This upcoming Tuesday please be sure to arrive promptly at 7pm at the GBE cafeteria for our pack meeting. Following opening ceremonies, we will be embarking on the “Rocky Run Night Hike: A Survival Adventure for Lost Treasure”.

This exciting adventure will consist of a ~1 mile round trip hike on the Rock Run Trail with a series of surprise encounters that teach the scouts survival lessons as they quest for a lost treasure. This will support meeting a hiking badge requirement for many of the dens.

A couple important items to prepare:

  • Dress weather appropriate (layers to be outside for the majority of the time; mid to upper 50s)
  • Bring flashlights
  • Parents are welcome to join
