CUB PACK 712
Pack 712 meets on Mondays from 7:00 to 8:30 on days when school is in session. The pack does not meet in the summer, but holds a special event each month. One of our upcoming trips is to the Aircraft Carrier Yorktown in Charleston, S.C.
The pack has a very traditional program with boys broken into dens according to age. Monday meeting include advancement opportunities and recreation time. The cubs participate in several parent-son camping trips each year and favorite destinations include Raven Point on High Rock Lake and Raven Knob Scout Camp. Other activities include snow tubing, bowling, and a pinewood derby.
Greg Hall has served as cub-master for nearly three years and has several den leaders who assist him.

Boy Scouts Troop 712
Troop 712 meets on Monday nights from 7:00 to 8:30pm in the boy scout hut which is the cinderblock building behind the fellowship hall. The troop currently has 10 scouts. Our program mainly includes a high adventure, back packing style camping and individually oriented advancement opportunities.
Our Scoutmaster, Gary Hunt, is wood badge trained and has over ten years experience as a scout leader. His assistants, Dana Hall and Joe Hughes, were scouts as teenagers and continue to participate in several outdoor activities. A great deal of scouting experience is possessed by all of our leaders.
We conduct several troop fund raisers each year which allow scouts to participate in outdoor activities at a reduced cost. We are determined not to let financial situations stand in the way of a boys participation in scouting.
We have a high percentage of the boys who continue in the program achieve the rank of Eagle since we can individually gear the program to the boys needs.
Our troop will be going on a trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico for June 16 to July 2. We are currently selling Papa John's coupons to raise funds for this trip and soliciting funds through a stock program which entitles stock holders to attend a post-Philmont celebration with dinner and a slide show.
Several of our boys are close to reaching their Eagle and will age out in about one year. The troop will then rebuild towards more high adventure for the future.
