About Pack 3942

   

The adult leaders of Pack 3942 welcome you and need your help! We volunteer ourtime 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 and girls in the world, and to provide the volunteer support to make it work.

 

Pack 3942 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, museum sleepovers, canoe trips and many more. 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 and girls ranging from 1st through 5th grade can join Cub Scouts when they turn six years old 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 2016-2017 scouting year: $80 for the first scout in the family and $70 for each sibling.  All new scout recruits get a Pack 3942 t-shirt and are encouraged 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,  Raingutter Regatta, Pinewood Derby, and more.  For more information, contact our Cub Master, Joe Sanner @ jsanner8@gmail.com, James Huening @ jhuening@gmail.com, or our Committee Chairman James Giebelhausen @ jagiebelhausen@gmail.com.

Pack 3942 has over 75 active scouts and their families and is continuing to grow day by day. It is made up of smaller groups called Dens. Boys and girls can join at any point in the age-appropriate den:

 

The Tiger Den is for first grade (or age 6-7) youth and their adult partners. There are five Tiger Cub achievement areas. The Tiger Cub, working with the 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 first grader.

 

The Wolf Den is for youth who are in second grade (or are age 7-8). To earn the Wolf badge, the Cub Scout must pass twelve achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.

 

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

The Scouting BSA Program (formerly known as Boy Scouts) is for 6th grade through 18 YOA.   Cub Scout Pack 3942 feeds into BSA Troop 626.

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.
