June we celebrate being a "family" at our annual Pack 79 picnic at Rosedale park in Pennington. There will be food, games, good music and a whipped cream eating contest for boys!

Our charter organization, Robbinsville American Legion Post 530, is sponsoring a dedication to Veterans at Community Park on June 14th at 7PM and we will be there for support!

July come and sing silly songs, watch silly skits and eat yummy smortillas at our annual campfire. Cubmaster Steve will bring his guitar to keep us all in tune and we'll be entertained by the boys and their skits.

Enjoy a Trenton Thunder game with your Cub Scout friends, then after the game set up your tent in the outfield and watch a movie on the big screen before turning in for the night.

August brings our guided tour of the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton. At the Museum our group will be sent back in time to 1777 where they will be recruited into General George Washington's Army. A soldier will prepare us for the realities of soldier's life, and even provide a live musket demonstration. We will be prepped for smallpox inoculation and learn about common 18th century medical practices. Our group will also meet with a witness to the Battle of Trenton who recounts the crossing, the march, and the battle.

We will also be hosting a "Chess and Checkers fun" event. We'll have some adult volunteers teaching checkers and by the end of the event you'll know how to play too!

Sept is the pack annual Fall Camp Out! Bring your tent or select a room in the conference center for an over night experience. They'll be lots of fun for everyone and we'll try and complete a few adventure requirements too.
