Cub Scout Pack 1967 - Fairfax, VA

HIGHLIGHTED UPCOMING EVENTS!

If you are interested in joining, or for more information, please contact our Pack Cub Master, Matt Jones, at: CubScout.Pack.1967@gmail.com

Pack 1967 Cubmaster's Welcome


As the Pack 1967 Cubmaster, let me welcome you! 

Pack 1967 is chartered to the King's Park West Civic Association in Fairfax, VA, and we typically hold our Pack meetings on the second Wednesday of the month at Robinson High School cafeteria - feel free to join us, visitors are always welcome.

Our pack strives to make every event as much fun as possible.  Our pack meetings are interactive and sometimes entertaining; we have great events like launching rockets or racing model sailboats in a raingutter full of water; and we get out at least twice a year for Pack camping/hiking events.

In addition to the fun, we try to make sure everybody in the pack follows the Cub Scout motto to "Do Your Best."  In Pack 1967, all the parents help the boys do their best to learn skills that will help then through out the rest of their lives ... like how to tie a knot that will hold, what poison ivy looks like, and how to perform basic first aid.  In addition to serving the boys, we serve the community.  Pack 1967 Cub Scouts have assisted by collecting food for the less fortunate and helped to cleaning up local parks/school grounds.  By parents working closely with the boys, these simple life lessons sink in and help the boys as they grow to adults.

Pack 1967 has it all, we have fun, learn, and give back to the community - stop in for a visit, we would enjoy meeting you!

Matt Jones, Cubmaster

Join the Fun!




Future Scouts: Seize the opportunity to learn cool new things, experience things you've only imagined (or seen on TV), have a blast with your family and friends, and earn awards.


Future Scouting Parents: This is your chance (”blue and golden opportunity”) to teach your son invaluable lessons, instill values that you think are really important, and most importantly, prove to your whole family that you know how to have FUN! Research has shown that early involvement in values-based programs is vital to strong character development. The longer a child stays in Scouting, the more likely they are to develop the values and skills needed to become an ethical and productive citizen.  

 

Register AnytimeEven though the Cub Scout programs kicks up into high gear in September (at the beginning of the school year), you can join at any time of the year!  We welcome new members year-round, and if you just want to check out what Scouting (and what Pack 1967) is all about, you can always come to one of our pack meetings or events. Just contact our Cubmaster via email and see when we’re having the next meeting or event.

Pack 1967 News


Pack 1967 News  - Summer Wrap-up

The summer’s winding down, but Pack 1967 is still going strong!  At the beginning of August, some of the Webelos Scouts attended the week-long camp at Goshen.  The boys spent the week swimming in the lake, shooting bb guns, archery, learning ecology, scoutcraft, and handicraft.

Later in the month, the Pack traveled to Arlington National Cemetery and laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  After that, the Scouts travelled in to Washington, DC, to complete the History of Scouting hike, a 2.5-mile hike through the city that honors the founders of the Boy Scouts of America while taking hikers through Scouting-related landmarks and sites.  It was a long day, but the Scouts earned their hiking legs!  Pack 1967 ended the summer with a cookout at Royal Lake.  It was great to see everyone again as we get ready for the new school year!


Scout Meetings


Pack meetings are typically the second Wednesday night of the month at 7:00 pm at LAUREL RIDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL's Cafeteria. Meetings last about an hour and a half (we're trying to keep it closer to the 1 hour mark), during which we celebrate each scouts’ achievements from the previous month, discuss a core theme/value, play games, and learn about our community.

 

The pack is organized into different dens which are grouped by school grade:

    • Lion – Kindergarten
    • Tiger – 1st Grade
    • Wolf – 2nd Grade
    • Bear – 3rd Grade
    • Webelos – 4th Grade
    • Arrow of Light – 5th Grade


Our dens gather 1-4 times a month to do projects, play games, and visit points of interest in the community. During den meetings and at home with parents scouts earn awards, advancements, and patches. Cub Scouting is participation based with the scouts earning awards by doing their best.



Per Fairfax County Public Schools, whenever schools are closed due to weather any extracirricular activities meeting in the school are also cancelled.

We will try to provide timely updates via ScoutBook (a website for parents that provides calendar updates and tracks advancement requirements - available to all registered scout families), but check with your Den Leader if you still have questions.

How will having girls in Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA change the Scouting experience? Watch and find out!
