Summer Activities Scehdule - 1st Event Thursday.

Attached you will find a flyer briefly detailing out our summer activities.  More information will be coming out over the summer regarding these events, but wanted to get the schedule out to everyone.

Here is some details for our June events.

This Thursday, June 6th, is our Spring Registration.  You are not required to re-register you children at this time.  For those of you who were new to the Pack last year, there is no new registration process after the first year, simply pay annual dues in September.  This is our opportunity to invite more youth from Wakefield to join our Pack.  If you child has a friend who might be interested, this would be a great opportunity.  It is a drop in event.  We will be having hot dogs and slush at the field as well.  It would be great to see you there.  There is no need to be in Class A uniforms - Class B or other scout T-Shirts are appropriate.

We realize that not everyone has received a Class B Pack T-Shirt.  The order has been placed and as soon as they are in, we will be reaching out.  We apologize for the delay in getting these out to all the youth.

On Sunday, June 9th we will be having our 1st Town Forest clean up service project.  These events include taking a small hike into the town forest.  This is perfect for any aged scout.  We start at 9am and will first meet at the dog park.  There is an Eagle Project for a Scout in Troop 701 happening that weekend at the dog park and we would like to be able to recognize this former Pack member's hard work.  Please remember to wear appropriate Footwear and Dress According to the weather.  In addition, don't forget your Water, Snacks, Bug spray, Sun Screen, Gloves, Trash Bags.  

The last event for the Pack in June is our Spring Camp Out at New England Base Camp in Milton, MA.  For those of you who have registered, I will be sending more information out soon.  If you wish for more information, there is a portion that can still be attended if you did not pre-register, please reach out to me so that I can explain.

Looking forward to an amazing summer!

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.
