About Pack 3957

The adult leaders of Pack 3957 welcome you and need your help! We volunteer our time to make scouting work for our kids and yours. There is no special knowledge required for adult leadership in scouting; previous scout experience is helpful but not necessary. What is necessary is a desire to affiliate with the number one organization for boys in the world, and to provide the volunteer support to make it work.

Pack 3957 helps the community with local food drives and helps kids builds skills with projects, camping trips, and special events like the Raingutter Regatta, Pinewood Derby and the exciting new Space Derby. Every Memorial Day, the pack places American flags on Civil War soldiers’ graves at Rosehill Cemetery and marches in a parade nearby. We also organize trips to sporting events, field trips to museums, community service projects, the Blue & Gold Banquet, and more!

Boys ranging from first through fifth grade can join Cub Scouts when they turn six and complete kindergarten.  Each age group has its own “den” with dedicated leaders, projects and meetings.  The entire pack, along with parents, brothers and sisters, comes together once a month at Pack Night for recognition and family fun featuring contests, special achievement awards and more.

New scouts and returning scouts can pay their membership fee for the 2011-2012 scouting year: $65 for new scouts, $50 for returning scouts and $40 for each additional sibling.  All new scout recruits get a chance to attend special events like the Push Cart Derby, the annual Outdoor Games competition in late October, den meetings, field trips, camping trips, Independence Day parades,  and more.  For more information, contact us at pack3957@hotmail.com

Pack 3957 is made up of smaller groups called Dens. Boys can join at any point in the age-appropriate den:

The Tiger Den

is for first grade (or age 6-7) boys and their adult partners. There are five Tiger Cub achievement areas. The Tiger Cub, working with his adult partner, completes 15 requirements within these areas to earn the Tiger Cub Badge. These requirements consist of an exciting series of indoor and outdoor activities just right for a boy in the first grade.

The Wolf Den

is for boys who are in second grade (or are age 7-8). To earn the Wolf badge, a boy must pass twelve achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.

The Bear Den

is for boys who are in third grade (or are age 8-9). There are 24 Bear achievements in four categories. The Cub Scout must complete 12 of these to earn the Bear badge. These requirements are somewhat more difficult and challenging than those for Wolf rank.

The Webelos I Den

is for boys who are in the fourth grade (or are age 9-10) and The Webelos II Den is for boys who are in the fifth grade (or are age 10-11). As he completes the requirements found in the Webelos Scout Book, he will work on activity badges, attend meetings led by adults, and become familiar with the Boy Scout requirements—all leading to the Arrow of Light Award, the highest award in Cub Scouting.

The Boy Scout Program is for 6th grade through 18 YOA.

Pack Night occurs once a month during the school year and is a time to gather the entire Pack.  It is an event to captivate the scout's attention, reward them for their achievements completed toward rank advancement, inspire them to continue scouting, and have a lot of laughs with songs and skits.

The whole family is welcome at Pack Nights and many of the special events.
