Join Cub Scouts
When you’re a kid, fun comes first. Final exams, driver’s ed and summer jobs will arrive soon enough. Cub Scouts lets kids have fun while teaching them skills that will help them later on. From the thrill of shooting an arrow to learning how to transform a block of wood into a race car, Cub Scouts is one thrill after another. With a program expertly tailored to match each age in a young boy’s life, Cub Scouts learn that even when fun isn’t easy, it’s always an adventure. In Scouting, everything has a purpose. And it shows kids that doing their best is the most fun of all.
Scouts: You can earn your “Recruiter” patch by inviting a friend who joins scouts.
Cub Scout Pack 374 Family Campout
*** PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION CHANGE ***
Camp Branch, Loop C
We would like to apologize for the confusion regarding the campout this month. There have been several unforeseen issues with the locations causing a delay in communication. The location changed again today unfortunately as the Kelsey Short Camp was double booked.
Please remember, this is a family campout. This means our Cubs will be, primarily, under the supervision of their parents or guardians the majority of the time. We will have some activities in the afternoon for the boys to help keep them busy. Boys will need to travel to the campout in their uniforms as with all scout outings. Be sure to remember their neckerchief and slide as they will be part of the crossing over ceremony. Boys are encouraged to change upon arrival and we recommend they do not eat in their uniforms so they will be presentable for the campfire ceremony.
The Pack will be providing dinner but we do ask you bring your own utensils, cups and plates. We will have a very limited supply on hand. However, lunch will not be provided by the Pack, so please plan accordingly. Families will need to bring their own camping gear, sunscreen and bug repellant. We also recommend you bring lawn chairs as there will not be enough seating available to accommodate everyone.
Unlike previous years, this campsite is equipped with fire rings at each location. However fires in these rings will not be permitted. The central campfire for crossover will be the only fire allowed. You may arrive as early as 11:00 AM to set up your tents, but are welcome to show up at your convenience. If you choose not to camp, you may stay for the day and depart after the campfire. A $2.00 per camper donation is appreciated to help offset costs.
Below is a tentative agenda. Please note times may change due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
11:00 – 1:00 Scouts begin arriving and setting up camp
