<![CDATA[Outdoor Pack Meeting (Camp Everwood, Sharon, MA) Friday May 17th]]>Sun, 05 May 2013 23:26:44 GMThttp://www.pack13.org/newsblog/-outdoor-pack-meeting-camp-everwood-sharon-mafriday-may-17thThe outdoor pack meeting will be at Camp Everwood in Sharon. It is located at 125 Lakeview Street in Sharon. Directions are here: http://www.everwooddaycamp.com/everwood-day-camp-parents/driving-directions .

Things to know:
a) The meeting will be on Friday, May 17th at 7:00. Given the fun that can be had around the campfire on a spring evening, we may go a little later than usual, but will try to be wrapped up by 8:30-8:45. We will wrap up the “business” part of the meeting towards the front, so anyone with younger scouts who is concerned about the later time can feel free to leave when they feel it appropriate.
b) There are restroom facilities there, and we do have a building we can use in case of poor weather. So we are planning on being there rain or shine.
c) The pack will be providing drinks and ingredients for the scouts to make S'mores.
d) We will be doing the meeting around a camp fire. For those wishing more comfort than can be found sitting on the ground, some sort of chair may not be a bad idea.
e) “A scout is prepared.” Don’t forget flashlights and bug spray!
f) We would like each den to prepare a skit or a song to share. As time permits, we will also allow individuals or small groups to freelance. Always fun!

I hope that everyone has been enjoying their summer.  While we have not been having regular den and pack meetings, the Pack has not been idle!  Many scouts attended day camp at Camp Norse or overnight camp at Camp Carpenter and had a blast with activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, athletics, Archery, and BB shooting.  There have been other fun pack events such as an overnight camping trip in the outfield of McCoy Stadium after watching a Pawsox game, attending a Red Sox game and a Pack ice cream social.

Our volunteer adult leaders have not been idle either!  We held our annual pack planning meeting and this upcoming year looks awesome!  We are planning some really cool pack sleepovers including sleeping on a battleship at Battleship Cove, the Mystic Aquarium, a camping overnight at Camp Norse, and a possible adventure night at the Foxboro YMCA.  We have some other really fun activities in the works as well such as indoor rock climbing, a hayride, tubing at Nashoba, and attending events such as a Providence Bruins game, Monster Truck Jam, and Harlem Globetrotters.  As usual we will also be holding our annual Pinewood Derby and Rocket Launch.

You can review the entire 2012/2013 calendar on our Pack 13 Event Calendar page.

Our regular den meetings will be starting on the week of September 10 and our first pack meeting will be on Friday Sept 21st.  Your den leaders should be in touch to give you details.

For new incoming Tigers (incoming 1st graders), we will be determining a meeting day and time shortly for den meetings and breaking up into as many dens as needed (6-8 scouts per den).  Tiger parents, please contact our cubmaster Paul Wheeler if you have any questions.  He can be reached at cubmaster@pack13.org.

Yours in Scouting,
