“Pack 2 5 8”


The Moment You Have All Been Waiting for!!!!


!!! “Big Trip 2017” for Pack 258 Is Finally Here!!!

What are we doing?

On May 21, 2017 we will be spending the day participating at the world famous construction amusement park DIGGERLAND in West Berlin NJ, and end our day blowing off some “Loud and Proud” steam as we play and eat dinner with our fellow Scouts, family and friends, at the most out of this world Gaming Restaurant DAVE AND BUSTERS located in the Historic Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, PA.


What’s the agenda?

We begin our day at DIGGERLAND where you can drive full size backhoes, dig giant holes with real excavators, and operate just about every sort of construction machine you might imagine.


DIGGERLAND is loaded with hands-on, heavy construction equipment for you and your family’s operating enjoyment. With over 26 attraction, everything form the ARGO to YOU-DIG ZONES, plus a rock wall, ropes course, arcade and stunt shows! DIGGERLAND has everything to satisfy your deepest heavy construction fantasy.  (Your challenge is to figure out what an ARGO is?)


DIGGERLAND is a full day of some of the purest “Clean, Fun, Family Filth” for the entire family.  Oh, and lunch.


Have a look at

And as if we needed a perfect ending to an already perfect day!!!!

After our day at DIGGERLAND we will make our way to DAVE AND BUSTERS in Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, PA where we will eat, drink and challenge our Fellow Scouts, family, and friends to the many side by side video and arcade games that only DAVE AND BUSTERS can offer. ….
