Sm'ores Archives - Cub Pack 110

Pack 110 is very excited for our final camping overnight of the scouting year at French Creek State Park! Once an industrial complex for the fledgling United States of America, today French Creek State Park is an oasis for people and wildlife. Straddling the Schuylkill Highlands, the 7,730-acre park is the largest block of contiguous forest between Washington D.C. and New York City. French Creek has more than 30 miles of trails for hiking and biking and 2 lakes for fishing and boating. It is beautiful!

Pack 110 has been anxiously waiting for winter to break and to get back outdoors. We are very excited for our first camping trip of 2021 at KOA in West Chester. The KOA is a fun, close, and easy overnight trip which makes it a great trip for any first-time campers. We have tent sites right on the bank of the Brandywine Creek!

Food:

Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, the pack will not be providing food in order to limit sharing. Please bring dinner for you and your scout to enjoy on Saturday evening. WaWa hoagies or other similar food that travels well is perfect. We will set up a fire if families would like to cook individually wrapped foil packs over the campfire – this worked great at our French Creek camping trip in October! See this YouTube video for some ideas.

For breakfast on Sunday, something quick and easy is best (fruit, muffins, or dry cereal / granola).

Please email Brian Denney with any questions. Also please review the Pack 110 COVID-19 Risk Reduction Plan on the pack’s website.

Our cub scouts are currently building rockets that we expect will be launched several hundred feet into the air.  All of the rockets have streamers to ensure their safe return.  Please join us and your children can help us retrieve the rockets once they return to earth.  Bring your assembled rocket kit and the pack will provide the rocket motor and all launch equipment.

Not a Cub Scout yet?

This is a great opportunity to come see what it’s all about. Bring your own rocket to launch or just come out to watch the show.  Let Lauren Buckalew (Committee Chair) or Clif Beam (Cubmaster) know you are coming. ANY INTERESTED BOYS OR GIRLS AGES K-4 ARE INVITED!

Want to invite a friend?

This is a great opportunity for any family interested in learning more about Cub Scouts to come out and see what Pack 110 is all about. Please feel free to bring them along and send them our Rocket Launch Flyer for more information. Any scout that brings a friend will get a special prize!

Join us for our traditional fall hayride and campfire at Highland Orchards on November 14th! The wagon will depart promptly at 6 pm. Around the campfire, we will enjoy s’mores and a few skits and songs performed by our scouts. Please arrive early to buy Highland Orchards’ famous apple cider and apple cider donuts.

 

Registration:

Register early. Space is limited to 15 families (~30 people) to ensure social distance between families on the wagon. Please only sign up registered scouts and one parent/guardian per family unit. This is one of our most popular events and we expect it to sell out quickly. Registration is FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Food:

The pack will provide individual packets of s’mores ingredients (graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate) to each scout. If you would rather bring your own ingredients, please do so.

Don’t forget to purchase Highland Orchards’ famous apple cider and apple cider donuts to enjoy around the campfire too!

 

COVID precautions:

As outlined in the Pack 110 COVID-19 Risk Reduction Plan on the pack website, the health and safety of scouts and their families are our priority. All participants must wear a mask during the hayride and around the campfire.
