Pack 1863 Annual
Fall Family Camp Out
Saturday October 6
Sunday October 7
Our 2018 Fall Family Camp Out will be held at Camp Snyder in Haymarket, Va. This is a local scout camp and includes bathroom facilities and activity areas. We have reserved large sites to accommodate our pack and families. Siblings are welcome! Remember: Talk to a leader if you need help setting up.
For this event we will be located at campsites 8 & 9.

On March 9, we will be participating in the annual Friends of Scouting campaign. This is a very important part of our commitment to Scouting because it helps support all the great things Scouting provides to our youth. A scouting volunteer representative will be here to explain the importance of the program and collect donation pledges. Each unit is asked to help carry a little bit of the load and many participants make light work. We understand family budgets vary but ask that you invest in our youth as much as is comfortable. The attached brochure has some suggested levels and explains more about the program and its importance.
So why is your donation important? Friends of Scouting is the second largest source of funds for our local council programs. If we fall short, our programs and camps are left without the resources to keep them well maintained and our programs strong. There is no “someone else” to take care of this. Consider this: For more than 100 years, families before ours gave their time and resources to Scouting and the program we enjoy today is available because they did. Let’s make sure that the new Cubs and Scouts have great Scout camps to go to. Let’s make sure that the families yet to come have the opportunities our youth have.
I am asking you to join us by making your pledge to keeping Scouting well-funded and strong. The attached PDF pledge card can be mailed back, or parents can use the NCAC online pledge system:
Important – if you use the online system, please send a copy of their receipt to me and the SullyDistBSA.FOS@gmail.com so that we can record your pledge and arrange the recognition items appropriate.

10:00 a.m. (plan to be there at least 3 hours)
Our annual Blue and Gold event will be this Friday night (March 10). This is the Cub Scouts “birthday party” and annual celebration of Cub Scouts. This year we will also be hosting our Arrow of Light and Crossing Over Ceremonies the same night. These ceremonies will recognize our 5th grade Webelo II scouts and celebrate their experience and hard work in the Cub Scouts. They can then do a Crossing Over ceremony which symbolizes their promotion from Cub Scouts and the beginning of their adventures as Boy Scouts. Please join us in celebrating Cub Scouts and our Webelos. Thank you to the parents who have supported the boys and the pack throughout their journey!
Congratulations Webelo II scouts! Pack 1863 wishes you a fun and exciting adventure wherever it takes you!
