When Does Pack 33 Meet?
Our dens generally meet every Wednesday evening from 6:30-7:30. Each den schedules their own “go-see-it” experiences where they fulfill citizenship and activity requirements by visiting locations such as police stations and libraries and learning how to contribute to their communities through these valuable services. Cubs always work with their adult partner (“Akela”) at scouting events. Once a month we have a pack meeting where we hand out awards, recognize achievements, put on skits, sing songs, tell jokes and have a loud, fun time. (Did we mention LOUD?)
Tell Me About Cub Scouting
Organization: The Pack is the entire group of scouts, leaders and families. Your Cub Scout is also a member of a Den. Dens are made up of boys of the same rank (in the same grade) and has its own Den Leader. The Committee meets each month to plan pack functions.
Handbooks & Uniforms: Scouts need a handbook for their rank level (Tiger, Wolf, Bear, or Webelos). Purchase at the scout shop in Norton MA, East Providence RI or through the Pack. Uniforms are required from the “waist up”: neckerchief/slide for their rank; blue shirt (or tan for Webelos); Narragansett council patch; purple World Crest patch; 33 numeral patch(es). Other items are optional. Wear blue or khaki shorts/pants with uniform.
Fundraising & Camp Accounts: Pack funds are raised at “Show and Sell” and individual Popcorn fundraisers in the fall – all scouts are expected to participate in uniform at least twice to fulfill their obligation to the Pack.
Electronic Devices Policy: Scouts are not allowed to use electronic devices at any scouting event.
Registration Fee: Covers badge of rank, immediate recognition emblem/adventure beltloops, service star, five segments, national registration fee/insurance, derby vehicle, summertime award, , Webelos adventure loops, selected Narragansett Council activities that Pack 33 attends as a group. Fee does not cover handbook, uniform.
Cub Scouting is a family experience and each boy gets much more out of it when his family participates fully with him. We ask you to pitch in and lend us your unique skills.
There are many resources for this journey. All of our leaders are knowledgeable and capable and have passed scouting’s rigorous background check. We are a safe and inclusive environment focused on a positive experience for every scout.
Here’s to a safe, fun, and educational year in scouting!
