Pinewood Derby

Pinewood Derby is one of the most popular and successful family activities in Cub Scouting. Pinewood derby cars are small wooden models that Cub Scouts make with help from their families. Then they race the cars in competition. The cars are powered by gravity and run down a track.

February 29, 2020 will be the next Quicksilver Pinewood Derby. 

We.S.T. Fair

We would like to give your family a first-hand look at what Boy Scouting is all about! The Webelos to Scout Transition Fair will give you a preview of different Troops in our community. This is a great way to visit with Scouts and parents from other troops during the month of November. It is also a good way to find the best fit for you and your Webelos Scout.

November 9, 2019 is the proposed date for our next We.S.T. Fair.

More details coming soon!
