We meet on the first and third Thursday of the month. We also try to have at least one extra pack activity a month.
Due to COVID19, our Pack is currently not gathering. Our Dens are meeting individually in person or on Zoom. We are hoping that in the fall of 2021, we are able to resume our normal Pack Meetings at Balls Bluff Elementary School.
Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Our Cub Scouting program is open to boys and girls. By welcoming both girls and boys into the program, even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises.
Yes! On average, more than 90 percent of Scouting families and leaders believe the BSA programs are relevant to both boys and girls. What’s more, education experts also evaluated the curriculum and content and confirmed that the programs are both relevant and empowering for both young men and young women.
Pack 982 is committed to creating a rewarding program for our scouts that includes adventure and education. Our pack hosts a fall and spring camping trip each year. A pack overnight camp out is a great way to get to know the families in the pack and to work on outdoor adventures.
YES! 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 that is provided by the pack, 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.
Our pack is a "Belt Up" Pack. That means that your son or daughter wears the cub scout shirt, belt, neckerchief, slide, and cap, but can wear jeans if they wish.
Yes!!!! We are very grateful to the parents, siblings, and friends who help out. Ways you can help include:
....and so much more. Talk to a leader at the next den meeting and let them know what you are interested in.
