Important dates for April and May

Good Morning Scout Families,

We wanted to send out information about our upcoming events.

Saturday April 20th



Since we do not have a Pack meeting in April, we will be having an optional Pack Hike through the trails of Breakheart.  Please meet at the Voke parking lot entrance at 8:45 am , we will be starting promptly at 9 am. We anticipate to take at least 3 hours for our hike.  Make sure to pack snacks, plenty of water, and any hiking essentials (all listed in your handbooks).  Make sure to dress for the weather.  At least one guardian must be with your scout.  

Friday May 3rd



Our Arrow of Light scouts will be receiving their highest rank in cub scouts and crossing over to the troop.  We are asking that all Webelo 1 (Den 2) scouts attend the event.  It begins at 6 pm.  All other scouts, this is optional.  It will be a longer ceremony with speakers which may not be best for some of our younger scouts.

Friday May 10th 



This is the event we have been working on all year.  Every scout will crossover to their new rank (Tigers become Wolves, etc).  We start the night off with a potluck dinner.  Dinner will start promptly at 6 pm, please arrive at 5:45 so that we can be ready for dinner.  Please sign up for your food choice on the attached sign up genius.  Remember we have nut allergies within the pack, so please make an effort not to bring something with nuts in it.  


Friday May 10th



This is the date that money will be due for the spring camp out happening on Saturday June 15th.  A separate email detailing out the event will be coming out later next week.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

YIS,
Your Pack Committee

BSA Girls Troop - For girls 11 years old and older

BSA Troop 701 is hosting an informational night about girls joining the troop On Tuesday April 30th at 7pm. If you are interested, please come and ask questions. There will be a chance for new sign ups for both Cub Scouts and the Troop in June.  

TROOP 701 TO WELCOME GIRLS TO SCOUTS BSA PROGRAM Informational Meeting to be held on April 30 Wakefield Troop 701 is pleased to announce that it plans to welcome girls who want to join the Scouts BSA program. The troop will be open to all girls ages 11 to 17. 

An informational meeting will be held for all girls and their parents or guardians on Tuesday, April 30 at 7 p.m. at the First Parish Congregational Church. All youth and adults interested in learning more about the Scouts BSA program are invited to attend. 

As of February 1, 2019, the Boy Scouts of America launched a program to allow girls to join troops and engage in the same scouting program as boys. This will enable girls to earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout. Girls will enjoy the same curriculum and the same program as boys. The girls will be in a girl-led troop with its own Scoutmaster, but will otherwise share the same resources as the boy-led troop. The new program is called Scouts BSA, and will enable girls to enjoy the same activities that boy scouts have engaged in for more than 108 years, to deliver character development and values-based leadership training. The mission of Scouts BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. The girls will run the same Scouting program, earn the same merit badges, and achieve the same ranks, up to and including the highest rank of Eagle Scout. 

Troop 701 is chartered to the First Parish Congregational Church, the stone church by the Lake, at One Church Street in Wakefield. For further information about the troop please visit www.troop701wakefield.org. Questions can be emailed to troop701wakefield@gmail.com.
