The Cubmaster is the master of ceremonies for the Pack meeting and works with the pack committee to provide a quality program.
Most packs meet once a month, usually at the location of the chartered organization or other location.
The monthly pack meeting brings together Scouts from every den, their leaders, and families for a large-scale event that showcases all that the Scouts have learned and done in their individual den meetings.
A typical pack meeting begins with a formal opening ceremony. In the program section of the meeting, dens may give presentations and performances that demonstrate what they learned during the month. The highlight of the pack meeting is the formal recognition given to the Scouts who have earned badges, adventure loops, or other awards, and to leaders who may have earned training awards or deserve special recognition. This is followed by some general announcements and a formal closing ceremony to end the meeting.
The families in the pack may choose to organize and get together for special pack activities. The most common pack activities include the Pinewood Derby, Blue and Gold Banquet, and Pack Overnighters.
“Scouting taught me to seek out the best version of myself, to work hard for the things I want to accomplish, because anything worth doing is worth working hard for.”
