Welcome to Pack 127

Pack Meetings are on the third Tuesday of the month at Lions Lake  Park,Voorhees, New Jersey. Family and Siblings are welcome. See what Scouting is all about by attending, then go from there.

Join now and get a taste of Cub Scouting through summer, and start the newly revamped program for 2015-2016 in the fall. Registration fee is due in two installments for 2015-2016, $30 in June, then $30 more by December for a total of $60! Questions? Call 856-528-3774, email recruiting@cubscoutingvoorhees.org or see attached file for all the details about Cub Scouting with Pack 127. 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!

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.

What Does the Registration Fee Pay For?

Posted on Feb 15 2015 - 7:45pm

You may be wondering the $60 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 a Scout manual, Quality Unit Patch, Rank Badges and cards, and up to 5 Belt Loops and Pins. At graduation, he will receive a new neckerchief plus 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 Progress Beads, 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 necessary to cover the balance. 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 . 

Den Leader Resources

Posted on Jan 22 2015 - 9:13pm

Den Leaders Parents alike will be interested in how our Cub Scouting program focuses on the Scout's handbook, organizing den activities into Den Meetings that lead up to achieving Rank by the time Blue & Gold comes around in the early spring. THOSE OF YOU WHO WERE THINKING OF BEING AN ASSISTANT DEN LEADER, now you can easily understand what is required by browsing complete plans for each Den Meeting using your computer.  By following  these plans, Den Leaders can keep themes synchronized with the Pack meetings and stay on track. See http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Leaders/DenLeaderResources/DenandPackMeetingResourceGuide/DenMeetingPlans.aspx for details, including the specific den meeting plans Den Leaders will use this year!   Den Leaders can still add creative touches to Den Meetings without worry about how to get in all the requirements for rank. Remember, our PACK MEETINGS will continue to incorporate our ceremonies, and seasonal traditions.
