Den 4

Den meeting next week plus registration information

Hello ARROW Scouts! We picked up two new scouts during school registrations – please help me welcome Annabelle Upshaw and Everett Garcia.  Both attend Brown Elementary here in Whitehouse! Our “kickoff” meeting will be next Tuesday, September 26, at 6:30 pm in the back fellowship hall at WUMC. Parents – you might browse the Aquanaut and Fix-It electives to see if your scout finished enough requirements to earn those electives. You can do a Google search for Webelos/Arrow of Light electives to see the requirements. We will start the year with some “Outdoorsman” acheivment work – fire building, outdoor cooking, Emergency plans and a review of our Outdoor Code. See YOU next Tuesday!!   Returning Scout Families, We are so excited to start Den Meetings…

Flag pickup this weekend!

Gigi will be busy with Webelos camp, so I am coordinating flag pickup for our AOLs. The following routes/neighborhoods need to be covered. I’m honestly not sure who usually does what, so let me know which neighborhood you can pick up (if you do not have a vehicle and would like to still help with flag pickup, let me know what route and we can pair you with another family):   B4 Windridge Estates: Remington Park: Cumberland Estates: Lupton Canyon Springs: Whittaker B5 Sleepy Hollow, Cambridge Village & Jeff Davis: B6 Greenwood Village, Graemont, Brookhollow, Brixworth: B8 Joye Lane, Brookwood, Beam:   I will send updates as these get covered. Thanks!   Nicole


Hi team! I am rushing trying to get to the airport for a 6pm flight to Florida BUT wanted to send out a reminder that camp registration is closing soon!  I have finally (today) started getting communications from the Scout office and have Kathy Prince’s notes from last year as well. I’ll be sending out a packing list and suggestions for camp survival sometime next week from Florida so bear with me.  I believe we have Jason Beaton, me, Jacquelyn Lackey from the Webelos group, Patrick Lupton and Eric Nielson that will be camping some or several nights – brave souls! Right now Gregory, Michael, Harrison, Rachael, Ayden, Viana, Evie and Madoc are registered to attend, but we have room for more! The forms are…

Webelos Camp next Month

Good morning Den 4!! Our scouts have the opportunity to attend Webelos Camp this summer. Webelos Camp is an introduction to long term summer camp. This year’s camp is 1 PM Thursday, July 6th through 12 PM Saturday, July 8th at Camp Pirtle. Parents are not required to attend, but are welcome. Mrs. Gigi, Mr. Jason, and Mr. Lupton will be there for sure. Thanks to our flag fundraiser, the pack is able to cover most of the cost for camp. It’s only $50 for scouts and $25 for adults. Register at All meals are provided. There is a very full schedule of events. Including shooting sports, Lakefront, swimming and other adventures. Please contact Mr. Jason at (903) 530-9378 with any questions.  

FLAGS need to go out for Memorial Day this weekend + Reminder – no more scheduled Den Meetings!

Hey folks, all families responsible for flags need to get their flags out this weekend. The WUMC flag room will be open this Saturday from 8:30 – 10:30 for folks to pick up their flags and they want all flags out by this coming Monday, May 22nd so they are out a week in advance of Memorial Day. I believe all the routes are correct online – be sure to take a peek to see if you have any new flags – Nicole might be able to help with that information.  Please let me know if your family might need some help getting your flags out by next Monday.  Someone could get you in to pick up flags tonight during Scouts as well.  Keep in…
