Arrow of Light Ceremony at Blue & Gold Dinner



Webelos from Pack 3384 line up to receive their Arrow of Light award (which can be worn on their Boy Scout Uniform) and cross the bridge, both literally and metaphorically, into Boy Scouts.  Adult leaders and Boy Scouts from troops 3262 and 3384 wait for the graduating Webelos on the opposite side of the bridge to welcome them to their troops as they continue their adventure in Scouting.  

The Arrow of Light ceremony was held at the end of the Blue & Gold dinner, a pot luck affair put on by the Scout's families.  The Blue & Gold dinner is traditionally held to commemorate the anniversary of the incorporation of the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910.  The 2019 Blue & Gold Dinner was held at Base Camp, a building which was originally built as a cavalry drill hall on Ft. Snelling a the beginning of the 20th Century.

A night at the races!



Cubmaster Nick leads the pack in the 2018 Pinewood Derby, with the assistance of Scoutmaster Gordon Vizecky of Troop 262(www.troop262.org), seated at the table using a laptop to run the race software. The 2019 Pinewood Derby was on February 26, 2019; and was also led by Cubmaster Nick with the assistance of Gordon Vizecky. The pinewood derby is one of Cub Scouting's longest traditions.  Scouts and adult partners work together to build race car from a kit provided by the pack, be sure to come and check out the action next year. 

Ice Fishing at Bush Lake



One need not journey far to enjoy the great outdoors, as members of pack 384 prove by trying their hand at ice-fishing at Bush Lake in Bloomington.  With ice more than a foot thick great fun was had by all. 

2019 Winter Camp



Pack 3384 held it's annual winter camp at Stearns Scout Reservation from February 8-10.  The base of operations was the recently opened Tonkawa Lodge, which has indoor flush toilets, showers, ample sleeping space, and a great kitchen and dining/activity area.  The pack conducted several outdoor and indoor activities. 

Winter Camp 2019-Wrist Bands



Scouts are shown how to make a leather wrist band by their adult leaders.  This was one of several activities at the 2019 Winter Camp. 

Winter Camp 2019-Den Chief & Scouts



A Den Chief (an older Scout that assists the adult den leaders) atop the Stearns sledding hill with two Cub Scouts.  The sledding hill at Stearns has been a favorite of Scouts for many years. 

Winter Camp 2019-Sledding Hill



Shown here is the sledding hill at Stearns, designed with both safety and fun in mind.  The length and grade of the hill provides hours of fun, snow and weather conditions permitting!

Winter Camp 2019-Chow Call!



Keeping everyone fed is always a priority for Pack 384.  Shown here is Sunday breakfast prepared by the adult leaders. 

3rd point of the Scout Law: A Scout is helpful



 A Cub Scout from pack 384 lives out the Scout Law by being helpful (A Scout is concerned about other people.  He willingly helps others without pay or other reward) by taking a shift of bell ringing for the Salvation Army at the Mall of America. 

2018 Genius Projects



Cub Scouts brought their genius projects for judging to the November 2018 pack meeting.  Scouts are given a bag of odds and ends to make something with.  Craftsmanship and imagination are always on display for this event.  Projects were laid out on table and arranged by Den for all to see. 

Parents in Action! - fall 2018



Cub Scouts is a youth program for boys and girls in grades K-5 and an adult partner.  There are plenty of ways for parents (and other adult partners) to be involved in the pack, here are some of them helping out with the fall pancake breakfast fundraiser at Woodlake Lutheran Church.  The Scouts acted as greeters for the church, helped serve, and clean up the breakfast. It was a great event, greatly appreciated by the members of Woodlake, thanks to all involved!

2018 Open House



New and returning Scouts and adult partners came to the pack open house, where on of the activities available was the Northern Star Council's portable (and very safe-blunt arrows and soft targets) portable archery range. 

Off to another great year of Scouting fun!

4th of July Parade



The pack participated in the annual Richfield 4th of July parade with Scouts and adults riding their bikes, walking, and rollerblading along the route.  Way to go Pack 384!

Bear Den Carnival



In the spring of 2018 the Bear Den held a carnival with games, prizes, food, and even a fortune teller; as a charity fundraiser.  Way to go Bears!

Palm Sunday Pancake Breakfast



Two Cub Scouts live out the Scout Law by being helpful, friendly, and courteous while operating a beverage cart for the Palm Sunday pancake breakfast.  The pack puts on the breakfast as fundraiser for the pack, with some of the proceeds going to Woodlake Lutheran Church, the pack's chartering organization.  For further information about Woodlake Lutheran, check out the website:  http://woodlakechurch.org/


Popcorn Sales



Your Unit Commissioner was out and about the other day when he saw a Cub Scout from Pack 384 and his dad out selling popcorn.  Fundraising is part of many organizations, and Cub Scouts are no exception.  Youth learn many positive things by participating, and the money raised helps fund unit activities and the larger scouting organization. 

The pretzels were delicious by the way, thanks guys!
