About Our Pack

The Pack

We are part of the Occoneechee Council (http://ocscouts.org/Contact), Crosswinds District.  We meet on Wednesday nights from 7pm to 8pm at Genesis United Methodist Church.  

 

The Dens

Pack 152 is an boys only pack, with approximately 50 scouts in Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos, and Arrow of Light dens, serving boys in kindergarten through fifth grades.

Den meetings are held weekly throughout the traditional school year.  Dens are led by a Den Leader, Assistant Den Leader, and a parent assigned to that week's meeting plan.  Scouts are expected to attend meetings in uniform (we suggest a t-shirt worn beneath the dress uniform shirt).  We uphold the scouting philosophy of keeping it fun and safe to maintain an environment where Cubs can learn and grow.

 

The Pack Activities

For Scouts and their families, Pack 152 has monthly hikes, monthly pack meetings, and year-round events.  Registration for events is web-based and allows us to effectively plan resources prior to an event.  Our typical calendar includes the following events:

January - Pinewood Derby

February - Blue and Gold Banquet

March - Spring camp-out

April - Community Service Project and the Council Cuboree

May - End of Year Picnic

June - Derby (Raingutter Regatta, Rocket Derby, or similar)

July - Cubmaster's Event Choice

August - Welcome Back Picnic

September - Popcorn kick-off and Beginning of Year Activities

October - Fall camp-out 

November/December - Cary Holiday Parade and Holiday Pack meeting

 

Getting Started

We'd like every scout to have a navy blue (Tigers, Wolf, Bear) or khaki (Webelos and Arrow of Light) uniform shirt. Lions have the options of wearing the navy blue shirt or a Lion t-shirt.  Council and Pack patches are provided upon payment of Registration and dues.   Scout Shop location and hours of operation may be found by accessing the link (http://ocscouts.org/Contact).

Registration and dues are collected upon joining our Pack, then annually when we re-charter in January.  We encourage Scouts to subscribe to Boys Life magazine to enhance their Scouting experience.

 

Scout Parents

Behind every successful Scout is an active Parent.  Our Parents volunteer on either a weekly (Den Leaders), monthly (Committee Members), or event or task-specific basis (Assistant Cubmasters/Scout Parents).  All parents are encouraged to take Youth Protection Training (https://myscouting.scouting.org/Pages/eLearning.aspx).

Many of our Cubs go on to join area Boy Scout Troops prior to entering 6th grade.  Boy Scout Troop 152 operates out of Genesis United Methodist Church on Tuesday evenings.  Their web-site has additional information.  http://www.troop152cary.org/
