Scouts are Ready to Ride after Cub Scout Bike Rodeo!

Posted on May 3 2017 - 9:50am

Twenty-eight cub Scouts from Pack 1980 and Pack 182, along with several family members participated in the Cub Scout Bike Rodeo on the last weekend in April.  Scouts began the bike rodeo by learning how to check their bike helmet for a proper fit and how to check that their bike is in good working condition and fit to them.  Scouts then tested their skills at several stations.  Scouts practiced avoiding obstacles, watching for cars, controlling their bicycle through turns and narrow lanes, and using hand signals.


Pack 1980 Cub Scouts Help with RHA Stream Clean-Up 2017

Posted on Apr 22 2017 - 7:58pm

A small team of Pack 1980 Cub Scouts, den leaders, and family members cleaned up bottles, cans, food packaging, and all kinds of trash throughout YMCA Camp Carr property and along the banks of the South Branch of the Raritan River.  The scouts also tracked the number of plastic bags and the number of plastic bottles they picked up.  Unusual items were also found included a backpack, an old headband, a glove, and a plastic clothes hanger while others who helped found a sleeping bag. This was the 27th annual Raritan Headwaters Association Stream Cleanup along 47 miles of local streams and rivers across Hunterdon, Somerset, and Morris Counties.

Scouts and adults need to have a BSA Health & Medical form with a physician’s signature.
