The Two Mountain District Winter Fun Day is coming to Kirby Park Saturday January 18th 2014 from Noon until 3:00pm. Winter Fun Day is open to all cub scouts and their families. Boy Scouts and their leaders from troops and Packs from Avoca to Dallas and Pittston to Mountain Top will be running all the events.
Last year over 600 cubs and their families attended Winter Fun Day, All the cubs will receive a new 2014 winter fun day patch, lunch, games and fun, fun, fun. For 2014 we added three stations some of the day’s program stations will contain:
  •  Sling Shot Target Paint Ball
  •  Runner Sled Race
  •  Dodge-Ball – parents against cubs and siblings
  •  Freeze Tag
  •  Wilkes-Bare FD Smoke House
  •  “Ice” Fishing
  •  Disabilities Awareness Maze
  •  Tug of War
  •  Hula Hoop Archery
  •  Snow Shoe Challenge
  •  Wax Candle Making - Paraffin wax , a string with a knot, a song and some fun will make this one unforgettable station for the cubs and their families.
  •  A Catapult – yes a catapult.
Families can participate in each section for as long as they want and go in any order.
There will be a separate Webelos scout program for the boys in 4th and 5th grade. They will have their annual contest, learning outdoor skills and adventure. The Webelos Scouts will be told that a major winter storm is rapidly approaching and that it will be necessary to stop here and build an emergency survival site. They will be given point based on the survival material they have, the ability to build a proper shelter, and clean up the area using the Leave no Trace method.
To participate call the scout office at 207-1227 or visit the website at www.nepabsa.org.http://www.nepabsa.org.
