Spring 2021 is looking to be a great time for PACK 626!  We have a full range of events and programs that we are planning to do together.  

Our recent parents meeting was well attended and we distributed information about KEY DATES which you can add to your personal calendars!

First SAVE the date for the PINE WOOD DERBY on April 25th!

We opted for an outdoor event and set up will be at St. Odilia's where we will be serving a BLUE and GOLD themed picnic- hosted by Subway.  We will race our DERBY cars on an outdoor track!  And we will hand out any new awards that may have been earned by various DENS. Please use the sign-up genius below to inform how many scouts and parents will attend this event by APRIL 14th!

In the event of rain, our postponement date is Sunday May 16th, during our ALL Pack Picnic!

ALSO....check out sign-ups for SCOUT CAMPS.  We would like commitments for Weblos Woods, Camp Akela, and Navajo by SATURDAY MARCH 27th so that we can secure spots. THEY ARE ALREADY FILLING UP!  We will update registration every 24 hours and reach out if the date below for the camps become waitlisted--which is already true for dates for Camp Akela! If you cannot attend on the dates our PACK has listed for Camp Akela,  but still want to attend you can register as a family.  Ask Robert or Jackie for details. 

FOR Weblos Woods @ Sterns (Weblos)  MAY 13, 14th and 15th 
This camp is one of two camps that Weblos should consider to prepare for the Arrow of Light.  A parent is recommended to attend with their scout, but much of the work of camping will be on the scouts themselves.  Siblings of registered scouts may attend but programming is at the 3rd to 5th grade age level. 
(see reservation link below)

FOR Camp Akela @Phillipo (All pack and family) JULY 9th, 10th and 11th 
This camp is for scouts 1-4th grade and meant to give scouts and their family a true camp experience which they can develop core skills in scouting!  Tents are in family style set up (canvas tents are available for registered guests (see reservation link below)

FOR "Navajo at Tomahawk" (Weblos only) AUGUST 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th (see reservation link below)

Watch for dates for "Kiwanis" (forthcoming)!

We would like to get commitments for all CAMPS ASAP!  Spots are filling up and we don't want to miss the chance to CAMP together for Kiwanis and Arrow of Light!

FINALLY- For those participating in the religious awards (Wolves and Weblos) your booklets are DUE no later than the 25th!
