Summer Family Camp

posted Aug 25, 2019, 2:31 PM by Cub Master

Family camp was held at Bunker Park this year.  We got wet, but ate well.  After the rain came early (and hard) Friday night, we took to our tents and were fine in the morning thanks to a great breakfast! After hiking, biking, and spending some time in the woods, we had a fantastic spaghetti dinner, cleaned up camp, and held our campfire program before heading out Saturday night ahead of the predicted hail storms!  

July is summer camp month

Our Scouts went to the council's summer camps in July.  While the AOL den went to Navajo Camp at Tomahawk Scout camp, the other Dens enjoyed a weekend at Stearns Scout Camp.  The Webelos Outpost experience was quite a challenge this year with a tornado in the area.  We took shelter where we played some games and shared birthday cake made for one of the staff members.

Congratulations to our Scouts who were awarded the rank they've been working on all year, and bridged to the next rank on May 19 at the Ham Lake fire station.

Scouting For Food

posted Apr 11, 2019, 7:33 AM by Cub Master

On Saturday, April 13 (8:00-12:00) we will participate in a national service project known as Scouting for Food by collecting food around Ham Lake and bringing it to NACE food shelf. We will partner with Troop 506 for this event.  The morning will start out with (free) breakfast at the Ham Lake Sportsman's Club at 8:00.  After breakfast, we will form groups and assign Ham Lake neighborhoods to each group.  After collecting food in those neighborhoods, we will return to the Sportsman's Club, combine the collected food, and bring it to NACE.
