Dalhart Cub Scout Day Camp was a Blast

The Dalhart Cub Day Camp was, once again, a great activity for our kids.  All of the Cubs in attendance had a blast!  Thank you to Packs 46, 146 & 39, and to all the adult volunteers for putting on a great camp!  You guys did amazing things for your kids, in Dalhart!

August Leader meetings

The upcoming August Leader meetings are extremely important to you as leaders and critical to the health and success of your units.  Each Unit should be represented by at least one leader.  We will be going over 2010-2011 Program Planning material, Back to the Pack meetings, upcoming training opportunities, School Night planning, program delivery changes for Cub Scouts, and the 2010 Popcorn Sale.  Plan to attend; to not only learn about what’s going on in Scouting in our District and Council, but to share your ideas and experiences, so we can provide the best of the Scouting program to our kids!  The dates, times and locations of our meetings are listed in the calendar section, above.  Choose the location and date that is most convenient for you!
