Our next campout is right around the corner: April 22 – 23 at Naish Scout Reservation. This campout is free for scouts and their families to thank you for all of the hard work you’ve done this year! We’d also like to invite families interested in scouting–if your Cub has a classmate or teammate that you’d like to join us in scouting, invite him and his family to come along. People are welcome to come for the day only or to spend the night with the pack. This is a great opportunity to earn your Recruiter patch!
A .pdf flyer with the details is available here: April Campout Flyer
Be sure to RSVP to Mrs. Gloeb or your den leader no later than April 17, 2017.
We hope to see you there!!

Help Our Pack With Its Annual Service Project
Every fall, we rake leaves as a service project. Scouts and their parents are needed for at least one 2-hour shift. We are raking leaves for members of our charter organization, Valley View United Methodist, who have had recent injuries or if their health limits their ability. We will be raking leaves from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, November 19, 2016.
