AOL Engineer Adventure

Last night, the Pack Patrol and Hawk Patrol celebrated Valentine’s Day by completing the final step in their Engineering elective adventure. The Scouts were to research designs to build a bridge out of popsicle sticks to withstand as much weight as it could. After doing their research and building their bridges at home, we all got together to have a little friendly competition to see who’s bridge could hold the most weight.

The Scouts did a fantastic job on their bridges and everyone was impressed with what they could hold.


Congratulations go out to Nick, who built the only bridge we were unable to break last night. It withstood a total of 305 pounds without cracking or wavering. Way to go!

… stay tuned to see how we finally break the strongest AOL bridge…

“Winter” Camp-In at TVSR

This past weekend, the Scouts of Pack 107 camped at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation in the Venture Lodge (or as we like to call it- the adVenture Lodge!).

Friday night campers played team work games and a few rousing games of UNO before going to bed.


Saturday was filled with lots of fun activities! We started with learning about the 5 basic Cub Scouting knots, and making paracord bracelets/keyrings for the Scouts to bring home with them. We then discussed being prepared for the outdoors, such as the 6 essentials, S-T-O-P, the buddy system, dressing for the outdoors, and weather preparedness. The Scouts played some games outside while lunch was being cooked.

Following lunch, we hiked 3.25 miles through the West side of Treasure Valley. We went to explore the infamous Sampson’s Pebble, which the Scouts were surprised to see just how large this “pebble” actually is.

After the hike, we played some Ga-Ga ball and took a tour of Cub Scout Adventure Camp, showing the Scouts all the different activities they can do while at summer camp.

After all the activity of the day, it was a good time to relax and watch a movie on the “big screen”. The Scouts chose to watch How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

When the movie was over, Friday night campers and Saturday visitors went home. Saturday night campers made foil packs for dinner. We made some awesome pictures and played UNO. The Scouts helped make cobbler for dessert and we watched The Lion King to settle down for bed.

Despite the cold night time temperatures outside, all of us were nice and toasty inside the adVenture Lodge. Overall it was a fun and exciting weekend, and Scouts are already looking forward to another camp-out at Treasure Valley. Thank you to all the families who joined us in this weekend adventure.

Arrow of Lights – Building a Better World

Tonight, our Arrow of Light Scouts had a special meeting that started with a visit from Mr. Padget. The Scouts learned about local town government and the role they play in our community. Afterwards, the Scouts discussed symbols that represent the USA and learned more about the flag.

Working together as a team, Scouts learned and demonstrated how to properly fold a flag.

The meeting was concluded learning about flag ceremonies and how to perform them.


Pack Hike @ Plummer’s Landing

This weekend, the Cub Scouts of Pack 107 took a 4 mile hike through the Blackstone Valley starting at Plummer’s Landing to close out our summer events.

We hiked along the canal to Goat Hill, and had the opportunity to see all kinds of wildlife including: a worm, a few frogs, a blue heron, 2 turtles, 3 snakes, a fish, butterflies, dragonflies, a couple bumblebees, and all kinds of plant life!

It was a great way to end summer vacation!

We look forward to the adventures planned for this new Scouting year.


Advancement Ceremony 2019

This past weekend on June 22nd, Pack 107 held it’s annual Advancement Ceremony & Camp-Out to end the 2018-2019 Scouting year. This was a time for all of our families to come together and celebrate all of the hard work our Scouts and their families have put in this year.


This year, we started a new advancement tradition, handing down neckerchiefs from rank to rank, building on the bond within our Scouting family. Additionally, all Scouts received new neckerchief slides- a green woggle. The green color chosen to represent the town of Grafton, where our Pack has made its roots for over forty years.

After recognizing the Scouts and their families for all of their hard work, we also recognized our leaders for all the dedication they put in to making this Pack run. They were awarded service stars, indicating the number of years they have been a leader with Pack 107. Thank you for all that you do for Pack 107 and for our Scouts!

D72_7888 This year, we also said goodbye to one of our leaders. Erik wears many hats in the Scouting community and decided that this year would be his last with Pack 107 to be able to dedicate more time to the other units he serves, as well as his district position. He was presented a gift- a plague thanking him for his years of service and dedication to our Pack and to our Scouts.

Following the ceremony, Scouts played some Ga-Ga ball while dinner was grilling. Reverend Dr. Barbara from the Congregational Church was kind enough to come by and say a blessing before our meal. After dinner, Scouts played more Ga-Ga ball and other games. One of our Scout parents even brought a drone to take some pretty awesome shots of the Scouts playing.

We ended the evening with a campfire, beginning with the introduction of campfire ashes from past year’s campfires. We made some s’mores and had an entertaining evening of skits, songs, and stories put on by various dens, leaders, and Scouts BSA Troop 2019. We ended the campfire with a flag retirement ceremony and Scout Vespers.


Thank you to all of our Pack families for joining us on this special occasion. Special thank yous go out to Reverend Barbara for giving our blessing, to Scouts BSA Troop 107 for helping run activities for our Scouts, to Scouts BSA Troop 2019 for leading us in a beautiful flag retirement ceremony, to Christine G and Chris N for taking such wonderful photos of this event, and to all the parents and leaders who helped out during the event. 🙂
