Black River District Holds Fun Festivals

This past weekend, the Black River District hosted two Cub Scout fun festivals to recruit new youth into local packs, and to showcase the fun Scouting has to offer. Twenty four new interested Scouts and their families attended.

On May 21 at Redeemer Lutheran Church, packs and troops from Roxbury and Mount Olive townships set up activity stations, including model campsites, campout cooking demonstrations, sand art, and corn toss games.

On May 23, packs and troops from Basking Ridge set up activity stations, including first aid demonstration, knot tying, and Pinewood Derby racing.

At both events, interested youth had fun with the inflatable BB range, Backyard Bass fishing activity, and building and launching stomp rockets.

Roxbury-Succasunna units participating in the May 21 event were Troop 159, Pack 159 and Pack 54, and Flanders Troop 156 also participated.

Basking Ridge units participating in the May 23 event were Troop 54 Liberty Corner, Troop 351, Troop 555 boy and girl troop, Pack 54 Liberty Corner and Pack 55.
