No Comments »

Happy New Year Scouts!  After a great 2014 we are getting ready to get the new year going! We had a busy 2014 with an aquarium sleepover, apple picking, a UB football game sleepover and so much more! This year will be just as fun, exciting, and educational!

Chestnut Ridge Sledding

January 17th, will be the day we head out to Chestnut Ridge for some sledding. There will be snow this time! Arrive around 10am and be sure to bring your bicycle helmets and pack your own lunch. Bundle up for some fun!

Winter Camp Out

The winter camp out will be January 23-25 at Stonehaven, at the Niagara Cabin. All tigers, wolves, and bears attending need to bring their Akela with them. Be sure to pick up a supplies list for all of the things you will need for the trip. You can pick one up at a cub scout meeting. Also, have the trip paid for no later than January 21st to be sure you don’t lose your spot for the trip. While on the campout we will be snowshoeing, having outdoor campfires, and camping foods. Bring along some games to play while you’re hanging out in your cabins and prepare to have a lot of fun.

Cub Scout Pack 529 is having their Winter Campout this year at Stonehaven, at the Niagara Cabin from Friday, January 23 at 5pm through Sunday, January 25th after breakfast. You can get to Stonehaven by following these directions in Google Maps.

The Winter Campout is our annual opportunity for Akela’s and their Scouts to get some binding time, and for the Scouts to play and experience a little bit of the cold by camping out in a cabin at BSA’s Camp Stonehaven. There will be plenty of activities, including (hopefully) an outdoor campfire, camping food, and lots of fun for everyone.

We’ll have an update for you in the next several days with additional details , but in the meantime here is a packing list and directions to the camp that you can print out: Winter 2015 Packing List
