Calling all 1776 families! (Program Updates)

Happy weekend, Pack 1776 families! We hope all of the scouts are having a great start to the school year, although we know it looks a bit different. Parents and guardians, please check your email. Our cubmaster has sent out an update with guidelines and program ideas for the 2020-2021 scouting year. Included in the email is a 1-2minute survey that we are asking all parents/guardians to fill out in order to help us plan for our program. The survey results and guidelines will be discussed at a zoom parent meeting on Monday Sept 21st, at 7pm. The zoom link and login information will be sent via email that morning.

If you did not receive this email, check spam. If it is still not there, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email, or on Facebook messenger and we will make sure you get it. Any questions you may have can be filled out on the survey and addressed during the parent meeting. We look forward to seeing familiar faces on zoom and hopefully finding our way back to the scouting trail, safely, soon.

Yours In Scouting,

The leaders of Pack 1776

Webelos Adventure: Cast Iron ChefLast evening, the Webelos began working on the requirements towards the Cast Iron Chef. We discussed nutrition, as well as the importance of establishing nutritional goals & creating a food journal. All scouts were asked to assist, their families, with preparing one nutritious meal this week.

I have also included a link for a template that your child can use to start creating a food journal for the week. They can also use this template to begin brainstorming nutritional goals for themselves.

I can’t wait to hear about what the scouts cooked this Monday during our Den meeting.

What a fun Open House!

A warm thanks to everyone who came out tonight to the Cub Scout Pack 1776 Open House. We saw many new faces, as well as our dear familiar ones. The children thoroughly enjoyed “SCIENCE!” With Dan, electrical circuitry with Mike, Catapults of Fun and corn hole with Nora and Digging for Dinosaurs with Kristine. We all had an evening of learning through fun, comradery, and laughs. A special thank you to the boy scouts and venturing crew (both of 1776) who assisted us tonight, and of course to Regina, our Cub Master, who met with all of the parents.  We really have a great group here, and we very much look forward to expanding our cub community! See     you all next week!

**Remember, it’s never too late to meet with us. If you were unavailable for our Open House, you are welcome to swing by any Monday meeting between 7:00PM and 8:00PM!

Welcome ALL to our annual Open House

We are all looking forward to meeting new faces tonight. There is a lot of information and fun planned for this evening!

Oh the fun we had at Valley Forge

We had a wonderful (approx) 5 mile hike at Valley Forge last month. The weather was perfect and the company even better.  It was a nice turnout for scout attendance and even though the paths we took did not lead us to he dinosaur fossils, there’s always next time!  Way to go Cubs Dennis, Evan and Megan! You are 1/3 of the way toward your summer participation badge! Can’t wait to see who joins us in August!!  Have a happy and safe summer ☀️ check out some pictures!

Dear Parents,
Can you believe that the end of our scouting year is upon us? Where did the time magically go? Just a moment ago it was September and we were just starting the year and then POOF!!! It is over. We are having our end of year Blue and Gold Banquet on June 2, 2018. The doors open at 12:15 and the banquet starts at 1:00. Tickets are available. Each scout gets a ticket for themself and 2 tickets for parents. Any extra tickets are $5.00 each. Payment at the door is acceptable. Head counts are needed by May 30th. We look forward to ending the year with the same spirit that we have had all year!

Thank you!

Webelos Badge

On Monday the Webelos den continued our “ADVENTURES IN SCIENCE“. We covered requirement 3a by planting tomato seeds in 2 different types of soil; “fertilized soil” and “standard potting soil” to see if “fertilized soil” is better than “standard soil”.

Next week we will be continuing our adventure by creating circuits using light bulbs and batteries

Webelos Update- February 19, 2018

Webelos and Arrow of Light Elective Adventure: Adventures In ScienceOn Monday February 19th, the Webelos Den worked on The Adventures in Science requirement 3g of the Webelos Handbook. The Scouts explored safe chemical reactions with household materials by using two substances and then observed what happened when the amounts of the reactants were increased.

Working together, they inflated a balloon using baking soda and vinegar. The goal of the project was to demonstrate the power of gas produced when the baking soda and vinegar are mixed. The goal is for the balloon to be blown up by the gas created.

If your Scout did not attend Mondays meeting, they can complete this requirement at home using the following instructions:

What materials are required?
• Balloon (1)
• Small bottle (cleaned glass beverage bottle will work well) (1)
• Small funnel (1)
• Baking soda (2 tablespoons)
• Vinegar (4 ounces)

Where can the materials be found?

Most materials can be found at the dollar store.

1. Using the funnel, add the baking soda to each balloon (two people may be needed for this; one person to hold the balloon open and the other person to put the baking soda inside of the balloon).
2. Pour the vinegar into the bottle.
3. Carefully fit the balloon over the bottle opening (be careful not to drop the baking soda into the vinegar yet).
4. Once the balloon is fitted snugly on the nozzle, hold up the balloon and allow the baking soda to fall into the vinegar.
5. Observe the chemical reaction and effect on the balloon.
6. Record observations.

Webelos 1 & 2 Update – 11/13/2017

Webelos Elective Adventure: Art ExplosionOn Monday, both Webelos dens worked together on the Art Explosion adventure. In this adventure Webelos Scouts discovered that exploring the arts is a fun way to try new things! They had the opportunity to develop their creative potential while making original works of art after discovering what inspired them during their visit to a virtual art museum. When sharing their project ideas with each other, the Webelos Scouts had the opportunity to respect the creations of others while valuing their own ideas.

The Webelos scouts completed Art Explosion Requirements 1, 2, 3b, 3c, and 3i meeting all of the requirements to complete this adventure.  The scouts were encouraged to go through the Art Explosion adventure in their handbooks and consider working on any of the optional sub-requirements in requirement 3 and the optional requirement 4 for some additional exploration into the arts.
