Pack 32 Snowshoeing 2/14 (EVENT FULL / NO MORE RSVPS)

posted Feb 5, 2021, 7:36 PM by Verona Pack 32 Cub Scouts   [ updated Feb 12, 2021, 5:56 AM ]


Hello, Pack 32 Families!  

The Pack invites all of our members to join us as we take advantage the recent snow and head out for our next adventure, a snowshoeing day trip on Sunday, February 14, 1:30 p.m. (time subject to change)  at Jockey Hollow in Morristown.

This trip will be a great chance for your cub to enjoy the snow and experience the outdoors in a different way!  Members of Verona Boy Scout Troop 2 will also be joining us for this excursion to give the cubs a preview of the fun that awaits them once they advance to the next level in scouting.    

We will be renting snowshoes for the pack in advance of the trip, or you may provide your own snowshoes.  Each rental is $18 and all cub scouts must be accompanied by an adult.  

Response deadline is noon on Monday, 2/8 via email to Maria Conte at Robandmariaconte@outlook.com**THIS EVENT IS FULL, NO MORE RSVPs CAN BE ACCEPTED**

Payment for snowshoe rental can be made via Cheddar Up, by clicking the following link: https://my.cheddarup.com/c/verona-pack-32-credit-card-payments

MORE INFORMATION:

We will be meeting at the Jockey Hollow Visitor's Center.  Simply enter this name into your GPS and you should find directions, however, the address is Tempe Wick Rd, Morristown, NJ 07960.  The Center has a parking lot.

We will be meeting there at 1:30 on Sunday and we'll be distributing the snowshoes to folks once there.  (No other special footwear is required for wearing snowshoes--just your regular winter boots will be fine!)  I'm estimating we'll be out for about an hour to an hour-and-a-half. 

Third, in the event of weather that makes it unsafe to drive to Morristown, we will try to do the outing at a local park or try to reschedule the event for a different day.  We won't be refunded the cost of the snowshoe rentals but can get a raincheck. 

Finally, a few pieces of advice:  Please dress in layers.  While we don't want anyone to be cold, overheating can also be a problem when someone is bundled up and doing a lot of moving.  Some say it's a good idea to start off a bit chilly but if that's not appealing, the best alternative is to have layers that can be peeled off or added back on as needed.    

Last, don't forget water and some snacks.  Most people say snowshoeing takes more effort than simply hiking, so your scouts (or you) might need the energy boost and will most definitely be grateful for the hydration.

***EACH SCOUT MUST BRING A PERMISSION SLIP, WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THIS POST***
