Attention: Due to the severe weather expected from Hurricane Ian on the originally scheduled event date of Saturday, October 1st, the event staff and volunteers have made the decision to postpone the event to Saturday, October 29th. The time and location will remain unaffected on this new date.

This was done in the interest of keeping the event fun and safe for all those involved. Had the event merely moved indoors, it would have removed key activities from the program which we are striving to keep in place. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing each of you on October 29th!

This event is open to all Cub Scouts (Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos (K-5th Grade) in Gaston and Lincoln County.

This event will be held at First Baptist Church of Gastonia on Saturday, October 29th, 2022, from 9 A.M. – 1 P.M. (Program Starts: 9 A.M. / Check-In Opens at 8:30 A.M.).

Different stations, each with a different skill set will be open for all scouts and their families. These stations include BB-Guns, Archery, Model Rockets, Games, Scout Oath and Law, Handshake and Sign.

If interested to help at a station, please reach out to one of the contacts to the right.

An adult (legal guardian or parent) is required to attend with their Scout. Every scout in attendance will have the ability to complete their Bobcat rank requirements. No food will be provided; water and sunblock are recommended (dress appropriately for early fall weather).
