    Click Here for more info.

    On November 5, 2016, Troop 52 invites local Cub Scouts and their families to the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance (1760 Unionville-Wawaset Road) in West Chester for a day of learning, earning and fun! This year we are expecting up to 300 total guests to attend.

    The schedule includes many perennial favorites such as woodworking projects, carving, knot-tying, camping preparation, fire safety, map reading, geology, hiking and games.

    Parents and leaders are welcome to stay (a must for Lion and Tiger Cubs). Lunch is served to all guests and volunteers on the beautiful BRCA hilltop. The day will conclude with a campfire, songs, skits, and awards – with all scouts participating.

    This yearly occasion is highly anticipated by not just Cubs, but the Boy Scouts as well. It gives them the opportunity to practice their leadership skills which are part of the core teachings of the BSA. And Cub Scouts get an introduction to one of their local Troops that they may choose to join when they crossover in the fifth grade.

Youth Protection: it’s a basic, foundational requirement for Scouting to achieve its mission to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. 

One of the most effective ways to get on board is to take Youth Protection Training (YPT) during October. Please go to our Youth Protection Page to learn more!
