Popcorn Sales
Our Pack did very well with popcorn sales this year.  The top sellers were Nicky Belt (Webelos II Den 2) and Dylan Trone (Wolf Den 4).  In fact, because of the amount of sales, Nicky Belt received a scholarship and was recently recognized by the Capital City District as one of the top sellers.  Congratulations!

New Scout and Camping at Sly Park

Posted on Sep 22 2018 - 8:52pm

Our Pack keeps growing, as we have a new addition.  Carson Chorn signed up this week and is a member of the Wolf Den 4.  Please welcome Carson to the Pack 281 family!

Our first Pack camping trip is this Saturday, September 29 at Sly Park campground.  Webelos II Den 2 leader Jeff Kitchen organized the trip and will be sending out an email with details.  

The campground is off Hwy 50, approximately 45 min from Gold River.  Head west on 50 towards Lake Tahoe and take the Sly Park Road exit in Pollock Pines.  Continue on Sly Park Road for approximately 4 miles and the campground is on the left.  The campground sentry will direct you to the scout camp area. Families can begin setting up their campsites beginning at 2:00.  Feel free to select any campsite upon arrival.

Also, the Pack has enough funds to cover the $4/person camping fee.  So there is no cost to families!
