Peoria Area Cachers, in cooperation with the Peoria Park District, has arranged a cleanup event at the old Salvation Army Greenway Camp on Sunday, April 26th at 1pm. We are invited to come help as well. We’ll pick up trash, clean up brush, etc. The location is the end of Poplet Hollow Rd, Peoria (N 40° 48.000 W 089° 35.165). If you’re a geocacher, the event cache page is at http://coord.info/GC5QG73
The East Peoria Beautification Commission has asked for our help picking up trash for their Clean Sweep citywide cleanup on the morning of Saturday, May 2nd. I’ll share more details as they become available, but they will provide the materials we need. I need a headcount of who is attending by Monday, April 27th.
Our family event for May is going to be a Cricket game. We played a couple of years ago at our summer campout, and the boys really enjoyed it. Also, at this event, we’ll have our “Cubby Buck Store.” Have your scout bring his cubby bucks (which were distributed at pack meetings) to purchase toys and other prizes. Mark your calendar for May 3rd at 1:30pm.
As you’re working on planning your summer activities, consider the cub scout “Adventure Camp” day camps. The cost is only $80 for the week if you register by May 1st. Activities include BB guns, archery, fishing, crafts, and games as well as plenty of outdoor instruction and earning achievements toward rank advancement and belt loops. They require adult chaperones for each group of scouts, so if you’re interested in attending, let me know, and I can put you in touch with other pack members to coordinate. Forms, brochures, schedules, etc. are available at http://goo.gl/EZrBRI
The requirements for each rank are changing for next year. The new program cuts out a lot of the less exciting activities and looks a lot more fun! Invite your friends to join us! Read more at http://goo.gl/appGT5
