Pack 1980 Scouts on Jockey Hollow Historical Hike

Posted on Jul 26 2014 - 6:21pm

Pack 1980 Cub Scouts and fmaily memebers hiked the Cub Scout Jockey Hollow Historical Trail at Morristown National Historical Park this week.  Scouts started the afternoon with a video of the 1779-1780 winter encampment at Jockey Hollow and then toured the Wick house and garden area.  after the scouts embarked on an ~5 mile hike.  The soldier's and officer's huts were the biggest highlight of the hike.  Scouts also enjoyed picking berries along the way - although we learned at the start of the hike that the Chinese wineberries or wineberry raspberries are actually an invasive species.  Scouts are pictured at the Wick House, inside a Soldier's Hut, and outside an Officer's Hut.

Webelos Scout Michael Barckholtz and Wolf Scout Zachary Barckholtz attended Cub Advenure Resident Camp at Musser Scout Reservation.  They survived three nights camping in storms, but had fun during day time activities.  Michael enjoyed kayaking, bb gun shooting, and archery the most.  Zachary's favorite activities included slingshots, paddle boating, and water carnival.

Although we may have just completed our Pack 1980 year, it is not too soon to look ahead to planning for next year.  We hope more of our parents will consider volunteering some of their time and talent to Pack 1980 because we have roles beyond den leader that need to be filled.  

  • Do you like to plan celebrations?  Pack 1980 is looking for someone to help coordinate the Blue & Gold Banquet in February!
  • Do you like crafts?  Pack 1980 could use help to lead crafts at a couple pack meetings during the year, including the Family Campout!
  • Do you have an idea that would make for a great pack activity?  Pack 1980 would love to have a parent volunteer coordinate one of our pack meetings!

For more information on how you can help Pack 1980, please e-mail Cindy Barckholtz.
