Welcome to the Pack 127 Website!

Click on the file attachment below for information if you are a boy (or his parent) thinking about joining the Pack! Scouts is an interfaith organization -- all those who recognize a "Duty to God" are welcome! Our Pack is comprised of "Dens" where same-age boys meet regularly during the school year for fun activities designed to encourage "do your best" behavior at home and in our community.

Pack Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month at 7pm, Lions Lake Park off Route 73, Voorhees. We meet informally in the summer meeting to welcome prospective new and also returning scouts (entering 1st through 5th grade in the fall) so come on out. Once paid and registered, boys receive a RANK MANUAL and can then begin completing rank requirements right awayJoining fee for the 2014-15 program year is $30 now plus $30 more by September 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.

Due to Boy Scouts of America Youth Protection requirements, this welcome page is the only publicly available information on this website. All Cubs and their parents use the login supplied to them via email after their registration fee is accepted. 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.

2014 Pinewood Derby RESULTS

Posted on Mar 3 2014 - 4:46pm

Thank you for helping make the Pinewood derby a success.  It was a fun day for the boys, and everyone left with a trophy. See attached for detailed timings of each car, and the "key" to associate scouts with car numbers. Will hopefully be able to post the "design" winners as well, need to track down that info [webmaster].Hmm, anyone notice the participation trophy had 2013 printed on it? While putting everything away today, Denise noticed the printing error. She has contacted Crown Trophy and they are reprinting the sticker for us, will be distributed via Den Leaders to Scouts soon. Thank you for your patience!

What Does the Registration Fee Pay For?

Posted on Nov 7 2013 - 2:27pm

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 . 

Medical Form for ALL SCOUTS and LEADERS due now!

Posted on Nov 7 2013 - 2:25pm

Part of keeping our Scouts safe includes the Pack having updated Medical information on each Scout and Leader. This is a confidential way to share important details that might effect Den activities, such as food allergies or special situations, and serves as the "permision slip" for Scouting activities.  Please print out the Medical Form at http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/parts_ab.pdf and note this does NOT require a doctor's signature. Turn in to Den Leader as soon as possible. Den Leaders will hold Scout forms and bring to all events. Committee Chair will hold forms for adult leaders who are not Den Leaders.

Den Leader Resources

Posted on Oct 27 2013 - 11:43pm

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 A 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.
