We’re working hard to teach our Scouts the value of serving their community. We had a work day today with one of our own Pack families, that is still rebuilding after Hurricane Harvey.
The Scouts and their families spent the morning emptying the house of boxes and household items, so that work can continue throughout the house. You can see more pictures on our Facebook Page.
“A Scout is obedient. A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobeying them.”

A few pics from our cook-out at Brazos Bend prior to visiting the George Observatory. These are from us teaching the kids to make “Bread on a Stick”. You can see the full-res pics on our Facebook Page.
As of June 1st we can now register Lion Scouts. Lion Scouting is an intro into Scouting, with a reduced set of commitments – time, meeting and financial.
Lion Scouts only attend 1-2 meetings a month. Their t-shirt and hat (no full uniform) is only $25. And the combined program materials for Scouts and Parents is only $10.
If you know of any Kindergarten families that may be interested in Scouting, please have them contact us.
