Raingutter Regatta: A Cub Pack 1031 End of Summer Tradition By Regina Halper




Pack 1031 scouts and family building their balloon powered “boats” at rain-gutter regatta

Cub Pack 1031 had a great summer! On August 22nd we met to do our annual Raingutter Regatta using balloons to propel the “boats” as part of the STEM NOVA Out of This World pin. We also had a great summer hiking, biking, launching bottle rockets and launched model rockets at NASA Goddard Visitors Center on August 7th.

We hope to be back in the cafeteria at Beltsville Academy this fall and look forward to meeting in one space.

Interested in discovering the fun of Cub Scouts for your child? Come to our Join Scouting event on Saturday, September 17th at Beltsville Neighborhood Park. Please contact Regina Halper at Pack1031cubscouting@gmail.com for information.

We are a family scouting unit. We learn outdoor skills, citizenship, STEM, nature and do service. 100% of our active scouts earned their rank this year! We always strive for over 85% to earn their rank, but this year they did fantastic!!

We are still being cautious, we meet weekly, stay arm’s length apart and we keep it fun! This fall we hope to be able to meet in the Beltsville Academy. We do wear masks unless we are biking or hiking in family groups until the numbers drop. Our den leaders are 100% vaccinated and our scouts too!
