Along with the races, activities include duckoration, bounce house, face painting, hayrides, silly sing-a-long, animal encounters, fire truck exploration, and hikes along the creek and throughout the garden. The first race is at 11 a.m., followed by a little rubber duck race at 11:15 a.m., then silly song sing-a-long with Mr. Harley at 11:45 a.m. and two more little rubber duck races between 12:30 p.m. and 1:15 p.m.  Prizes for the top three in each race.  Donations benefits the Mead Garden Young Naturalist Summer Camp.

Please come and go as you please!  This is a community event that we thought would be fun to share and attend.  It also supports the park that hosts our annual District Cub-O-Ree campout in October.


Saturday, April 29 – Council Activity: Family Fest, 7 am – 4 pm, Winter Park Central Park. A fun day of Packs and Troops showcasing activities for the community to enjoy!  We host a booth and ask for volunteers to work the booth. Last year we did slingshots, and we are looking for ideas for this year.  One thought is a noodle obstacle course if we are allowed the room.  Please let us know if you would like to help plan the event.

Pack 168 - Operation Shoebox Donation Request from Wolf Den

Greetings Pack 168!

One of our Wolf den projects is to create a care package to honor the heroes that protect our country through military service.   Heroes are brave and they would really enjoy small treats to reward their bravery.  We are going to create a care package with the following donations to be sent to who assembles and ships the items.  Please bring these items to our April 5, 2017 Pack Meeting for assembly. One of the characteristics of heroes that we discussed is "selflessness."  We hope that you all can give a little bit and be a "selfless" hero yourself.  Thank you for your selflessness!

Sincerely,
Jamison (Wolf Den)

Good Morning! 

Saturday, March 18 – Sunday, March 19, Pack Camping: Moss Park, a one-night, two-day Campout to start your Spring Break (12901 Moss Park Rd, Orlando, FL 32832).

Miss Donna has planned several activities for the two days.  Activities start at the main playground at 10 am on Saturday.  There will be an afternoon break for tent set-up.  There will be plenty to do, so we are planning on providing organized and free fun time until mid-afternoon on Sunday.

  • Hunting for Animal Signs
  • Plaster Tracks
  • Stargazing
  • Playground
  • Campfire
  • Fishing (bring your own poles and bait)
  • Ladderball
  • Orienteering (tentative)

Please bring your own lunches. There are grills available.  If there is a volunteer willing to shop for Pack Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast, we are all ears.  Otherwise, we will have everyone bring their own.

If you arrive Saturday, you do not need to pay Park entrance fee because you will be covered under the camping fee (mention you are with Pack 168).  If you arrive Sunday, you will need to pay the entrance fee.

Please reply back to this email before Thursday evening if you plan to attend or would like to shop for group emails.  Please keep Donna's number handy as she will be the only contact for locating the Pack in the park.  Donna Rayfield: 407-496-0114.
