Here is what you can expect...
Scouting Skills Day is a wonderful way to kick off the year. It allows new Pack members the chance to get to know other Scouts in their Den as well as other members of the Pack. We have a great time being together in the outdoors and enjoying the fellowship of Pack 58.
It is Pack 58’s philosophy that if you get a Scout outdoors you can instill a life-long passion for the environment and love of nature. We take every opportunity to gather around a campfire. Camping outdoors is a great learning experience in itself. Scouts learn how to have fun without the comforts of home and all those electronic distractions!
We will divide into groups based on grade (1st-5th) and rotate through 5 outdoor activities. Scouts will have the opportunity to work on a skit or song to present at the evening campfire. This is a wonderful activity that encourages the Scouts to work together. Presenting the skit or song in front of the Pack teaches presentation skills and builds individual confidence.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Scouts and leaders in Class B uniform (Pack 58 T-shirt and Scout shorts), hat is optional. We will have Class B t-shirts available for all new Scouts and a t-shirt exchange is available for existing Scouts who need a new size (bring a laundered official Class-B t-shirt and exchange for a replacement for only $1).
WHAT TO BRING:
It is essential that you READ the Scouting Skills packet provided on this page. It gives you all of the details necessary to have a great experience for this event. Pack list is included.
Please help us with environmental conservancy and excess trash that we are responsible for removing from Fisher Farm property. We have a huge group that has the potential for a truck load of trash!
Every Scout will receive a plastic mug for drinking, you may also bring a refillable water bottle if desired.
REQUIRED - personal mess-kit for dinner
