Lock-In Recap

Planning And Fun All In One

Nativity Lutheran Church hosted our Lock-In on February 23rd.  We brainstormed events and ate pizza.  We played wacky card games, hide-and-seek and had funny conversations over snacks.  Who could resist singing-along during Eleanor's Pitch Perfect mini-marathon?  Nice job on that 4:30am pancake breakfast, ladies!  We were happy to have Alexandrea Danzy and J.D. Robinson as our guests.  We hope to see them again soon!  

Scouting the Zoo

Showcase the Venturing program to the public.

Last year our Crew camped two nights near the Aviary.  We lured Scouts to our booth with “Giant Jenga & Giant Connect Four” and then promoted Crew 999 (and Camp Ammon) with picture boards and literature.  A trophy for 2nd Place Best in Show was rewarded our efforts.  We need your help to do even better this year!

Please commit to attending by our May 5th crew meeting.  A larger group will allow us to participate in more of the activities like the LumberScout, Legendary Fitness, and Team Challenge Course Competitions. Friday night’s program has an ice cream social!  There are free Zoo Train and Zoomobile Rides on Saturday after the public goes home!

Dates: May 31-June 2, 2019

Drop-Off: 6:00pm Friday.  Pick-Up: 8:30am Sunday.

Location: Milwaukee County Zoo, 10001 West Bluemound Road, Milwaukee, WI 53226.  Check-in/out at Gate A with BSA staff.

Costs will vary depending on how our Scouts participate:

$9.50 Zoo Admission if you don’t have a zoo pass; plus $9.00 if you will be camping ($5 if coming just for the day); plus $8.00 for meals; plus $1 for a patch.  Additionally, $12.00 parking for all vehicles remaining in the zoo.  No vehicle fee for drop-offs.

To lessen some of these expenses Crew 999 will work to minimize the number of overnight cars and we’ll make a menu that provides more food for fewer dollars.  You can save money if you have access to a zoo pass and you get dropped off by a parent or a carpool.  Provide your input at our April 7th crew meeting!

Scouting for Food

A favorite community service project for many.

The 30th annual Scouting for Food campaign partners with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and other local food pantries who will distribute the food we collect to those in need at no cost.  To date, over 6 million pounds of food has been collected for the hungry in our council.

On March 16th, Crew 999 will help man the collection site at the West Allis Fire Station #2 on S. 67th Place between Becher Street & Rogers Street from 8:00am to 12:00pm.


The market is closed for maintenance.  Remember, if you are bringing a guest with you in the hopes of signing them up, have them download a permission slip and get their parents signature.

Nativity’s Spaghetti Dinner

Serve the church that sponsors our crew.

Nativity Church has started planning their annual spaghetti dinner.  Our Crew needs your help to set tables, cook & serve spaghetti and do clean up the kitchen afterward.  Date TBD, 4:00pm to …

(It’s on our calendar for April; but could be moved to May.)
