There will also be many other fun and educational activities; such as hidden transmitter hunts, electronic project assembly, solar telescopes, demonstrations of satellite communications, and much more throughout the day!

We’ll be having our last Pack “summertime” event Wednesday, August 29th from 4-7pm at Summit Rock Climbing Gym in Grapevine. We thought it would be an awesome way to start both the school year and Cubscout activities by having the event during the 1st week of school, which is ½ days. If your scout brings a friend who is interested in joining, both boys fees are waived. Please print, fill out, and bring the waiver, especially if there is a child without a parent or guardian in attendance. If you want a great way to beat the heat, please come climb with the Pack!
Location: Summit Climbing Gym is located at 1040 Mustang Drive, Grapevine (www.summitrockgym.com/)
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 29th, 4-7pm
Cost: $15/climber (please pay at the event and make checks payable to "Pack 937") Free for child interested in scouting and scout that brings him.
If you haven't tried climbing at Summit, this is a great opportunity to rock climb in a safe, air conditioned environment. It really is a lot of fun!
Please let us know if you plan to attend - we'll have pizza and refreshments at the event and want to make sure we have enough for everyone.
