Our Philosophy:

Pack 334 was established with the idea to form a pack where fun and family involvement were key ingredients. After all... if the kids aren't having fun, they won't continue to attend! That's not to say that the kids won't learn a lot--they'll learn about everything from camping to community involvement to sporting activities, and much more. We hope that they will form lasting friendships with the kids in their den--and that the families of those kids will have the chance to meet and form great relationships based on shared experiences, goals, and triumphs.

Why Become a Cub Scout

Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys, and more recently girls, through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys and girls who are in Kindergarten through fifth grade (or 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting.

The 10 purposes of Cub Scouting are:

  1. Character Development
  2. Spiritual Growth
  3. Good Citizenship
  4. Sportsmanship and Fitness
  5. Family Understanding
  6. Respectful Relationships
  7. Personal Achievement
  8. Friendly Service
  9. Fun and Adventure
  10. Preparation for Scouts BSA
What is Involved?

New Cub Scouts join our pack and are assigned to a den, usually a group of six to eight boys or girls of the same gender.

Lion Cubs (kindergarteners), Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth and fifth-graders). Each den meets 1-2 times each month for Den meetings and other activities.

Once a month, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of our Cubmaster and pack committee. Also, several times each year, the pack arranges for camping and other outdoor activities.

Please note: Cub Scouts is not a "drop-off" activity. A parent or guardian should accompany each scout at activities to serve as his or her teacher and helper (also known as the scout's "Akela").

Pack 334 holds many of its pack meetings at the Family of God Lutheran Church. Den meetings are arranged by the families of each Den and are usually at the Family of God Lutheran Church, or other local meeting spots. There are also some outings at various locations in the vicinity (such as parks, museums, tours of local businesses, etc.).

Can my child join if s/he has a disability or special need?

Absolutely. The Cub Scout's motto is "Do Your Best" which means each child is encouraged to perform to the best of his or her ability. If you have any questions about your child's special needs, contact our Committee Chair at: committeechair@cub334.org.
