April Family Campout

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!

Scouting for Food 2021

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 committee@thegreatpack7.com with any questions. Every den has at least one adventure that requires an annual service project.

Pinewood Derby 2021

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.
