Summer Camp Tips

posted Jun 8, 2011, 10:47 AM by John Seder


A Medform must be completed by anyone staying overnight at camp. It must be filled out and signed by an MD. Completed medical forms are good for 1 year. So if last year’s form was signed by an MD after July 1, it would be good for this year.

All medications are to be in the original bottle and in a zip lock baggie. Write the name of the medication, the dosage, and the child’s name on a 3x5 card and put that into the baggie. Only put enough medication in the bottles to last the week. This way, if the bottle is lost or forgotten, you won’t be missing all of the child’s medication. Medications will be stored in the nurses office only, except for inhalers and epi-pens.

We always meet at the parking lot kiddy corner to the Church. We will leave by 9AM. Anyone without a medform won’t be able to attend. In cases of hardship, I can usually work something out, but I need to know about it ahead of time.

The boys should pack enough clothes for 3 nights and 4 days of outdoor fun. A rain poncho is a good idea. A water bottle is a must. Shower gear, towels, lots of clean socks and underwear is also a must. A sleeping bag or similar set up will be needed as well. The boys will be in the pool every day. Swim trunks are required to swim in the pool. If an adult wants to get in the pool, he/she must also have swim wear, and must take the swim test given on the opening day of camp.

Bring some spending money as the trading post is open throughout the day and has candy, soda, and other things.

The camp will provide all food and eating utensils. 1 camp shirt also comes with the price of admission. We usually wear them on the last day.

Summer Camp at Cub World is just around the corner.  Our Pack will be attending "Resident Camp: Session 3" from June 26 -29.  We will meet in the parking lot that is catty-corner to the Church at 9am Sunday, June 26th.

Parents are encouraged to click here for a rundown of what you and your scout will need to make the most out of camp. 

We also attached several documents to this article that may help parents who have questions.  (The "Summer Camp Leaders Guide" is very informative.)

New Pack Website

posted May 17, 2011, 12:32 PM by John Seder

Welcome to the new website.  We are training the Pack Leaders (Akela) to post stories, updates their calendars, and post some pictures - so 'Bear" with us for a while until everyone learns how to do it.

Websites are getting easier to develop, easier to maintain, and easier to work as a group to keep them current.  Hopefully as we move forward you will notice some amazing things happening in our Pack as a direct result of our new website.  We look forward to watching that happen and hopefully you are also!

Advancement at Sycamore Park

The Pack will meet at Sycamore Park on Friday, May 6th at 7pm for the annual Graduation and Advancement Ceremony.  Our cubs will move to the next level of Scouting and we encourage the entire family to join us for a special night at the park. 

Congratulations to all of our scouts and thank you for a great year of fun, activities, and learning. We'll see you at the next level!

Sycamore Park is on St Rt 132 just south of Batavia Village.

Tiger Cubs on TV

Set your DVR to WKRC at 4:15 on Monday.

The Tiger Cub Den is scheduled to visit the studio at 3:30 on Monday, April 25 for a very interesting Go-and-See that involves a tour of the station and some time with the weatherman.  It should be interesting so stay tuned.  So far the den has been to the Cincinnati Police Museum, a The Uninon Township Fire Station, and a Reds game.  This will be the last Go-and-See because they will advance to Wolf Cubs at the next pack meeting.  

Cake Auction Raised $250

posted Apr 20, 2011, 5:05 PM by John Seder

When the Cub Scouts were asked to make a cake with a 'Native American' theme they thought it was a good idea.  That was not the same reaction from some of the parents - who are asked to assist their scouts. One parent even asked, "Who thought of that?" and another parent was heard responding, "not me".  But, despite the reluctant parent reaction, the kids came through with over ten cakes for the Pack 742's Annual Cake Auction.

Every cake sold during the auction and the highest cake sold for $55.00 (we think it was the parent who said, "not me").

The Pack raised nearly $250.00 in a very heated auction with laughs for all.  The money will be used for Pack events and community projects.  And, on a side note, the highest selling cake was immediately cut up and eaten by everyone.  Good times!
