Activities and Civic Service
Golden Arrow holds an annual Pinewood Derby District Championship for the cub scout winners from each of the district's Packs.
Normally held in April at Collin Creek Mall, this event is an exciting time for both the boys and the district. Come check out the races!!
One of the main rolls of the Activities and Civic Service Committee is to help units with Community Service. Doing service projects in our communities is not something that our Packs and Troops struggle with. The biggest struggle is logging all of the service the Scouts do.
It is important to get these hours logged. This helps your unit and the district know how we are doing in servicing our community. Just think how impact-full it is when you talk to people about your unit and tell them the actual number of service hours your Scouts contributed to our community. People are always surprised to here what young people are doing.
Our District Cuboree will be at Camp Wisdom on October 21-23, 2016.
This is our premier FUN event for Cub Scouts every fall! Cuboree is a district-organized event that is a fun-filled weekend of games, crafts, and activities for Cub Scouts and their families.

Webelos Woods will be held at Camp James Ray on September 30-October 2, 2016. Spread the word and mark your calendars now!
