Recycle Raingutter Regatta

The Bears learned a little about the how-and-why of recycling... then put their creativity to the test making sailboats out of whatever they could find. The boys experimented with different designs and had a great time trying to get their boats to fly down the gutter. Who brought the mop?!

Bear Den Hovercrafts

The Bear den had a great time making hovercrafts at a recent den meeting. What's the MPG on these things, anyway?

Camp Sayre

Camp Sayre is in the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, Mass. From Wakefield, take I-93 south through Boston, continuing on 93 at the Braintree Split. Take Exit 3, Ponkapoag Trail towards Houghton's Pond. Turn right at Blue Hill River Road, then right at Hillside Street. Just after the State Police station, bear left onto Unquity Road. The camp is roughly 1.3 miles down the road on your left-hand side.
A Pack representative will meet you in the parking area to direct you to our camp site.

Parent Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who attended the Parents Meeting last night.  We're happy that everyone sees the value in volunteering for the Pack. As Ben mentioned, it's a great way to model responsibility and character for our children, and have fun in the process.  

We'll be in touch with everyone that expressed interest in helping out. We're still looking for some "back office" help with the Committee Chair roles;  this will become a more urgent need in the fall so please consider it.

Click here to see the presentation from last night.  Please feel free to contact Jeff or Ben with any questions or comments -- or, simply, to ask what you can do. Thanks!
