Recruits Needed

 Attention Colt and Windemere Park Charter Academy  students:  Kindergarten and First grade students are needed for the Tiger dens. An exciting year ahead  is planned. We hope many new families can join us.Registration is $25 for Jan - Dec.   Pack 386 has no weekly/monthly dues and reduced registration fees with popcorn sales!

Students attending any school or home schooled are welcomed into this pack. In fact, the requirement is.... that parents can get their scout to the meetings.

No one can attend all meetings- all the time, but everyone can make some. Scouting is 12 months a year. Each unit is as active as the parents of that unit want it ot be. scouting can be and is for millions of Americans, a way of life, form youngsters to teens thru adulthood. Scouting continually works for family and citizenship.

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 in the events and meetings they possibly can, whether they are registered leaders or not.

Parent meeting... when ?

 The parent meeting is a one hour planning meeting. It is usually held on the first Tuesday of the month,  at the Lansing Mall Food Court ( picnic area ). We  plan the next one for March 4th . We need some feedback. The meeting is from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.  We should do everything we can to recruit Colt and   Windemere Park  Charter Academy for the pinewood derby. We need to recruit all dens  but mostly September's  First and Second graders ( present kindergarteners and 1st graders ). Everyone can help with this.

Did You Know... Eating celery is technically exercise. when you eat celery you burn more calories than you consume. Nine foods to calm a stomach: Bananas, Ginger, Plain Yogurt, Papaya, Apple Sauce, Oatmeal, White Rice, Chamomile Tea,  Chicken Broth.   Never feed bread to ducks, they cannot digest it, it could kill them.

We request that each scout have a scout shirt. A s/shirt plus blue jeans is a good uniform for most of our events.

About The Pack..

Pack  Organization

    Pack 386 is sponsored by the Waverly PTO. It is a big pack. It is an active pack. It is a fun pack.   This pack is one of the largest packs in the central Michigan tri-county area. Located on the west side of Lansing it serves the Delta Township area.  To find out more about meeting organization, parents needs, what we do, and how we keep scouts safe and family costs super low.....

Sleepy Hollow Campout

 Sleepy Hollow has been reserved for us for May 16, 17 and 18.  We each must have a State Park sticker on our vehicle and $2.00 for each night of camping for each camper.

Then we get into what we will need.  Each family must have a tent. There are some extras which the Boy Scout Troop 111 will not be using. Also a few of our own families may have an extra.  Each of us must have a plan.   A change of clothes, jackets, sleeping bags and extra shoes should be considered.

Editorial: Reorg. of Mich. Scout Councils

Part 1: We are experiencing exciting and challenging times in the Lansing area.  Whereas, the Chief Okemos Council used to encompass Eaton, Ingham and parts of Clinton and Shiawassee counties,

This area is now organized as the Chief Okemos District. One of the many districts in the newly organized council. We now have the opportunity to support scouts all the way to the Mackinac Bridge. My interpretation of the State of Michigan map, indicates that our  new local council now includes these  additional counties.   They are Presque Isle, Montmorency, Alpena, Crawford, Oscoda, Alcona,  Roscommon, Ogemaw, Iosco, Clare, Gladwin, Arenac, Isabella, Midland, Huron, Gratiot, Saginaw, Tuscola, Sanilac, Genesee, Lapeer, and St. Clair. In my layman's observation, this is roughly  everything from Lansing, east to Canada and Highway 127 from Lansing, north thru the junction of I-75 -  to the Mackinac Bridge. ( all counties north and east of these two lines!) We still include all of Ingham and Eaton Counties.  The main council office for this new "Water and Woods"  Field Scout Council is in Flint.
