Cub Scout Packs

Event description

Critter Race is a one-afternoon event for a Cub Scout pack to conduct and invite first- through fifth-graders from neighborhoods and nearby communities. This can be a family outing with fellowship and a big critter race. Bring your own critters and show how fast they go on the track. This event will create an opportunity to meet neighbors and make new friends.
