The Blast Into Scouting Event is a fun day of events for the whole family.  New Cub Scouts will have the opportunity to assemble (if they haven't already) the rockets they received at their Join Scouting night. Current Cubs are invited to attend and participate in all of the events for a small registration fee. (Current Scouts and siblings will also make and launch a rocket.  It will be different than the rocket the new cubs received)   (Units can purchase the rockets all new Scouts will receive through your local Scout Shop or at Scoutstuff.org) Events include:  Shooting BB Guns, Archery, Slingshots, Sports, Scout Skills, Nature and more!

Boys that joined Scouting May 1, 2017- September 30, 2017 can attend for FREE by redeeming the coupon they will receive at their recruitment night. Brothers and sisters can attend for $6 each and participate in many activities.  (Those allowed by BSA guidelines)  Please register online here so we can have enough supplies.

Current Cub Scouts and families can attend by registering online here and paying the $12 for Cub Scouts (parents are free). Brothers and sisters can attend for $6 each and participate in many activities.  (Those allowed by BSA guidelines-  They will not be able to do the shooting events)  Please register online here so we can have enough supplies. Fee includes all activities, insurance, facility fee, and more.

The walk-in registration fee the day of the event is $15 for Cubs (free parents) and $10 each for additional non scout youth.  This fee is only for current registered Cubs that walk-in to the event. (and younger brothers or sisters)  Cubs joining this fall can walk-in free and participate.  More information to come.

(New Scouts) We encourage you to assemble your rockets at home before you come to these events, but if you cannot, we will have a rocket building station at each event to assist you.

Please bring an empty 2 liter soda bottle for the rocket launch station.
