Splash Pool

Hi Pack 33,

While we may be getting our first measurable snowfall in DC this weekend, the water is warm at the Rollingcrest-Chillum Community Center and Splash Pool at 6122 Sargent Road. Chillum, MD 20782. will hold our Splash Pool meeting on Saturday, January 26th! 

This is both an annual gathering to enjoy the splash park in the middle of winter and a pack meeting. In addition to the swimming and splashing, this has always been our initial handout event for the Pinewood Derby Car Kits.

Our schedule will be as follows:

2:15 - 2:45 - Pack Meeting in the Community Center Adjacent to the Pool / Car Hand Out
3:00 - 4:45 - Splash and Swim in the Pool


Have your children wear their swimwear underneath their street clothes. We will also hold our meeting without Class A uniforms to make this a little easier. We typically have a lot of people to check in at the pool, and the locker rooms will get crowded. If the kids put on their swimwear under their street clothes, they will be ready to start splashing sooner rather than later.

All Scouts get in free of charge, but for all others, there is a modest charge you will pay directly at the pool. The costs are:

  • Free for all Scouts (covered by annual dues)

  • Free for each additional child, ages 2 and under

  • $5 for each additional child, ages 3 - 17

  • $6 for each adult ages, 18 - 59

  • $5 for seniors, ages 60 and up

The summer camps we attend all provide separate changing facilities for youth and adults. The Splash Pool (like most public facilities in the area) does not. Please let me or your den leader know if you have any questions or concerns.

Pinewood Derby Dates

Two important dates to mark your calendars with:

  • February 9 - Pinewood Derby Workshop
  • February 23 - Pinewood Derby!

Looking forward to see everyone at the Pool! If you cannot make it, your cars will go with your Den leaders for them to hand out at your next meeting.
