Events

***Some events below are managed and planned by GSLAC, our council, and therefore you will need to register with them in order to participate.  All efforts are made to get correct details from GSLAC, but please refer to the event description itself (via the included link) rather than this website for accuracy.  Also, be aware that most GSLAC events require pre-registration (and payment), and do not normally allow for walk-in participants the same day of the event.***

Den Meetings: October 16, 2018 at 7:00 PM, Location - South Middle School Cafeteria

Each den (boys of the same age and rank) will have a meeting on the third Tuesday of the month.  Dens will cover requirements for rank advancement and electives. Tigers and Lions attend their den meetings with their adult partners; but Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts can attend den meetings on their own.

While the meetings include games and other activities that are fun for the boys, program delivery is the main goal. Boys participate in activities and work on projects that are related to an adventure and that help them learn the skills they need to progress in rank. The boys also prepare to do their part in the monthly pack meeting.
