Pack 1980 Cub Scouts Had a Ton of Fun at the Yukon Trail

Posted on Mar 15 2014 - 7:33pm

The wind was fierce, even taking down the Pack 1980 slingshot station after lunch, but Pack 1980 Cub Scouts were even stronger.  Twenty-one Pack 1980 Cub Scouts worked together in their dens to overcome challenges such as the Iditarod sled race, the two-board river crossing, the square knot chuck wagon rescue, and the Yukon House of Pancakes toss and catch.  Scouts also had fun with classic scout activities of archery and slingshots and ended the day by trying to strike it rich while panning for gold.  

Pack 1980 Cub Scouts earned 23 ribbons for our pack flag, including 1st place ribbons in the following challenges:

  • Tiger Scouts:        Gold Panning, 2 Board River Crossing
  • Wolf Scouts:         Gold Panning
  • Bear Scouts:         Escape from Yukon 
  • Webelos Scouts:  House of Pancakes, Cattle Roping, Slingshots
