Pack Hike Reminder and Information
Essentials to bring on the pack hike:
Layers of clothing for the weather (currently partly cloudy with high of 66)
Long lightweight pants (protect from bugs, poison ivy or general scrapes and scratches from walking in the woods)
Hiking boots or trail shoes that can get dirty with comfortable socks (it might be muddy in spots)
Bug spray that can be effective on clothes is recommended (with deet) to protect from ticks.
Water bottle: filled and large enough to last the hike.
Trail food: easy to carry and eat while walking. No big mess or lots of trash, as we have to carry everything with us.
Sun protection: sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater and a hat (not a lot of sun in the woods, but there will be a few sunny spots along the way)
For those who want to drop off, please make certain there is an adult attending from your den. Dropping off is OK, but need to make certain everyone is accounted for and part of a hiking group.
We will be doing a 3.5 to 4 mile hike with a 2.0 mile shorter loop back for anyone that can't handle the longer hike. That said, my 5 year old did an extended version of this hike (4.7 miles) in the fall without a problem.

We are set for two driving tours of 12 people of the Loudoun County Landfill on Monday, April 1st at 9:30 am. Please RSVP below so we can prepare for who will be attending and if we need to schedule an additional tour van.
The Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility is a popular site for scout groups, schools, and others. Visit us and learn how garbage is disposed in a landfill, watch 40-ton tractors smash trash, and get quizzed on recycling.
Save time, register online and drop off your car before the Saturday races and lines.
Most Cub Scouts celebrate Scouting Anniversary Week in February with a "birthday party" called the blue and gold banquet. In nearly all packs, the blue and gold banquet is the highlight of the year. It brings families together for an evening of fun and cheer. It's often the pack meeting for February.

Pack 1154 Webelos and AOL will be attending the Goose Creek District Webelos-o-ree 2018 Saturday Sept 22 with optional overnight camping (Sept 23) at Camp Snyder in Haymarket, VA. The Webelos-o-ree is a camping event designed to introduce Webelos (which includes those working on the Arrow of Light), and their parents to the fun of Boy Scouting. The weekend is filled with fun activities led by our District’s Boy Scout troops. It officially starts off with an opening ceremony Saturday morning and ends Sunday morning after breakfast.
We encourage the boys to attend thru the campout, but you can bring your scout to the event for the day (10am-4pm) or thru campfire (10am-10pm). Though we have enough adults for camping as dens, we welcome adults to attend.
Everyone interested in learning more about Pack 1154 and Cub Scouting is welcome to participate in this one hour program. Potential scouts will participate in hands on activities, while their parents/guardians will spend time with the pack leaders in understanding what makes Cub Scouting great! We will discuss the program, its philosophy and the number of fun activities your child will experience throughout the summer and into next year!
