Pack Meetings 

Pack meetings are held monthly during the scouting year which runs from September through May. At the pack meetings, scouts receive awards for their achievements for the month (rank advancements, arrow points, beltloops/pins, and patches). In addition, each den is responsible for setting up a table to show-off their accomplishments for the month.

Family Camp is a great time for the whole family!  It gives us the opportunity to play, learn, explore, teach, eat, and worship together as a family with other scouting families in Pack/Troop 957. Even if you have never camped before there are plenty of helping hands to pitch in to make your weekend fun for everyone. Lots of down time is scheduled for you to spend with your kids. Hikes, games, and tasks are always available if you want to participate or just watch.
