Pease Park Ecology and History Hike June 2 this Saturday

Posted on May 30 2018 - 2:49pm

We have planned an exciting and educational ecology and historical hike of Pease Park.  The date is now set for this June 2 Saturday at 9 AM.  Please go to the calendar event to signup, so we have an idea of how many attendees to expect.  Austin’s Pease Park is in the heart of the city and in our own Pack 20 backyard!  The park boasts some of the most ecologically diverse forests in all Austin, along with a rich history.  We will have a guided hike through the park including the history, ecology, visit the new Pease Park “straw houses”, and (water levels permitting), we will even get into the creek bed to see the diverse flora and fauna within the creek.    We will end with a short clean-up of the park, so that we “leave this world a little better than we found it” , in the tradition of Scouting.  Mak Ghangurde is our organizer for the pack, and you can contact him directly with any questions at mak.ghangurde@microfocus.com.   Please remember to bring a water bottle, and also to wear sunscreen and a hat!

Capitol Area Council Summer Events

Posted on May 29 2018 - 11:27pm

Capitol Area Council sponsors multiple summer events that you can sign up for on your own or with a group from your den.  There are summer day camps at multiple locations around central Texas.  There is a STEAM camp at Anderson High School multiple weeks in June and July, and this year's theme is caves.  There is an overnight Cub Resident camp (2 nights/3days) at Cubworld in Bastrop, with 2 sessions offered in June;  Pack 20 has 2 adults attending for the first session June 22-24, but registration for this first weekend is now full according to the council signup.  However, there are still spots available for the second session June 29-Jul 1, and you can register for this one on your own.  The camp will give scouts an opportunity to earn badges specific to their rank as well as use the Cubworld facilities including the pool.  For the Cub Resident Camp, you need to sign up through the council web link below;  there is a signup on the Pack 20 website for both weekends, to keep track of who else plans to attend.  Please see below links for more information. 

Mega-Training BALOO, Archery, and/or BB gun training THIS WEEKEND

Posted on May 15 2018 - 9:54pm

For the pack to continue to enjoy overnight campouts, BSA requires us to have in attendance at least one adult who is Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) trained.  The next BALOO mega-training is this month May 18-19 at the Lost Pines Scout Reservation.  We encourage any parent who enjoys the campouts (and you do not have to be a den leader), especially from the younger scout ranks, to complete this necessary item.  For the older scouts (Bear and Webelos), there is additional training for overnight camping called Outdoor leader skills for Webelos Leaders (OWL) training, dates TBA.  Also, if we plan to do BB guns and archery at Cub World again, we need individuals with specific training through the scouting program to run the ranges, and next date offered is May 19 (BB guns 8-12, archery 1-4).  Let us know if you can help with this, and you can signup by going to the following link:  http://www.bsacac.org/training_events.php
