Pack Meeting

Blue & Gold Banquet 2021

The Blue & Gold Banquet is where we celebrate the birth of Scouting. This year’s celebration was at MacFarlane Park where we had box dinners and a variety of fun games for the Scouts.

We finished up the event with a marshmallow roast and a flag retirement ceremony.

Den Activity

Webelos Woods 2021

Webelos Woods is generally a spring campout organized by the Foothills District that gives the Webelos an opportunity to operate like a Scout Patrol and plan their own campout.

This year they made sandwiches for lunch, grilled burgers for dinner and had bacon for breakfast. The District made this a laid back event where our Scouts got to do their own thing which included an activity put together by Jenson which allowed the Webelos to earn one of their activity pins that they needed for their Webelos rank.

Den Activity

Providence Canyon 2020

Our Webelos Den put together a great trip and the first one since the COVID pandemic began. We visited Providence Canyon State Park just south of Columbus and had a great time hiking and camping at the park.

We got lucky with the weather, we didn’t have any rain and it was a pretty warm night for December. Everyone had a great time hiking up the streambed and into the canyons.

Backyard Scavenger Hunt

As we discussed in our last virtual Pack meeting, here’s a backyard scavenger hunt that everyone can have fun with. We’ll ask everyone at the next meeting how they did. Print this out and see how many things you can find!

A Scout is Trustworthy! This means we’re using the honor system! As items are spotted, they can be crossed off. All items must be found outside, hence the backyard part 🙂 If you find something really unique, take a picture, show everyone at the next meeting!

Pack Activity

Yorktown Adventure

Pack 1714 went on an exciting trip to Patriot’s Point to spend the night on the historic Yorktown aircraft carrier. Our Scouts got to experience a little of what it is like to live on a carrier by spending the night in bunks similar to the ones it’s original sailors would have slept on.

It was hard to tell who enjoyed exploring these old ships more, the Scouts or the parents! The museum is fairly expansive, with a significant amount of the carrier open to exploration. Nearby, the destroyer USS Laffey and the submarine USS Clamagore were also very interesting to visit.

In addition to having a fun time touring these ships, our Scouts also learned a lot about the sacrifices made by the many brave soldiers that fought on these ships and others for our great country.
