Fun at the Pack Campout


Thank you to everyone – parents, Scouts, and leaders alike – who helped make this weekend’s campout a huge success.  Thanks also to Tom and Bryce for all the pictures!

Pack 306 Salutes our Veterans


“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”  –George Washington

Thank you all for your service to our great country.

Who’s up for some CAMPING???


Hello Pack 306! This is the packing list and details for this weekend’s camping trip at Treasure Valley.

Drop-off: 12pm Saturday Nov 14
Pick-up: 9am Sunday Nov 15

We will be gathering at the West Lodge at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation. 394 Pleasantdale Road in Rutland. Click here for location details.
The lodge is heated with bunks, full bathrooms, and a full kitchen – all the luxuries that Treasure Valley can offer :) There may be an opportunity for boys who want to tent camp to utilize the open area immediately outside the Lodge. We will make the decision on this depending on weather, supervision, and availability of appropriate gear.

Packing List
Permission slip – if I don’t have one from you already. I will also bring extras.
Sleeping Bag
Fleece Layer
Base Layer
Warm socks x2
Knit Hat
Headlamp/Flashlight – with extra batteries
Water Bottle (full)
Pocket Knife – only for Bears and above who have earned their Whittling Chip. Don’t forget the card!
Day Pack
Toiletries – toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.

The Pack will be providing lunch, dinner, and a snack on Saturday, as well as breakfast on Sunday. Pick-up will occur promptly after breakfast at 9am Sunday.

Allergies and medications
Let me know immediately upon arrival if your Scout has any allergies to food, medications, insects/plants, etc.

If your Scout takes any prescription medication, please be prepared to give it to me in its original container (with instructions) upon arrival as well. I will dispense medication at the appropriate times and return the container upon pickup. Scouts may not self-administer on campout events, even if they are accustomed to doing so at home – this is a BSA policy.

This is going to be an awesome weekend! We can’t wait to see you there!

Welcome to Pack 193

Winchendon Pack 193 recently paid a visit to our Rutland 306 Geocache.  They were very excited to share some of their experiences with us, and to make friends with fellow Scouts.  A huge 306 shout out to Pack 193, and a challenge to our Geocachers to chase down 193’s cache and say “hi” to our new friends.

Let’s give our fellow Scouts a big boost!


Scouting for Food


Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out for our Scouting for Food event today!  We passed out collection bags and instruction door-to-door in a number of local neighborhoods.  Next weekend, we will be revisiting those neighborhoods and picking up any donations that residents have left out for collection, then we’ll bring them to the food pantry and help stock the shelves.  This is a great service opportunity for our boys, and a great way for Pack 306 to give back to the community.  We hope you can make it out next Saturday.  Time and meeting location details will be sent out this week.

And, another HUUUUUUGE 306 Shoutout goes to Tiger Cub Liam F., who finished off our event today by rocking his Bobcat requirements.  Way to Go Liam!!!


306 Fright Night!


On Friday, October 30’th, Pack 306 will be at the Rutland Public Library for FRIGHT NIGHT!  This is a family-friendly event and is open-to-the-public.  Doors open at 7pm.

Wear your Halloween costume.

Trick-or-Treat with Slenderman.
