We’re glad to have you all aboard! I’m currently checking with Council to see if there will be a Den Chief Training coming up soon, otherwise we’ll do the training.
Check back here frequently, this is the section where we’ll post all the Den Chief Information.
If you’d like to attend this Thursday please feel free to come and introduce yourself!
- Patrol – Think of 3 Animals they’d like to use as our patrol! Remember – they’ll be making their own patrol flag, and we’ll have patrol patches. The Black Panther seemed to be a popular one: Example patrol patch:
- Pick 3 Electives they’d like to see us work on! We’ll try to do as many as we can, but I definitely want to do the fun ones first if possible! – See attached list of possible electives, and then look through the Webelos Book for more information related to those electives.
Committee Meeting 10/04/18
Popcorn: Michelle and Rhoel will give a small presentation, we have show n sells on calendar ready to go! Very very important, because this is our only fundraiser. We could possibly have a survival kit fund raiser as well with enough interest.
Updated Dates for Fall-Family Camp. We do our own Fall Family Camp, however, anyone interested in going is welcome to go, $30.00 for every family member. Session I – October 26-28, Session II – November 2-4, Session III – November 9-11
Beach Sweep –November 3rd…. I will be making awards for scouts who participate ☺
Webelos Woods – I’d like our Webelos to do this for sure November 16th – November 18th, $45 for scout, $15.00 for parent. Webelos Woods is the first opportunity for Webelos Scouts to learn what Boy Scouting is all about. A weekend camping trip that introduces them to Boy Scout camping using the patrol method, in a Scout-led outdoor adventure, supervised by adult leaders, and with parents nearby. This weekend event gives the Webelos a little taste of the independence and self-reliance they learn in Boy Scouts. Webelos Woods helps to earn their Arrow of Light and will also help them to cross-over to Boy Scouts.
We need to pick dates for our Pack Fall Family Camp at John Thomas Property. We can pick any of the weekends in November, I’d suggest moving the beach sweep to November 3rd, and picking November 10th for our campout if that makes sense. Let me know though. Otherwise we’ll end up in December for our Camp Out which isn’t bad (could be cold), but we’re doing another in January. We voted and agreed on November 10th.
Importance of Uniforms, Oath, Law. Parents practice at home with your scouts!!
Get T-Shirt Orders going so we can order some more pack T-Shirts! Zip up hoodies? Order your tshirts and we now have zip up hoodies for sale too!!
How can we be less wasteful as a pack? Recycle at banquet dinners…..
Committee positions to be filled: Secretary, Event Coordinator, Christmas Float Committee (3 people) Jamie will be our secretary this year and take over the Committee Chair position next year. Michelle still needs someone to volunteer for Popcorn kernel next year , and we still need Christmas float volunteers.
Paying Dues and other scouting fees…please utilize our website whenever possible to pay any pack related dues. Also, include your scouts name on the transaction so we can post the money to the correct scout’s account.
Treasury Report: Lacey (treasurer) $370.00 is our starting balance for the year.

The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light. Earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy Scout. Scouts must complete four required adventures and three elective adventures to earn the Arrow of Light rank. For each adventure a boy completes, he receives a pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat.
The Arrow of Light badge is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform when a boy graduates into a troop. Adult leaders who earned the Arrow of Light rank when they were young may also show their achievement by wearing a special square knot on their adult uniform.
Webelos dens are for boys who have completed third grade (or reached age 10). Webelos Scouts get to work on the five required Webelos adventures and choose two of the 18 elective adventures that are shared by the Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks. When a boy has done the requirements for an adventure, the Webelos den leader, rather than a parent, approves most of the adventures. For each adventure a boy completes, he receives a pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat. After completing seven adventures, including five required adventures and two elective adventures, a Scout can receive the Webelos badge.
After he has earned the Webelos badge, a Webelos Scout can work on the remaining 18 shared Webelos and Arrow of Light electives until he finishes fourth grade (or turns 11 years old). He can choose elective adventures that may show him new hobbies and teach him skills that will be useful during his Boy Scout years. When he completes an elective adventure, he receives an additional adventure pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat.
