Flintlocks Craft Kits—a Great Den or Pack Meetings Project
If you are looking for a project for your Scouts to do in a den or pack meeting, consider assembling Flintlocks Craft Kits. These kits provide a great opportunity for the Scouts to follow directions, work with a few simple hand tools and build a useful, functional and attractive wood project such as a bird houses, handy boxes, handy benches, etc.
Examples of assembled items and a full list of the craft kits are in stock and available for purchase in our Cedar Knolls and Mountainside Scout Shops.
Flintlocks is a group of retired & semi-retired men who volunteer their time, talents and skills to support the Boy Scouts of America, Patriots’ Path Council. They meet every Thursday at the Flintlocks building at Winnebago Scout Reservation where they produce the kits and have a complete wood working shop. Their time is devoted to maintaining, constructing and improving the facilities of the Scout camps owned and operated by the Patriots’ Path Council. As they say, the Flintlocks build everything from buildings to birdhouses.
All the revenue derived from the kit sales is used to purchase construction materials to maintain the camps. 100% of the revenue from Flintlock Craft Kit sales is retained for use within the Patriots’ Path Council.
The Flintlocks is a 501 c 3 non-profit charitable organization and if you are interested in joining this volunteer group, please contact Bob Pysher (908) 578-8860 or by e-mail at RPYSH@Verizon.net.
