Bears Say Thanks

The Bears made thank you certificates to show their appreciation to all the adults who helped with their carnival games. Rather than pick who gets which one from which boy, we had the idea to scan them to the web site for all the adult "assistants" that lent a hand. THANKS!

Bears Sam, Ben, Carter, Ethan, Finley, Brady, David, Luca, Daniel, and Alex attended Polar Camp at Camp Philippo in Cannon Falls on 1-24-16. They had a great time playing "Predators and Prey," "Mushroom Ball, "Gaga Ball," "Capture the Chicken," and tubing/tube sledding. In this photo Brady, Finley, and Ethan are building Lego pinewood derby cars at another activity.

Congrats, Bears!

The Bears took a "One Mile Hike" as part of the "Fur, Feathers, and Ferns" Adventure on 12-1-15. They looked for signs of animal activity including tracks, rub marks on trees, and "scat." Some of each were found and we had fun.

The boys started the Bear Necessities unit on Tue., 10-21-15, and discussed a camp-out meal, learned about the construction of a tent, and made barometers out of a glass jar, a balloon, a straw, and a toothpick.

The Bear Den completed the "Bear Claws" adventure on their 9-22 and 9-29-15 Den Meetings, learning about knives, sharpening, and doing soap carvings. Most of the group earned their Whittling Chips as well. Congrats, boys! And, finally, a big welcome to new Bear Den members David, Sam, and Ben!

Bears Bryce, Alex, Daniel, Zach, Finley, and Ethan attended Camp Akela the weekend of June 19th-21st this summer and had a great time. They made toolboxes, whittled and enjoyed a fun weekend with family and friends.

The Bear Den was lucky enough to get their own private tour of the WSP police station, thanks to Sarah Kirkwood. The scouts enjoyed being locked in a holding cell, trying to fool the fingerprint-scan lock on the Evidence Room door, climbing in and out of a cruiser, and learning about what it takes to be a police officer (hard work, dedication and a steady head). They couldn't talk anyone into zapping them with a TASER though. Maybe next year, boys!
