Day Camp 2016 -- It's A Wrap!

Day Camp 2016 - Cub Scout Investigators

Pack 1910 Scouts had a fun time of Scouting and adventure at the Mustang District Cub Scout Day Camp this year! Harvest Church hosted us once again this year from June 6-10. This year's theme was C.S.I. - Cub Scout Investigators.

Our scouts were able to take part in crafts, games, songs, skits, archery and BB gun ranges, and a whole host of other activities. Each day camper received a commemorative t-shirt and hat, completed several requirements towards their next rank, and amassed numerous memories and new skills from a week well spent.

Being in the ever capable hands of the Carouthers' leadership, I know that Mustang District Day Camp was one for the record books!  Thank you Brandi and David for all you do for Scouting! 

Anyone that has photos from Day Camp, please send them to April Driggers so that we can compile them for our slide shows through out the year.

On Top Of The World

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the GeoDeck outing Saturday.  We sure felt like we were standing on top of the world while visiting one of the most iconic parts of the Dallas skyline. 

We had amazing outdoor 360-degree panoramic views from 470 feet up above downtown Dallas.  We got to look through high-definition zoom cameras, played with interactive touch screens, used their observation deck telescopes, and got some fun digital photos to boot!

Art Contest

Texas State Parks and the “Get to Know” organization are partnering for the fourth annual Youth Arts Contest. The contest runs through Nov. 1 and anyone 19 and under can enter works of art inspired by the natural beauty in any state park.

“Everyone enjoys state parks in different ways and this is a fun way for young people to express their experiences,” said Russell Fishbeck, deputy director of Texas State Parks.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Youth Arts Contest encourages youth to share their outdoor experiences using art, writing, photography, video and music. Works will be entered in both the state and national Get to Know Contests.

This year’s contest will have three age categories: 14-19, 10-13 and under 10. Prizes will be awarded to an overall winner, as well as to first through fourth places for each age category.

To enter, visit . See this year’s entries in the Texas State Parks Gallery page.

Full contest rules can be found here.

The contest is part of TPWD’s Arts in the Parks program and aims to motivate Texans of all ages to connect with the outdoors through art.

For arts and crafts events in state parks, visit the TPWD Arts & Crafts calendar page.

Lion Hunting Begins!

Starting this fall, Pack 1910 will have the privilege to invite kindergarten boys to join the adventures of Scouting!!

Congratulations to all of the area Cub Scout Packs approved to participate in the Longhorn Council's Lion pilot program.  We are all so excited for this new journey.

Lion merchandise will start arriving in the Scout Shop soon. A new BSA National Lion webpage recently was activated as well.  See that HERE.

We have the privilege of having a dedicated Scouter, Mr. Ed Attel, on board and in place to guide these boys with this new venture!  It's going to be a blast!!!

Summer Event Cancellation

Pack 1910 likes to provide our families with plenty of opportunities to stay engaged and active all summer long.  Why?  Because Scouting is a year-round activity. We take great pride in ensuring that we have a well-rounded annual program full of fun and excitement with new adventures each year.  We do, however, try to piggy-back on some annual community events in the summer that serve the same purpose -- fun, exploration, and education.  Unfortunately, one of our favorites has been canceled.  The monthly Star Parties held at the Fort Worth Museum of Science & History facilitated by the Fort Worth Astronomical Society are no longer on our Pack's summer calendar and all events have been removed from Scoutbook.

This statement was put out on their website:

- NEWS -
(as of June 8, 2016)

MUSEUM STAR PARTIES CANCELLED - It is with great sadness that FWAS has to announce that the monthly public star parties that were hosted by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History have been CANCELLED EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. The Museum believes that it is no longer feasible for them to continue to host these events. FWAS was not involved in this decision, and while we regret the outcome, we must abide by the museum's choice to cancel these events.

Hundreds of adults and children attended these public star parties each month, and often thousands attended during special astronomical events. FWAS members supported these events with their own telescopes, time and knowledge of the sky. Our only reward was sharing our knowledge and love of the night sky with the public.

FWAS is currently searching for a new venue to hold free, easily accessible, public star parties in the Tarrant county area. We will announce our new venue as soon as it has been determined. Please visit our website for further announcements.

This does not effect any of the Fort Worth Astronomical Society's other outreach or public events.
Simply stated, without a venue, they have no place to continue to put on these amazing community service events.  

Therefore, unfortunately, if you were planning to attend one of these events in order to help your son earn his National Summertime Achievement Award, you'll need to plug into our other upcoming events.  Be sure you are using Scoutbook to record your RSVP whether it is a YES or a NO just so we are aware that you HAVE SEEN THE INVITES coming out and are aware of the opportunities.  It also helps us know who to look for at each event.  If your son attends just one per month, he will earn his National Summertime Achievement pin (to be presented at the September Pack Meeting), ensuring that you are tracking his attendance on Scoutbook.

Happy Father's Day

A big shout out to all of the awesome dads that make up the true workhorse behind Pack 1910. Without you, we would all be lost! Sometimes we perceive many benchmark holidays as fabrications by the flower, jewelry or candy companies for the obligatory "atta boy" shout outs but I believe Father's Day is a day that we should all recognize the important contributions that fathers make to their families.

We celebrate those dads that jump in with both feet and take an active role in parenting by being present.  Your presence IS a present!  By attending school functions, sports practices as well as helping supervise camping trips and even den meetings... we all thank you and wish you a Happy Father's Day!
