I’d like to welcome all our Hillcrest Cub Scouts back to Pack One for the 2017-18 year! I hope you had a great summer. The Pack would also like to invite all new families interested in Cub Scouts to join us for our first Pack Meeting of the year on Tuesday, September 19th at 6:30 in the Hillcrest Gym. This is an opportunity to see what we do, meet our leadership team and ask questions about our program. We’ll also have forms available that evening, too, if you want to register your scout at the same time.
Our scouts will help introduce Pack One to student guests with some games and activities. This way new and returning parents are free to ask questions, meet our pack and submit forms and fees.
Grades 1 – 5 are eligible to join the pack. But if you have an interested kindergartner, please come out to meet us for next year.
Pack One has den meetings the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, at 6:30PM in the Hillcrest gym. On the 3rd Tuesday we have a pack meeting, where all the dens come together for an activity or event. Individual dens may plan some alternative or additional dates for specific outings or activities. Some of our pack meetings may also need date and time flexibility for certain events, too. Pack and den leaders will always coordinate those with our scout families well ahead of time to make sure everybody can participate.
If you have any questions about the event, registration details or Pack One in general, please feel free to email Joe Pelej, pack leader at email@example.com or call 262-720-8493. Go Pack One!
