For all our NEW WEBELOS, if you are getting the TAN uniform then you'll need our Pack number in GREEN on TAN. Good news, you can get all three numbers in ONE patch for only $3! Lisa Witherspoon has them, and they will be available at the upcoming Pack Meeting as well. Saves sewing! Plus, we have WHITE on RED for the BLUE uniform if you need that.

Twilight corn maze, hayride & much more!

Posted on Oct 9 2014 - 9:57am

HalloweenButterhof’s Shady Brook Farm has offered the Scouts an evening that includes a twilight corn maze (scouts would bring flash lights to seek clues along the corn path), a hayride and a bonfire where we can roast marshmellos.There might be a Jersey Devil story or two and hope we don’t meet him! They have also said we could use their grill and I am going early to cook dinner for everyone(hot dogs,chips,lemonade)Keep it simple Scout.  I am looking to have this event on Friday, October 24th  630pm to 830pm.  The only wrinkle is that with all this fun, the distance is approximately 40 minutes from the Signal Hill School. The farm is located at 5800 White Horse Pike in Mullica Township, 08215. The cost for this event is $7 per person. All are welcome! Please try to be on time since it does get dark fast and the group will be moving into the corn maze shortly after eating dinner. It is easy to get to by taking Rt 73 south and then take exit for White Horse Pike south and follow White Horse Pike until you get to The Farm, on your left. Final Count will be at the Pack Meeting but earlier responses are appreciated so I can get the food ready in time.  Email Ted Sulzner at tedsulzner@comcast.net or call 1-609-226-7929. 

Cub Scout Leader Online Training

Posted on Oct 6 2014 - 7:31am

All Scouting units participate in the "Journey to Excellence" and Pack 127 continues to achieve GOLD level! ANY interested adult can view the online training videos, and I encourage everyone to do that, it will at least let you know what your Den Leaders will be doing. If you are a REGISTERED LEADERS, you must complete POSITION-SPECIFIC ONLINE TRAINING and YOUTH PROTECTION. See http://www.scouting.org/training/adult.aspx and scroll down to "position specific" for instructions on how to accomplish the training for your role, which is different based on if you are a Den Leader, Committee, Cubmaster, etc. Thanks!

Den Leader Resources

Posted on Oct 6 2014 - 7:12am

Den Leaders Parents alike will be interested in how our Cub Scouting program focuses on the Scout's handbook, organizing den activities into Den Meetings that lead up to achieving Rank by the time Blue & Gold comes around in the early spring. THOSE OF YOU WHO WERE THINKING OF BEING AN ASSISTANT DEN LEADER, now you can easily understand what is required by browsing complete plans for each Den Meeting using your computer.  By following  these plans, Den Leaders can keep themes synchronized with the Pack meetings and stay on track. See http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Leaders/DenLeaderResources/DenandPackMeetingResourceGuide/DenMeetingPlans.aspx for details, including the specific den meeting plans Den Leaders will use this year!   Den Leaders can still add creative touches to Den Meetings without worry about how to get in all the requirements for rank. Remember, our PACK MEETINGS will continue to incorporate our ceremonies, and seasonal traditions.

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

Posted on Sep 13 2014 - 7:21pm

I encourage all Pack 127 parents to attend this training for your own knowledge of “camping the cub scout way.” The Pack will reimburse registration fees, and process your “leader application” as a Committee Member or Assistant Cubmaster so you can help lead our Pack camping program. EVERY Pack camping trip MUST have at least one leader who has attended BALOO. Details: Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) is a one-day training event that introduces leaders and parents to the skills needed to plan and conduct pack outdoor activities, particularly pack camping. Participants who complete this training course will: Understand the focus of the Cub Scout level of the BSA outdoor program. Gain the skills needed to plan and carry out a successful Cub Scout-level overnight activity. Learn more about the resources available from the BSA for carrying out this activity. This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a pack campout. CHECK THE CALENDAR FOR NEXT OFFERING OF THIS BSA TRAINING.

Cub Scout Overnight Event BSA Requirements

Posted on Sep 3 2014 - 9:46pm

There are a few things all parents need to understand regarding BSA policies that apply to all Pack and Den events, INCLUDING FUNDRAISING. Our Leaders must enforce all National BSA policies, and we will be representing the BSA and our Pack while out in the Community. All registered leaders and boys will be covered by the BSA supplemental liability and accident insurance, but parents and siblings are not. Adults will supervise their children. Boys will as usual need to follow directions given by Pack Leaders, and parents will be responsible for discipline as needed. No alcoholic beverages, inappropriate language, or smoking allowed at any time. BSA Youth Protection will be observed at all times by leaders (two-deep leadership). On overnights, only relatives may sleep together in the same tent, except boys only or girls only may sleep in a tent but then no adults can be in that tent. Only adults or qualified Boy Scouts (such as siblings or Den Chiefs)  will be allowed to tend to any fires, cook over flames, or engage in other potentially unsafe activities such as those involving knives, saws, axes, fuel, matches, etc. Repeated non-compliance with these policies may result in that family being asked to depart without recourse. The medical form found at link below should be submitted to the Den Leader so it can be reviewed by event leaders and held during the event in case of of incident. Scouts are not allowed to self-administer any medications, so parents must hold and dispense. Form ONLY needs parent signature, by the way. http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/ahmr.aspx LET’S HAVE A SAFE AND FUN TIME AT THESE EVENTS!
