End of Summer Picnic and Hike

Event Information: 
Event Information: 

As the summer comes to a close, we will gather as a pack on Sunday, August 27, 1:00 pm at the Picnic Shelter "A" in the Shorefield Picnic and Playground Area of Wheaton Regional Park, 2000 Shorefield Road, Wheaton, MD 20902 (see map).  Please feel free to bring the whole family, and you are encouraged to invite along any friends who might be interested in learning more about scouting as well.


We will be grilling hot dogs and chicken and providing water and lemonade.  Please bring a potluck side dish or dessert to share.

There will be games and playground entertainment, a beautiful hike through Wheaton Regional Park, and a preview of the year ahead!

We will have information, applications and new handbooks for returning and new scouts, Pack T-shirts for sale, and much more.

Also, this would be a great time to pay the annual dues of $100 for the scouting year.

Finally, with the new scouting year we will be collecting health forms.  As a reminder, and for those of you who are new to the pack, we are required by Cub Scouts to maintain these forms especially when we have campouts.  They are held in the strictest confidence and will be returned at the end of the scouting year.  The health forms are available here:  http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf.  You only need to fill out Parts A and B -- no need for a doctor's visit.  And if your scout went to Camp Tuckahoe, no need to fill them out again -- I already have them.  And if you have them from day camp, then you can use those also.

The hike will be after the picnic.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  Hope to see you all this Sunday!
