2023 Cub Scout Winter Weekends at Heritage Reservation

Event Details

Get out of the house this winter at Heritage Reservation's Cub Scout Winter Weekends! Cub Scouts and their families are invited to join us for a weekend of fun and friends.

Packs attending for the full weekend will stay in our Potomac Homes overlooking Lake Courage. Cafeteria style meals are provided in our dining area at Pathfinder Lodge. Come with your personal gear and enjoy winter with its exciting program features. Choose from several weekends - each of which is open to Scouts from any Pack. Winter Weekends at Heritage Reservation are a tremendous opportunity for Cub Scouts and their families to enjoy a fun-filled day in the great outdoors while experiencing the beauty of winter.
