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 multi-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 parent volunteers who serve as the Pack Committee.  
Den Leaders: Den Leader, Assistant Den Leader, and parents or adult partners. 
Pack Leaders: Committee Chair, Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, Treasurer, Awards Chair, Membership Chair, New Member Coordinator, Pack Trainer, and Committee Members.

Advancement

All new Cub Scouts except Lions (Kindergartners) will achieve Bobcat first, regardless of the age they start the Cub Scouting adventure.  Then they work with their Den to complete the rank 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)
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, cubs earn a belt loop or pin to mark their progress.  In addition, special awards can be earned by hiking, learning about outdoor ethics, learning about science, participating in summer activities, etc.
