If you would like to sell popcorn at a store for the pack please click the link below to sing up for a slot!  All sales and donations will be divided evenly between the Scouts that are present at the sale and credited towards their $350 sales obligation.  Each slot is for one scout.  If you have two scouts please sing up for two slots.

Each sale will require one scout/family to lead the sale, if this slot is not filled the store sale will not happen.  This person will need to pickup the popcorn and sale supplies at Auburn United Methodist Church prior to the sale and return the supplies to AUMC after the sale.  They can coordinate the pickup and drop off with the Cubmaster via email at cubmaster@pack29auburn.com

Want to attend Fall Family Camp for FREE???
Please see the message below from Council for an opportunity to attend fall family camp from free.

Any Cub Scout Leader / Parent who helps staff a 4.5 hour shift on one of the weekends of Fall Family Camp, will be refunded their Scout's Fall Family Camp registration... so if you help for a weekend, your son gets to go for free.  How awesome is that??  We have stations taking place all day where you can help with Registration/Check-in, Shooting Sports (BB, Archery, Sling shots), field sports, crafts, the haunted house, and more! 

Not in Cub Scouts?  Not a problem!  We are accepting volunteers from any parents, siblings, Boy Scout Troops, and/or Venture Crews who want to volunteer; this is perfect if you have scouts who are looking for community service hours for their next rank advancement. 

How do you sign up?  Good question; just visit this link
