Scout Fun Day is a free, action-packed day for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing Scouts, and Sea Scouts. Scouts will enjoy a variety of activities such as sports, crafts, fishing, and more.
Scout Fun Day is an event not only for existing Scouting families but for potential Scouts too, so invite a friend to attend. All new Cub Scouts and their parents are invited to their first district Scouting event. Boys who join Cub Scouts this year will receive a rocket that they can design, build, and launch at Rocket Day. Boys in first through fifth grade who are interested in joining Scouting may also attend. We will help you find a pack near you and get signed up for Scouting.
The event is being held at Lakeside Park (5001 Alden Bridge Dr., Spring, TX 77382). Distribute the promotional placemat/ activity sheet to Scouts to remind them about the event. The half-day flier can be attached to the rockets.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Sam Houston Area Council as a result of the annual popcorn sale. 70% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are three options to sell popcorn: traditional take order sales, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-n-sell. New for this year, units that sell over $12,000 will receive free home popcorn delivery. For more information, contact the district popcorn kernel, Mary Welch.
