Pack Meeting Ideas

The pack meeting brings all of the dens in the pack together for the purposes of recognizing the achievements of the Cub Scouts, communicating information about upcoming events, and providing a program that enriches the Cub Scouting experience.  It helps the Cubs realize their den is part of a larger organization.  A good pack meeting is well planned and well organized.  Packs meet several times during the year – there is no required number.  Some packs meet monthly, others less often.  As you determine how many meetings to schedule and when, please keep their purpose in mind.  Events such as the pinewood derby or blue and gold banquet can be considered pack meetings, especially if brief announcements and some achievements or rank advancements are included. Resources:

BSA is no longer providing suggested monthly themes. Here are some ideas for pack meetings. 

^Be careful when utilizing older materials as they will need to be adapted to the advancement changes that occurred in June 2015 and modified in 2017. Resources will also need to be modified to include the addition of girls and Lions in September 2018.
