Scout Jubilee

Troop 412 was at Scout Jubilee held at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park from October 10th through the 12th. This special event is only held every 4 years. This year’s Jubilee was Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) based and featured many educational activities and displays. More that 6,000 Scouts from four different states participated in the Jubilee. The various bounce houses, human hamster balls, mechanical bull, and zip lines were very popular for both the Cubs and Scouts. Troop 412 along with Pack 349 (Dodge Elementary) camped at the Little Creek campsite for the weekend. This year’s event featured concerts by Hairball on Friday night and SmashMouth on Saturday night followed by fireworks. Hairball’s show featured tributes bands popular in the 80s and 90s. The lead singers were dead-on with vocals and their mannerisms. Smashmouth exited the crowd with hits like “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”, “All Star” and “I’m a Believer” (both from the movie Shrek).
