Fogelsville Cub Scout Pack 72

Units of Scouting

A Den is a group of 5 to 9 boys all about the same age and grade.  Every boy is a member of a den.  The Dens are ranked as follows: Tigers (1st Grade), Wolves (second grade), Bears (third Grade), Webelos (fourth & fifth Grades).  We may have 2 or 3 dens per rank, depending on the number of boys who join our Pack.  Each den meets 3 times a month during the school year.  As a den, they learn new things, do activities, go on outings and have fun!  A Den Leader plans out most of the year, but the more parents help, the more successful the den will be.

All of the Dens put together are part of the Pack (Pack 72).  Pack Meetings are held once a month at Camp Spirit in Fogelsville.  Pack meetings usually follow a suggested theme and are a time for boys to be recognized for their accomplishments during the month.  The dens take turns performing a skit, singing songs, leading in flag ceremonies and they even help with the set-up and clean-up! Pack meetings are fun and full of opportunities for your son to grow.

Packs are led by a Cubmaster and a Pack committee.  Like the den leaders, the Cubmaster and assistants are volunteer leaders and are usually family members of boys in the pack.  The pack committee makes plans for pack meetings and activities and takes care of the “business items that are necessary for a pack to operate smoothly. 

Pack committees consist of family members and members of the pack’s chartered organization. The chartered organization is the community organization that is granted a charter by the BSA local council to use the Scouting program.  This chartered organization might be a school, service club, religious group, or other group itereded in youth.  The chartered organization approves the leadership of the pack, provides a meeting place, and operates the pack within the guidelines and policies of that organization and the Boy Scouts of America.

Grades 1 – 5 are part of the Cubscouts Program. A Troop is part of the Boy Scouts program, grade 6 and above.  Troop 72 have their own website! 

A boy may join scouts at anytime.
