My name is Ross Clouser, and I am the Vice Chief of Program for Hunnikick Lodge 76, Order of the Arrow. We are inviting all 2nd year Webelos and 1st year Boy Scouts to a very fun and exhilarating event.
As the boys progress from Webelos to Boy Scouts, a lot of activities will become more challenging, especially in outdoor skills. Scouts will need to develop stronger outdoor skills as they take on new adventures.
Our goal is to get younger scouts more familiar with the outdoors, so we are inviting all 2nd year Webelos and 1st year Boy Scouts to participate in our annual Outdoor Skills Day! You son may also invite a non-Scout friend, who is in the same age group.
The cost of Outdoor Skills Day is $7 per scout and $4 per non-scout friend. Outdoor Skills Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 8 a.m. through 4 p.m. at Pine Tree Environmental and Education Center in Tabernacle, New Jersey.
This year, we will also be having our annual Council wide Arrow of Light and Crossover Ceremony. All of your boys who received their Arrow of Light and crossed over this year are welcome to attend our Arrow of Light and Crossover Ceremony. After the Ceremony, there will be a BBQ and a campfire! Scouts receiving the Arrow of Light award will also get a free Council Shoulder Patch as well.
The cost of Outdoor Skills Day for a participant not receiving the Arrow of Light is $7 per scout and $4 per non-scout which covers lunch. If you son is going through the Arrow of Light and Crossover Ceremony, the cost will be $17, which includes his participation throughout the day, his participation at the Ceremony, and 3 guest’s participation at the ceremony as well. Outdoor Skills Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 8am through 4pm if your son is staying just for the day. If your son is staying for the whole day and for the evening ceremonies and BBQ, they will be dismissed at 6pm. Outdoor Skills Day is at Pine Tree Environmental and Outdoor Center in Tabernacle, New Jersey.
Outdoor Skills Day 2013 will include:
· Staff performing skits and teaching skills
o Fire Building
o First Aid
· Opportunity to meet scouts who are the same age from other Packs/Troop
To sign up, please send the enclosed form and check made out to Hunnikick Lodge 76 to: Hunnikick Lodge 76, 693 Rancocas Road, Westampton, NJ 08060. The registration deadline is April 6, 2013. There is a limit on how many participants can come, so sign up early before space fills up.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. When you see your scout after they have participated in Outdoor Skills Day, you will be amazed by all the new skills they have mastered. Don’t have your scouts miss out on this exciting opportunity!
