Get Excited for Adventure Day!

Adventure Day is the Cub Scout level recruitment event that your pack can use for both new and returning members! Scouts will enjoy fun STEM activities like slime making and water bottle rockets, while parents will get information and be able to sign up their kids. New Scouts can even work on their Bobcat rank by learning things like the Scout Oath and Law.

We have 5 Adventure Days, all on Saturdays--please plan on attending and helping at the most convenient one for you!

  • August 25 - Aiea (exact location TBD)
  • August 25 - Mililani (Cornerstone Fellowship, 9-11 AM)
  • September 8 - Kapolei (Bushwackers Archery Range, 4-6 PM)
  • September 15 - Waipahu District Park (10 AM - 1 PM)
  • September 22 - Waialua Elementary School (10 AM - 1 PM)
