Spotlight: Extravaganza

Our first Pack Meeting of the school year is Extravaganza. Extravaganza is an annual event where we welcome new scouts, play games, have an overnight campout, and start the year off with an evening of fun!! This year, it will take place on Saturday, September 6 and Sunday, September 7 at Northbrook United Methodist Church on Crabapple Road in Roswell.


The dens will compete in a series of games to win the coveted Extravaganza Cup. This is followed by dinner, a Pack Meeting, den skits, campfire and s’mores, capture the flag, and an outdoor movie.¬† For those staying overnight, we’ll have breakfast and a devotional on Sunday. We encourage everyone to camp out, but camping overnight is not required to participate in the other activities.
