Virtual Overnight Campout

Our 1st ever Virtual Pack Campout was held on the weekend of November 14-15. During the event, our scouts made their favorite pasta dishes for dinner, followed by “campfire” S’mores.

Although the night weather conditions were not ideal, some scouts were able to sleep outdoor in tents and enjoyed it.

In the morning, they made the famous “Scout omelets in a bag” for breakfast and and had lots fun doing other scouting activities.

October Pack Meeting: International Space Station Virtual Tour and Viewing Party

Research scientist and NASA-trained astronaut Gary Bostrup was invited to join our pack Zoom meeting on Oct 8th to talk about the International Space Station, the Space Shuttle program, doing scientific research in space, and answered some questions from our scouts. Gary showed us a photo of him doing near-zero gravity training aboard NASA’s Vomit Comet Boeing 707. Very impressive!

After the meeting, we went outside to watch the International Space Station passing above the Oak Park area. During the few minutes of the ISS pass, almost all the scouts could see the bright star-like spacecraft zipping through the night sky. We even used Ham radio equipment to capture its radio signature during the pass.
