This week will be the last of our November Pioneering meetings. Scouts will be focusing on lashings – please bring the rope you were given earlier this month.
This Saturday the Pocono Environmental Education Center is offering a Winter Ecology Hike. For Scouts working towards First Class, this is a great way to fulfill First Class Requirement 5(a). As winter approaches, PEEC is offering a number of cross country skiing and snowshoeing events. If Scouts are interested in going together, please check the calendar at PEEC.org, select a date, and speak to your Patrol Leader or Senior Patrol Leader about scheduling an outing.
