Due to numerous requests, we have arranged a group oceanside campout at Myrtle Beach State Park. There will be plenty of opportunity for swimming, fishing, surfing, shelling, birding, crabbing, and more. Bring your tent and enjoy a weekend camping by the beach! This is limited to the first eight families, so sign up early. Cost is $35 per family / tent for both nights (Saturday & Sunday). Click here to register.

Scout Skating Night

Oops!  There's one more fun and exiting event planned by the Skakori District this summer!  Pack 438 has rescheduled their Ice Skating for August 12th.

This will be held at the Orange County Sportsplex (101 Meadowlands Dr, Hillsborough, NC 27278) on Tuesday, August 12th from 5:45pm to 7:15pm.  Cost is $6.50 for adults, $5.50 for children 12 and under (this includes free skate rental).  This is a great opportunity for your Scout to work on his Ice Skating Belt Loop.  Please wear your Pack B tee shirts so Scouts will recognize each other, as this is also public skate time.

If you are thinking to introduce a friend to the world of Scouting, this would be a great time to bring him along!

Skywatching Sesson at Jordan Lake

If you missed the AWESOME Astronomy Scout Night last night, join us for the Skywatching Session at Jordan Lake this weekend.  On Saturday night (weather permitting), Morehead Planetarium will host a skywatching night from 9pm to 11pm at the Ebenezer site of Jordan Lake.  This event is free, no registration required, and they will provide telescopes powerful enough to see the Moon, Mars, and Saturn, plus numerous constellations.  We've also heard a rumor that a "flyby" of the ISS will be visible from 10:01pm to 10:08pm.  You won't want to miss this!
