Hurricane Relief

While most of NYC was unscathed by Hurricane Irene, the storm made a huge impact upstate in the Empire State. We are asked once again to join together to help aid our fellow New Yorkers. Pouch Camp has been asked to be one of the pick-up and drop-off locations to help those upstate who lost everything they own. They are looking for almost any item you can think of, clothing, food,  formula, non-perishable foods, books , magazines). Almost all the families affected were left with nothing. They will begin pick-up weekly for the first couple of months and then as needed thereafter. We will be collecting items until February. Once again, everyone’s help is greatly appreciated in this matter. As Scouts, we are reminded to do a good turn daily.

List of items to be collected: Formula; diapers; non-perishable foods; clothing(especially winter clothing); any other items you can think of.

BALOO and OWLS Training – 2011

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation and Outdoor Webelos Leader Skills

When: 12 November, 2011
Where: Berlin Lodge, Pouch Camp
Cost: $10 per person

You asked for it and now we have it. One course. One day. Two fantastic learning experiences. Any adult who has an interest in camping and learning outdoor skills can take this course.  Designed for leaders who are in charge of Pack and Webelos overnight activities, this course covers the rules, guidelines, and safety considerations for “Pack Family Camping” and “Webelos Campouts”. It teaches the why and how of Cub Scout camping; planning, equipment, meal preparation, fire safety, stoves, and lanterns; first aid and sanitation; nature hikes, games, and campfire programs. Participants will receive both BALOO and OWLS certification. Local Tour Permits require that a Pack must have a BALOO-certified adult leader attend Cub Scout Campouts and overnight activities.

This is a great course for Tiger, Cub or Webelos parents who have little or no camping experience. It is an entry-level outdoor training with emphasis on outdoor activities and skills pertaining to and geared toward Cub Scout camping and outdoor experiences.
