Unit 7009 feels the Scouting program should be available to every child who wants to come and learn with us. Fun with a purpose.
We believe in the program so much we want to share it with EVERYONE; we never want money to be a hurdle in scouting.
In order to provide a fun learning environment and provide all the opportunities available to scouts such as summer camp and scouting actives like bowling and fishing trips we need to fundraise.
Scouting can be costly, from joining fees, uniforms and activity fees and camping fees. Fundraising helps minimize the cost for a scout and their family to join the scouting program.
The pinewood derby is the wood car racing event of Scouts BSA. With the help of adults, Scouts build their own unpowered, unmanned miniature cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine wood, plastic wheels, and metal axles.
Come join us at our first annual Salem Pinewood Derby Race and Car show. Pinewood Derby is open to people ages 5 to 100+ years of age.
