We're on a Trail for Volunteer Adults and Leaders

A Cub Scout Pack is only as strong as its leaders and supporters.  We are on a journey in search of those amazing hidden talents that man posses and often go unnoticed or perhaps haven't been discovered yet.  If you like making a difference in the community and enrich the lives of young boys and their families, this is your time to shine! Bring your skills, willingness, amazing attitude and energy and we'll make something extraordinary together, as you join the active leadership already in place at Pack 964!  No one says it'll be easy, but we all agree it'll be beyond words worth it!  


This is a big transition year for our Pack.  A majority of our leadership will be bridging out at the end of this year 2017, therefore we must fill in the posts before transition occurs. It's easier if you begin your training directly with the one in charge today. Begin by becoming a Committee Member and attending our Monthly Committee meetings to begin to get acquainted with the roles each person plays to help our Pack run smoothly.
