IMG_20201114_142324567_HDR

Scouting for Food was a big success! The Pelham Food Pantry is busier than ever this year, and Scouts went above and beyond to help our community. Thank you to everyone who participated!

DECEMBER 12TH CAMPOUT

Date: 

December 12th and 13th (Arrival/departure times TBA)

Details:

An overnight campout at Camp Carpenter.
Your SPL will send information regarding arrival and departure times.
What will we do?

  • Plan to cook supper on an open fire.
  • Ramp up your wood tools skills (axe, saw, and knives)
  • Demonstrate first aid skills  for injuries associated with cooking, wood tools, and winter camping.
  • Build a pioneering gadget using lashing and staves.
  • Play games in the woods.

Due to the limited number of Scouts allowed, this will be a “one patrol” event, and the SPL will act as the Patrol Leader.

How to Prepare:

  • Each scout will sleep in their own tent.  It is preferred you sleep in a backpacking “style” tent or hammock.
  • Talk with your Patrol Leader / SPL if you are interested in serving as Quartermaster for this event.
  • Make sure you have a head lamp (preferred) or flashlight.
  • Dress for cold weather with layers. Your sleeping bag needs to be appropriate for 15 degree weather. If not, consider bringing extra quilt/blanket. You MUST have a foam pad or insulation under your bag.
  • For sleeping you SHOULD have a head cover.

CONGRATULATIONS COLE!

Congratulations to Cole for becoming an Eagle Scout! For his Eagle project, he spearheaded a campaign to give a much-needed renovation to the Pelham Senior Center. This included taking down a large dilapidated gazebo, planting a sweeping garden of heritage perennials in its place, and installing a new, safe handrail for senior citizens to use. We are so proud of you and your leadership!

AUGUST 14TH CAMPOUT

We had a great turnout for our campout on August 14th! It was the first time we all got to see each other in a long time, and even with masks and social distancing, we still had a good time. Thank you to Mr. Kupcho and Mr. Wojcik for staying over and making the event extra fun!
