Welcome to Fort Worth, Texas - CUB SCOUT PACK 422!

Cub Scouting means "doing." Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. These events may be with their families, Den (boys of the same age or grade) or the whole Pack.

Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the Den meetings and the monthly Pack meetings.

Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Uniform, the Scout Oath and Law, the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy's sense of belonging.

Use "Contact Us" to get information to join our pack anytime and see what fun and adventures await your son!

CROSSOVER WAS A HUGE SUCCESS - NOW IT'S TIME TO PLAN FOR NEXT YEAR!

Posted by bmorgan on May 12 2017 - 12:44pm

Crossover was great!  So proud to be part of this group of great boys and dads - tremendous!

With Crossover behind us, it is now time to plan for next year.  Our annual Planning Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, 5/16/17, at 6:00pm at WSES - Science room #307, NOT in the cafeteria (the Kindergarten has a musical on the same night I believe).  

Our primary focus will be on planning the next year's activities, including budget, for our Cub Scout Pack, including but not limited to Summer time events (Tamara Maya and Theresa Meier coordinating - thank you Tamara); Campouts (Angie Septer coordinating - thank you Angie); Rocket Launch (Jill Pezzuto coordinating - thank you Jill); Pinewood (Brandon Yancey coordinating - thank you Brandon), and B&G (we still need coordinators for B&G).

This is your opportunity to provide input on what you would like our Pack to be doing in the coming year.  Also, just an FYI for our newer members, the Dens don't typically meet during the Summer time.  Typically, just the Pack meets about once per month to achieve the Summertime Pack Award, but that's about it.  That doesn't mean your Den is not allowed to meet, just that there are no requirements that you have to work on until September, i.e. the Den meetings typically follow the school year.

This meeting is for parents only, so if you must bring your kids, please make sure they have something to do to keep them occupied and not disturb our meeting, so we can get the work done and get out ASAP.  We do not want kids running the halls because the school has other meetings/events on that same night. 

On a very positive note, Camp Card sales were a huge success with total sales of $7,910 (791 cards) sold +$107 donations = $4,062 placed into the Scout Accounts of 31 boys (vs. $2,330 last year for 18 boys) for use at day camp, pack dues, Scout store stuff, etc., etc.  If you're not sure if something would be covered by this, just email your question to me and/or Kelly Morgan.  To use your Scout Account, just submit your receipt with reimbursement form attached to Kelly Morgan, Treasurer, for reimbursement.  When we collect dues in September, you will just indicate at that Pack meeting that you want to apply your son's Scout Account money to pay his dues.  To be clear, the Camp Card sales money goes to the individual Scout, i.e. the Pack does not get any of that money.  The Pack money comes from dues payments and Popcorn sales.

Thanks so much for your help.

    THE LATEST FOR PACK 422!

    Posted by bmorgan on Mar 14 2017 - 2:23pm

    1.       Our Next Pack meeting is a STEM EVENT is Tuesday, March 21, 2017, at 6:30pm at WSES Cafeteria, but the STEM stations will be run by staff from the Longhorn Activity Center.   I will have Camp Cards to hand out at that time to parents.  If you want them sooner, just email me to pick them up before Wednesday, 3/8/17.  Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until the 3/21 Pack meeting, due to Spring Break.
     
    2.       Camp Cards are an easy way for your Scout to earn money and pay his own way – each card is sold for $10, and your son gets $5 of that back in his Scout Account (that’s a 50% return on the sale – best fundraiser out there that directly benefits your Scout) to be used for Pack membership dues in September, Scout camp gear, Scout Store stuff, or Day Camp this Summer.  There are upcoming Show-n-Sell opportunities to sell the cards in front of Tom Thumb and Albertson’s (making it a much easier sell because you are right there with the card that is immediately worth $10 off of a $100 purchase, so if they were going to spend $100 anyway, the card is basically free to the customer).  To sign up for show-n-sells, go to: http://signup.com/go/UNxGa3, review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you like, and you will NOT need to register an account or keep a password on SignUp.com.
    3.       Camping:  Our next Campout is at Dinosaur Valley State Pack in Glen Rose, TX, from April 21st – 23rd – please, please register for this campout, so we make sure we have enough sites and food for Saturday night, at: http://www.cubpack422.com/node/3045 or just go to the Calendar on the www.Cubpack422.com website and click on the event date.
     
    4.       Crossover:  Our annual rank advancement ceremony (Crossover) is planned for May 7th from 4pm – 6pm at Keller’s Bear Creek Park at the bridge near the pavilion.   Bring your camera, chairs, and tissues.  Please, please make sure to get your son’s rank advancement requirements entered into Scoutbook.com by May 1st, and hopefully sooner than that, to ensure he receives his rank advancement at Crossover.  If you have any questions in that regard, please feel free to email/contact your Den Leader or me ASAP.
     
    5.       Volunteers currently needed as Coordinator/Planner for the following events:  Summertime events (June, July, and August), Rocket Launch (September), Pinewood (January), and Blue & Gold (February). So, please email me with the event that you would like to work on ASAP - No Den Leaders - We have a lot of parents in this Pack, and we need your help to make our Pack events fun for our boys. Many hands make light work, so please lend a hand.

    Dads and Lads Cake Bake Rules:

    SCOUT SUNDAY at Heritage Church of Christ

    Posted by bmorgan on Feb 3 2017 - 12:02pm

    A Scout is Reverent: Scout Sunday Observance

    The Pack will participate in Scout Sunday at the Heritage Church of Christ (our Charter Organization).  Please arrive by 8:30am, which is 30 minutes prior to the first service at 9:00am.  The Scouts may be asked to act as greeters, hold doors open, and/or hand out bulletins.  This year Scouts will NOT be called forward to be recognized - just FYI - they had a scheduling conflict with their planned service, so we are just going to be there to provide assistance as needed and attend the service. All Scouts and adult Scout leaders are asked to be in their Class A uniforms.

    If you prefer to attend your own church service, rather than Heritage, we encourage your son to wear his Class A uniform with respect to Scout Sunday, which celebrates the founding of the BSA on 2/8/1910 and exemplifies the reverence required of a Scout.

    The Boy Scouts of America have designated the Sunday preceding February 8th as Scout Sunday and the following Saturday is designated as Scout Sabbath. The United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church (USA) celebrate Scout Sunday on the second Sunday of February so as not to conflict with Transfiguration Sunday.

    The day is meant to mark the founding of the Scouts in the United States. Observation varies by unit and locale. Scouts go to their places of worship in uniform and help with the service.

    In the United States, Scouting has been used by churches, synagogues, and many other religious organizations as part of their youth ministries. At least 50 percent of all Scouting units are chartered to religious groups. These observances offer an opportunity for congregations to honor Scouts and Scouters, as well as to learn more about the value of Scouting as a youth program.

    Attending Scout Sunday helps to complete the Duty to God requirement for your rank. Thank you.
