Back to School Splash Pad Event

Posted on Jun 19 2018 - 9:54am

What better way to celebrate the end of summer than cooling off from the Texas heat? The pack has reserved a pavilion at the Williamson County Quarry Splash Pad. If you have never been there before it is just east of Parmer off 1431.

Caraway Tree Watering

Posted on Jun 1 2018 - 8:25am

The trees are thirsty! Please take the time to quench their thirst it only takes 30-45 minutes to do.

Caraway does not have any irrigation and with the heat index our tress desperately need your help.

Watering them only takes 30-45 minutes to do. The time listed is only a suggestion; you can pick your own time during the weekend that best fits your schedule; the trees don't mind. If you get rained out gladly forward your volunteer time to another weekend.

Scouts will enjoy outdoor fun while learning about one of their favorite topics: space!

  • There are 13 different camp locations. You an register for any location, though most people from Pack 162 tend to register for the Unity Church of the Hills or Old Settlers Park.
  • Available for all elementary school-aged boys and girls, whether or not they are a Scout
  • All camps feature traditional outdoor activities and games that emphasize learning, teamwork, and physical fitness
  • Scout parents are encouraged to attend with Scouts from their pack to help satisfy "walking Den Leader" requirements. The Pack is required to have a certain number of volunteers in order for scouts to attend. Volunteers for the week will receive a free T-shirt.
  • Non-Scout parents are encouraged to attend with their child (even if just for one day) to learn what Scouting can offer their family year-round

There is also information about resident camp here: http://www.bsacac.org/my_files/cub_residence_camp_flyer_v2.pdf

These camps are super fun, and an amazing value.

Pack 162 Training Opportunities: BALOO and Range-Master

Posted on May 1 2018 - 1:09pm

Hello Pack 162 Parents,

Welcome back from our amazing Cub World Campout. If your kids were like mine, they had a great weekend, and a tough time waking up this morning. One of the highlights for many of the scouts was the Archery Range.

In order for our Pack to have campouts and participate in the Archery Range, BSA requires that we have volunteers who are trained to lead those types of events. The great news is that we have training opportunities coming up for both campout and range-master training on the weekend of May 18-May 19. However, BSA can only provide the training opportunities - we need YOU to sign up to become certified to enable our Pack to keep doing these awesome activities.
