Welcome to Pack 127

Our Pack is comprised of boys from Kindergarten through 5th grade who meet regularly during the school year for fun and unique activities designed to develop great character, build confidence, and develop communication, social, and leadership skills! In short, we prepare young boys to grow up to become great citizens, husbands, fathers, and community leaders. Throughout the year, the boys do some events together with their grade-specific "Den", and some events with the entire Pack.

We believe that every boy would benefit from cub scouting. 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. Scouts is an interfaith organization -- all those who recognize a "Duty to God" are welcome! Pack 127 includes boys from Voorhees and surrounding communities including Berlin, Gibbsboro, and Atco. We reconize that families are very busy. It is not required that boys in Pack 127 attend every meeting or event.       

For answers to all of the most frequently asked questions, please go to to our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page where you will find a lot of great information.

If you are considering cub scouts for your son or would like more information please send email to recruiting@cubscoutingvoorhees.org. 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!

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

Posted by cetracey on Aug 8 2016 - 10:44pm

What is the Trained Leadership criteria?  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. Fast Start is optional if you have already completed leader-specific.

What Does the Registration Fee Pay For?

Posted by cetracey on Aug 8 2016 - 10:43pm

You may be wondering the registration fee covers and why we need fundraising.  Well, here is the answer. There is insurance for events through the Boy Scouts of America and a subscription to a year of Boy’s Life magazine.  Your son is also provided with Rank Badges and cards, and other advancements such as the loops. At graduation, he will receive parent and year participation pins.  There are lots of general needs for the Pack program, also. These include training for our Leaders, Den books, charts and ranks, awards, certificates, belt loops, copying, craft materials for Pack meetings as necessary (glue, glitter, paper, scissors, markers, etc.), supplies for games and ceremonies, ceremonial fixtures, game prizes, paper goods, pencils, pens, and name tags. Fundraising is still necessary to cover much of the costs. Note that special events (Pack or Den) usually have nominal fees which are paid only by those who participate in them. We traditionally have just one Pack fundraiser a year; the BSA Popcorn Sale.  Popcorn is to Cub Scouts as Cookies are to Girl Scouts, and the Scouts are eligible to receive promotional items based on their level of sales. To net about $35 to the Pack, each Scout needs to sell a minimum of $100 of popcorn. Any parent who feels an alternate fundraiser is warranted may volunteer to arrange and conduct one. In the unusual circumstance that a Scout cannot participate in ANY fundraising, there is an option to contribute the $35 .
