Buffalo Naval Park
All information regarding the overnight at the Buffalo Naval Park should be in your hands by now. If you’re looking for a copy, you can download it here.

A few notes from Mr. Clint:

  • Bring money for the snack bar and/or gift shop. Scouts are responsible for their own money and what they purchase.
  • Make sure you pick up your Scout by 9:30 – equipment needs to be off the ship by then
  • Food allergies should have been given to Mr. Clint already
  • Medications need to be addressed by adult chapperone or notify Mr. Clint

No Comments »

Legacy 11Saturday October 8th – 8:30 am to 4:00 pm
$10.00 per person
Fee includes:  Legacy 11 t-shirts and patches, activities, and lunch.

We’ll meet at Beaver Island in the Main Parking Lot (Lot 1) at 8:30 for coffee, juice and Timbits. Cub scouts and parents will sign in at shelter 1B at 9 AM

Lunch will be provided by Legacy 11 – hot dogs are on the menu

Families will need to bring shovels and hard rakes

Cubs should wear old clothes and have proper footwear, rain gear, work gloves and water bottles to have with them while working. Water will be available there.

Groups will be 6 to 8 cubs and their parents. We will be planting trees and shrubs. The holes for the trees will be pre-dug and trees will be next to holes.

Adults will help put the trees in the holes. Cubs will back fill the hole and prepare the trees -wrap, stake, water, and mulch.

During the instructions for the tree preparation the boys will learn about trees. For example, why the species of trees are selected, what is the purpose of the wrap, why would the trees need to be staked, etc. Check your Cub Scout Handbook to see if any badge requirements will be fulfilled.

Each family needs to fill out a NYS Parks volunteer service agreement. They’ll be available at our meetings and also at the event.

The Park people will have other planting activities as a “plan b” in case there would be more time available after the tree planting program.

Siblings are welcome, but won’t get a t-shirt and will not have lunch provided. Each child must be entered on the NYS Parks volunteer service agreement.

This is a work day! We’ll take rest breaks as needed, but we won’t have time to play in the park. Families are welcome to stay after the event and play or picnic.
