Round up is when we invite boys who might be interested in Cub Scouts to come check out, and see how much fun we have. If you know someone who might be interested, please invite them to attend!

We have a lot of great activities planned for the year, so please join us for our kick off meeting.

Hope to see you all there!

New Pack Website - Welcome!

posted May 17, 2011, 12:32 PM by Pack 562   [ updated Sep 9, 2013, 7:02 PM by M Z ]

We've been working tirelessly on this.  You are encourage to thank us for the hard work. We need recognition too!!

Anyway, you will notice some changes in the way we go about Pack business over the next several months and we are pretty sure they will be changes for the better.  Our hope is that you can (eventually) rely on the website as your main source of information about our Scout program.

In the near future, our leaders will learn to post stories and update their calendars and some other nifty tricks to keep everyone at the top of their game. Please give them some leeway as the changes go into effect and everything starts smoothing out.  It might get a little rocky before it gets smooth.

We think you are going to like the changes.  This website is already packed with features and when we get in a groove at the leadership level it will be even better.

If you'd like to contribute let us know.  The more the more merrier!
