the smallest scouts and future scouts pedalled at least 3 miles.  Scouts are pictured showing off the Bicycling Belt Loops they earned.  After the ride, scouts enjoyed Italian ices, skipping stones in the Delaware River, finding a toad, and searching for a hidden geocache.

Posted on Jul 26 2014 - 6:21pm

Pack 1980 Cub Scouts and fmaily memebers hiked the Cub Scout Jockey Hollow Historical Trail at Morristown National Historical Park this week.  Scouts started the afternoon with a video of the 1779-1780 winter encampment at Jockey Hollow and then toured the Wick house and garden area.  after the scouts embarked on an ~5 mile hike.  The soldier's and officer's huts were the biggest highlight of the hike.  Scouts also enjoyed picking berries along the way - although we learned at the start of the hike that the Chinese wineberries or wineberry raspberries are actually an invasive species.  Scouts are pictured at the Wick House, inside a Soldier's Hut, and outside an Officer's Hut.
