Scouting for Food

posted Oct 23, 2017, 9:32 AM by Pack 91


Door hanger dr
op off will be Saturday, November 4th, and the pickup day for the food (and dropping the food at the drop sites) will be November 11th

If you’re unfamiliar with Scouting for Food, here’s some information on it from the Bryan on Scouting blog: As Scouts, we know how fortunate we are to have a warm meal every night — whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And we know that not everyone is so lucky.

That’s the genesis of Scouting for Food, the annual food-collection drive run by our local council. It’s another reminder to our local communities that Scouts are here, doing good turns.


Scouting for Food takes place on two consecutive weekends. On the first weekend, Scouts distribute information (door hangers) to let their neighbors know about the drive. On the second, Scouts revisit those houses to pick up bags full of canned food, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, juice and other nonperishable items.
Please join us in making this noble cause as successful as it can be!!!!
Note that at least one adventure for every rank requires a service project and this is one of the ones that will help fulfill that requirement.

Welcome new Scouts and families to the start of the 2017-2018 Scouting Adventure!

If you're new to Cub Scouts this year or just looking to find out more information, please join us on Monday, August 28th at 6pm in the Wolf Lake Elementary Cafeteria. We'll be there to answer any questions and let the kids have some fun. If you have a question and don't want to wait, please use our Contact form and we'll get back to you.

If you haven't already signed up and are looking for the applications, they are now available online at: https://my.bsa.us/083paa3091mb
It will show Pack 3091 - Northwest Orange County Approv Assoc 


Answers to some common questions:
  • Open to boys in first through 5th grade. For those age 11+ or 6th grade+ please visit the Boy Scout Troop page at http://FLTroop22.org
  • We meet weekly (except for holidays) and have optional camp outs and events on various weekends throughout the year. Our pack calendar is available via the link on the left.
  • Cub Scouting is a FAMILY friendly program. With few exceptions, brothers & sisters are welcome to come on camping trips and all the activities we do. 
  • Yes we do have an annual camping trip at Disney's Fort Wilderness.
  • How much does it cost? The registration with Boy Scouts of America is pro-rated based on what month you join. To register in August, the cost is $30 which will cover the BSA registration fee as well as the pack registration and cost of a pack t-shirt.  We also have annual pack dues to cover the annual registration and our activities such as the Pinewood Derby, Blue & Gold Celebration, and more.  We try to keep this as low as possible through FUNd-raising and by participating in the annual popcorn sale Scouts are able to reduce or eliminate their annual dues.

This year there are three different Summer Camp options to choose from. 

Cub Scout Day Camp-Bug Hunters
Cub Scout Day Camp is open to all Cub Scouts (grades 1-5) There are multiple camps run around the council. The one in our Apopka Shores District is located in Oakland this year. There is also another camp not far in Eustis that is great. You can see the entire list of camps as well as dates & registration at http://cflscouting.org/cubactivities/cub-scout-day-camp/

For Webelos Scouts (Scouts entering 4th or 5th grade) we highly recommend going to Webelos Day Camp.

There are several Webelos Day Camps, the closest being 2W in Eustis. Information and registration can be found on the same page: http://cflscouting.org/cubactivities/cub-scout-day-camp/
