  • The Cubmaster and Asst. Cubmasters lead the monthly pack meeting.

  • The pack meeting is the climax of the month’s den meetings and activities.

  • Pack meetings have games, skits, stunts, songs, ceremonies, and presentations of awards that the scouts have earned that month.

Scouts are members of a Cub Scout Den

  • Dens are divide by age/grade level

  • The Den meet a few times each month.

  • The den is led by a Den Leader (parent volunteer).

Pack 311 is run by a Pack Committee
