Cub Scout Pack 1776

Aug 20: Rocket Day!

Calling all adventurous young scouts and their families!

Join us for an exhilarating Rocket Day, the thrilling kick-off event of the cub scout calendar! Witness the wonder in your cub scout's eyes as they learn to build their very own rockets from scratch, tapping into their creativity and problem-solving skills. The anticipation mounts as the countdown begins, and together, we'll watch these mini-engineering marvels soar across the open field, filling the air with laughter and excitement.

Not only is Rocket Day an absolute blast, but it's also an excellent opportunity to meet new friends and welcome fresh faces into our scouting community.

Don't miss this chance for fun-filled family bonding and an unforgettable day of high-flying adventure!
