Pack 502 EventsPack 502 holds five to seven major events every year to bring Cub Scouts and their families together for fun and learning. Our fall and spring campouts and the annual Big Bang event provide opportunities to have experiences and develop bonds that cannot be replicated in a one hour den meeting a week. All overnight camping is family camping, and we encourage full families to camp with their Scout at Pack events. We host derby events each year for fun crafting competition. The Pinewood Derby is our more formal race with a digital track, multiple heats, and trophies for the winners. When time allows we hold a more casual competition later in the scout year. The Raingutter Regatta has air-blown boats running in water tracks, and the Space Derby suspends propeller-driven ships along raised strings.
Fall CampoutThe Fall Campout is usually held in early November at a Texas State Park. This event is often the first camping experience for Cub Scouts or even the first experience for their families. Dens are encouraged to work on outdoors-related advancements, camp cooking and safety. Activities planned for a variety of experience levels help guarantee success.
The Pack goes on a Spring Campout in mid-April every year, often staying at the Guadalupe River or Inks Lake State Parks. The spring camping trip is a great time for the boys to practice the skills they’ve been learning all year. A special campfire program is held at this campout for Cub Scouts ranking up to their level. Webelos who plan to move on to Boy Scouts can participate in a formal Crossover ceremony.
