Webelos Resident Camp - 2018

posted Aug 9, 2018, 7:54 AM by Webmaster Pack30

This year we had 5 Webelos scouts attend the Potawatomi Area Council Webelos Resident Camp at Camp Long Lake in Dundee, WI. It was 4 days and 3 nights of great activities, where our scouts experienced a brief taste of how a BSA summer camp would be. The Long Lake Camp staff did a phenomenal job of teaching our scouts many activities toward their Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks. The Pack 30 scouts also attended an overnight outpost camp where they set up tents in a remote section of the camp and cooked their own dinners under the supervision of the staff.

All of our scouts had a great time, and were glad they could attend. A special thanks to the Webelos Den Leaders: Mr. Kohlmann and Mr. Windish, as well as Assistant Cub Master Mr. Bradley and Committee Chair Mr. Wagner for attending as adult leaders for the camp.

We hope to see many more great things from our Webelos this year!

posted Jul 22, 2018, 9:01 PM by Webmaster Pack30

In June our soon-to-be 5th graders planned the Pack Camp-out at Menomonee County Park in Menomonee Falls. It was three days, two nights of fun activities to celebrate the beginning of the summer vacation. This year we had a lot of activities, including: 
  • wood chopping
  • fire building
  • water purification
  • hiking
  • slack-line
  • para-cord key chains
  • cooking
  • group games
Participants that went on the full hike will receive the Potawatomi Area Council Trail Trekker award for the Menomonee Park hike.
Throughout the weekend we had 35 families participate with 106 youth and adults enjoying the fun.

Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast - 2018

posted Jul 22, 2018, 8:36 PM by Webmaster Pack30

Once a year, we have an opportunity to assist our chartered organization, the Waukesha Noon Kiwanis, in their annual fundraiser. The Kiwanis hold a pancake breakfast at the Waukesha County Fair to help fund youth organizations in the city of Waukesha.

Those that are interested may sign up here:
Please register before July 4th, as we need an accurate count of volunteers.

Volunteers are requested to perform an 1 hour shift, and scouts and adults will assist with carrying plates/drinks to tables, clearing tables, filling syrup containers, filling coffee, or offering more pancakes to those that are seated. 
Participants will also receive tickets to park and enter the fair, so you may enjoy the fair after your shift is complete.

Each year, our scouts do a great job, and enjoy helping out. It is also an event that the Kiwanis really appreciate the help at.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Matt Wagner or Eric Johnson.

4th of July Parade - 2018

posted Jul 22, 2018, 8:26 PM by Webmaster Pack30

This year we had 26 scouts and adults walk in the Waukesha 4th of July Parade. It was a great time to make scouting visible in our community and celebrate the birthday of the USA! Thanks to everyone that made it out to the parade, and to Mr. Johnson for coordinating the effort.

Highway Cleanup w/ Troop 4

posted May 29, 2018, 1:00 PM by Matt Wagner   [ updated May 29, 2018, 1:01 PM ]

Every year we have a volunteer opportunity with Boy Scout Troop 4 in cleaning up a portion of ST Paul Ave.  This is a good opportunity to get in an event for June. This year it will be Tuesday, May 29th, 2018 (it's the end of May, but we'll count it as a summertime activity). We will need some parent participation to assist in keeping the boys safe as the  den leaders already have a pack committee meeting to attend to tomorrow night. It is only about 1 hour long to complete our section.  Below is the information about the event.  Let Eric Johnson know if you as a parent can attend and help so that I will know how many parents we will have there. Thanks.

Please wear your uniform (neckerchiefs not necessary), so we are easily identifiable.

We're starting at 6 pm, so meet at ETC (1915 MacArthur Road, Suite 1 Waukesha, WI 53188) at the front doors a little before. 

The Pack will go North on the sidewalk/trail side (protected with a guard rail) from MacArthur to Harris Highland Rd. Usually an hour is about all it takes for that section.

That section is all on the sidewalk / multi-use trail. By county specifications, we don't do the median (grassy area in the middle of the road) and for that section there is only one side of the road (we don't do the bridge side with no sidewalk / east side of road). It's maybe 1/2 mile walking section (doubled for the return).

Garbage bags and vests will be provided; bring work gloves if you want them. (Though if someone has a high-visibility vest they are welcome to use their own -- we have a limited number.)

Summertime Activities

posted May 28, 2018, 9:15 PM by Matt Wagner

Wednesday, May 16th marked the last Pack meeting of the school year. This year we had 52 scouts earn their rank advancement badges at the meeting, which is our largest group yet. For those that did not, you have until June 1st to finish your requirements and let your den leader know, or mark it in Scoutbook.

We have several summertime activities planned for June, July and August. The latest pack calendar has the dates, or you could reference the Scoutbook calendar. If your scout attends at least one scouting event in each month (June, July and August), he or she is eligible for the Summertime Pack award. 

We look forward to seeing you for some of the events. If you can't make it, though, look for us at the Randall Open House in August, or at the Scout sign-up night on Sept. 13th.
