    • Trinity Gymnasium Parking Lot

    Get ready to sing some songs, enjoy some skits, laugh with your friends and collect items for those in need. The annual Pack Family Winter Campfire is a time to remember the Cubscouts who have worked hard with their families to raise money for the Pack programs and to also remember those in need.

    All Scouts and their families are invited to participate in an event that we look forward to each year. We will be meeting in the parking lot outside the trinity gym and the event will not be canceled due to bad weather. In the case of rain or snow, the event will move indoors to the gym. Dress warm and bring your camp chairs to set up around the fires. Some type of snack and hot chocolate will be served.

    Winter Coats, Non-perishable Food and Toys!

    Its time to clean out your attic and closets of all those nice old coats that you are saving for a time that will probably never come. Most of us have been in a situation at some point when we were cold and didn’t have on the right clothing to stay warm. It’s an uncomfortable and disorienting feeling that leaves you unable to think about much else, other than how cold you are. Unfortunately, for millions of people, this can be a constant problem. Sometimes a warm coat is all it takes to ease a burden and warm a heart – especially during the winter months. Coats should be lightly used and clean.

    In addition to coats, we will also be collecting toys and non perishable food. Toys should be new and unwrapped and all food should be canned or "non perishable."

    Become one of the millions of Cub Scouts who have been building and racing Pinewood Derby® cars since 1953. Partnered with a parent or adult mentor, Cub Scouts work together, strengthening bonds and building confidence – and their own custom race cars! They begin by choosing a car design, then carve it out and detail it with paint, decals and other accessories, and perfect strategies to compete in their pack's Pinewood Derby. It's a wonderful learning experience centered on teamwork, ingenuity and sportsmanship – all for the thrill of the race and a lifetime of great memories to share with fellow racers young and old.

    The Pinewood Builders Workshop is an opportunity for parents and their scouts to meet with experienced Pinewood Derby racers and learn the fundamentals of designing, roughing, finishing and fine tuning a pinewood car. 

    This workshop is open to all Pack 846 scouts and family members regardless of scout rank, age or experience. If you consider yourself a pinewood racing expert, then we encourage you to stop in and share your skills and encourage others in the Pack. The builders program will consist of:

    • Drawing out some design ideas and then, guided by an adult mentor, sketch the outline of your chosen design on the wooden block.
    • Cutting out the car shape using woodworking tools, letting your adult mentor help you with the difficult parts. Use sandpaper to smooth the surface.
    • Painting your car and adding decals available from the council scout shop, local hobby stores and www.scoutstuff.org.
    • Installing the axles and wheels, working with your adult mentor to make sure they fit the car body at the right angle and that the wheels spin easily.
    • Add accessories if you'd like (Remember to check the Pack 846 rules.)

    Two very important notes from the Committee about Pinewood Derby:

    Please remember the Cub Scout motto:  Do Your Best, and Have Fun Doing It.  It’s true: your scout’s Pinewood Derby car should actually be built by your scout, and it is also a great opportunity for him or her to do their best.  If you or your Scout are not interested in the more technical aspects of car building such as graphite or polishing axles and wheels, don’t worry about it!  Remember the motto!

    Like most of our activities, the Pinewood Derby is a family event.  We will once again host races for parents, siblings, and former Cub Scouts on race day.  We strongly encourage parents and family members to design and build a car alongside their Scout.

    The Raingutter Regatta is a racing event for Cub Scouts that is the sailboat equivalent of the pinewood derby. 

    Each scout should have their sailboat kit that was provided to them by their Den Leader.  Scouts are free to paint and decorate their sailboats as they choose.

    The boats are raced in a standard rain gutter that is ten feet long, placed on a table and filled with water.  The boats are propelled by blowing on the sail.  The first boat to reach the end of the gutter is the winner.  Winners will take home fame and glory!!!!

    In the spirit of the regatta... Here's some boat jokes to share with your scouts:

    What detergent do sailors use? --------Tide! 

    Where do ghosts like to go sailing? -------Lake Eerie 

    Where do zombies like to go sailing?-------The Dead Sea

    The Weboree is a weekend overnight program held at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco for 4th-grade Webelos Scouts and their parents/guardians. The foremost purpose is to introduce the scouts and their parents/guardians to the type of activities that they can expect to do in Boy Scouts. The success of the Weboree is based on peer example: that a scout learns by the skills, attitudes and behavior of older, trained Boy Scouts and uniformed leaders.

    The nature of the program is a typical day at camp: an eight period day plus lunch and free time before supper. Each participant will follow a complete schedule for all events. In order for the council staff to meet with leaders and guardians, the afternoon schedule will include a surprise activity for the Webelos Scout.

    We promise to keep your Scouts busy all weekend!

    Weboree is a "rain or shine" event!!

    • Yogi Berra Stadium

    Pack 846 continues the tradition of participating in the annual Jackals sleepover event at Yogi Berra Stadium in Montclair. Families enjoy the baseball game and then pitch their tents in the outfield of the stadium. This is a great opportunity for the boys and girls to run around in the field while the parents take some time to enjoy each others company.

    As part of the program, families can participate in the legendary breakfast served by the jackals staff. The program ends very early on Saturday morning so you don't have to worry about conflicts with your Saturday schedule. You will be home by 9AM.

    The cost for the sleepover is $32.00 per participant. If you are only staying for the game the cost is $13.00 per participant. Rain dates will be announced if the event is canceled due to inclement weather. Registration email will be sent out soon.

    Cubmobile Races at Memorial Park on 8/8 (Rain Date 8/9)

    (Pack Event)

    Start Time: Saturday, August, 8 08:00 AM 

    End Time: Saturday, August, 8 12:30 PM 

    Location: Memorial Park Amphitheater

    Event Message:

    This is a joint event.  We will be participating with Packs from other nearby towns.  Cub Scouts may invite other youth who may be interested in Cub Scouts to attend this event.  All are welcome to attend!  Please send me an email if you are bringing additional participants.

    RSVP NOW!!  We must register all of the scouts participating by the end of next week!

    Event DescriptionThis event is friendly, non-competitive racing of Cubmobiles (soap box derby style racers) that each of the Packs have built (Pack 6 made five Cubmobiles). All Cubs will get the opportunity to "feel the need for speed" as they use gravity to "race" down the hill at Memorial Park in Maplewood (after a brief test to make sure that they can properly control the vehicle). We will use all available cars and match up cars and drivers with each race.  Parental assistance will be needed with set up, monitoring racing lanes, test drives, working with youth waiting to race, keeping all Cubs and siblings away from the race course when Cubmobiles are in motion, cleanup, etc. 

    Please come prepared for hot weather. Cub Scouts and parents are encouraged to bring water bottles, there will be water coolers to refill.  Cub Scouts please wear your Class-B uniform.  Please arrive promptly, as we plan to have an opening ceremony and take a group picture of the Cub Scouts and Cubmobiles before the racing begins.  

    If anyone has any questions, comments, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to call or email your pack/den leaders.

    Please do not forget the cameras and video cameras for this one! 

    Draft Schedule:  


    8:00am - 9:00am: leader/parent arrival and setup (we need people to arrive early to help set up) 


    9:00am - Noon: driver safety testing and racing


    Noon - 12:30pm: breakdown and cleanup



    In case of bad weather, we will notify families via email.  


    Important Safety Information: 


    => Cubs must wear closed toe shoes (sneakers or hiking shoes are best). Avoid shoes which could easily fly off or cause the feet to slip while driving.

    => Cubs must wear a safety helmet when driving one of the Cubmobiles. Cubs are encouraged to bring a helmet with them that fits properly (a bike helmet will work fine; alternatively a baseball batting helmet, football helmet, or motocross helmet will also work).

    => Please note that elbow pads, wrist guards, knee pads, safety goggles, thigh pads, driving gloves, and shoulder pads are all optional...:-)=> Cubs will have the opportunity to practice in the Cubmobiles before racing down the big hill. 

    => Cubs must demonstrate that they can stop the car using the hand brake before they will be allowed to race down the hill. Cubs must not try to use their feet to stop - the Cubmobiles will pick-up a fair amount of speed coming down the hill and the "Fred Flintstone"/"Barney Rubble" approach is not going to work! Worse than that, the Cub can seriously hurt a foot or ankle so we need to ensure that they MUST USE THE HAND BRAKE TO STOP.

    Thanks to our very successful flag fundraiser, Pack 846 has 5 Cubmobiles to use for this event!
