Hello, Cub Scouts!
Announcing the Ice Cream Social
August 20, 2017, 3 – 5pm
Glennwood Elementary, 440 E. Ponce de Leon Ave.
We are holding our first pack meeting of the year, and if you are interested in learning what Scouting is all about – this is the place to be! All are welcome! We will participate in a traditional pack meeting, and afterward everyone, including siblings, can join in on organized games and of course…ICE CREAM!!! This is a great time for you and your son to experience the fun that Scouting offers and learn more about joining us for the year.
Pack 175 welcomes Decatur-area boys in the first through fifth grades to be a part of the 100+ year Scouting tradition!
Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America recently celebrated its centennial year. Cub Scouts were founded in 1930 as a family-oriented program emphasizing fun, hands-on learning.
Decatur’s Pack 175 provides a program that starts with school in August and ends with the Scouts leading the Fourth of July parade through the city. The Pack’s five Dens meet several times each month during the school year and include plenty of big Pack-wide events. We learn outdoor skills when we spend the night at Camp 175 on the shores of Lake Allatoona, participate each January in the MLK Day Service Project, build and race Pinewood Derby cars, recognize the achievements of our Cub Scouts at the annual Blue & Gold Banquet, and celebrate the end of the scouting and school year with a big cookout in May.
We also have a big overnight camping trip each spring, with past trips to the USS Yorktown in Charleston and the US Space and Rocketry Center in Huntsville, and this year we will spend two nights of adventure at Turtle Island learning about the environment and wildlife. There are also opportunities for boys to go to nearby Bert Adams Scout Reservation for day programs in the fall and longer overnight camps in the summer.
If you’re new to Cub Scouts and this sounds like fun, we’d love to have you join Pack 175. Please take some time to browse our web site and learn more about Cub Scouts and how we’re organized. If you have any questions, please email our Cubmaster David Leonard and get added to the Pack email list.
