Please return the RSVP form and payment to Troop 173, BSA, Todd Waters, 179 Marcella Road, Parsippany 07054 by November 15, 2018.

Winnebago is less than 30 minutes from our neighborhood. When you use your mapping software or GPS, use the address 102 Timberbrook Road, Rockaway NJ 07866. One of our adult leaders will meet you upon arrival in camp. We will then walk about ½ mile to our cabin and serve you lunch.

Our facilities for this campout include cabins with electricity and wood-burning stove or gas hot air heat. Cots are provided, but you will need to bring a warm sleeping bag and/or blankets and a pillow. Heated restrooms are available at the Dining Hall which is nearby and where we will have our evening meal. Other information regarding camping equipment can be found in the Boy Scout Handbook.

You do NOT need to bring any cooking equipment or food, but you should bring eating utensils if you have them. (Scouts are strongly discouraged from bringing “junk” food, and handheld electronics (like Ipods) are not permitted.) 

Cub Scouts should plan on wearing their uniforms for the evening dinner.

During the campout, the boys will have a chance to try out some Boy Scouting activities, enjoy some hearty Scout cooking (Saturday dinner will be Turkey cooked outdoors over the coals and served with all the trimmings) and have a lot of fun learning some skills as well. We might also do a hike so water bottles and hiking boots would be good idea. They can complete several rank requirements, besides the overnight camping experience.

Tiger Circles Duty to God @ Personal Time
Dec 1 @ 9:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Hello Scouts and Parents: For the Month of December the Scouts will work on the requirement "Tiger Circles Duty to God". We understand that religion is a very personal thing to each family. So, for the month of December the scouts will work with their parents on their personal time to accomplish the requirements. Once done, please have the scout draw or create an art project describing their experience. We will ask each child what they did during the January Den Meeting. Therefore, there will be NO Tiger meeting for the month of December. 

Please review the scout book! Here are the requirements that are stated:

Complete requirement 1. and at least 2 others

1.Discuss with your parent, guardian, den leader, or other caring adult what it means to do your duty to God. Tell how you do your duty to God in your daily life.

2. With a family member, attend a religious service or other activity that show how your family expresses reverence for God.

3. Earn the religious emblem of your faith that is appropriate for your age or grade. 

4. Help with a local service project and talk with your den or family about helping others is part of our duty to God.

5. With the approval of your parent, guardian, den leader, or other caring adult, think of and then carry out an act of kindness or respect that you think shows duty to God. 

Please feel free to reach out to your den leaders, Helga, Nicole, and Michele if you have any questions.

AOL & Webelo Den Meeting
Event Date: Thursday, December 6, 2018
Event Time: 7:00PM – 8:30PM
Event Location: Littleton School
Dress Requirements: Scout Uniform
Our AOL Den will be working on requirements for the Arrow of Light rank. This meeting will focus on the Scouting Adventure Requirements.

All Webelo scouts are invited to attend this meeting to work on their knots!

The AOL meeting and activity schedule has been built to ensure that all AOL scouts are able to complete all requirements for their Arrow of Light Rank prior to the Blue & Gold Banquet in early March, 2019. We understand that families have many different commitments and it may not be possible to attend all meetings. If an AOL scout misses a meeting or other scheduled activity (including camping trips and joint activities with local scout troops) that is directly related to one or more Arrow of Light requirements, it is important that the AOL scout works with his family and pack leadership to complete the missed requirement/s as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email or phone 973-437-6163.

Please be sure to RSVP to let us know you are coming. If you have forgotten your TroopTrack login or are not sure how to login and RSVP, please email to let us know
