LABOR DAY

We will open again Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at 9 am. 

 


 

It is with great sadness that we are forced to cancel our 3rd Annual Buffalo/Raffle.

Delta Interior Game Ranch (our vendor for the Buffalo prizes) notified us on August 3rd that they have cancelled their hunts for the 2.5yo animals for this year.

If you have purchased tickets, please be patient as we account for tickets still out with our VFW sellers.

A full refund will be coming back to you very soon from Post 10029.

For further information, & questions please contact CJ at (907) 452-1976 or email Clinton.Stewart@Scouting.Org

Scouting is about character and leadership.

The Scout Oath and Law – our very foundation – call for helpfulness, bravery, common courtesy, and respect among all people. Our values call us to stand up to injustice, as we strive to help other people at all times.

The Scouting movement recognizes and celebrates that the attributes that make us different actually draw us together as Scouts, citizens, and human beings. We refuse to accept violence or injustice toward another human being.

As Scouts, we recognize that much work remains to be done. We are committed to empathy, compassion, and to meaningfully improve. Scouting teaches young people to come together to find peaceful solutions, to work to become the best versions of themselves, and to create a better world.

Hiking

SUMMARY
Hiking is a great way to spend your time in the outdoors. It’s also a good way to get your heart pumping for some exercise or to test your limits. Some hikes are just a few hundred feet while others are many miles, but all can pose potential hazards if not carefully considered. Take some time to research your destination and its terrain so you can better prepare to have a memorable experience and fun while exploring.  Read more

Scouts do stuff. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together.

Set goals and clear them. They go places. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. These life-changing experiences — and the confidence they provide — become bricks in the wall of childhood. Bricks that eventually form a foundation. One a Scout can stand on to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles. For the parents watching in awe, it’s not a question of where their Scout will go, but where won’t they go.
