Scouting is fun for all the family Have Fun, Make Friends, See New Things.

Below are just some of the highlights of the events during the year.

Pinewood Derby

The Pinewood Derby is one of the most popular and successful family activities in Cub Scouting. Pinewood derby cars are small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families.

Then they race the cars in competition. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a track. Every boy can design and build his own "grand prix" car to enter in the race.

Stratham Hill Park Campout

Scouts and families enjoy a pot luck dinner, shoot bottle rockets and head to the top of Stratham Hill Park for a fun evening of smores, skits, and sleeping under the stars in tents.

Stratham scouts are one of the few organizations that have permission to camp in the park which provides a unique experience for the kids.

Battleship Cove Overnight

This overnight trip to Battleship Cover, Rall River, MA has become one of the most memorable Pack 185 events in recent years. Scouts and parents campout on the Battleship in the same quarters that once accomodated the ship's crew.

A great educational opportunity to teach our children how these World War II era battleships helped to preserve freedom in the world and the hard work and dedication by the thousands of crew members who to ran the ship. Movies, exhibits and special events on the ship (and nearby Maritime Museum) provide an unforgettable experience that no one will want to miss.

Museum of Science Overnight

Spend an evening at Boston's Museum of Science and experience the exhibits and shows that make this a popular event.

Campout in the Museum and get a private screening of the awesome IMAX movie before the theater opens to the public.

Blue and Gold Banquet

Scouts and families enjoy a pot luck dinner as they participate in a wonderful ceremony where they officially become Boy Scouts.
