PACK 673

The aims of scouting are character development, leadership development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.  Since 1930, cub scouts has brought parents and organizations together to help children achieve these aims.  Pack 673 has been serving youth and the community since 2002.  Pack 673 is a member of the Wapiti District in the Longs Peak Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  
We are chartered by Hygiene United Methodist Church. The Pack is multi-denominational and welcomes youth and families of all faiths, backgrounds and cultures.  

The Pack primarily serves students from the following schools, but membership is not restricted.



What is a Pack and a Den?

The Pack includes boys and girls in school grades K-5.  Pack meetings are family events held monthly on Friday evenings.  The purpose of pack meetings is to recognize cub scouts for their achievements.
Dens are organized into grade-level of 6-15 boys or girls (2-3 Dens per grade).  Den meetings or outings are scheduled about twice a month, typically on weeknights.
Ranks are the name of each grade level, and also the name of the award the cub scouts work to achieve all year.  Cub Scouts work with their Den to complete the requirements for their grade.  They can join during any grade skipping ranks of previous grades:
  • Kindergarten - Lion
  • Grade 1 - Tiger
  • Grade 2 - Wolf
  • Grade 3 - Bear
  • Grade 4 - Webelos
  • Grade 5 - Arrow of Light (AOL)
Awards

Bobcat All new Cub Scouts except Lions (Kindergartners) will achieve Bobcat first, regardless of the age they start the Cub Scouting.  
Adventures are completed with the Den through the school year.  As each adventure is completed, cubs earn a belt loop or pin to mark their progress. Required adventures are completed with the den, but may be completed at home.  Elective adventures are typically completed at home, but may also be done with the den.
Special awards  include hiking, outdoor ethics, STEM, participating in summer activities, etc.

We use Scoutbook.com to track awards and advancements.
