Welcome to Pack 127

Our Pack is comprised of "Dens" where boys from 1st to 5th grade meet regularly during the school year for fun and unique activities designed to develop great character, and build confidence, communication, social, and leadership skills!

We welcome and seek the participation of all boys between Kindergarten and 5th Grade who want to live their lives by the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

We can also add you to our email distribution list if you provide us with your name, email address, and phone number, along with the name and grade level of your son. We look forward to hearing from you!

Show 'N Sell Popcorn Fundraiser

Posted on Sep 25 2016 - 10:12pm

At the end of Pack 127 graduation party in June, we watched a home movie showing that the boys of Pack 127 really are heroes. And now Pack 127 (and your community) needs their help! As I discussed at the Pack Meeting / Open House event on Tuesday, 9/20, we are in the middle of our annual popcorn fundraiser. The boys are selling popcorn so that we can fund some incredible service projects this year, as well as have an awesome party, and fund basic operations of the Pack. In particular, we urgently need people to signup for this weekend, Saturday October 1st and Sunday October 2nd when we sell popcorn together as a group at the Wawa at 409 North Route 73, Berlin, between 9am and 3pm on both days. We need 2 to 4 boys to stand at our table in front of the store during each of the 2-hour time slots (9am-11am, 11am-1pm, 1pm-3pm). We also need 1 Adult Leader and 1 Parent Helper to sign up and stay during each of the 2-hour time slots. Other parents may drop off and pick up. Please sign-up here - http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0c4aaea72fa3fc1-sell People WILL buy popcorn and make donations, but only if your son shows up!  If you have never done this before, don't worry, it's easy, you'll be there as part of a group, and we'll show everyone what to do! Your sons will get some experience with public speaking, it will build their confidence, they will learn how to make change, and they'll have fun. If you have any questions, please contact me. Thanks, Michael Suralik, Cubmaster, Pack 127, 856-857-5216

Popcorn Fundraiser GOALS

Posted on Sep 25 2016 - 10:11pm

Here are some of the exciting things that we hope the boys can do with funds raised by selling popcorn.

  • Bring pet food, toys, and blankets to an animal shelter and visit with the animals!
  • Plant a tree in a local park that needs some more shade, and then stay and play at the park together with their Pack 127 friends!
  • Bring a variety of board games to a senior citizen home and spend time playing with the seniors and sing some songs!
  • Go to a local hospital and do something nice for the patients there!
  • Have an awesome party to celebrate! - perhaps a professional Magic Show, or a Laser Tag party, or something similar, with Ice Cream Sundaes.

Through this unique experience, your sons will have a real growth experience - connecting the work that they do selling popcorn to the good deeds that they will do for the community, all while having fun! If you have any questions, please contact me. Thanks, Michael Suralik, Cubmaster, Pack 127, 856-857-5216

What do the Leaders and Committee Do?

Posted on Aug 8 2016 - 10:45pm

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.

Step Up as a Pack Scout Leader

Posted on Aug 8 2016 - 10:44pm

"Pack-level leaders" are all the adult volunteers,OTHER THAN Den Leaders. THIS IS THE TIME TO STEP UP and serve all the families in the Pack. Ideally, Pack-level leaders focus on that role, and do NOT lead a Den in addition. That would be simply too much work, and therefore not good for our program. In addition to the primary Cubmaster, we can have an UNLIMITED number of assistant Cubmasters, plus Committee Members with roles such as: Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Outdoor Activities, Trainer, Public Relations, Outdoor Activity, Membership, and others we can think up. See http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Leaders/About/ThePack/pcom... and http://scoutermom.com/scoutingprogram/cub-scout-pack-committee/ or http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Leaders/About/ThePack.aspx for additional info.  You can start small, and grow into a greater role, or step right out front. Just complete an adult volunteer application if you haven't already. 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 -- it's free and easy. Help the PACK GO AND GROW! Any questions, call Charles Tracey, Chartered Org Rep, at 856-237-6336.
