Hiking Opportunities

We have a couple of great hikes planned this month. Up first, is a 4.7-mile hike at the Millbrook South Forest Preserve. Our second hike is a 5-mile activity along the VL Gilman Trail in Sugar Grove, joining with Troop 71 and Troop 50 for a group hike!

Memorial Day Services

We have been invited to join with the American Legion and Troop 71 on Monday, May 30th, to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. A service will be held at the Veterans Memorial on US-34 at 10:15am, followed by a parade march to Plano Cemetery for a final ceremony.

Juneteenth History Presentation

We have been asked to return to Emily G Johns School on June 19th to present the history of Juneteenth to the citizens of Plano.

Summer Resident Camp at Camp Rokilio

The next payment due date for participants that are headed to Camp Rokilio from June 27-29, 2022, is on Monday, April 4th. Youth need to make a $50 payment and adults need to make a $40 payment. The final balance is due on May 2nd.

Independence Day Parade

We will be marching in the Plano Independence Day Parade on July 3, 2022, at 1pm. More details to follow.

Raingutter Regatta Race

Our Raingutter Regatta Race will be July 16th. We are still finalizing a location for the race, so please pay attention to our website and Scoutbook for an announcement! This is an activity for your Official Scout Uniform (“Class A”). Build kits will be distributed at the May Pack Graduation and additional kits can be purchased from the Scout Shops.

Webelos Resident Camp at the Rainbow Scout Reservation

Our older Scouts (entering 5th grade in the fall), can experience the Scouting program at a new level through the Webelos Resident Camp program. Get ready for a 4-day, 3-night overnight camping experience full of thrilling activities and awesome open programming. Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts can complete dozens of advancements and awards in the beautiful woods of Rainbow Scout Reservation in Morris, IL.

Exhilarating campfires, excellent staff, and endless fun can be expected when at camp. Resident camp is a great way to keep youth interested in the Scouting program and provides a good preview into the exciting world of Scouts BSA!

All Scouts are required to attend resident camp with a parent for the entire duration of camp.

Summer Day Camp at the Yorkville American Legion

Three Fires Council's Wild West Day Camp is at the Yorkville American Legion is from July 25-29, 2022. This is the closest location to our pack. Day Camp is an activity-based adventure for your Scout (and siblings) to enjoy. The emphasis is NOT on advancements, but on having fun and fellowship with your fellow Cub Scouts. Day Camp is recommended for Tigers, Wolves, and Bears. Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts should consider Summer Resident Camp instead.
