Pack and Troop 380 will be hosting a meeting for those interested in learning more about the great opportunities scouting has to offer.  The meeting will be virtual and held on Wednesday, September 9, starting at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be an opportunity for new families to learn about Scouting.

Both groups are open to both boys and girls. Pack 380, which is open for boys and girls from K through 5th Grade, is focused on preparation for Scouts through outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and service projects.  Troop 380 Scouts meet weekly and plan monthly events.

Scouts, a nationwide organization, helps teach its members the values of leadership, physical fitness, character development, civic responsibility and outdoor skills to kids from 6th grade to 18 years of age.
