Rocket Launch

Pack 845 - July Summertime Pack Activity

Rocket into scouting....

Whether you have dreams of rocketing to the moon like Distinguished Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong or simply enjoy the thrill of watching lift-off, nearly everyone can agree that rockets are pretty awesome.

With that idea in mind one of our July Activities will be a rocket launch.

Summertime Activity Award

The goal of the Summertime activity award is to encourage a pack to be active when school is out for the summer, by doing one activity per month in June, July, and August.

This event is the first event in July that can be counted towards the award. Your son does not need to attend every event in July to qualify for the award. If he attends Cub Camp that also counts towards the award.
