Cub Scouts is a Blast
No matter what grade you are in, first through fifth, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, shoot a bow and arrow (archery). Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? Built a birdhouse? Played Ultimate? Hiked? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts!
As a Cub Scout, you will be part of your own pack. The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den has about six to eight boys. All of the Cub Scouts in your den are in the same grade and may even go to the same school. The pack gets together once a month at Heritage Elementary to have fun with the whole group.
Pack 1163 conducts a wide variety of exciting activities year round, including the traditional Pinewood Derby, the Blue & Gold Banquet, as well as hikes, camping trips, picnics, community service projects, and other fun events.
During the month, smaller “dens”, comprised of 6-8 boys, meet separately. These dens are organized according to age: Tiger Cubs (1st graders), Wolves (2nd graders), Bears (3rd graders), and Webelos I and II (4th and 5th graders, respectively). Den meetings focus on doing age specific activities and earning advancement and awards through field trips, hands-on projects, etc. You can join any time you are in elementary school, it is never too late!
Dens meet about three times a month throughout the school year, and each den picks its own meeting time and location. Check out the Den Pages for more information about location and contacts.
