Sleepy Hollow Campout weekend
July 10,11,12 ( Friday 6pm till about 11 am Sunday morning.) Camping at Sleepy Hollow State Park youth area.. leaders/parents are working on a menu and an itinerary of activities. should end up with lots of fun stuff. AS we live in Michigan, our camping opportunities for our youngest are limited to summer
and perhaps once in late September. This should come in under $20 per person. the whole family is wanted. Tent needs need to be discussed as we have some extra tents-- maybe enough- that purchasing one is not necessary!
A couple of things to remember
One: Have as many of your son's friends join with him as you can.
The more of his friends who are present - the more fun scouts will have.
and, your son will earn his recruiter strip for his scout shirt
Second: The pack treasury will buy the scout books for each
We started registering next year's Tigers this week.
All our new scouts will receive a new fishing pole and tackle box.
We will try to incorporate fishing into the sleepy Hollow Weekend
Scout parents: Please bring in any outgrown scout shirt you may be willing
to donate to a new incoming scout
We have many students from different schools.
Remember, scouting is not school district sensitive. Our parents adhere to a quote from "Field of Dreams"....
"If you build it they will come."
Parents just have to be willing to drive to our meeting place
Our farthest scout - comes in from east Lansing!
JOIN CUB SCOUTS
Lots of fun stuff coming! We continue to recruit 1st through 5th
graders. Many events are being planned. We need more parents
to help plan and come up with new ideas.
Dens will be combined for the Pinewood Derby races.
We want the scout umbers to be close to the same.
More to come!
Every night is question and answer night. We close the meetings with a Circle up........
circle up, is the time for everyone to hear the same answer and
ask questions... Everyone has them!
Pack 386 would like for each boy to have a scout shirt. That tends to make them feel part of the group. Regular jeans would be great. A scout shirt would make a great Christmas gift. After getting a shirt, we would like for them to wear it. Scouts act more like scouts!
When the scout sign ( two straight fingers from a fist ) is raised
mouths go closed. This is for respect for the speaker and to enable all to hear what is being said.
The Next Parent Meeting will be at the picnic on May 28
We will meet at Sharp Park. We will talk after we eat. The attending parents will decide what to do for the fall.. The den leaders of Tigers and Wolves ( grades 1 and 2 ) can ask questions of the other leaders. The den leaders of Bears and Webelos ( grades 3-4-5 ) who just did the first scout books in the last year are always helpful.
This our last meeting. Schedules have allowed that this is the best timeframe to meet to get thru the summer The meeting will be short.
Everyone seems intimidated by these and apprehensive about being active. As a result this is not well attended and therefore less new ideas surface. Our program as in other student programs, is parent driven. A general outline comes to us thru the books but the fun stuff... WE ( all of us!) MUST DECIDE WHAT WE WANT TO DO. Parents who were either boy or girl scouts know their leaders always had stuff for them to do. What they probably don't realize is that their parents had to figure it out also.
You do not have to be a registered leader to share ideas..
To Be A Scout Leader ( a parental safeguard )
All Scout leader applicants submit a form similar to the youth form, but for one additional page. Leaders must list their community associations, drug and criminal histories, and references. This page is submitted to the FBI and any unusual entries/hits & will be reviewed before an applicant is accepted into leadership. Also all scout functions must be attended by at least two registered/accepted leaders. Leaders and scouts must be in full view of all other attendees. Pack 386 wants all parents to be at all the events and meetings they possibly can, whether they are registered leaders or not. Tigers ( 1st graders ) must have a parent of guardian with them at all events. This rule makes sense because most Tigers are very timid, even of their classmates. Comfort comes with time. and a shirt helps
Parent Meeting after
the picnic may be in
Parents will decide!
Thank you for
attending the meetings.
In the past 99% of the
den meetings were held
at Elmwood School.
Den outings for special
trips were the exception.
Den leaders and parents
make that call.
Scouts like to cook..
We have found out that
most scouts really like
two or three ingredient
recipes and like to make
them. Here is dessert
recipe that your cub
scout can help with:
Place one or two Twinkies
in the bottom of a cereal
bowl -- ladle thawed frozen
strawberries on top.
( yellow cake - "whip cream"-
strawberries or other fruit )
tasty- easy- and very quick)
