Save these Dates for Scouting Adventure!

We're planning some great pack outings and camp experiences for the coming months.  These are all optional (and extra fee) activities that supplement our den and pack meetings.  Keep an eye on your email's inbox and our pack website.  I'll send more info as each event date gets closer.

For now, mark your calendars. Stay tuned for more info!

Monster Jam - Saturday, Dec. 5

Yes, Ethan... This one's for you!  We're going to Monster Jam at the Metrodome!

Monster Jam trucks face off in at least two different forms of competition - racing and freestyle. Racing is traditional bracket racing, where the first truck to cross the finish line with the least number of penalties is the winner. The freestyle competition allows the trucks time on an open floor to show off their shills as they finesse the huge machines in a jaw dropping display of punishing stunts and amazing tricks.

Science Museum Overnight Camp-In - January 25-26

Imagine a campground filled with a giant movie screen, high-tech exhibits, extraordinary science learning opportunities, a live theatre performance, great food, and maybe even the chance to sleep next to a dinosaur. Sound thrilling?

The Science Museum of Minnesota's Overnight Camp-In Program has provided a fun and welcoming environment that encourages science through exploration since 1986. Join us this season and become immersed in the excitement and wonder of science, while investigating the museum's exhibit halls, watching a live science demonstration, and viewing the museum's current Omnitheater film. Participants also attend a fifty minute "Explore Science" workshop, where they are engaged in hands-on science activities facilitated by professional Science Museum instructors. But the fun and learning doesn't stop there. Added to this, is the magic of spending the night in the Science Museum's extraordinary exhibit halls!

Paying for camp: Scouts can pay for their camp experiences with their popcorn & wreath fundraising "Scout Accounts".  The Pack Committee has determined that these fundraising dollars should be reserved to send kids to camp, not other outings. Camperships may also be available to scouts, depending on the activity. 

Paying for outings: These are optional and generally require out-of-pocket advance payments.
