Spring Updates for Pack 910 and the year ahead

As spring approaches, it’s time we look to the next scouting year!

Spring is in the air!

This weekend, a group of scouts and parents from Pack 910 head to Carolina Beach for the first camping trip of the year! The weather is perfect and if you can’t join us this time, there are plenty of camping trips ahead this spring and summer!

Now is the time to prepare for the next scouting year.

While we’ve had some stop and go with scouting this past year, we do anticipate that we can build on the momentum that we’ve begun to generate and are very excited for the 2022-2023 scouting season! March is the time where Pack 910 “re-charters” with the Old Hickory Council and registers for the upcoming scouting year. Which means that we will collect dues from each family who plans to stay involved with Pack 910.

Expect to receive an invoice from our treasurer, Joe Juarez with a balance due in order for us to re-charter your scout.

Here is some of the value that is included when you re-charter with Pack 910:

  • A rank book, and all rank advancement
  • A customized, Pack 910 t-shirt (Class B uniform) for every scout and adult
  • Scout Life Magazine for each registered scout
  • All the costs associated with running the Pack, and the trips that Pack 910 offers
  • Camping and outings at discounted rates such as New River, Camp Raven Knob, Carolina Beach (this year), Patriot’s Point (2023), and more!
  • Camping and Outings at NO COST such as Sugar Valley, the Pinewood Derby and workshop with cars included, Hiddenite gem mining, and more!

Next year we are striving to further organize the calendar with a predictable schedule to Pack and Den meetings, while continuing to offer the outings, trips, and a few bonus events like the highly successful Pinewood Derby Workshop at the Mixxer this past Sunday!

Thank you for your patience as we continue to build on all the great work that Pack 910 has done and continues to do! We are glad to have you as part of the family.

As a reminder, there is no Pack meeting on March 6.

Pinewood Derby is March 12!

Pinewood Derby check-in will be Friday night, March 11, from 5:30 to 7 pm. During that time you’ll need to arrange to have your scout’s car delivered to the Church for check-in. Cars will be “impounded” at the Church overnight in preparation for the race. Max out that weight – but don’t go over 5 ounces!!

Volunteers needed!

We’re looking for a few helping hands on the afternoon of Friday, March 11, from approximately 3 to 5 pm. If you can help with that, can you let me know? We will be preparing for the Pinewood Derby event.

Camping with Pack 910!

Spring Into Scouting April 1 – 3
Spring into Scouting is a new camping experience this year at Camp Raven Knob. If you attended the Fall camping trip at Raven Knob, expect this to be a similar experience.
New River Camping May 20 – 22
Camping right on the New River Trail, this is a relaxed and very family friendly camping trip in Galax, VA. An easy drive from Winston, it’s a fun trip and we do an easy, slow-paced bike ride too.
Resident Camp June 15 – 18
Be sure to get Resident Camp at Raven Knob on your calendar now – your scout will create lasting memories and work on rank advancement too. If you can’t attend the whole time, you still have the option of attending some of the days.

Still have questions about Camping?

We would be glad to hear from you. We would also like to know how we can help make your camping experience successful and welcome suggestions. Please contact Lee Danhauer or me anytime.

In Scouting,
Daniel Lobb
