Cub Scout Rocket Academy

3… 2…1… BLAST OFF to the new Rocket Academy programs!

ALL 2020-2021 events will be done outside and have been redesigned to follow Covid-19 protocols!

The camp is transformed into the Rocket Building Hangar, as parents and Cub Scouts come together to design their very own Rocket. It’s a family camp out with NASA Displays and activities, model rockets, water rockets, chemical rockets, air rockets, and more!

The Longhorn Council cares deeply about the health and safety of all Scouts and their families. Our 2020-2021 weekend events have been redesigned to incorporate the latest CDC, State, and BSA guidelines and make them as safe as possible during the covid-19 pandemic. The updated event plans make it possible for Scouts, adults, and families to have fun in the outdoors while safely following current social distancing and hygiene protocols.

All events have new procedures for cleaning, sanitizing, hygiene, mask wearing, and social distancing to avoid crowds and to keep our Scouts outside where it is much safer than indoors.

  • Arrival and Check_in Times by appointment.
  • BB & Archery Times by appointment.
  • Rocket Launch Times by appointment.
