A Neighbor in Need Thanksgiving  Food Drive

Pack 230 Is supporting “A Neighbor in Need” with our annual Scouting for Food service project. Bags will be distributed at Thursday’s meeting and food will be collected at the November 21 meeting.

  • REQUIREMENTS (Keep copies for yourself, The School, and the Parish)
  • Please Contact Mark Pellegrino, Chartered Organization Representative, with questions.
  • Parents cannot go on trips unless they have their clearances.
  • We have recommended that all parents, even if they are not registering, get their clearance so there is no confusion.
  • Anyone who has contact with youth as a volunteer with Troop or Pack 230 must take PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN TRAINING CLASS. If you are a registered leader you must take this class. Committee members or parents who do not have contact with youth do not need to take this class, but it is highly recommended, and required for transporting Scouts not your child or attending activities with them where there will be other children.
  • PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE CLASS ONLINE AT:  WWW.VIRTUSONLINE.ORG

    If any Cub Scout would like to earn one of the Catholic religious medals, please email Jen Wiggins. She will be coordinating the purchase of the activity booklets and the distribution of the medals. The totals for these items come to $15. Please PayPal or make checks payable to “Pack 230.”

The booklets have about 20 little activities the boys are supposed to complete; most only take 10 minutes or so. Then in March or April, they’ll meet in the rectory to discuss what they did. In May at our Scout Mass, celebrated just before the Blue and Gold dinner, The medals will be blessed and presented to the boys after the homily.

First and second grade Cub Scouts can earn the Light of Christ medal. (Although it seems working on the Light of Christ medal is better geared to a second grader than a first grader, but first graders are still eligible.) Third, fourth, and fifth grade cub scouts can earn the Parvuli Dei medal. 

It’s that time again. WCC Shooting Sports will run our monthly Air Rifle Competition and Cub Scout BB Shootout. It will be on the second Sunday of each month, from September thru May inside Fosters Hall at Ockanickon Scout Reservation. Follow the link below to register online for the BB Shootout. Air Rifle Competition does not require advanced registration.

Come out to Ockanickon Scout Reservation and enjoy the opportunity to shoot BB guns with other Cubs, Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. (Sorry Lion Cubs are not permitted)

Learn how to shoot from NRA Certified Instructors, BB Rangemasters and Coaches.

Safety is our #1 priority. An NRA Range Safety Officer will be on staff. 

On the second Sunday of each month, starting in January, WCC Shooting Sports Committee will run a BB Shootout. Come and practice your skills in preparation to earn the Cub Scout Shooting Sports Awards.
