Adult volunteers are welcome, even those with no previous experience of Scouting. Use the same phone/email above for those inquiries.

Scouts is an interfaith organization -- all those who recognize a "Duty to God" are welcome! Our Pack is comprised of "Dens" where boys from 1st to 5th grade meet regularly during the school year for fun activities designed to encourage "do your best" behavior at home and in our community.

Due to Boy Scouts of America Youth Protection requirements, this welcome page is the only publicly available information on this website. All parents of Scouts will use the login supplied to them via email after their registration is accepted by Pack 127. Once logged in, you will have full access and be able to add information/comments of your own, but input only what you are comfortable sharing with all other members of the Pack.

Want to help all the Cub Scouts of Pack 127? Be a Scout Leader!

Posted on Mar 23 2015 - 11:56am

Consider being a LEADER with Pack 127! You can start small, and grow into a greater role, just complete an adult volunteer application. Request one through your son's Den Leader, or directly through Lisa Witherspoon, Committee Chair. In the meantime, take the online course for youth protection and even the "leader-specific" courses that align with what you might be interested in. Help the PACK GO AND GROW! Any questions, call Charles Tracey, Chartered Org Rep, at 856-237-6336. Thanks!

Cub Scout Adventures Program is ALMOST HERE!

Posted on Mar 23 2015 - 11:45am

Beginning FALL of 2015, the Cub Scouting Program with respect to earning rank and progressing will be significantly updated to an "adventures" model. Many current elements will remain and be familiar, while others will be retired to transform Cub Scouting into a more consistent and active progression from Tiger to Boy Scouting. ALL PARENTS and LEADERS should view the orientation videos and other materials at http://www.scouting.org/programupdates and bring up any concerns to your Den Leaders, Cubmasters, or Committee. THIS IS VERY EXCITING!

Trained Leadership for Cub Scouts? This is what it means:

Posted on Mar 23 2015 - 11:42am

   The 2015 Journey to Excellence  unit scorecards and spreadsheets are already posted on the National Website .  There has been raised a question concerning the Trained Leadership criteria.  In the Bronze category it states that the direct contact leaders listed must have youth protection and an orientation.  National has clarified what is considered the orientation.  It is the  appropriate Fast Start course for the leader's position.  For example, in a pack a Cubmaster takes the Cubmaster Fast Start while a Den Leaders takes the Den Leader Fast Start. Going forward when your unit registers a new leader or committee member or aperson changes position, the Council Training Committee recommends taking the appropriate Fast Start course. For a brand new leader they can do this when they take their youth protection.  It is a great introduction to their position and will bridge the gap till they take their Position Leader-Specific course. The other question that was raised to National concerned leaders and committee members already trained in their position.  Would they have to take Fast Start if they never had it?  The answer is no.  For JTE purposes a leader already trained in their position would be considered to have satisfied the orientation requirement on the scorecard.  If you have further questions on the Trained Leadership criteria or any other criteria on the JTE contact the Council Training Chair.
