Invite your family and Non-Scout Friends!

Come join your fellow Cub Scouts from Lake Minnetonka District for the 1st Annual, Cub Scout Ice Fishing Derby and Hot Chocolate. Located on Lake Independence, Maple Plain, Minnesota. Hundreds of Scouts and THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS will fish for sunfish, crappies, northern, and walleye and the chance to walk away with an award. And then there is the Hot Chocolate. Nothing tastes better then a hot cup of chocolate when out on the ice.

There will be an equipment demonstration by the Sheriffs Water Patrol, ice fishing demonstrations by local fishing and bait stores, and experienced scout leaders on hand to answer all your scouting questions.

It is not necessary for you to bring a non-Scout friend to attend this event.

Bear Goes Fishing belt loop - Cub Scouts working towards their bear rank will be able to earn most of their Bear Goes Fishing belt loop during the morning.
