Pack 1151 Services Dominion Trail, Discovery, Steuart Weller, and Newton-Lee
We're so excited that your family is joining our cub pack! And now that Cub Scouts is open to both boys and girls even more youth will have access to the awesome character development and values-based leader ship opportunities that Scouting provides. Cub Scout is more than just an activity. It's an adventure!
At the local level, cub scouts are grouped into a PACK. Each PACK has multiple DENS, which are determined by grade level and gender, as follows:
Kindergarten - Lion Den
1st grade - Tiger Den
2nd grade - Wolf Den
3rd grade - Bear Den
4th grade - Webelos Den
5th grade - Webelos/Arrow of Light Den
The pack is lead by a cub master and assistant cub master, as well as, other leadership volunteer positions. The dens are lead by den leaders. Parent attendance and involvement is encouraged for each scout at all levels, but is required for the Lion and Tiger Dens.
Each den will complete requirements throughout the year to earn advancement to the next den level. Our pack uses an online program, Scoutbook, to track requirement completion. We also post all events and activities on the Scoutbook Calendar.
As the cub scout program is a national program, there are multiple levels of leadership above the pack level. For more more information, visit the Boy Scouts of America page.
On the first Thursday of the month, the pack gathers at Dominion Trail Elementary. Due to the ongoing COIVD-19 pandemic, pack meetings are held outside at DTES if weather permits.
7:00-8:00 pm The Pack Meeting - The cub master leads the meeting with announcements and reminders about registration, fundraising, and upcoming scout events. Then each den leader will present scouts with awards that have been earned in recent den meetings and/or at home. Scouts may help perform an opening and closing ceremony and participate in any songs or skits that are planned.
Each den meets once or twice a month to work on a variety of advancement adventure belt loops and pins. Each Den Leader will establish their meeting time and place.

Lions: 2nd Thursday of the month
Tigers: 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month
