For most of you in Arcadia, school has started and it is time to get back in the swing of things. Led by Scoutmasters Win & Francesca Thomas, Arcadia Cub Scouts first Pack meeting for Pack 6 will be next Wednesday August 20th at 7 pm in the Hopi cafeteria. We will be registering new and old Scouts, and talking about Scout-O-Rama and the upcoming Campout. As always, this first meeting is a business meeting but it really helps us when everyone shows up to get the scoop on the upcoming year.
If you have a son in 1st to 5th grades who would like to join Cub Scouts, please stop by and attend this informational meeting. Annual costs for scouting are very minimal, and the values, friendships and fun that the children enjoy are priceless. Adults looking to give back to the community and share in their son's experiences are encouraged to help in any of the many leadership capacities. I've been a Den Leader for 5 years and I wouldn'd trade this time with my son, Brandon, and his friends for anything!
Our first full fledged Pack Meeting will be on Sept. 10th, also at Hopi at 7:00 pm. With the theme of Getting to Know You, there will be several Ice Breaker activities, including a Human Scavenger Hunt, a Snowball Hunt & a Skittles Search. It should be lots of fun!
The following weekend of Sept. 12-14 is out first Campout. We will have all the campout information at the Pack Meetings. For now, I am attaching a link to the campsite website so you can check it out. http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/coconino/recreation/peaks/oleary-group-camp.shtml
We will be visiting the nearby Meteor Crater that Sunday before returning home. It will be great fun!!
We look forward to another great year!
