The calendar has the details for our currently planned meetings and activities, but the following gives an overview of a typical Scouting year in Pack 104. In addition to the season-based activities described below, Pack 104 participates in multiple service projects that benefit the community (e.g. Scouting for Food) and our Chartered Organization (e.g. mulching).
While Cub Scouts can join any time, joining in the fall gives new Scouts the best opportunity to stay on track with earning their rank as this is the time when the Den-focused program really starts up.
In Pack 104, the fall typically includes our fall family campout and the main fundraiser.
During the winter, Cub Scouts continue to work hard on their rank requirements, but Pack 104 also has a few big Pack activities.
In December, we have a holiday party. In January, we have our Pinewood Derby. In February, we have our Blue & Gold Banquet.
In the spring, Cub Scouts are wrapping up their rank requirements and working on electives and other awards.
In Pack 104, the spring typically includes our spring family campout, crossover (where our 5th graders move on to Scouts BSA troops), and rank advancement.
The Scouting year largely follows the school year, so during the summer, there is a break from the Den-focused rank advancement type activities. However, that doesn't mean there's no fun to be had.
In Pack 104, we offer at least two Pack-wide events in each summer month. Typical summer activities include Day Camp, Summer Camp, an overnighter and pool party, and either a Raingutter Regatta or Space Derby.
