About Cub Scouts

Since its beginning, the Cub Scout program has been a fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where boys and girls can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.

From building a pinewood derby® car to learning to roast the perfect marshmallow with friends at a family campout, your child will LOVE Cub Scouts.

Wolf Den Meeting “Virtual” @ Virtual
Jun 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Hello scouts, family and caregivers. We hope everyone is doing well and safe. We wanted to try and do our first virtual Den Meeting for the Wolves! For our last scheduled meeting that was cancelled, I had purchased some "Make your own Kite" kits for the AIR OF THE WOLF elective. I would like to drop off the kites to you or you can pick up at my home. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE SO, I CAN GET THEM TO YOU.  In addition, I will be sending out individual progress reports to let you know what can be done on your own. I'm sure many of you have this covered. I just need to hear it from you. We will try to include some required adventures to get some of you caught up. As always, we will cover the basics…..Scout Oath, Scout Law and Pledge of Allegiance. So, please be prepared! I will send everyone a new email with a Zoom invitation. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate!

Yours in scouting,

Helga Bonugli

Webelo Den outing – iFly
Jun 24 @ 10:00 am – 12:45 pm

Based on popular demand, the Webelos den is going to iFly in Paramus after school lets out!  We will receive a interactive STEM lesson including physics/aerodynamics lessons in the wind tunnel.  After that, each scout will get to fly in the wind tunnel for 1 minute!  For an additional fee of $7.95, scouts can fly high in the wind tunnel, up to 14ft.  We need to confirm attendance 2-3 weeks prior to the event, so please RSVP by mid-May so we can finalize the headcount.  Check out iFly at the website HERE.  Siblings are welcome to fly!  (in fact, we need 15 fliers minimum so siblings are encouraged).  See below for more details:

Time:  June 24th, 10am

Location:  iFly of Paramus, 211 E. St. Route 4 Paramus, NJ

Cost:  $34.95 per flying participant, $7.95 optional add-on for high burst at end of flight.  Cost in Troop Track is 34.95, please give money to Steve or Katy by June 1st so we can finalize reservation and make payment to iFly.

Additional information:  In order to fly, iFly needs us to fill out waivers in advance.  The link to our specific event is HERE.  Please click through, add all fliers name and email address.  Then, I will log on, send invites and after that you will be able to complete the waivers.  I'm guessing this is the easiest way to complete the waivers, but if it seems to be not working well we will adjust.

Thanks!

Should you need it, our Reservation # is 596091001

Thanks,

Steve
