January 2020 Freeze Out

posted Mar 5, 2020, 12:08 PM by Pack 33 Admin   [ updated Mar 5, 2020, 12:36 PM ]

Pack 33 had our annual Freeze Out camping at the Nobscot Scout Reservation in Sudbury on the weekend of Jan 25 - 26. We met around 11am, did an opening flag ceremony and then cooked and ate lunch. Afterwards, the pack went on a hike and then worked on a rustic frame project when they returned to Henderson Lodge. The scouts had some time to run around and check out the site while the Webelos helped prepare dinner which was pasta and Jambalaya in a cast iron Ductch oven, prepared on a fire. Because of weather, the fire program took place indoors that night with skits, songs and a story by Mr. Clegg. The Scouts made orange cakes (baked a cake in a hallowed out orange) and then a few headed off to Webelos Woods rustic cabin (no heat, water or bathroom). One hardy scout slept in a tent!  We hope you enjoy the pictures from the weekend and look forward to seeing you all again for our freeze out next year! 

Webelos 2 - January Den Meeting with Outdoor Survival Skills

posted Jan 31, 2020, 12:23 PM by Pack 33 Admin

Webelos 2 had a fun January meeting working on their outdoor survival skills, which included starting fire with flint and steel. 
They also (not pictured) "rescued" Mr. McDonald from the Bowman Conservation Area, and quickly learned that you cannot hear people yelling (better to whistle!). 
And moving around when lost is bad. Great job scouts!

January's Bear Den meeting focused on Baloo the Builder Adventure.

After practicing with some tools, they worked on creating the table centerpieces for the upcoming Blue & Gold Dinner which the Bear Den is responsible for planning and running.

Thank you to the wonderful community of Westborough for helping your neighbors in need with non-perishable food donations!  The Scouts joined forces on Saturday, November 9th for the annual Scouting for Food event. They take so much pride in being able to help their community and drop off car loads of food to the Westborough Food Pantry. The Scouts collected 6,478 lbs. of food (over 3 tons)! Thanks to all the parent drivers and other volunteers that made this happen.
