Welcome to Cub Scouting
Cub Scouting is the program by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) developed specially for boys and girls entering the K through 5th grades.
The goals of the program are to help kids build character, learn about good citizenship, and develop personal fitness through fun activities. Boys and girls who go through the scouting program develop leadership skills through community service and by giving goodwill toward others. Over the years, Scouts have continued on to become well-known US presidents, astronauts, professional athletes, actors, journalists, and philanthropists among other occupations, all of which contribute positively to the world we live in.
Regular Pack 27 meetings are held during the school year at 6pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Congregational Church of Belmont.

Be part of the fun!
Parent involvement is critical to Scouts being the best experience it can be for our children and families. When parents are involved, kids learn leadership and feel a sense of community amongst the pack. Don't just be a spectator in the pack, get involved and be part of the fun!
Cub Scouts is a parent volunteer run organization. We need all parents to help out as much as you are able to in order to keep our pack strong. We can't make this program happen without you! Check out the open roles and opportunities for 2022/2023!
Pack Event Organizers
We always need various parents to sign up to help organize the various activities throughout the year such as being on a Pinewood Derby, planning committees, and helping to coordinate overnight and campinng trips, etc.
Parents can volunteer for one activity or several depending on your interest level and availability
Contact us if you are interested in any of the roles posted above.
Pack 27 dens
In Cub Scouts, packs are made up of smaller groups of kids called "dens". The dens represent various levels or ranks within the Cub Scout program. In our Cub Scouts pack we have the following dens represented for each rank within our pack. Dens are made up of Scouts who are in the same grade level (whenever possible). Sometimes, dens are combined if there aren't enough kids to make up a den.
Webelos II (5th Grade)
Webelos I (4th grade)
Bears (3rd grade)
Wolves (2nd grade)
Tigers (1st grade)
The Cub Scout motto is simply, "do your best" and the Cub Scouting 12 Core Values are outlined below. Being a part of Cub Scouts is more than just doing activities such as camping, hiking, and learning survival skills. It's about cultivating future leaders, being a good citizen of the community, and teaching kids pride in being the best they can be as individuals and as a team.
