Indoor Camping Trip is Coming Up on March 3rd

Posted on Feb 14 2017 - 2:42am

Last year's Indoor Camping Trip was so popular, we're doing it again.   The event will be held as a lock-in at Triangle Presbyterian Church beginning at 7PM on Friday night, March 3rd.  It will be a night full of fun and games such as basketball, tag, frisbee, Simon Says, followed by an indoor "campfire" with songs and smores then a movie to end the night.  You are welcome to bring a tent (no stakes, of course) or just a sleepoing bag and a pillow to crash on the floor.  Air mattresses and cots are welcome.  We will wake to a pancake breakfast and then send you on your way.  None of this is possible without volunteers, so please plan to help out.  A sign up will come out next week.  

Fundraising - Camp Cards

Posted on Feb 13 2017 - 11:27pm

The Pack will be selling Camp Cards again this year and will be distributed in Den Meetings this week.  For each $5 Camp Card sold, we keep $2.50 and the Occoneechee Council will receive $2.50 with no cost to us.  The purpose of selling these cards is to raise money for the pack, but also to get your scout excited about attending the Mawat District Day Camp June 15 - 17, 2017.  A portion of the money we make will be available to "Send a Scout to Camp" if financial need arises.

Scout Sunday is This Sunday 12 February

Posted on Feb 7 2017 - 4:20am

Our charter organization, Parkwood United Methodist Church, invites all Pack 495 Scouts and their families to take part in Scout Sunday on Sunday, 12 February.  Please plan to come to the 10:45AM worship service in Class A uniform and stay afterwards for a reception with snacks and lots of Scout memorabilia from Cubmaster Bailey and Unit Commissioner Eddie Hanson.  Scouts can help serve during the service, either as a greeter or handing out church bulletins at the door.  If you or your Scout is interested in reading one of the scripture passages during the service, please contact Cubmaster Bailey (davidl.bailey@sas.com).  You are also encouraged to bring your Scout memorabilia to display at the reception.  This can be patches, Pinewood Derby Cars, handbooks, uniforms, etc.  Hope to see you there.
