LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston Pack 16's Webelos Cub Scouts and their leaders and family members had a week of fun and adventure at Camp Winnebago Scout Reservation in Rockaway, NJ. The group spent the week learning some of the skills they will need to make a smooth transition to Boy Scouts next year. Although learning skills, morals and behaviors to help make the boys “Prepared for Life” was the focus, fun was also a priority and having a Pirate Theme at this year’s camp ensured there would be plenty of that.

The boys enjoyed all that a sleep-away camp can offer: Swimming, Fishing, Boating, Archery, BB Gun Shooting, Scout Craft, Nature Craft, STEM activities and singing around a campfire before Taps sends them to a much needed night's sleep. No Cub Scout camp experience would be complete without patriotic flag ceremonies and moments of reverence with grace before meals. 

Cub Scouts entering 4th grade are gearing up to earn their Webelos Rank. Webelos stands for "We'll Be Loyal Scouts." Scouts entering 5th grade work toward their Arrow of Light Award, the highest possible award in Cub Scouting and the only badge they can wear on their Boy Scout and Adult Leader uniforms. Cast Iron Chef (Camp Cooking), Stronger, Faster, Higher (Athletics) and Into the Wild (Naturalist) are just some of the Adventure Program activities offered to the Scouts. 

The Cub Scouts who experienced Camp Winnebago got a jumpstart on earning their next rank in a year guaranteed to be full of fun and adventure with Pack 16. Pack 16 is proud to have a long history of serving the boys in Livingston for 65 years. They enjoy a strong membership base with 85 scouts across age groups ranging from 1st to 5th grade. They are proud to boast a full staff of 18 well-trained experienced and enthusiastic leaders to ensure each child has a fulfilling experience. For more information, the pack invites the public to attend the Pack 16 Roundup Meeting on Sept. 3 at the SYLS Community Center from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m., or visit the website at

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
