Pack Information

Meetings

Den Meetings

We meet every Monday 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm at New Covenant Assembly Church at 1991 East Lake Dr., Casselberry, FL 32707. The Scouts meet in the chapel to say The Pledge of Allegiance, Scout Oath, and Scout Law. We make a couple of quick announcements then the Scouts break off into their Dens from 6:45 to 7:30. There the Scouts will participate in an activity that the Den Leader has planned for them.

Pack Meetings

Once a month we meet as a Pack. This is our time to celebrate what our Scouts have learned! We pass out awards, dens do a short skit or share an activity they have done that month. We also take this time to make sure everyone knows about the big events coming the next month. Pack meetings are usually held on the last Monday of the month at New Covenant at 6:30.

Round Table

The Seminole Springs District holds a Round Table on the third Thursday of every month at New Covenant Assembly at 7 PM. This is where we get updates from Council regarding new activities, best practices for Packs and Dens, and information on training. All leaders and parents are encouraged to attend.

Leader / Parent Meetings

Pack Leaders meet on the Friday immediately following RoundTable (usually the 3rd Thursdays) for planning of all of our upcoming activities. Locations will vary, but we will keep our information updated. All parents and kids are welcome.

Cost

Registration Fees

The annual fees for Pack 251 are $175. This fee is collected in October / November and covers registration, insurance, awards and some event costs for the following calendar year (January thru December).

Weekly Dues

As part of helping Scouts grow and learn responsibility, Den Leaders collect one dollar from the Scout each week. This helps the leader offset the cost of craft materials and other items required while Scouts work on their advancement.

Fundraisers

We offset a lot of costs for camping, pack activities, and banquets with fundraisers. We have two fundraisers, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. Popcorn is sold from August to December. Scout Camp Cards are sold from February to April.

Communication

We use Scoutbook.org to track your Scout’s advancement, awards and activities. Our official pack calendar is kept there, with easy linking to your phone. You will also receive a lot of communication from our leaders from Scoutbook, including event reminders and upcoming den activities. Please register and get linked up to your child as soon as possible. Contact Sean Esler if you have any problems.

If you have any questions you can contact any of the pack leaders through our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/Pack251Cubs/ or email our Cubmaster directly at cubmaster@pack251.com.

About Scoutbook

From the first knot tied to final hours of service performed, the Scouting experience is a journey like none other. And Scoutbook is your go-to tool to ensures not a moment is missed – tracking advancement, milestone achievements and all the fun along the way.

With the Scouting app, it’s easier than ever for youth and parents to track advancement and stay connected to their unit! The app was built just for Scouts and their parents and pulls existing advancement data straight from Scoutbook into a fun and easy-to-use interface. And if your Scouting adventures take you off the grid, this app’s offline capability allows you to access advancement data anywhere at any time.

Uniforms

In our Pack we are only requiring that each Scout have an official uniform shirt and belt. All uniform items can either be purchased at the Scout Store in Apopka, Travel Country in Altamonte Springs, or online at https://www.scoutshop.org. One Pack T-Shirt will be provided for new Scouts at one of their initial meetings. Current Scouts and family members can purchase additional Pack T-Shirts from the Pack directly.
