Family Trips

This page is to keep you informed of local day trips that families can take.  Many businesses have special "Scout Day" events where they offer discounts to Scouts. These trips may be on a Pack, Den, or Family level.  If a trip is pack or den level, it will appear on the appropriate calendar.  If you would like to add a trip to the list, please email Howell Pack 258.
