The Pack Day Camp Coordinators will then take all the fun and excitement back to their packs and help prepare the leaders and parents to successfully spend time June 9th- 11th with their Wolves/Bears and June 12th-14th with their Webelo’s, a Parent/Tiger day is planned for New Tigers/and their Parents on June 13th.

We look forward to seeing someone from each Pack.

Pinewood Derby Cars

pic 1162Many of our Packs are planning their pinewood derby races and the boys are excited to design and build them. To many of the parents this can be very overwhelming as they don’t have all the sophisticated tools to cut them out. So how can you as the pack help your boys from Tigers to Webelos if your pack doesn’t have the resources?

How about having a car cut-out night. Where you ask? Check out Home Depot. They have the tools and know how, they do all kinds of demonstrations through out the year and like to help support their communities. So that they can best help each boy, it is best if  each Pack  work with the Home Depot Manager, Wayne. Stop in and talk to him about a date and time that will work for your Pack.
