What did we do last year? We had a bike rodeo with Miami Shores Police Department. We helped with the Coastal Clean-Up efforts in North Shore Open Space Park. We went camping in Bill Baggs State Park, Cape Canaveral, Daytona Speedway, Fort Wilderness and Lion Country Safari. We visited Kennedy Space Center- our group was so large, we filled an entire tour bus! We've gone hiking, built birdhouses, planted trees, sponsored basketball teams, ran concession stands, run carnivals, told jokes, practiced magic, acted out skits, built robots, gone fishing, built and raced regattas, rockets and racecars, gone to Pow-Wows, toured fire stations, and some of our scouts were able to go on their first flight lesson! We had two events every month through the summer.
And what is happening now? Weekly meetings for this year started on August 31st, 2016. Troop 1305 meets on Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 7:30 at Miami Shores Elementary School in the cafeteria. Pack 1305 meets on Wednesday nights at the Miami Shores Community Church from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. We have a great team of leaders with a full calendar planned. Come join us and see what we're all about!
What is it all about?
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. The Scout Oath: "On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight." Scout Law: " A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, Reverent."
Originally we began with just Pack 1305. As our young men grew older and our sister siblings wanted to join in the fun, we have now grown. Our mission continues to follow that of the BSA. We go camping, we contribute to community service efforts, we teach our children to be safe and responsible.
Now that school is back in session, we have regular weekly meetings. We boast a high percentage of scouts earning rank, our leaders are well-trained and our scouts well-decorated. Come see for yourself. Join the fun! You are welcome to join us at any time! Check our calendar or contact page for more information.
