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 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.

Pack Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month at 7pm, Lions Lake Park off Route 73, Voorhees. However, NO meeting on 8/19! Instead, ALL ADULTS are welcome to the Annual Planning Conference on 8/21 to give input regarding the Pack program for 2014-2015 -- of course ALL leaders and committee should be there. 

Recruiting is also occurring, see your Den Leader to take care of that. 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 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.

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.

Leaders for Summer Programs

Posted on May 12 2014 - 9:45pm

As we go into the summer, all of us will naturally start thinking of outdoor activities and Scouting offers many opportunities for that. 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. We are looking for new or experienced leaders to organize the "summertime" Pack meetings and events, to include coordinating those summer day camp participants and other outdoor events. There are Pack and Scout awards that will recognize our efforts in this area, but as usual this will require additional commitments from adult volunteers. Self-identify your interest to Cubmaster Ken Kaplan and Committee Chair Lisa Witherspoon. NOTE: see http://usscouts.org/cubscouts/cspack.asp for a reminder of Pack organizational structure. Feel free to email cor@cubscoutingvoorhees.org with questions.

Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program (Belt Loops and Pins)

Posted on May 3 2014 - 12:11pm
Now that the boys are finished with their rank requirements, they can work on belt loops or pins listed at www.boyscouttrail.com/cub-scouts/acad-sports.asp then tell your son's Den Leader when the requirements are complete! It's lots of fun for the whole family to discover new things and your son will be recognized in his Den with something to wear with his uniform. 

Roundtable is a Leader Resource every month!

Posted on Mar 14 2014 - 9:12am

Ever wonder how our Pack finds out about upcoming events for Cub Scouts, and tips on Pack and Den Meetings? White Horse District Roundtable is held every month, and it's a great way for leaders and Pack Committee to consult directly with BSA volunteers and staff. This is just one of the support resources that make it easy to be a Cub Scout leader! Talk to our Commitee Chair, Lisa Witherspoon, about attending to represent the Pack this coming month. "Guest appearances" by parents who might consider being a Den Leader in the future is welcomed!

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!

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.
