Hi everyone! We have our hike this Saturday at Rickett's Glen! We will meet at the lower entrance located right on Rte 118 at 9 am. Please be there by 9 am because once we start hiking you may not be able to locate us. Remember to wear appropriate hiking shoes and a water bottle. Also consider having bug spray, a hat, sunglasses, and any other accessories that will make the hike more comfortable and enjoyable for you. Class B uniforms are probably your best bet. Class A uniforms are not the most cofortable to hike in. I hope to see you all there for a great adventure into the woods. Hiking is a bigger and bigger aspect of Scouting as your son progresses and it is a good idea to help them prepare for what Boy Scouts do a lot of. Plus it is always great to get kids outside and get some great exercise!

Hello Summer!

Posted on Jun 2 2016 - 6:52am

Wow this week went fast! Thursday was here and I didn't have this post up yet! A big Thank You to all of our Scouts (and parents!) that came out for the Memorial Day Parade! We had a beautiful day for a parade and you all did a great job! Next up is the Fishing Derby next Saturday at Twin Lakes located at 138 Carpenter Road Harvey's Lake, PA. We start at 8 am because the early worm gets the fish! I hope to see everyone there and hopefully the fish will be biting. If you have your own fishing pole please bring it. We will have bait for everyone to use. A reminder to everyone that is going to Camp this summer to work on getting your physical signed by your physician. Camp will be here before you know it and depending on how busy your physician they may not be able to accommidate you at the last minute. Also be watching for a meeting for Adventure and Resident Campers to discuss decorating our campsite and what we need to bring, like firewood, toilet paper, paper towels and other "campsite" supplies. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at any time.    - Cubmaster Josh

Memorial Day Parade

Posted on May 24 2016 - 9:23pm

Hi everyone! As we get ready for the official kickoff to summer this weekend please remember that the Dallas Memorial Day Parade is Memorial Day, which is this coming Monday! We will meet at the Dallas American legion at 8:30am as the parade begins at 9am. We usually are one of the first groups to march so please be there before 9am. Class A uniforms are required, Scouts can wear their new Den colors if they have them. Sunglasses and hats are acceptable, especially if it is sunny. Water will be available to keep Scouts hydrated. I hope to see everyone there to pay respect to the soldiers that have defended our freedoms. The parade is usually over around 11am-12pm so there will be plenty of time to make it to picnics or BBQ's after the parade. If you have any questions please feel free to contact either your Den Leader or myself. Thank you!      -  Cubmaster Josh
