Cub Pack’s Doing Service and Campfire Cooking! By Regina Halper
Cub Pack 1031 went stargazing and looked at the planets at Schrom Hills Park in Greenbelt. They saw Jupiter and its moons, Saturn and its rings and Mars! They also saw Pegasus, the Pleiades star cluster, Cassiopeia (the big W in the winter sky) and Cygnus!
We are looking forward to our first Holiday party in the school cafeteria! We enjoyed hot Chocolate at the Beltsville Academy Christmas party at the beginning of December. It was nice to join them. We look forward to holiday skits and hearing the scouts play Jingle Bells. We weren’t able to do the obstacle course last month so it will be a Holiday obstacle course to help the Webelos complete their Stronger, Higher Faster requirement. The Webelos checked their knowledge of First Aid safety by playing a Chutes and Ladders game. The Arrow den is finishing on their Into the Wild and Outdoorsman pins.
It is not too late to join, just contact Regina Halper at Pack1031cubscouting@gmail.com for information. We are a family scouting unit. We learn outdoor skills, citizenship, STEM, nature and doing service. We look forward to having another fantastic year! We are back in Beltsville Academy for our den meetings. And happy to be meeting in our usual place and learning about nature, doing service and hiking in the outdoors. We are mask optional and still cautiously progressing toward regular meetings.
