Fall Camping - Almost Here!

posted Sep 22, 2018, 6:24 PM by Peter Jacobus   [ updated Oct 15, 2018, 5:30 PM ]

Fall camping is on October 26-28 at the Patapsco State Park (Hilton area). It's about a 30 min drive from Wesley Freedom UMC, which should allow great flexibility for families to travel to/from the campground.  The area has great hiking, fishing, and exploring right from the campsite and a tire park is close by.

The details and agenda for each day are attached.  Many details -- please look -- each Den has responsibilities,  Please RSVP to your Den Leader this week.  We'll need that to purchase the food and make sure that we have everything we need to have a GREAT weekend!

Several Points:  
  • If you don't have all of the Personal Camping items (see attached), please let your den leader know.  We can help as many of us have extras.
  • Please RSVP soon, as that helps all of us who are planning events and purchasing items.
  • Please fill out the Medical Form, parts A&B (see attached below) and return to your Den Lader before Camping.  All adults and youth participating in camping need a medical for filled out prior to the camping event.
Many thanks to Alysa Simms, the Camping coordinator for helping to pull this all together.

2018 Pushcart Derby

posted Sep 5, 2018, 12:14 PM by Aaron Mais

Pack 719's Pushcart derby is our opening event for the year and takes place on Sunday, September 9th at 2 PM.

Siblings, Grandparents, friends and those interested in scouting are all welcome to attend.

Help Needed: We'll need both volunteers to help set up beforehand (arrive 12:30-1:00) and volunteers to help run events (5 total events). These are very simple events that most of the scouts have done before and will require no previous knowledge on the part of the volunteers, It would be helpful to have a cell phone with a stopwatch on it, as most of the events are timed.

Please let Greg Montgomery ( know if you can be there with your scout and help either set up or run a game.

PLEASE NOTE: All participants - scouts, siblings, anybody who will be riding on a cart - needs to have a bike helmet. You will not be allowed to participate without one.

Refreshments will be served after the derby, while the results are tallied.
