Chutes and Ladders Picnic and Playtime: Wednesday, July 18, 5:30-9pm

Posted on Jun 22 2018 - 8:53pm

Hi pack!!

Lets get together at Hyland Park play area affectionately known as Chutes and Ladders for a fun evening of catching up and letting the kids play.  Bring a picnic supper for your family and the Pack will provide a treat for dessert:-)  Please dress your Scout in a class B (Scout t-shirt) for the event to help the kiddo stick out a little easier.  There is a grassy area right outside the fenced in play area that we could set up some lawn games for the nonclimbers.  If you have a lawn game your scout (or you) would like to play bring it along.  If it rains we will move the event to the next Wednesday.  Hope to see you there!  This is a casual night. Come when you can, leave when you must;-)

NEW Youth Protection Training!!!

Posted on Jun 22 2018 - 11:52am

Hi everyone! 

BSA has updated the Youth Protection Training for 2018!  All leaders are required to complete the new YPT by October 1.  I know that seems really far away, but why not just take care of it over the summer:-) One less thing to do in the fall.  The new YPT is up and running. Below is the link to directions.  It is available on the myscouting app.  (However the test portion did not format well on my android phone and that portion I needed to complete online.) There are 3 modules to listen to followed by a test module.  You can take the training in chunks, walk away when you want and it saves your place or do it all at once.  It is A LOT longer than the previous version. The content is much more in depth, not showing the scenerios.  The new YPT is good for 2 years.
