Webelos Summer Camp--July 19-21

Sign up for summer camp for all Webelos is happening now.  The camp will take place July 19-21 at Stearns Scout Camp near Annandale.  It is a three night stay with lots of fun to be had.  The cost for each scout is $107, and the pack will pay for the parent.  A 1:1 ratio is recommended, so parents please plan on attending with your child.  Tim needs to know who is attending (the names of both the scout and the adult).  He is also collecting the money, which can be made out to the pack and dropped off at his house.  It should be a lot of fun, so please consider attending!  Go campers!!

Spring Overnight Event--March 30th

A new opportunity is being offered to all cub scouts in Pack 246.  We will be going to a lock-in at Base Camp in Fort Snelling on Friday, March 30.  It begins at 8:00pm and last until 8:00am the next morning.  The cost is $30 for the scout, and the pack will cover the cost of the parent.  The boys will be able to do some rock climbing, bouldering, archery, games, and crafts.  Each scout will also receive a Base Camp t-shirt that they will tie dye at the camp.  This event is for all Cub Scouts ages 5-11.  It should be a blast!  More will be shared at our Blue and Gold Banquet.

Blue and Gold Banquet--Feb. 17

Pack 246 will be holding their annual Blue and Gold Banquet on Friday, February 17 at 6:00pm at the church.  This is a ceremony honoring the Webelos 2 scouts who achieve their Arrow of Light Award.  This is the final step to becoming a Boy Scout. 

Each den is responsible for bringing the following (enough for 12 people) for the potluck:  Tigers-beverages, Wolves-salad/side, Bears-dessert, Webelos 1-main dish, Webelos 2-beverages.

Please r.s.v.p. to Brenda Sandquist by 2-13-12 if you plan on attending. 

Also, if you plan on being in Cub Scouts next year, be ready to sign up for the next year of scouts.  It is $15 to recharter, so bring your checkbook.  You will not have to fill out any new paperwork!  :)
