Welcome to Pack 312, Apex NC!

Pack 312 is the oldest Pack in the Apex/Cary area which means that we’ve been having fun longer than most people have been alive!  Pack 312 is one of the only Packs in the Apex/Cary area chartered by a civic organization and the Lions are one of the most active charity and service organizations in the area. We often coordinate with them and their other chartered organization, Troop 209 - Apex—the oldest Boy Scout Troop in the Apex/Cary area. From September to May we meet as a Pack on the first Tuesday of the month and the Dens meet the other weeks to work with their Den leaders, Denners, and parents on their individual advancement requirements. The Pack also does a number of family outings like our Fall and Spring campouts, monthly Pack Hikes and the “Big Trip” in June/July where we camp overnight on the Battleship Wisconsin or Sleep with the Sharks at Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach. The individual dens also sometimes do “Get out of the Scout hut” outings to places like local fire stations, the Carolina Tiger Preserve, the Durham Museum of Life and Science, and the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center to provide local flavor to their requirements and experiences.

Yours in Scouting,

Great Pack Meeting Tonight

Hey Pack 312!

I just wanted to say thanks to all the (formerly) Web 1 Scouts and the three (formerly) amazing Den 4 Den Leaders.  It was really cool to see all of the things our upcoming Scouts will get to experience some day soon when they hit Web 1.  Also for those you who thought you saw me lose a relay race to an 8 year old girl that was a trick of the light. It looked like I collapsed after one push up and the Tiger Den had to drag me back to the Scout Hut.  But really I was just laying face down in the dirt with my arms splayed out because I was trying to illustrate the Sloth Yoga pose for the Scouts.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, Pack 312!  Hope everyone is having a nice, relaxing day.

Also Happy Birthday to Den Leader Stephen Dodge who turned 93 last week!  So next time you see him give him well-enuciated, very loud "Happy Birthday"!   You can find out more about Den Leader Dodge and his life in his soon-to-be-released autobiography / musical / Lifetime mini-series "I Was Cool in 1973 -- A Modern Man's Quest to Bring Back Disco".

Hello Den 4!
 
I hope everyone is enjoying the sun today albeit a little windy and chilly.  Attached is the den meeting plan and study guide from last week’s den meeting which shows what we covered.  

Calling all Camping Lovers

Hi Pack 312,

Some of the adults in the Pack are planning to register in September for BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) training when it becomes available in September 2018.  Please let me know if you are interested and I will add you to the To Be Notified list.  Training is a few web-based courses and then one-overnight (usually a Friday or Saturday night).  Note: A Pack camping trip always requires at least one BALOO-trained leader attending and I think we are down to 1 in the Pack currently.

A Few Announcements (including Medical Forms)

Hi Pack 312,

A couple of quick announcements:

1) The Pack meeting will be moved back by one week (due to Spring break).  The Web 1s will be showing us some of the advanced skills they learned this year and also we will be doing Web 1 Den Advancements.
