Den and Pack Events:  

Each scout will meet usually once every week or two with their den. A den is a group of 6-10 boys or girls (dens are single-gender) who work together on activities tailored to their age. Each den decides where and when it meets.  

All of the dens also get together into a pack once per month. All pack-wide events are listed and updated on the pack's calendar. Within Scoutbook, you can electronically subscribe to the calendar, which will automatically keep things up to date.

Pinewood Derby

 There were many fantastic designs that pushed the limits of speed, style, and design at this years Pinewood Derby. The Scouts did a fantastic job with their cars, and learned a lot along the way!

This years Pinewood Derby was a great success thanks to the hard work of both the Scouts and their Parents.
