Pack Event-Pinewood Derby Workshop at the Scout House Sat, 3/7 9-12 pm

Posted on Feb 27 2015 - 3:12pm

The Pinewood Derby 2015 is being hosted by the Wolves.

By this time, all scouts in Pack 110 should have received their official
Pinewood derby kit for the big race on Saturday March 21st.   If you did not get
your kit yet, please contact your Den Leader.    

The Pinewood Derby is
a fantastic event that combines craftsmanship, competition and sportsmanship.   
Car building is meant to be a joint activity with parents and scouts working
together, with the Scout doing most of the work on the car.      There is a lot
of info online on how to build a car, and the Pack will provide help at our
March 7th workshop if you need some assistance.

Once again this year we
will be running a Coolest Car Category with the winner voted by the scouts, and
an unlimited category for siblings or parents who wish to build and race a
car.

Saturday March 7th, 9:00 - Noon -
Car building workshop at the scout house.

Cradle of Liberty-Community Summer Day and Twilight camps for Cub Scouts

Posted on Feb 27 2015 - 7:39am

 

Day and Twilight Camps are one of the best opportunities provided to young Cub Scouts and provides a full week of program and activities not otherwise accessible to this age group. Different camps throughout the summer provide variations in activities based on the resources available, so no one week is alike!

Pack Event-Pack 110 is offering 2 sessions at Camp Hart at Musser Reserve July 15-18 and July 22-25!

Posted on Feb 27 2015 - 7:34am

 

 

Pack 110 is organizing a trip for the pack to experience the Cub Adventures at Camp Hart (Musser Scout Reservation, Pennsburg PA) this summer, July 15-18 and July 22-25. We will arrive Wednesday afternoon and leave Saturday morning. Can't make it? You're not alone! We realize not everyone can attend the sessions we have chosen. This is a wonderful experience.  So grab your boots, spurs, and 10-gallon hat for this Wild West themed camp to remember.

Posted on Feb 26 2015 - 1:09pm

Our Pack 110 Spring Camp Out will take place on May 1st through 3rd, 2015 at Ricketts Glen State Park. The park is in Benton, PA, about 15 miles NW of Wilkes Barre, PA (about a 2 and a half hour drive from Gladwyne). The events will start Saturday morning at about 10:00 am, but you are welcome to come up on Friday night and camp out. Make sure you can get there by 7:30, so there is still some daylight to set up your tent. There will be a few leaders there that evening, but please bring your own breakfast for Saturday morning if you do come.
