New Scout Skills Day information

Crossing over? Join us!

Join us with your AOL Cub Scout for an Invitational

(Highway 70/Glenwood side).

Drop by any time!  Use the Contact form  to let us know. Use the comments box to let us know when you're coming, the Pack you're currently part of, and your scout's name.  We will reach out to you before hand to confirm.

The shelter doesn't show up specifically on any of the maps; it's down at the end of Umstead Pkwy (the highway 70 side entrance), in what's shown as the picnic area. Here is a map of Umstead to show where it is. https://files.nc.gov/ncparks/maps-and-brochures/william-umstead-park-map.pdf

Day activities for Webelos/AOL scouts to complete requirements 2, 4, 5, 6 of "Scouting Adventure", and promote Troop 28 to scouts nearing crossover.  Activities to be run by scouts include: hiking, knots, knife safety, games (including application of scout skills), and preparation of lunch/dinner.  

Requirement: With your Webelos den leader, parent, or guardian, participate in a troop’s campout or other outdoor activity. Use the patrol method while on the outing.

    1. Show how to tie a square knot, two half hitches, and a taut-line hitch. Explain how each knot is used.
    2. Show the proper care of a rope by learning how to whip and fuse the ends of different kinds of rope.
