  • PB Buzz hold Christmas Store for Pine Bluffs Elementary

    Elizabeth Zerck|Dec 24, 2020

    For several years the PB Buzz has hosted a Christmas store for the students of Pine Bluffs Elementary. In the past we have collected donations of gently used items for the students to choose from, but this year with the concerns of COVID-19 we focused on monetary donations and the support we receive from our community has always been absolutely fantastic! Students shop for their parents and siblings. After they have shopped for their items, members of the PB Buzz help to wrap the gifts while...

    Elizabeth Zerck|Mar 19, 2020

    There is no higher priority than the safety of our Scouts, Scouting families, volunteers and communities. Due to an abundance of caution and guidance from Longs Peak Council BSA, all pack activities and events between now and through April 6th are either cancelled or postponed. These are temporary measures in place so we can help limit the spread of the disease. With the rapidly escalating health concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the decision to cancel or postpone our events was not made lightly. We are...

    With the end of the school year fast approaching our Scouts are busy finishing up Adventures to earn their ranks. This past weekend the Cub Scouts went on a hike and collected trash from different areas of our community. A big part of Cub Scouts involves introducing boys and girls to the fun and adventure of spending time outdoors. And if you're going to spend time outdoors, you're going to want the right gear. The Cub Scout Six Essentials is a list of a half-dozen items every Cub Scout should...

  • A Scouting Minute...Blue and Gold

    Elizabeth Zerck|Feb 27, 2020

    Blue and Gold Banquets are a tradition in Cub Scout Packs. They are a celebration of the anniversary of the founding of the BSA on February 8, 1910, and therefore usually take place on the February pack meeting. It is a time for us to celebrate the pack's anniversary, and a time for the pack to recognize the adult leaders, businesses and members of the community who make Scouting exciting . This year our Cub Scouts chose the theme, games, for our Blue and Gold. The Webelo's den even created...

    This last sunday we celebrated Scout Sunday. Our Pack helped to greet everyone as they came for service. It was really nice to see how much the church members appreciated the scouts presence. As people would filter through the door our scouts would say good morning and shake everyones hand. During service Pastor Dan recognized the scouts and the adult volunteers. I attached an article below from Scouting Magazine that tells a little about Scout Sunday. When it comes to the Scout Law, last is...

    Every September and January the Unit Leaders, parents and Cub Scouts of Pack 109 have a meeting that is devoted to planning the upcoming 6 months. And every year we plan several service projects. Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise "to help other people." While a Scout should do their best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While the Cub Scouts are giving service, they are learning to work together...

    As part of teaching our Scouts the values of the Scout Oath and Law, we have events and activities that help encourage, build and strengthen these ideas and values. We need everyone’s help and assistance to make these activities a success. Cub Scouts is different than Boy Scouts. In Boy Scouts the responsibility of planning, preparing, conducting and carrying out activities and events is on the Scouts themselves. This is a progression of building Scouts into leaders for the future. In Cub Scouts the responsibilities of planning, preparing, c...
