Achievements





One of Scouting’s biggest benefits is the structured exposure to skills and practical knowledge needed in family, career and community. Many of the projects in our Packs help boys earn recognition for their achievements in over 70 different skills/activities.

Cub Scout Advancement

The youngest Scouts can earn emblems for achievement in Family, Den, or Go See It activities.

As Scouts grow, they can earn emblems of recognition for 24 different sports including virtually every ball sport plus skating, fishing and swimming.

Academic accomplishment is also very important with recognition of accomplishment in 16 areas including:

Art – Astronomy – Chess  Citizenship - Collecting Communicating - Computers  Geography - Heritage   Language & Cultures - Map & Compass - Mathematics - Music Science – Weather - Wildlife Conservation

Webelos are the oldest Scoutsand they can earn 20 pins signifying their proficiency in Physical, Mental, Community, Technology, and Outdoor activities.  The Webelos program also prepares boys to join Boy Scouts at the end of fifth grade.

Cub Scouts Packs are NOT . . .

Exclusive – We welcome boys and families of all backgrounds. 

Particularly Religious – Scouting intentionally embraces all religions and offers achievement awards for learning about 25 of the world’s religions. 

Day Care – Even if you can’t help out very much, you should attend the meetings and events and be with your son. Our activities are parent / son oriented.

Who we ARE

How we’re organized

Our packs usually have about 35-40 boys organized by dens.  Each den has 5 to 7 boys of similar grade level. Dens are a great way to make and stay in touch with friends.  Boys may join at any grade.

·         1st – graders are in Tigers

·         2nd – graders are in Wolves

·         3rd – graders are in Bears

·         4th-and 5th – graders are in Webelos

Our leadership is all volunteers made up of mothers and fathers, grandparents, and guardians. 

Meetings

Dens meet two to four times per month where boys do games, crafts and activities toward requirements for achievement awards. Pack meetings are one evening a month, and feature award recognition and fun activities.
