Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 2017 Pinewood Derby
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets

On Saturday January 28th, 2017, Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 had their annual Pinewood Derby at the Selah United Methodist Church.

After the opening of the event, two Cub Scouts received some awards they earned. Then the Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby started.

Join the ranks of millions of Cub Scouts who have stood in the derby winner’s circle. Cub Scouts have been building their own cars and competing in Pinewood Derby® events since 1953! At the heart of this event’s success is the process itself – bonds are strengthened as the Cub Scout partners with a parent or adult mentor to design, carve, paint, weigh, refine, and race the car. In addition, Cub Scouts build confidence and take pride in their own growing skills and hard work. So enjoy the ride!

This year there were only 5 Pinewood Derby Cars racing due to how small the pack is. If you are interested in joining the fun, please e-mail selahadventures@outlook.com.

Ahtanum State Forest Camp-out
Report by Clay Graham. Photos by Clay Graham & Amanda Graham / Selah Sweets.

On Thursday evening August 4th 2016, Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 set up camp at Ahtanum Campground in the Ahtanum State Forest west of Yakima, Washington for a weekend Scout Camp-out and DNR volunteer opportunity.

The Scouts started off walking the Ahtanum Campground picking up trash in the camp sites and the Mid Fork Ahtanum Creek. Once the area was cleaned up, the Scouts set up camp.

After camp was set up and the Scouts had dinner, they set around the campfire playing games. There was a burn ban so the Scouts used a propane campfire which were allowed. Then it was off to bed.

Friday after breakfast, the Cub Scouts took a drive up the Mid Fork Ahtanum Creek road searched for a long stick for a flag pole and some to make a weather rock. Just below Tree Phones Campground they found long poles in piles of brush from a forest thinning project. They loaded the poles and headed back to camp. Once they got the flag up higher on the pole they found, they went for a swim in the creek.

Later in the day more Scouts arrived and set up their camps. Then it was a hotdog dinner and games. As it got dark,the Scouts moved over to enjoy the propane campfire. Then it was off to bed for the second night.

Saturday morning the Scouts started off with raising the flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. A pancake breakfast with bacon was next and then a back-road trip up to see the sights. Some of the places they went was up Whites Ridge 4×4 Trail, Snow Cabin Campground, Blue Lake, Darland Mountain, Clover Flats Campground, Eagle Nest, and Tree Phones Campground. From the view points they saw Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, Mount Adams, Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, and the Goat Rocks. They learned about reading maps and about the corner markers of Township and Range sections.

Back at camp the Scouts helped make a stew for dinner. After dinner the Cub Scouts gathered around the propane campfire, made smores, and then headed off to bed for the third night.

Sunday morning the Cub Scouts started off with raising the flag and the Pledge of Allegiance. Next there was a pancake breakfast with bacon.

After breakfast most broke down there camps. Before heading home, they took swim in the North Fork Ahtanum Creek at Ahtanum Meadows.

It was a very fun Cub Scout Camp Out.
