June is almost over and July approaches. We've got the following events planned for the boys in July.
Westerville 4th of July Independence Day Parade
Saturday, July 3rd, Noon
Yes, the 4th of July parade is on the 3rd. But so is Red, White, and Boom! so, I think we'll manage.
This year we're doing bikes again. So, bring your patriotically decorated bike & helmet to our parade entry! The staging area for the parade is in the parking lot of the Brooksedge Office Park, which is South of West Schrock Road on Brooksedge Blvd. Arrive no later than 12:30pm as the parade starts at 1:00pm sharp. Parade officials there will direct you to our location – just let them know you are with Pack 770. Wear class A uniforms. The parade from start to finish takes about 3 hours.
Family Camping at the Alum Creek Group Camp Site
Friday July 16 - Sunday July 8
Check in 3:00pm Friday or later. Checkout by 1:00pm on Sunday. Wear Class B uniforms and bring Class A uniforms. If you are the first one there, the combination to the gate lock can be obtained form the Campground Welcome Center. The Welcome Center and Group Campsite can be found on the park map.
IMPORTANT: Bring potable water, as there is none provided at the campsite.
2010 Arrowhead District Day Camp
Tuesday July 27 - Friday July 30
This year’s theme is shoot something and get wet every day!
Day camp is 9:00am - 4:00pm each day. Scouts will participate in individual and team sports, games, crafts, explore nature and work on achievements, electives and badges. The deadline to register with the pack has expired so if you're going, you should know it already. But, it's not to late if you aren't signed up with the pack. You can still register yourself at the council's website. Completed Medical Forms will be needed for each attendee. Turn them in when you arrive at camp on Tuesday.
Shining Light Across America
Saturday July 31
5:00pm - 10:00pm at Huntington Ballpark. Free and open to the public! Enjoy a special Friends & Family welcome! Arrangements to group together will be sent prior to the event. Wear Class A uniforms. The Bounce Houses will open at 5pm, along with a live band. This will be followed by a presentation by Eric Weihenmayer, the only blind person the climb the tallest peaks of all seven continents. The presentation will be followed by a special satellite transmission of the Centennial Celebration Show from the 100th Anniversary National Scout Jamboree in Fort AP Hill, Virginia. This will be the first time in the history of the Boy Scouts of America that the entire national Scouting community will be brought together at one time – to celebrate our 100th Anniversary!

That's all for July. Coming in August it looks like we have a Metro Park Outing, Family Camping at Slate Run, and possible a trip the Air Force Museum in Dayton.
