Some of the best things about Cub Scouting are the activities you get to do: camping, hiking, racing model cars, going on field trips, or doing projects that help your hometown and the people who live there. Cub Scouting means “doing.”
Cub Scout Camping!
Learn to live in the outdoors. Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world. And oh yes… smores over the fire…. what kid wouldn’t love it?
Outings and Field Trips
Cub Scouts have many kinds of outdoor fun, such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation activities, and outdoor games. Locally we have visited the Bedford Fire Station, the Bedford Police Station, The Old Bedford School, and even greeted to honor returning soldiers.
Blue and Gold Banquets
In February, when Scouting celebrates its “birthday,” packs across the country hold blue and gold banquets. In nearly all packs, the banquet is a very special event. During this time, fathers and son participate in a themed cake baking contest.
Cub Scout Derbies
Race a model car, sailboat, or miniature rocket in a Cub Scout Pinewood Derby, Raingutter Regatta, or Space Derby.
Doing service projects is one way for Cub Scouts to keep their promise “to help other people.” Some of our recent projects include food drives, garbage clean ups, Christmas caroling, and planting flowers for the community.
District and Pack Adventure Days
Our Pack is part of the Longhorn Council and Road Runner districts. A few times a year we participate in 1-Day to 5-Day Day Camps where the hundreds to thousands of scouter gather for outdoor fun adventure. Some the activities include: BB gun safety & shooting, archery, hiking, swimming, and outdoor skills, as well as Crafts, Games, and Advancement.
