Cold Toes is Back!

Category : Activities , Camping , Featured , News

Saturday April 17th, 2p-7p @ Camp Lazarus

Hello Scouting Families,

We are SO excited to announce that we will be back at Camp Lazarus for Cold Toes this Spring. While this year’s plans may look a little different, we still have plenty to look forward to. Enclosed is a flyer with preliminary details, with more to follow as the date approaches.

Yours in Scouting,

Hiking Club – FEB 27

Deer Haven Park this Saturday at 10am. (4184 Liberty Rd, Delaware)


Hello Pack 197 Families!

It’s been a very fun and busy week! We’ve had Valentine’s Day sledding, checked in and raced our Pinewood Derby cars, AND we have a virtual Pack Meeting on deck…but, we can’t close out February without our Monthly Family Hike!

We’ll be meeting at Deer Haven Park this Saturday at 10am. (4184 Liberty Rd, Delaware) The weather will be warming up this week…so it’s a great time to join other families in the great outdoors!

Once again we will be taking advantage of the Delaware Preservation Parks Letterbox Adventure…but adding our own spin on it! Our guided hike will be about 1 mile long and culminate in Scouts finding the “treasure box” with the bead for their hiking stick, and a small prize.

And, as always, whether this is your 1st family hike or your 5th…all are welcome. The guided hike file will be sent later in the week, and we will have hiking stick supplies on hand if your Scout is missing any pieces!

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me at steponmeg@yahoo.com.
