Water Rockets

Pack 443 celebrates the start of the school year by launching water rockets sky high and cooling down with some Kona Ice!

All Pack 443 scouts/families and any prospective scouts/families are welcome to join as this is one of our biggest events of the year! It’s the perfect time to recruit your friends, classmates, and neighbors to join the best pack around!

Before arriving, check out the below video and create your water rocket with your son. Stickers, spray paint, and excessive duct tape are great ways to let your scout personalize their creation.

* Uniform requirement: Red Pack 443 activity shirts, bathing suit, and water shoes. *

* Bring your water rocket 1/3 filled with water. We will have several large water jugs on hand but these can run out. *

* Bring water guns, water bottles, sunscreen, camping chairs, picnic blankets and/or a canopy. *
