April Pack 168 important dates and reminders

We hope everyone enjoyed their Spring Break!  Below is a summary of upcoming activities for our Pack over the next few weeks:  


Faith:  Having inner strength and confidence based on our trust in God.  (Robert) Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, believed that reverence and duty to God should be an important part of the Scouting movement, and for every Scout and Scouter. With family guidance, Cub Scouts will develop in their own faith. 

  • Plan to attend the Pack meeting this week
  • Sign up for Scout Day Camp
  • Sign up for April and May camping trips

Selling Scout Camp Cards is a big fundraiser that helps pay for Scouts to go to Cub Scout and/or Webelos Summer Day Camp.  The cards are only $5 each and Scouts receive $2 of each sale in their Scout account.  Proceeds from your Scout Camp Card sales and unsold cards due back to Angela Matusik by Wednesday, April 22.

Only 6 boys are signed up for Bass Pro Camp Card Sale

The Camp Card Show and Sell is tomorrow from 10-3 at Bass Pro Shop at Festival Bay.  Only 6 boys have signed up to sell cards so far so there are plenty of times available at 11, 12 and 1 pm for one-hour shifts.  

Use this link to sign up:

Or, you can email me at angela_matusik@yahoo.com or call/text at (407) 516-7673. I'm planning to be out there at 10-11 and 2-3. We really need other people for the hours in between. It just takes one hour and is good "life" experience for the boys. Also, the total number of camp cards sold will be split between the boys based on the number of hours they each worked. Again, that money will be put in their Scout Account after the sale is over and can be used for Summer Camp reimbursement and/or Pack Dues in the fall.

Thank you,
