Crabbing in Seabrook

Posted by Frank Benvenuto on August 10, 2016 in Show with Comments closed |

On August 6, Cub Scouts from Pack 678 got together in Seabrook for a fun evening of crabbing. Scouts learned how to crab along the Texas Gulf coast using nothing more than chicken drumsticks and string. They jumped and danced excitedly when they were able to pull one from the water. All the scouts were working on their Summertime Activity Award, which requires attending three summertime events scheduled by Pack 678.

The pack picnic, this past Saturday, July 23rd, was a great success!  The scouts enjoyed outdoor activities, such as, cooling off at the splash pad, eating delectable hot dogs, and racing their boats at the 2016 Rain Gutter Regatta.  There were winners and absolutely no losers!  Fun was had by all.


The next Summer event is CRABBING.  It is currently scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 6th.  Stay tuned for more details.

BALOO Training

Posted by Frank Benvenuto on February 22, 2016 in Show with Comments closed |
Parents and Den Leaders,
The Bay Area Council will be providing Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) Training on Saturday, March 5 at the First United Methodist Church on FM517. The last day to sign up is February 29. I want to encourage our parents to take this training. BSA will discuss everything from tents and sleeping bags to planning the campout and holding the campfire. This is a great opportunity for adults who are new to camping to learn how the BSA holds a campout. I also recommend it to all den leaders because of the emphasis on camping skills for rank requirements. Additionally, I want to emphasize that in order for the Pack to hold a campout, BSA requires that we have at least one adult leader who is Baloo-trained. So the more people who take the course, the more flexibility we have with campouts. The training costs $15. Here is a link to the BAC website with a link for registration:

Winter Campout @ Bay Area Park

Posted by Frank Benvenuto on February 21, 2016 in Show with Comments closed |

On Valentine’s Day weekend, 24 scouts from Pack 678 and their families attended the Winter Campout at Bay Area Park. I use the term “winter” lightly since it was in the 70s most of the weekend. Scouts who arrived Friday got to participate in a special night-time “alligator hunt” hike. Then on Saturday scouts got to work on their outdoor activity requirements toward rank advancement, the reason they were at the campout. After lunch, the whole Pack got involved in an epic game of Capture the Flag. Then it was time for geocaching and outdoor crafts. After a hearty silver turtle/foil dinner that was capped off by Dutch-oven cobbler, Cubmaster Doug Carey led the pack in the campfire program. Scouts brought skits and jokes while troop leaders brought cheers and games. It was a great weekend for getting outdoors and doing some “backyard camping.”
