Hello Pack 505 Families, It is that time of year where we start planning our kids summer activities. Cub Scouts offers a few wonderful programs that you might want to consider for your child. Twilight Camp (June 1-5, 2020; 6 - 9 pm) For Scouts going into 2nd to 5th grade, you can drop off at Twilight Camp. Cub Scouts going into first grade (our current Lions) will need an adult partner. Adults, please consider volunteering to help with this camp. Volunteers will need to take a training class and have current youth protection. Register here: http://twin-bayou.shac.org/twilight-camp Scouts @ HMNS (various dates) The Houston Museum of Natural Science offers a program for our Scouts. You register through the online box office for the museum, or in person.
