Goose Creek District’s Freeze-o-Ree
Hosted by Pack 1154 of Ashburn, the Goose Creek District Pinewood Derby is held annually on a Saturday in early March. Race Registration and Drop Off is held on the Friday evening the night before and again early Saturday morning. Race Day runs all day Saturday (each Rank separately) until late afternoon.
Who Can Participate: Any Cub Scout who placed 1st thru 5th in their Den Rank (Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Webelos, Arrow of Light) at their Pack Pinewood Derby. Other friends/family members, or those who did not place in their Pack’s race may participate in the Open Race.
Questions? Please contact Jason Beshore, GCD Pinewood Derby Chair.
The Goose Creek District Spring Camporee consists of two major events: a Patrol Challenge of several competition stations, and an Adventure Choice period for Scouts to explore challenging “High Adventure” program activities (additional fees apply). Each Unit has an assigned period for each event, so that everyone has equal opportunity for full participation. The Camporeee is designed for Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews or Explorer Posts.
The Patrol Challenge is based on the traditional Scout Camporee where patrols compete in challenges to see who can best demonstrate superior scout skills. Patrols earn points at each patrol challenge, with additional points earned for patrols who perform skits at the evening campfire. Adventure Choice Activities are optional. Each participant may choose one Activity. Adult participation in the Adventure Choice activities is free.

Goose Creek District holds our District Court of Honor in late April each year, recognizing those amazing Scouters who’ve made a huge difference in the lives of young people here in Goose Creek.

The Goose Creek District Webelos-o-ree is an overnight camping event designed to introduce Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts and their parents to the Scouts BSA program. The weekend is filled with fun and skills activities led by Goose Creek District troops. It begins with an opening ceremony Saturday morning and ends Sunday morning. The Saturday evening campfire is a special highlight!
Scouting for Food
Each November, Goose Creek Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA and their leaders take to the neighborhoods of Loudoun County in support of Scouting for Food. Scouts go door-to-door collecting non-perishable food items for families needing assistance within their local communities. Many log additional community service hours working in the collection sites, unloading vehicles and sorting the food donations. This has been a huge success over the years, with a 300% increase in food donation and delivery since 2001.
Goose Creek District Scouting for Food coordinator is Brad Scales.
