Sneak-A-Peek 2021 and Signing Up

Stop by and visit with some of the Pack leadership and Scouts on Tuesday, July 29th from 7:45 AM until 1:00 PM during the school’s Sneak-A-Peek. We’ll be located in the gym with all the other extra-curricular activities available. We are ready and willing to answer any questions you may have about Scouting, some highlights of the activities we do each year, and how to sign up to join the Pack. It’s a great time to consider us as you look at the clubs and organizations that are offered for our Mountain View students.

Be sure to come by our Sign-Up night as well on Aug 8th! We’ll be in the school cafeteria from 6:30pm – 8:00pm to answer all your questions and give you more info about all the great things you can get from Scouting.

You can also sign up for Scouts -> here <-

Pack Meeting

Crossover 2021

Our May Crossover Pack Meeting is where all of our Scouts cross over to their next rank. After this meeting, our Tigers are now Wolves, Wolves are now Bears, etc.

Congratulations to all of our Cub Scouts that were able to earn their ranks!

This also is the last meeting and activity for the 2021 school year and the end of one of the strangest years anyone can probably remember. Thank you to all the families that stuck with us through these trying times and helped make Scouting a safe and fun experience for everyone this year!

Spring Family Camp 2021

Scouts go camping rain or shine, that’s part of the learning experience of Scouting. Not every weekend is going to be perfect and this one was far from it. Folks got to find out the hard way whether their tents and other gear was waterproof or not.

The morning slog to all the events was pretty wet but we still had a great time shooting BB guns, sling shots and arrows, talking on a ham radio, building crafts and several other activities. Fortunately, it cleared up after lunch and we had a nice afternoon before we got another wave of rain right after dinner. Besides the fun of the activities, some of our Scouts learned they need to plan better when it’s going to rain and that’s a good thing to know how to do.

Blue & Gold Banquet 2021

The Blue & Gold Banquet is where we celebrate the birth of Scouting. This year’s celebration was at MacFarlane Park where we had box dinners and a variety of fun games for the Scouts.

We finished up the event with a marshmallow roast and a flag retirement ceremony.

Webelos Woods 2021

Webelos Woods is generally a spring campout organized by the Foothills District that gives the Webelos an opportunity to operate like a Scout Patrol and plan their own campout.

This year they made sandwiches for lunch, grilled burgers for dinner and had bacon for breakfast. The District made this a laid back event where our Scouts got to do their own thing which included an activity put together by Jenson which allowed the Webelos to earn one of their activity pins that they needed for their Webelos rank.

Den Activity

Providence Canyon 2020

Our Webelos Den put together a great trip and the first one since the COVID pandemic began. We visited Providence Canyon State Park just south of Columbus and had a great time hiking and camping at the park.

We got lucky with the weather, we didn’t have any rain and it was a pretty warm night for December. Everyone had a great time hiking up the streambed and into the canyons.

Backyard Scavenger Hunt

As we discussed in our last virtual Pack meeting, here’s a backyard scavenger hunt that everyone can have fun with. We’ll ask everyone at the next meeting how they did. Print this out and see how many things you can find!

A Scout is Trustworthy! This means we’re using the honor system! As items are spotted, they can be crossed off. All items must be found outside, hence the backyard part 🙂 If you find something really unique, take a picture, show everyone at the next meeting!

Sign-Up Events

This year is unlike any other but Pack 1714 is still here and looking forward to meeting new Scouts this year! Since we can’t have a traditional sign up night at the school, we will have two virtual sign up nights where you can ask questions, learn about Scouting and join our Pack.  Please share the information with anyone looking for adventure, great life skills, and outdoor fun.
