Another year, another popcorn sales campaign!

All else remains the same from last years campaign. Show & Sell kicks off our campaign, where we sell popcorn from various stalls around town followed by the Take Order campaign where individual scouts sell to their family, friends and neighbors. The more you sell the cooler the prizes!!!!!

Take Orders

Can begin any time Until November 5, 2018

Door-to-door selling

Parent work locations

Friends and Family

Ordering online can be done from each scout’s Campmaster Account so that he gets the credit for the sales.


First up is the Show and Sell campaign.  The online sign-up schedule can be found here:  Popcorn Signup Schedule. Note that this document is read-only.  Here's the procedure for signing up for a slot.
  • Look at the spreadsheet to see what slots are still available.
  • Send email (to popcorn@wiltonpack22.com) specifying the slot that you want (place and date/time) along with the name(s) of the scout(s) who will work that slot.
  • The Kernel (or one of his lieutenants) will reply to your email with confirmation and then update the online spreadsheet.

Keep an eye out for more communication from the Kernel over the coming weeks.

Deer Lake Summer Resident Camp 2016

posted May 26, 2016, 8:23 AM by Admin User   [ updated Aug 12, 2018, 10:11 AM ]

Pack 22 encourage all to attend the Cub Scout Summer Resident Camp at Deer Lake in Killingworth, CT (~1 hours drive from Wilton).

Deer Lake is a beautiful, farm-like facility about an hour's drive from Wilton specifically designed with the young camper in mind.  You will camp in comfortable open-sided lean-tos in private camping areas and enjoy shower blocks and a central dining hall.  So it's certainly not bare-bones camping by any means!  Quite comfortable actually, the perfect place for an introduction to the great outdoors for cub scouts.

There are several sessions available at the camp (from mid July through mid August).

Session 1: Fri, Jul 15 -> Sun, Jul 7 (2 nights stay) - Family Weekend
Session 2: Mon, Jul 18 -> Thu, Jul 21 (3 nights stay) - Webelos only
Session 3: Sat, Jul 23 -> Tue, Jul 26 (3 nights stay) - Cub Scouts and Webelos
Session 4: Thu, Jul 28 -> Sun, Jul 31 (3 nights stay) - Cub Scouts and Webelos
Session 5: Mon, Aug 1 -> Thu, Aug 4 (3 nights stay) - Webelos only

The first of these is the "Family Weekend" and is open to any and all members of a family that has at least one cub scout.  All family members (siblings, parents, etc.) are welcome.  Sessions 2 & 5 are restricted to only Webelos and sessions 3 & 4 are open to any ranks (Tiger - Webelos).

Deer Lake isn't just about camping though, it's about doing things.  It's an especially great camp for rising Webelos (current Bears) and Webelos 1s since it offers the chance to complete several of the core Webelos requirements including Engineer and Outdoorsman.  Attending the camp will give your Webelos scout a real head start on their way to earning the Arrow of Light.  The camp isn't just for Webelos and Bears though, any cub scout can attend and enjoy the activities.  We have had Tigers and Wolves in attendance in previous years and they have had a great time.

Activities include:
  • Archery, BB Gun shooting
  • Sports
  • Swimming, boating, fishing, hiking (day/night)
  • Arts & crafts
  • Earning activity badges & belt loops
  • Campfires, skits, songs, fun & games
Every year there is an overarching theme for the camp and this time it's all about Super Heroes.  So expect lots of costumes and fun!

Full details can be found on the CT Yankee Council's website here:  https://www.ctyankee.org/camping/residentcamp/cubscout

Deer Lake Summer Resident Camp 2014

Killingworth, CT (~1 hours drive from Wilton)
Fri, Jul 25 -> Sun, Jul 27 (2 nights stay)

Pack 22 encourage all to attend the Cub Scout Summer Resident Camp at Deer Lake in Killingworth, CT.  There are several sessions available at the camp (from mid July through mid August) but we have a critical mass of pack families interested in the July 25 - 27 session and so that is the one that we are going to officially support as a pack.  That is one of the "Family Weekend" sessions offered at Deer Lake and is open to any and all members of a family that has at least one cub scout.  All family members are welcome.  From what I understand, this session is also the one that Pack 17 are targeting so hopefully we will have a big Wilton turnout this year.

Deer Lake is a beautiful, farm-like facility about an hour's drive from Wilton specifically designed with the young camper in mind.  You will camp in comfortable open-sided lean-tos in private camping areas and enjoy shower blocks and a central dining hall.  So it's certainly not bare-bones camping by any means!  Quite comfortable actually, the perfect place for an introduction to the great outdoors for cub scouts.

Every year there is an overarching theme for the camp and this time it's all about the Wild West.  So expect lots of costumes and cowboy fun!

Costs:

$160 for each cub scout
$60 for each adult or child 13 or over
$100 for each additional child (6-12 years old)
$30 for each additional child (4-5 years old)
No charge for children 3 and under

Be sure to check out the attached brochures and also this video that presents the camp:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4a-YoLN7Sw

If you are interested in attending then please reply to alan@alandavies.org.  I need to get applications in by the end of May and places do fill up so the sooner you apply the better.

Games for Soldiers

posted Feb 6, 2014, 12:15 PM by Admin User

The organization mentioned at the January Pack Meeting is called "Games for Soldiers". The person running it, Catherine Taber, is a notable person in the Star Wars circle as she does the voice acting for the character Padmé Amidala in several Star Wars video games and the animated TV show "Star Wars: The Clone Wars". She is very patriotic and kind hearted for running this drive. Here is a link to the site if you would like to read more about it: http://gamesforsoldiers.com/operation_gfs.html

She collects console games (Wii, Xbox 360, PS3), games for current hand-held systems, PC games, movies (DVD/Blu-Ray), and comic books for overseas soldiers. Right now, that means ground troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, but also Naval personnel based on ships stationed in those regions.

Donations should be in lightly used or new condition.
