continued In July, the troop plans to attend Camp Wakpominee in Fort Ann.
North Creek Cub Scouts
North Creek Cub Scout Pack 36 is led by scoutmaster Kate Hartley and is part of the Wakpominee District of the Twin Rivers Council. She is assisted by Paul LoGuercio.
There are 20 scouts in North Creek Cub Scout Pack 36, with members from North Creek, Newcomb, Minerva and the town of Chester.
The Cub Scouts recently participated in the Pinewood Derby. They made rockets in the spring of 2012 and plan on holding a Raingutter Regatta race this spring. In the fall, they participated in a waterfalls and geocaching hike.
“Up behind the Ski Bowl, there’s six or seven geocaches, doing the Schaefer Trail and then you loop over to the Rabbit Pond Trail,” Hartley said. “It’s a beautiful loop. It’s one of the very new trails that Steve Ovitt mapped and finished.”
The Cub Scouts are planning a skating trip, water park trip and camping trip. Last year’s camping trip was a memorable one.
“We ended up hiking to Crane Mountain just in time for a huge thunderstorm to come through,” Hartley said. “So we didn’t make it to the summit. We made it up to Crane Pond and then came down the other way. But that was a very exciting day for sure. I’m sure the boys will never forget it, nor will the den leaders.”
Hartley is always looking for adults to get involved in the pack.
Long Lake Boy Scouts
