Rocket Night

Rocket Nights have been a Stittsville Scouting tradition for the last decade plus. It is an opportunity for the youth to build their very own rockets and launch them (the rockets, not the youth) soaring into the evening sky.

What is Rocket Night?

  • Entry level (level 1) rockets are fun and easy to build either at home or during a meeting.
  • Outside activity on launch night – open field, no rain, and no or little wind
  • Scouter Kevin provides the training, launching equipment, general supervision & safety
