Annual Events, Activities & Meetings

Throughout the year, Pack 149 organizes and hosts a number of events, activities, and meetings. Frequently, all dens are included in each event, with a few exceptions depending on den-specific objectives. The event calendar tends to coincide with the Willard school year (September to June).

Den & Pack Meetings

In den meetings and pack meetings, Cub Scouts make new friends, play purposeful games, and learn new things.  Dens usually meet one time per month.  All the dens in the pack come together once a month for a pack meeting.

Rocket Launch Kick Off​

Every September we host a Rocket Launch Kick off. Conducting rocket academies is a long-standing event for many Scouting packs, troops, and camps. These events are a good way to showcase the broad spectrum of activities and learning associated with Scouting, and can educate participants and attendees about the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program.​

Camping & Outdoor Adventures

Cub Scout families have opportunities to go camping and to participate in outdoor adventures. Lessons learned in the out-of-doors help to develop a life-long respect for the environment.

Pinewood Derby

Partnered with a parent or guardian, Cub Scouts work together, strengthening bonds and building confidence – and their own custom race cars! They begin with an official Pinewood Derby Race Car kit, then create a design, then carve it from the wood block provided in the kit, and detail it with paint, decals and other accessories, and perfect strategies to compete in their pack’s own Pinewood Derby. It’s s a wonderful learning experience centered on teamwork, ingenuity and sportsmanship – all for the thrill of the race and a lifetime of great memories to share with fellow racers young and old.

Service Projects

Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do their best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While you’re giving service, you’re learning to work together with others to do something that’s good for your community. Service projects may help the natural world, the community, or the chartered organization. Make sure to review the Guide to Safe Scouting to ensure Cub Scouts are doing age appropriate activities. Some service projects fulfill requirements for adventures in the Cub Scout handbooks.

Blue & Gold Banquet

Blue and Gold Banquets are a tradition in Cub Scout packs. They are a celebration of the anniversary of the founding of the BSA on February 8, 1910, and therefore usually take the place of the February pack meeting. Often, badges of rank are awarded. The Arrow of Light ceremony may even be included as the 5th graders cross over to a troop. Sometimes community leaders or special guests are invited to attend. The meal can be a pot-luck dinner or other arrangements can be made – whatever suits your pack.​

Town Parades

Put on your uniform and line up with your friends! Who will hold the banner? Who will hold the flag? Smile and wave.​
