Fall Family Camping/September Pack Meeting

Posted by Michele Oconnor on Sep 11 2014 - 12:33pm

We are trying something new this year - our fall Family Camping will take place the last weekend of September at Artillery Ridge Campgrounds in Gettysburg, PA.  Going to Gettysburg will give us the opportunity to explore some history as well as enjoy outdoor time with our families. Come up on Saturday and spend one day like we've done traditionally for fall camping or come up on Friday evening and make a weekend of it.  Our September pack meeting will be late Saturday afternoon so we'll kill two birds with one stone (metaphorically speaking . . . no good Scout would kill a bird or two).  The signup is now available so join us for this unique event.

Fall is coming - do you need a Pack sweatshirt?

Posted by Michele Oconnor on Sep 11 2014 - 12:28pm

It's almost time for some chilly weather and what's better on a cold day than a warm and fashoinable sweatshirt? 

John D'Antonio has a few available.  Please contact him if you are interested.

You should have heard from your den leader by now with your order forms and dates for store sales. It's our one big fundraiser for the year and we'd like to defend our record-selling order last year.  If you haven't heard

Troop 618 Caving Trip (Web IIs invited)

Posted by Chris Hobbs on Aug 30 2014 - 12:36pm
Dear Blue Dragon and Storm Dragon Patrols,
As previously emailed, Troop 618 is scheduled to go on a caving camping trip on the weekend of September 12th, and I am the event leader.  The Troop would like to invite the Webelos 2/Arrow of Light scouts to join the Troop in this event.  This would be potentially a great opportunity for the scouts to fulfill requirement #4 and to get to know Troop 618 and vice versa.  
We will be camping at Heritage Scout Reservation and going to Laurel Caverns in Pennsylvania.  We would arrive at the campgrounds on Friday afternoon, go caving on Saturday and leave for home on early Sunday morning.  For the Webelos scouts, they could "tent" up like for Webelos-o-ree, which you know is how the boy scouts would camp, and the accompanying adults could bring individual tents or share a tent.  Our expectation would be that there would be an accompanying adult for each Webelos scout unless related where one parent would be sufficient.  This would also allow the parents to get to know the Troop and some of the adult leaders too.  As for meals, we can discuss how to best do it.
Depending on how many scouts attend from both Troop 618 and Pack 702 would determine whether we have the Webelos scouts do the Upper Caving alone or whether combine it with a geology pin.  It is an age and number issue.  At this point, we will likely participate in the Upper Caving for the younger scouts and not do the pin.  The cost is $39 per person for full participation.  If cost is a significant issue, let me know, but we do have to cover costs, including fees for caving.
Please consider joining us for this camping trip.  It should be alot of fun.  Please email me if you are interested in attending and do not have an login access with Troop 618 website.  Hope to hear from you soon.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.  You can also call me during the evenings at (C) 410-598-9908
For those of you who have already signed up, we look forward to seeing you soon.
Troop 618
Tom Lee, ASM
