All registered Cub Scouts in the Pack should have received their Passport to Summertime Adventure in the mail this week! The Summertime Award can only be earned during… you guessed it… the summer! Attend one event each month over the summer to earn this uniform pin. A different pin is earned each Rank year. The Outdoor Adventure Award can be worked on throughout the entire year, but summer is a great time to get started on it, and you earn a cool pocket patch. You can also download the calendar and award information on our Calendar page. Please watch Scoutbook and our Pack Facebook page for event information. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
New to Pack 7? Now is a great time to join and meet your den members. Contact us for more information!
Congratulations to all of our Cub Scouts who completed their Rank this year! Great job Cubs and families on your year of adventures, camping, hiking, aquatics, and lots of fun. Two of our leaders were also recognized with BSA Council awards and we recognized our rising-Webelos leader for her help in expanding our Aquatics program this year with the Rubber Ducky Award. See everyone Saturday 5/15 at the end of year party, and get ready for our Summer Events including Summer Camp. Regular Monday meeting will resume in August after school starts
Families that wish to purchase their handbook for the upcoming year before the summer may do so now via our website here: http://thegreatpack7.com/handbook. Books must be purchased by Thursday May 6, for pickup at the Monday May 10 meeting. Next Rank level starts June 1, except current Webelos/rising Arrow of Lights (upcoming fifth graders), who may continue to work on both their Webelos or AOL rank until Crossover in February.
Handbooks will also be available in August at re-enrollment.
Our April family campout will be in Withlacoochee Forest. Join us Friday April 16 – Sunday April 18 at this unique campsite, home of a former phosphate mine, now swimming/fishing hole. All families must register, even if just coming for Saturday day-time, so we can account for food, our capacity limits, and provide you with the gate code! Please note that running water and restrooms are available, but there is no on-site electricity. If you would like to camp but need a tent, please contact the committee for pack tent loaners!
Join us for our annual celebration of Scouting at our annual banquet. This year’s exciting theme is Harry Potter! We are excited to also welcome back our 2020 and 2021 Arrow of Light Dens, the Flaming Phoenix and Fighting Llama patrols!
Our 2021 Crossover Camp-out will be February 12-14 Camp Soule in Clearwater FL. Saturday night we will celebrate our Arrow of Light Cub Scouts as they end their Cub Scout journeys and crossover to continue the adventures with a BSA Troop. Join us for a fun weekend of camping, crossover, and ROCKETS! All attendees must register, except for visitors attending just Saturday evening for the Crossover ceremony. REGISTER HERE
Visitors for the ceremony should plan to arrive at 5pm for a 5:30 start time at the Council Ring. COVID-19 Forms and temperature checks will be required for ALL attendees. Please help us have everyone seated in time by arriving with your COVID-19 form (pages 2-3) already filled out for each guest (including children).
Scouting for Food is an annual food drive organized by the BSA each January. This year we will be donating our collected food to our Chartered Organization’s food bank, to thank St Thomas for supporting our Pack 7 Cub Scout program since 1988. In 2020, Pack 7 and Troop 177 donated over 100lbs of food to Metropolitan Ministries!
Register here for either hanger drop-off or food collection dates: Registration is now closed. Thank you!
Update: We collected 250+lbs of food for the St Thomas Aquinas food pantry. Thank you to all the Pack 7 Cub Scouts who volunteered for this service project!
Please email email@example.com with any questions. Every den has at least one adventure that requires an annual service project.
Our Pinewood Derby build workshop will be Monday Jan 18 from 6p-8p. There is no regular Den meeting that night. Bring tools to share or come borrow some! Adults will be on-hand with power tools to help you shape your best 2021 Pinewood Derby car. The official Pack 7 Pinewood Derby is Saturday, February 6, 2021.
