Pack Activities

A Cub Scout will take part in many activities with his Den as part of his yearly advancement. These activities are based on your age level/rank. Check your Handbook or ask your Den Leader for more information.

A Cub Scout’s journey will also include activities with the whole Pack, typically as part of the monthly Pack meeting. Here are some of the activities that our Pack participates in throughout the year.
