Welcome to Pack 353


The Boy Scouts of America has been an American institution since 1910.  Founded in 1930, Cub Scouting, a division of the Boy Scouts of America, has involved younger boys in the scouting movement. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (or 7 to 10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA's three membership divisions (the others are Boy Scouting and Venturing). 

The purposes of Cub Scouting are physical fitness, character development, and citizenship.  If you ask a boy, however, he’ll seldom offer these reasons for being a Cub Scout.  Boys have one primary reason to join Cub Scouts, and that’s to have FUN!  Our Pack has a program that provides boys (and their families) a lot of fun!

Scout Scarf Day - Aug 1st

Posted on Jun 27 2017 - 10:26am


The idea of "Scout Scarf Day" on August 1 is that all active and former scouts are requested to wear their scout scarfs in public to make the "Spirit of Scouting" visible: Once a Scout - Always a Scout! 

The date of the event commemorates the very first Scout Camp on Brownsea Island in 1907.

Of course, the scarf is only a symbol but a strong symbol for the scout promise and for our mission to leave the world as a bit better a place than we had found it.
