Spring Break Rocket Camp

Cubmaster Deb is working on something for over Spring Break…

The campout will be happening on the second week of spring break beginning on Friday night March 26th and continuing onto Saturday morning with an in-person meeting at St. Ignatius from 10am-2pm and a movie that night. It will conclude with a Scout’s Own on the morning of Sunday the 28th.

Please let me know what you would like to see, what you enjoyed from the last campout, or any awesome ideas that you have! hilterbrand4@outlook.com or pdxpack351@gmail.com

Please send me pictures of you enjoying some Rocket Camp activities and we will enjoy a slide show as a part of our closing ceremonies!

Friday March 26, 2021: Please set up your campsite (outside if you like, but under your dining room table or in your room in a tent is fine, too) and be ready to craft! We will be meeting to create our rockets to launch during the in person meeting Saturday morning!
