Pack 83 - 2014 Pinewood Derby - Congratulations to all the Racers!

January 2014 - Pack derby

March 2014 - Pack 83 hosted the Conestoga River District derby

What Scouting goals does the pinewood derby help a Scout achieve?

  • Sportsmanship and good citizenship is taught by following the derby rules and cheering on friends and den partners as they race against others in the pack.
  • Personal achievement comes to any boy who picks up a woodworking tool and shapes raw wood into a sleek design. 
  • Family understanding is enhanced because building a pinewood derby car puts the boy and his mom, dad, or other adult partner into a close and sometimes intense learning experience over, potentially, many hours.

Pack 83 - USS Constellation overnight adventure in Baltimore, MD - October 2013

A great Pack 83 outing with 27 scouts and family members attending.  The new 'sailors' worked on the ship to earn their dinner, slept overnight on board in hammocks, and learned to fire the ships guns in the morning.  Many scouts talked about the adventure the entire car ride home.  We hope they have great memories of the adventure...scavenger hunts, raising the spars, lowering and raising the flags, swabbing the decks, and the night time watch.
