Our cub scouts are currently building rockets that we expect will be launched several hundred feet into the air.  All of the rockets have streamers to ensure their safe return.  Please join us and your children can help us retrieve the rockets once they return to earth.  Bring your assembled rocket kit and the pack will provide the rocket motor and all launch equipment.

Not a Cub Scout yet?

This is a great opportunity to come see what it’s all about. Bring your own rocket to launch or just come out to watch the show.  Let Lauren Buckalew (Committee Chair) or Clif Beam (Cubmaster) know you are coming. ANY INTERESTED BOYS OR GIRLS AGES K-4 ARE INVITED!

Want to invite a friend?

This is a great opportunity for any family interested in learning more about Cub Scouts to come out and see what Pack 110 is all about. Please feel free to bring them along and send them our Rocket Launch Flyer for more information. Any scout that brings a friend will get a special prize!

Pack 110 is very excited for our final camping overnight of the scouting year at French Creek State Park! Once an industrial complex for the fledgling United States of America, today French Creek State Park is an oasis for people and wildlife. Straddling the Schuylkill Highlands, the 7,730-acre park is the largest block of contiguous forest between Washington D.C. and New York City. French Creek has more than 30 miles of trails for hiking and biking and 2 lakes for fishing and boating. It is beautiful!
