Pack Meeting: AOL Court of Honor and Crossover Ceremony - Thursday, May 3, 2018

Posted on Apr 19 2018 - 9:51pm

On Thursday, May 3, 2018, our Arrow of Light Scouts will participate in their final Pack 70 meeting activity, a formal Court of Honor and Crossover Ceremony in their honor, as they receive their Arrow of Light rank awards and crossover from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.  Boy Scouts and Leaders from Troop 70 will be in attendance to welcome their newest Scouts and present them with their Boy Scout neckerchiefs.  If you haven't attended an Arrow of Light Court of Honor and Crossover Ceremony before, I highly recommend that you and your Scout attend to experience this in person.  AOL parents who wish to have formal pictures taken with their Scout after the ceremony can do so in the library across the hall.  Pizza will be served.

BALOO - New Leader Outdoor Skills - April 20-21

BALOO stands for Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation.  This course is an overnight training course where adult leaders can learn the basics for cub scout outings, activities, and campouts.  You’ll learn what can and cannot be done and best practices based on the Guide to Safe Scouting.  It is a hands-on course where you will get to cook and camp along with some classroom components.  It takes place at Hoyt Scout Reservation (Redding) and is required training for our Pack to camp.  You need at least one BALOO trained adult on every pack campout.    Most of our senior adult leadership has taken this course and it never expires!  It runs April 20th through April 21st - 6pm to 8pm at Hoyt.  Speak wih Steve Prostor, John Stimpson or Chris Winalski for more information.  The Pack pays for this training outing for all who attend.
