Model Rocket Campout


3…..2……1….BLAST OFF WITH PACK 108: 

On April 15th Pack 108 will be hosting a Campout in Lancaster SC for all families to attend. There is no cost for this campout and the boys will have the ability (weather dependent) to build Estes Model Rockets and launch them. Rocket kits will be provided by the Pack and handed out at the March Pinewood Derby. Scouts can either build them at home with a parent or Den leaders may incorporate the building of the rockets into a Den meeting. On this Campout the Pack will host a Dinner for all families to enjoy (Burgers and Hot Dogs) with follow on Campfire and S’mores. This location has access to fishing at a pond so bring your poles and tackle box- Catch and Release only! Those Scouts that are early risers, keep your eyes peeled for Deer that graze in the field while the sun come up! Fishing and Swimming in the Catawba River that abuts the property is prohibited. 

Pack 108 is going to be setting up camp in the large field so there is plenty of space for everyone- but there are no electricity/water hookups. Please plan and pack accordingly for a more primitive style campout. Campout Arrival time is early Saturday AM with Rocket Launching to occur late morning or just after lunch. Sunday Morning, we ask that everyone packs up in the morning, police call the sites for trash, and depart by late morning/ before lunch.  Details and Fliers will be presented at the February Pack Meeting and rockets will be given out at the Pinewood Derby!
