Join one of our Scouting Programs:
Lion Cub Scouts
age 5 years old or Kindergarten
There's much to learn and explore at this age. This is Cub Scouts newest program (launched the Fall 2016) is an opportunity to expose younger boys to the great outdoors, fun and adventure Cub Scouts offers. A Lion Cub & an Adult Partner (usually a parent) form a team in the den and together begin their scouting learning adventures. Little by little the adventures expand. Check out the fun they cover here.
Tiger Cub Scouts
age 6 years old or 1st Grade
There's an adventure around every bend for Tiger Cubs. These boys are bursting with curiosity and energy to keep it company. Tiger Cub & an Adult Partner (usually a parent) form a team in the den and embark in service to others, build bird houses, explore the natural world around them, go on hikes, prepare for outdoor adventure with hiking essentials, meet community leaders teaching space exploration, personal safety, fire safety, bike safety and together play games, learn to take turns, care for each other and share their family's heritage, stories, & culture with fellow scouts. Learn more about their fun discoveries here.
Wolf Cub Scouts
age 7 years old or 2nd Grade
Little by little, slowly but surely the Wolf Cubs are finding adventures even more interesting. They remember to bring binoculars and containers to save their interesting finds while in the great outdoors. They're discussing community issues, they learn to properly handle, display & care for the American Flag, meet with local community leaders, learn about STEM & Conservation and orienteering and more. Learn more about their rank requirements here.
Bear Cub Scouts
age 8 years old or 3rd Grade
Bear Cubs are wiggling through the maze of endless wonder and discovery. They can now identify and properly use basic outdoor equipment, learn essential outdoor safety skills, plan for meals and games, lead flag ceremonies, and earning their "Whittling Chip" badge allows them the privilege to responsibly carry and use their own pocket knife during Cub Scout events. Learn more about their adventures here.
Webelos I (1st yr)
age 9 years old or 4th Grade
Webelos II - AoL (2nd yr)
age 10 years old or 5th Grade
WeBeLoS are on their journey to bridge from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. This is a two year (or some leaders can complete in 18 months) program which prepares the boys to set sail into the rest of their scouting trail. Here they will learn the essential requirements that will allow them to obtain their WeBeloS Badge the first year, and on their second year, they achieve the Arrow of Light (AoL), which is Cub Scouts highest rank, our version of making "Eagle".
WeBeLoS I begin their first full year together as they enter the 4th grade and at the end of their 4th grade year, they bridge to become WeBeLoS II or (AoL) Scouts. They begin their second year of WeBeloS as they enter the 5th grade. Upon achieving their AoL (Arrow of Light) which is Cub Scouts' highest rank, they then transition into the BSA Troop they select to continue their scouting jouney.
It's an amazing and remarkable moment to see these boys emerge into exceptional young men. It's especially touching for those parents who supported their trails from Tiger Cubs. Needless to say, it's a very fulfilling experience in the life of every Cub Scout & their family.
If your son desires to participate, it's never too late to start. WEBELOS will allow the opportunity to prepare for the amazing adventure Boy Scouts can offer. Please contact our Terrific WEBELO Scout Leader for more information. NOTE: It is very important for Webelos I to begin their adventure in the Summer or early Fall (the latest) of the 4th grade. Late enrollment to this program may delay or impede bridging along with his fellow WeBeLoS; but often eager & dedicated WeBeLoS with their families catch-up right on time. Scouts who join as 5th graders will aim to achieve Arrow of Light (AoL) right before transitioning into the troop of their choice, which traditionally takes place sometime in February or March of their 5th grade year for Pack 964 Webelos.

If America runs on Dunkin, Pack 964 runs on the Awesomeness of our Volunteer Leaders. All Cub Scout Leaders and Parents are volunteers, with busy schedules to add to the fun. You might already be aware, community leaders & volunteers are in short supply everywhere we go seeking the betterment of our children. We are always welcoming and training rock stars with hidden talents, abilities and best of all, willingness to help Pack 964 thrive. If you enjoy working with children, especially energetic boys waiting to be taught timeless values such as faith, serving others, responsibility, healthy living, building character, leadership, citizenship, outdoor skills and much more - this is the place for you. You'll not only be making a difference in a boy's life, but a positive impact within our immediate community today.
We are thankful for our volunteer leaders in supporting families in our community through this exceptional scouting program.
