Welcome to Pack 194
Rock Climbing Overnight Event
7:30 PM Feb 29 – 8:30 AM March 1
$50 per participant (chaperones free)
$10 extra for challenge course
February 24: Pack Meeting at JGMS 7:00 PM
Mar 8: Blue and Gold: 1-4 PM at St. Michael’s. (Note this is earlier than previous years’ events, so we will have a snack rather than a meal.)
Also at the Blue and Gold we have our annual cake decorating contest. The cakes will be judged for best decoration (not taste) with preference given to those with a scouting theme. REMEMBER: the cake must be decorated by males only; the scout can have help from dads, uncles, brothers, etc. but NO Women.
The raingutter Regatta will be held on April 13 at the JGMS cafeteria.
This event is similar to the Pinewood derby but much less effort. The boys build a sailboat from a kit and propel the boats down the “raingutter” using their own wind. We will be selling the kits at the pack meeting.
Scouting offers young people opportunities to learn about the outdoors, citizenship, and cooking, while making new friends. Pack 194 is a part of the Boy Scouts of America, and we are the unit that runs the BSA’s Cub Scout program for children in grades K-5 for Bedford, Massachusetts. Our energetic and enthusiastic group of well-trained, volunteer adult leaders are committed to running the Cub Scout program, and making it an experience filled with lots of purposeful fun, adventure, and learning for the children of Bedford. Pack 194 has a 50+ year tradition and is one of the more active packs in eastern Massachusetts.
Scouting focuses on encouraging and reinforcing important character traits, such as citizenship and leadership. Cub Scouting also introduces many important life-skills including things like working with tools and emergency preparedness.
