  1. Is the USS Little Rock sleepover a Council sponsored event? If so, I believe that affords you some protection in the event of problems. Has your Pack Committee discussed the event and shared all the details, including the sleeping arrangements, with the parents? If some are uncomfortable they can opt not to attend. Our Pack has done sleepovers on battleships (USS Massachusetts, sleeping like the sailors in hammocks), museums (Boston Museum of Science and Plymouth Plantation, both very popular, folks bed down all over the floors of the exhibit halls), and cabins.

  2. I was a Boy Scout for a couple of years back in the late 60s. My only memories are of summer camp (Adams Pond, New Hampshire), some good points, some bad points, and a camping trip that my Dad and younger brother attended (neither were scouts).

I decided to take the plunge and sign on. Ive been Assistant Cubmaster for Pack 22 here in Braintree since May 2007. My oldest son joined as a Wolf and I had been involved with the Pack as a helpful parent prior to the Assistant Cubmaster role. My oldest is a Webelos II now and will cross over this May but my other son will be coming in as a Tiger at that point (hes excited about it). Im planning to be his Den Leader as well
