Who We Are

Pack 673 has been serving youth and the community since 2002.  Pack 673 is a member of the Mountain View District in the Longs Peak Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

The Pack primarily serves students from the following schools, but membership is not restricted.
We are chartered by Hygiene United Methodist Church. The Pack is non-denominational and welcomes youth and families of all faiths, backgrounds and cultures.

See information about signing your son or daughter up for Cub Scouts on our Join page.  More information for families with scouts in Pack 673 can be found in our Pack Welcome Guide.


Pack and Den Structure

The Pack includes boys and girls in school grades K-5, and is organized into grade-level Dens of 6-15 boys or girls (2-3 Dens per grade).  Pack meetings are family events held monthly on Friday evenings, and separate Den meetings or outings are scheduled about twice a month, typically on weeknights.

The Pack is sponsored by the Chartered Organization and run by the parent volunteer Pack Committee.  Each Den has a Den Leader, Assistant Den Leader, and parent involvement.  Leaders at the Pack level, including the Committee Chair, Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, Treasurer, Awards Chair, Membership Chair, and Pack Trainer plan Pack meetings and events.

Advancement

All new Cub Scouts except Lions (Kindergartners) will achieve Bobcat first, regardless of the age they start the Cub Scouting adventure.  Boys and girls can start at any grade and skip any ranks below their current grade level.  They work with their Den to complete the rank requirements for their grade:
  • Kindergarten - Lion
  • Grade 1 - Tiger
  • Grade 2 - Wolf
  • Grade 3 - Bear
  • Grade 4 - Webelos
  • Grade 5 - Arrow of Light (AOL)
Each rank is achieved by completing the requirements of a number of “Adventures” as a Den through the school year.  As each adventure is completed, boys earn a belt loop or pin to mark their progress.  In addition, patches and awards can be earned by logging hiking miles, learning about outdoor ethics, experiencing the outdoors, and more.
