Den Meeting!

Join us Monday 8/23 at Sims Park amphitheater from 7p-8p for our first Den meetings of the school year. New families are welcome to come see what the Great Pack 7 is all about!

Welcome Back to the Pack 2021

We are excited to welcome our returning and new members back to the Pack and our school year program! We kick off this year with Camp Soule Aquatics Day on 8/14, the Raingutter Regatta and Registration Day on 8/16 at Sims Park Downtown New Port Richey, and wow our first camp-out is less than two months away. If you have a boy in Kindergarten through Grade 5 interested in joining our Cub Scout Pack, contact us today!

Don’t forget to turn in your Summer Adventure Passport at Registration Day to earn your Summertime Award!

Summertime Activities have begun!

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!

End of Year Wrap-Up

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

Order Your Handbook

Families that wish to purchase their handbook for the upcoming year before the summer may do so now via our website here:  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.

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 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.

Here are some tools to help you with your design!

See you at the track!
