Welcome to Pack 194
Rocket Launch October 25
We will be having our annual rocket launch event next Sunday from 10-2 at the Liljegren Field (behind the high school). Rather than having a pack-wide event we will host the individual dens one at a time in order to reduce the potential for spreading COVID-19.
The schedule will be by den, with each den allotted a 30 minute window. If you can’t make it to your den’s assigned slot, email rockets.pack194.net and we will find you a different slot. The rockets cost $10 each and there is an additional cost of $3 for the rocket engines (2 for $5). Rocket kits will be delivered to your home the Tuesday prior to the launch if you sign up by 8 PM Monday; you can pay for the rockets at the launch event (we trust you!). You can still sign up after Monday. Email rockets.pack194.net for details.
BRING A FRIEND
In the past, the rocket launch has been our biggest recruiting event. Everyone loves rockets! Invite your friends to see how much fun scouting can be. They can sign up on the website to receive a rocket or if they come to the launch we will have a few spare rockets ready to launch. Just add their name to the list and add a note that they are your guest.
Each den group must stay as a unit. Scouting rules permit no more than 12 people (including adults) in a group, but multiple groups are permitted if they are at least 20 feet apart. If you arrive early, wait at the edge of the field until your den is called. Don’t Mingle! Everyone must wear a mask and do their best (Cub scout motto!) to maintain social distance during the launch.
Unlike previous years, we will have no food. We will also not be prepared to help you build the rocket during the event. If you can’t build the rocket at home, we will have a limited number of pre-built rockets on hand.
The kits are fairly easy to assemble, but your scout will need some adult assistance. Here is a video showing how one of the rocket kits is assembled:

October 12th 2020: Virtual Pack Meeting
Rocket Launch: October 2020!
Scouting offers young people opportunities to learn about the outdoors, citizenship, and cooking, while making new friends. Pack 194 is a part of the Boy Scouts of America, and we are the unit that runs the BSA’s Cub Scout program for children in grades K-5 for Bedford, Massachusetts. Our energetic and enthusiastic group of well-trained, volunteer adult leaders are committed to running the Cub Scout program, and making it an experience filled with lots of purposeful fun, adventure, and learning for the children of Bedford. Pack 194 has a 50+ year tradition and is one of the more active packs in eastern Massachusetts.
Scouting focuses on encouraging and reinforcing important character traits, such as citizenship and leadership. Cub Scouting also introduces many important life-skills including things like working with tools and emergency preparedness.
If you are interested in learning more about Cub Scouting and Pack 194, and what it can do for your child, we invite you to take a tour at our page Cub Scouts 101. Or, you can visit our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/bedfordpack194/. We are convinced that we can offer your child memories and skills that will last a lifetime.
