The Webelos-o-ree is an overnight camping event at Camp Snyder in Haymarket, VA designed to introduce Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts and their parents to the Scouts BSA program. The weekend is filled with fun and skills activities led by Goose Creek District troops. It begins with an opening ceremony Saturday morning and ends Sunday morning. The Saturday evening campfire is a special highlight!
We will meet at the Ashburn Farm Windmill Pond.
A few things to note:
-Everyone should bring their own poles, bait, hooks, etc.
-There are no rules for type of bait, etc.
-We won’t be competing. Just fishing fun.
- There are bathrooms but not close by the pond (they are by the athletic fields).
-This is a class B uniform event.
If you can only come for part of the event, that it ok!
If you have any questions, please contact Tom Filippi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone interested in learning more about Pack 1154 and Cub Scouting is welcome to participate in this one hour program. Potential scouts will participate in hands on activities, while their parents/guardians will spend time with the pack leaders in understanding what makes Cub Scouting great! We will discuss the program, its philosophy and the number of fun activities your child will experience throughout the year into next summer!
Join us at Ida Lee Park from 10 AM - 12 PM to launch model rockets! We will be launching in the field near the soccer and other athletic fields.
Each Scout should bring a model rocket kit that is built and ready to fly. Rocket kits are available at local craft and hobby stores. We recommend kits labeled “Ready to Fly,” “Almost Ready to Fly,” or “Easy to Assemble” as they typically require minimal skill to assemble.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Fun for all ages, Summit Ropes is divided into a children’s course (4-6 years) and an adult course (7+ years). Both courses offer challenging activities that engage participants’ mind and body. Guests wear a full-body climbing harness and utilize a smart belay system to ensure safety at all times on the course.
Open to all Cub Scouts, siblings, and friends
Cost $12 per participant (to be paid at the event) -- Covers the cost for all of the materials (except the soda bottle) needed to build the rockets and a patch. Patch will be given at the event.
Pack Hike Reminder and Information
Essentials to bring on the pack hike:
Layers of clothing for the weather (currently partly cloudy with high of 66)
Long lightweight pants (protect from bugs, poison ivy or general scrapes and scratches from walking in the woods)
Hiking boots or trail shoes that can get dirty with comfortable socks (it might be muddy in spots)
Bug spray that can be effective on clothes is recommended (with deet) to protect from ticks.
Water bottle: filled and large enough to last the hike.
Trail food: easy to carry and eat while walking. No big mess or lots of trash, as we have to carry everything with us.
Sun protection: sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater and a hat (not a lot of sun in the woods, but there will be a few sunny spots along the way)
For those who want to drop off, please make certain there is an adult attending from your den. Dropping off is OK, but need to make certain everyone is accounted for and part of a hiking group.
We will be doing a 3.5 to 4 mile hike with a 2.0 mile shorter loop back for anyone that can't handle the longer hike. That said, my 5 year old did an extended version of this hike (4.7 miles) in the fall without a problem.

We are set for two driving tours of 12 people of the Loudoun County Landfill on Monday, April 1st at 9:30 am. Please RSVP below so we can prepare for who will be attending and if we need to schedule an additional tour van.
The Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility is a popular site for scout groups, schools, and others. Visit us and learn how garbage is disposed in a landfill, watch 40-ton tractors smash trash, and get quizzed on recycling.
Save time, register online and drop off your car before the Saturday races and lines.
Most Cub Scouts celebrate Scouting Anniversary Week in February with a "birthday party" called the blue and gold banquet. In nearly all packs, the blue and gold banquet is the highlight of the year. It brings families together for an evening of fun and cheer. It's often the pack meeting for February.
