George Observatory 2014

For our annual August trip, the Pack visited the George Obervatory outside of Houston. We saw a HUGE telescope, had a spider-filled ( yikes :) ) nature hike, saw a nice little planetarium, and even simulated a trip to a space lab. It'll be hard to top this next summer, but we'll sure try. :D Click for pics!

USS Lexington Sleepover

Our second summer activity for 2012 was a sleep over on the USS Lexington in Corpus Cristi! Over 50 scouts and adults attended from Pack 711, not including the family members that just stayed for the day. The scanvenger hunt had pack members running all over the ship and ghost stories kept us up at night (not to mention the 'coffin' beds ;) ). Click through for a photo slide show.

Rocket Launch!

The first mid-summer for 2012 was a model rocket launch! We had 3 pads going non-stop from 7PM until it was too dark to see the rockets. Click through for the picture slide show.
