The Pack at Highroad

Posted on Oct 28 2013 - 11:35am
highroad2013 The Pack trekked to Camp Highroad and a fun time was had by all. Indian lore, fire building, brewing of tea (from gathered wild mint), flashlight tag, tales of the "Ghost Bear" and the award of the Bobcat badge to the Tiger Cubs. Some 75 Scouts, siblings and strap hangers attended, and pretty much everybody made it home in one piece.

Webelos-o-Ree @ Camp Snyder

Posted on Oct 4 2013 - 9:09am

 

Webelos Scouts of Pack 1550 joined their contemporaries from all around Loudoun County for the 9th Annual Goose Creek District “Webelos-o-Ree” held at Camp Snyder on September 28-29th.  Webelos met with Boy Scouts and learned about what is coming up when they cross over. Fire building, first aid, “monkey bridging,” archery and like, accompanied cooking their own tin-foil dinners amongst the burning coals. A campfire sponsored by the Order of the Arrow was attended by over 300 Scouts, and the lads spent the night to depart the following morning. The “Webelos-o-Ree” is held every year and everyone in a plaid neckerchief is encouraged to attend. It’s a great time and there’s a lot of new thing to hear about, particularly on the topic of why to continue Scouting after the award of the Arrow of Light and how to pick a Troop that best fits your needs.

The Scouts of 1550 rallied at Rust Library on Sunday, August 25th to lend a hand to that valued and valuable institution. The lads stepped up to plant donated mums in the brick flowerboxes that line the exterior. As the saying goes, "many hands make quick work" so they were done in short order. Following this the Pack adjourned to the neighboring Symington Water Park for fun in the sun. It was a good use of one of the last days of Summer. Now on to Join Scouting Night!

Summertime Scouting

A flurry of activity for the Pack during the Summer months. Cubs from Pack 1550 were part of the Soda Bottle Rocket Derby, Day and Twilight Camp at Morvern Park, the annual sleepover with the Frederick Keys on the ball field, marching in the Independence Day Parade, trekking on the inaugural History on the Scouting Trail (HOST) hike in our Nation's Capital, spending a week in the back country at Goshen Scout Reservation, welcoming International Scouts attending the National Jamboree at Summit Bechtel Reserve, the Badmitton BBQ at Ida Lee and working with thier families toward a plethora of advancements. All that, plus the month of August is just getting started. There are chances for fun at Camp Snyder, Symington Water Park, Udvar Hazy, and a number of other venues. Come out to the Annual Planning meeting at Rust Library on Thursday, August 15th at 6PM. Bring the kiddies (they can wander the stacks if they get bored). We'll talk about what the Pack wants to do over the next twelve months and add things to the calendar as the Parents and Cubs so desire.
