Cub Pack 1031: Trying to Go Virtual in the “Age of Corona”
Updated: Jun 26
Cub Pack 1031 is trying to adjust to the new normal and have den meetings over the web! The Arrow Den has been meeting on Zoom and reviewed knife safety, played games, and attended an online troop meeting with Troop 1031.
The Tigers (1st graders) and their parents met in late March and went over electives they could complete on their own. Some of the Wolf Den are working on electives individually. Genie D. has completed Germs Alive Below. She shows how slime demonstrate how sneezes stick to everything and glitter to show how germs get passed on with handshakes. Both are very appropriate for everyone to understand today.
Currently, we can’t process new scouts, but hopefully when we can meet we will be able to welcome new scouts to the pack in the summer. Also, our scout year is extended to the end of July.
We are sad to delay our Webelos Crossover and Earth Day with Anacostia Watershed to October 3, but the scout skills we have learned have come in very handy as we learn how to stay safe and stay clean by washing our hands and gain new skills such as using Zoom and learning remotely.
Pack 1031 has fun adventures we will complete over the next year including outdoor adventures, citizenship, and service projects. Pack 1031 is a family pack open to boys and girls K to 5th grade. The pack has activities including camping, hiking, our annual Pinewood Derby, and campfires. We also do participatory citizenship along Little Paint Branch Trail, our toy drive, and Scouting for Food. Along the way we learn responsibility, learn citizenship, play games, and have tons of fun. If you are interested in discovering the fun of Cub Scouts, please contact Regina Halper at Pack1031cubscouting@gmail.com for more information.
A reminder: if you have Cub Scout uniforms that you can part with, please contact Regina Halper so we can pass on “experienced uniforms” to our scouts this fall. The cost of Cub Scouting has been going up, and sharing your uniforms will help cover the cost of participating for our families.
