The Law of the Pack

The Cub Scout follows Akela.

The Cub Scout helps the pack go.

The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.

The Cub Scout gives goodwill.

Thank you to all the parents who have stepped forward to volunteer and "help the pack go"

We are in desperate need of a committee chair, as Pat Sandel, who has done a fabulous job for the last few years, is retiring from the position.

The Pack is like a coin operated machine: You will get as much out of it as you are willing to put into it. This position is critical to the well being of the pack, and the adult leaders who are currently serving, often already fill one than more role, so we need a new volunteer to take this on.

Please speak with your Den leader or Giselle if you're willing to help us out in ANY capacity.

Committee Chair:

The pack committee chairperson’s main responsibilities are to:

  • Maintain a close relationship with the chartered organization representative, keeping this key person informed of the needs of the pack that must be brought to the attention of the organization or the district.

  • Report to the chartered organization to cultivate harmonious relations.

  • Confer with the Cubmaster on policy matters relating to the Cub Scout program and the chartered organization.

  • Calling and presiding at pack leaders' meetings

  • Assigning duties to, and training, committee members - Planning for pack charter review, roundup, and re-registration

  • Conduct the annual pack program planning conference and pack leaders' meetings.

  • Complete Pack Committee Fast Start Training and Cub Scout Leader Basic Training.

  • Ask the committee to assist with recommendations for Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, den leader coaches, Webelos den leaders, and den leaders, as needed.

  • Recognize the need for more dens, and see that new dens are formed as needed.

  • Work with the chartered organization representative to provide adequate and safe facilities for pack meetings.

  • Appoint a committee member or other registered adult to be responsible for Youth Protection training.
