Den meetings start at 6:30pm on Monday evenings. Each scout finds their meeting room, where they will gather with scouts of their same grade. During this time, they open the meeting with the pledge of allegiance, reciting the scout oath and law, and prayer. Then they go in to some games or fun activities that relate to the elective or rank requirement being covered that evening. Typically den time runs for about an hour and finish around 7:30pm and everyone is gone no later than 8:00pm.
Pack 747 meets weekly during the school year on Monday evenings at 6:30pm. There are occasional Monday’s that do not have meetings scheduled (after a campout, holidays, school breaks, etc). You can expect about 9-11 den meetings, two to three pack meetings, and one campout per semester.
We understand that life gets busy, and there are times a scout may miss some den meetings. The scout can work on any missed activities at home and report back to their den leader to get credit for the items. We recommend keeping up with any missed rank requirements. However, make up work for electives that are done in den meetings is totally optional.
Please do not let money be the reason for not participating in Cub Scouts. There are several options that can be worked out, based on the situation. There is also financial assistance available through the Middle Tennessee Council. We can help guide you through that process.
No. Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America—so in that sense, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are both members of the same organization. However, they are entirely different programs: Cub Scouting is a family-oriented program designed specifically to address the needs of younger boys through 5th grade. Boy Scouts serves 6th graders and up.
Pack 747 consists of boys in the 1st-5th grade. Families will be able to participate in various activities (campouts, Pack meetings, pinewood derby, banquets, etc.) But only boys in those grades will be registered with the Pack.
Find any of the Pack leaders at our meetings or events, and ask questions you may have. We would love to help out!
