Pack 1910 Summer Adventures

Last year we polled the scouts to ask them what kind of activities they wanted for their Cub Scout program.  We asked... they answered and thus, our four-year summer rotation of activities was born.

We set up a specific four-year schedule of different activities so that, for your Scout's entire Cub Scout career, he wouldn't be participating in the same thing summer after summer.  

Cub Scouts is a year-round program and our Pack makes the most of each summer to bring opportunities for our Scouts to stay engaged and involved all year long!

We will be utilizing the Sign-up Genius to track RSVP's for these events.  This helps the adult coordinators know which Scouts to expect so that no one is left behind.  Also, a few of these event require advance deposits.  Once you RSVP, you will be contacted to confirm how you wish to pay.  PayPal invoices can be sent via e-mail or checks mailed to the treasurer.  

One important thing to note -- Please be sure you are RSVPing -- even if it is a "no" -- so that we know you received the invitation information.  The courtesy of a reply is greatly appreciated.  

Please understand that many of these programs we are planning on require not only a minimum number of participants and as stated previously, a deposit.  If you RSVP and are not able to attend, you will still need to pay your portion as it likely has already been covered by the Pack or, alternatively, find a family to go in your place and have them reimburse you. Most of these events do not allow refunds.  Thank you for your understanding.

The Sign-Up Genius will have all the information for each specific activity.  This is merely for you to save the date!

Pack 1910 Summer Program 2015:

8-12:  Mustang District Day Camp.  See THIS PAGE on our website that is dedicated to all things Day Camp.
27:  Stargazing Party at the Fort Worth Museum of Science & History. 
28:  Burger's Lake picnic and swimming.

**Did your scout register for Day Camp?  If so, they're on their way to earning the Outdoor Activity Award.  Read all about the requirements for this awesome award here. Please note, however, that since the ENTIRE Cub Scout program is changing at the end of this month, the new requirements for this award to coincide with the new achievements can be found on THIS document.  Scroll to Page 3.  ANY Scout can earn this... You would be working on the requirements for the rank they are advancing to.

12-15:  Cub Scout Resident Camp, Sid Richardson
15-18:  Cub Scout Resident Camp, Sid Richardson
25:  Stargazing Party at the Fort Worth Museum of Science & History.
31:  Overnighter at the Perot Museum 

8:  Horseback trail ride around Lake Grapevine
22:  Annual Raingutter Regatta, pizza party and ice cream back to school bash 

...that by joining us for just one event a month, your scout is eligible for the National Summertime Achievement Award?  These are rank specific, color-coordinated very cool special pins to place on their uniform to show off their involvement.

If enough of his den participates, they will earn the Summertime Award for their DEN! And, collectively, if enough of our Scouts participate all summer long, our PACK earns the National Summertime Pack Award!  How cool is THAT?  Awards will be presented at the Scout level during the September Pack meeting.
