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.

Rank Progress!

Posted on Feb 19 2013 - 10:47am

Remember, ALL requirements for grade-specific rank badge (tiger, wolf, bear, webelos) need to be complete before Blue and Gold on 4/27, because that is when we award the rank patches with a formal ceremony. If your Scout has "missed" any Den meetings or a review of his book indicates gaps, please discuss with his Den Leader to ensure he is on-track.

PACK 127 CLASS B UNIFORMS are available at Pack Meetings. We will of course take orders for future delivery of specific sizes and items that may be sold out right now, but we need to order over 70 at a time to get the best pricing so we need everyone to put in their order ASAP!

These "uniforms" are used for the times the Scouts are in the woods, making crafts, playing rough and tumble games, etc.  The Class B’s make it easy to identify Pack 127 Scouts, and are comfortable.  Class B’s are also great for the Scout Parent Partner and help make us a unified group.

Pack Planning Conference Time!

Posted on Aug 19 2012 - 9:20pm

It's time for the Pack Planning Conference on 8/21, 7pm to 9pm at Lions Lake Park! This is where all the major decisions for our Program Year are made jointly by leaders and Pack committee, so that everyone can go into the fall with a clear plan. All parents are welcome to give input, and "voting members" will be those who are registered as BSA leaders and committee members so get your Youth Protection training online and those forms in! Though it isn't necessary to finalize every detail of each Pack Meeting at the Planning Conference, or even decide every optional event the Pack wants to try of the many advertised by Council and private venues, it's essential to put the dates on our Pack calendar so each family can have that going into September. See http://cubmaster.org/Leaders/Program.Planning/Annual_Pack_Program_Planning_Conference.pdf for a great summary, though it is a little dated ("Cub Scout Program Helps" is no longer available, replaced with the Den & Pack meeting resources guide online at http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/CubScouts/Leaders/DenLeaderResources/DenandPackMeetingResourceGuide.aspx for your reference).  It is also a reminder of what the essential elements of Pack operations are, namely RECRUITING and a strong DEN PROGRAM with enough leaders to take the boys through their rank with PACK MEETINGS to tie all the Dens together and recognize their progress toward rank. Beyond that, PINEWOOD DERBY, Blue & Gold and the parade are traditional "must do" -- that means everything else (e.g. Cub-o-ree, family camping, aquarium overnight, Riversharks, Ft Mifflin, etc.) should be TENTATIVE and only committed to the extent that enough adult volunteers will support them. Cubmasters, primary Den leaders, and committee must FOCUS on the essential elements of the program and not burn themselves out on optional elements! Lisa Witherspoon (Committee Chair) will be in charge of this meeting.

Books for Library in Ghana, West Africa

Posted on Mar 5 2012 - 12:03am

Our sponsor organization, Ashland Church, just sent all the books collected by our Pack to start a library in Kwabeng, a remote village in Ghana, West Africa.  We received a special thank you letter. See http://www.africanbookchallenge.org/ for more information about this project which spreads "good will" to kids far away who will now be able to read the books we sent, otherwise many of them would have nothing other than their schoolbooks to read.

Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO)

Posted on Dec 18 2011 - 7:59pm

I encourage all Pack 127 parents to attend this training for your own knowledge of “camping the cub scout way.” The Pack will reimburse registration fees, and process your “leader application” as a Committee Member or Assistant Cubmaster so you can help lead our Pack camping program. EVERY Pack camping trip MUST have at least one leader who has attended BALOO. Details: Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) is a one-day training event that introduces leaders and parents to the skills needed to plan and conduct pack outdoor activities, particularly pack camping. Participants who complete this training course will: Understand the focus of the Cub Scout level of the BSA outdoor program. Gain the skills needed to plan and carry out a successful Cub Scout-level overnight activity. Learn more about the resources available from the BSA for carrying out this activity. This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a pack campout.
