Cameron Williams from Pack 54's Den 3 won the Makatewa District Pinewood Derby on May 4th, 2013. Cameron won the right to participate by doing so well in the Pack 54 Derby. Hopewell Cubs were invited to participate in this derby as our district did not hold a pinewood derby.

Pack 54 is a volunteer-run organization that is only successful when parents help out. We need every scout parent to help out in some way, whether it’s weekly at Den Meetings or helping set up for a derby. Join us for a one hour meeting to hear more about how you can help ensure the program is successful for your son and other scouts. Childcare available.

Our Space Cadets blasted off during the 2012 Pack 54 Space Derby, which was held at the Monroe Lending Library on Saturday, October 20th. After passing a rigorous set of registration checks ("Glued, notched and has at least one hole in it? Check!"), cadets towed their space craft to the hangar bay for final inspection and maintenance prior to blast off. Then, with their engines wound tightly and craft lined up four abreast at the starting gate, the cadets collectively and loudly counted down, "THREE... TWO... ONE... BLAST OFF!!!" With the starting gate lowered, the space craft raced down the line to the cheers of the Cub Scouts and their families.
After a fun-filled day of racing--and some cookies and punch, of course!--the winners from each den were officially in the record books:
- 1st place: Micah T.
- 2nd place: Zachary K.
- 3rd place: Noah Y.
- Cub's Choice: Owen L., Zach B. & Conner L.
- 1st place: Thomas D.

Great job to all Scouts who participated in the 2012 Space Derby, and thanks to all members of the Space Derby Committee and all the volunteers whose efforts made this another great Pack 54 event!
Last weekend, more than 80 total Cub Scouts and family members--including many Scouts new to Pack 54--gathered at the Timber Hill Park at Rentschler Forest Preserve for the Pack 54 August Campout. Rick Guba, Pack 54 leader extraordinaire, lit the campfire with an impressive display of flame throwing, tossing balls of fire from his bare hands (don't try this at home, kids!) into the Pack 54 fire ring and bringing to life multi-colored flames to highlight the various Cub Scouts emblems. Very Cool!!! Scouts and their families then enjoyed many entertaining songs and skits performed by other scouts, leaders and family members. Among the many hilarious skits was a particularly challenging one, in which I was given the opportunity to demonstrate my ninja prowess. Unfortunately, it turns out that I'm not actually a ninja, and I ended up soaking myself from head-to-toe with the water staged by none other than Den Leader Charlie "This is my last pack campout" Beorn. (Nervously chuckling, Charlie was later overheard saying, "I've decided not to spend the night, after all.") Alas, we will miss Charlie's campfire songs, even if he did show me that I'm more of a "pizza man" than a "Jackie Chan."
On Saturday morning, we assembled for a delicious breakfast of pancakes, sausage and scrambled eggs, and after raising the American flag, the Scouts headed off for a morning of activities that included a marshmallow gun range, a tough obstacle course, a scavenger hunt and a tomahawk-making station. For lunch, we enjoyed a quick meal of hot dogs, chips and bug juice, and after we made sure to Leave No Trace by walking through the fields and campsites to collect any trash that may have been left behind by ourselves and others who came before us, we lowered the flag and broke camp.
Throughout the weekend Scouts in all dens had the opportunity to earn advancement and belt loops, make new friends, learn new campfire songs and enjoy camping in the beautiful outdoors. Thanks to everyone who helped organize and carry out this great event, and a special thanks to our Outdoor Activities Committee for organizing the events and coordinating the meals.
Do a Good Turn Daily... Leave No Trace... and we'll see you around the campfire!
