Scout Pack 152 strives to provide an active, fun, safe, and family centered Cub Scout program. We are based out of Section Elementary School but also currently serve Prairie View Elementary School as well. Even though our primary recruitment drive is held in September, boys and girls from first grade through fifth are welcome to join Pack 152 at any time during the year.
We are a very active Cub Scout Unit, with Pack and Den meetings every month, along with camping trips and outings throughout the year. We encourage attendance at as many activities as possible but understand our scouts' lives are busy and that they also may have commitments to other groups such as sports teams, church groups, and clubs. With that in mind, many of our group activities are designed to help the scouts advance through the Cub Scout ranks or earn belt loops and badges.
So what is a Pack? What is a Den? Cub Scouts are first organized by grade level into Dens, a Den is made up of about 10 boys or girls of the same grade level which are usually from the same school. A Pack is made up of all of the Dens from that school put together. Each Den has it's own leadership and holds its own meetings with age/rank appropriate activities at time/place chosen by the Den leader. In addition to Den meetings and activities, The Pack meets monthly in the gym at Section School, typically on the 3rd Wednesday of the month during the school year. The Pack meetings are run by the Cubmaster and Assistant Cubmasters with assistance from an assigned Den (rotating).
The Cubmaster usually provides the theme for the Pack meetings. District Roundtables and the internet can supply plenty of ideas/resources for planning Den meeting activities and programs.
We want parents to be active as well! There are many positions available, ranging from a once-a-year commitment, to Den Leader to Pack administration. We have a Pack Committee made up of our leaders and other involved adults. The Committee Meeting is always open to parents and usually meets on the first Tuesday evening of the month to discuss plans, events, and the fund raising necessary to help the pack operate and to support the plans made by Den leaders.
We encourage parents to consider a role in which they can best use their talents and skills (i.e., Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Fund raising, Advancement, Activities Chairs or as an assistant to a position). And not to worry, there are plenty of training classes to help you along if you feel you don't know what to do. Remember, all of the current adult leaders started out where you are - so just jump right up and ask the Cubmaster or another leader how you can help. And parents - don't tell the scouts - but sometimes we have as much or more fun than the kids do.
