Boy Scouts :

Becoming a Cub Scout is as easy as sayin’ This is Gonna Be Fun! Cub Scouting is open to all boys in the First through Fifth grades. First grade boys and their adult partners become Tiger Cubs. The Tiger Cubs meet only once a month apart from the Pack and follow the motto “Search, Discover, Share”. Tiger Cubs don’t have to meet advancement requirements and the uniform requirements are minimal. All other boys are grouped together in Dens consisting of six to eight boys which meet weekly during the school year.

Scouts in the Second grade are “Wolves”, Third grade Scouts are “Bears” and Scouts in the Fourth and Fifth grades are “Webelos”.

Generally, Scouts work on their achievements at their Den Meetings, while parents assist them with electives. The monthly Pack Meetings are designed to act as a “glue” to bond the Dens together, communicate upcoming events, present features and speakers of interest to the Scouts and most importantly to recognize Scouts for their achievements and to allow all Dens to share their accomplishments with one another.

Pack 369 holds a Pack Function once a month, such as the Pinewood Derby, Cub Scout Cake Bake and the Blue & Gold Banquet. Most of these are intended to include the entire family. To become a member of Pack 369, simply fill out a membershipapplication. Then, START HAVIN’ FUN! For more information, click here for our website or email us at csapack369@gmail.com
