Pack Event for July - Crabbing Friday 7/7 @ 6pm – 7:30pm at First Landing


We will meet at the Bay Store on the ocean/bay side at 5:45pm on Friday afternoon, July 7th.  A Ranger will talk a little bit about the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab and then escort us down to the bay.  Pack will supply string and bait and hand sanitizer.  Feel free to bring your own things like nets, sunscreen, extra string or bait, chairs, snacks, drinks and anything else you want.  This event always turns into “a fun beach visit”.


Crabbing is ‘catch and release’ and parking is $5.


Hang around until 8pm for a bonfire and s’mores after crabbing.  Bug spray is recommended.


Class B’s (and bathing suits!)

Pack Event for August – Rain Gutter Regatta – Saturday TBD @ 1pm in the Hut


This is our annual model boat race where each scout builds a catamaran-style boat and we converge in the Hut, and each den races against their fellow scouts by blowing their boat (through a straw) down the “rain gutter” track we’ll have set up.  It’s a ton of fun and one of the most coveted events we do!


Racing will start at 1:00pm @ the Hut one Saturday in August TBD and the new catamaran-type boat kits MUST be used – the single-hull models from years past can’t be used.  Race set-up begins at 12:00pm for those who can help.


We will have water and lemonade on hand so if you want to bring a light snack to share, feel free to.


Class B's and bring a towel.
