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.

Cub Scout Adventures is HERE!

Posted on Oct 12 2015 - 8:51pm

Beginning with the start of 2015-16 program year, 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. All adults should look over the LEADER GUIDES.

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

Posted on Oct 12 2015 - 8:51pm

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.

What do the Leaders and Committee Do?

Posted on Sep 15 2015 - 9:31pm

The Pack Committee works "behind the scenes" with the Cubmaster, Den Leaders, and Chartered Organization Representative to make everything happen, to include providing for Cub Scouting activities when school is out. ANY ADULT IS WELCOME TO VOLUNTEER. We are looking for new leaders and committee folks to plan and run Pack meetings and events, to include outdoor, traditional, or new activities. In particular, we need people to TRAIN LEADERS, be ASSISTANT DEN LEADERS, coordinate RECRUITING, arrange PINEWOOD DERBY, coordinate BLUE/GOLD, etc. There are Pack and Scout awards that will recognize our efforts in this area, all BSA training is FREE. Self-identify your interest to Committee Chair Lisa Witherspoon or Chartered Org Rep Charles Tracey at cor@cubscoutingvoorhees.org and DON'T BE SHY! NOTE: see http://usscouts.org/cubscouts/cspack.asp for a reminder of Pack organizational structure.
