Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 269!
The ten purposes of Cub Scouting are:
· Character Development
· Respectful Relationships
· Spiritual Growth
· Personal Achievement
· Good Citizenship
· Friendly Service
· Sportsmanship and Fitness
· Fun and Adventure
· Family Understanding
· Preparation for Boy Scouts
The Pack is comprised of six Dens:
Lion Den - Kindergarten Bear Den - 3rd grade
Tiger Den – 1st grade Webelos 1 Den – 4th grade
Wolf Den – 2nd grade Webelos 2/Arrow of Light Den – 5th grade
The Pack (all 6 dens) meets once a month for a Pack Meeting. This is held at Parkmont Elementary School on the last Wednesday of the month from 7-8pm in the MUR room. At the Pack meeting, all family members are encouraged to participate. There are often crafts and games that siblings can join in as well. The scouts may do skits or songs. Awards are handed out at the Pack meeting. The purpose of pack meetings is to inform everyone about upcoming events, recognize the scouts' hard work, entertain everyone and help the scouts learn how to handle being in front of large groups. Currently, Pack 269 is co-ed with both boys and girls in scouts.
Dens meet more often.
- Lions meet once a month at 7pm on the 1st Wednesday of the month.
- Tigers meet once a month at 7pm on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
- Wolves, Bears, and Webelos 1 , and Arrow of Light scouts meet twice a month on Wednesdays at 7pm.
Den meetings are held at the MUR room at Parkmont Elementary School. Den meetings are both fun and educational. The activities they complete are recognized at the Pack meetings.:
The calendar is packed with many things to do. As a pack we have a yearly overnight (this year we spent the night at the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco), an annual camp out for families, our pinewood derby model car races, service projects, hikes, and more. We don’t expect you to make them all. We understand that you have a life outside of Cub Scouts.
In their dens, the boys work toward earning their “rank.” They work on the 10 Cub Scouting ideals during this process. Each level has a different set of requirements. Some achievements are worked on at home, but mostly rank is earned through the den. Boys are encouraged to earn their rank but it is not required. They will graduate to the next level in June whether or not they earned their rank.
"Yes, extracurriculars do count in the admissions process. … Community service, part-time employment, forensics, Boy/Girl Scouts ... all tell us what you might be expected to 'share with your fellow classmates' should you enroll at our institution."
