How Pack 311 Works
Scouts are members of a Cub Scout Pack
The “Pack” consists of all the Dens and other leaders. The pack meets once a month in addition to other weekend activities, field trips, and camping experiences. All Cub Scout families are invited and encouraged to attend.
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).
The den leader is usually assisted by an Assistant Den Leader (parent volunteer).
Den meetings have scout skills, adventures, games, crafts, songs, ceremonies, and lots of fun.
Pack 311 is run by a Pack Committee
Most of these leaders are parents of boys and girls in the pack. All leaders and interested parents are encouraged to attend.
