WARREN TWP. – Louveteau Pack 182 took advantage of its first official two-night camporee since the start of the pandemic on October 22 and 23 at the Watchung reserve.
Warren’s scouts were Cub Pack 32 from Watchung and Cub Pack 35 from Cranford.
The Cub pack 182 were anxious to return to the tents after a long hiatus. Night camping with its adventures and activities is a longstanding tradition in Cub Scouting, a tradition that families look forward to year after year.
After more than a year with no camping experience, the leaders of Pack 182 planned and organized the event. The goal of Camporee was to expose Kindergarten to Grade 5 Scouts and their families to a range of outdoor skills while having fun.
Den Leader Mariette Dzeletovic and Assistant Cubmaster Ryan Valentino ran the Camporee. Cubmaster Chris Bellmann has taught archery, teaching safety and skills to all ages and grades. Rangemaster Tom Ventriglia led the BB pistol line.
Many leaders and parents have helped plan and ensure a safe and eventful weekend. It included nature hikes, knot and survival lessons, an epic Capture the Flag game as well as campfire meals and of course the coveted s’mores.
New members can join the Warren Cub Scout Pack 182 at any time of the year, and many join simultaneously at the start of a new school year. Scouts from surrounding towns are welcome. To learn more about Scouting, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
