Mom & Me registration closing Friday!!!

Hey Scout families,

Registration for Mom & Me closes Friday, 10/14!!!

Mom and Me (or dad and me or grandparent and me, etc.) is October 22nd-23rd at Camp Pirtle in Gary, TX. This event is a favorite of scouts all over the area. It's a whole Saturday of pack filled scouting fun hosted by the East Texas Area Council so there will be scouts from all over our area. There will be canoes, a rock climbing wall, BB guns, archery and so much more! Check-in is at 8 AM on Saturday at Camp Pirtle. If you are not able to camp overnight, you may go for just the day. Check-out is by 10 AM on Sunday. There are more details on the pack website under the MOM & ME tab at the top of the page. The pack fundraising is covering a portion of the cost for scouts and parents, so our cost is only $25 per person.

**EVERY Participant will need Health Forms A & B and ALL Adults MUST have a copy of their updated YPT (Pic on your phone is fine).

(Trust me, you do NOT want to be trying to complete it in the parking lot!)

If you have not yet completed your YPT (Youth Protection Training), go to and login or create an account. Once logged in, click on the link on the right-hand side to access YPT. There are three modules and an exam that must be passed with a 75% or higher. It may take 24hrs for your completion certificate to appear in my.Scouting under My Training.

If you have not completed health forms, you may download the attached file. Bring both the forms and YPT certificate with you on the 22nd, or email in advance to the pack email at


Also, the Rose Parade in Tyler is this Saturday at 9:00 AM! MORE PARADE INFORMATION COMING VERY SOON!!!

Hope you're having a scout-tastic week!
