Welcome to Pack 449
We are pleased that you are considering joining our Cub Scout Pack. It is our hope that you and your son will find your time with the pack a rewarding and fun experience in which to continue or begin your Scouting adventure.
We have an active Cub Scout program, with Pack meetings every month, Den meetings and other experiences throughout the year. We encourage attendance at as many activities as possible. Many of these activities will help the boys advance through the Cub Scout ranks.
Throughout the year, each Den takes responsibility for a Pack meeting. This is your Pack, and taking responsibility to run it will allow both boys and parents to fully participate in scouting ideals. The Cubmaster often provides the theme for the meeting, and District Roundtables can supply plenty of ideas for activities.
We want parents to be active as well! We have numerous positions available, ranging from a once-a-year commitment, to Den Leader to Pack administration. We have a Pack Committee made up of leaders and other adults, and that is always open to parents that usually meets on the third Wednesday of the month to discuss and plan events and the fund raising necessary to help the pack go 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 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 boys do.
