(Mark was the 2014/2015 leader, who is now the 2015 Wolves den leader)

I’m really excited to introduce myself as the Den Leader for Tiger Scouts (1st Grade).  It’s my first opportunity in a long time to be involved and we've got a lot of fun things to look forward to this year.

A few things:

- Our first Tiger Den Meeting will be Monday, 9/29 at 6:30PM at my house – 103 Hopi Ct, Naperville.

·         A parent for each child must attend each meeting

·         We will try to rotate locations between the Tiger Scout houses

·         Meetings will last approximately 45min – 1hr.

·         Den Meetings will be the last Monday of every month at 6:30PM, schedule of Loc to follow.

-  Pack meetings (all grades) are every 2nd Tuesday at Mill St. at 7PM – the next is Oct 14th.

- Scout Stuff – here are the basics to get started, this can be bought at the Chalkboard on 75th/Rt 59. 

·         Should Have - Blue Scout Shirt / #562 / Three Councils Patch / Den #4 / Tiger Den Book

·         Nice to Have – Red Achievement Vest / Neckerchief (see below) / Slides

·         Pack T-Shirt (special order) - $10, new for ’14 – another nice to have

·         For Lifers - Hats / Pant / Belt

·         Patches – will be earned and given by Den.

·         Neckerchiefs - Each year at the Cub Scout graduation some of the scouts donate their old scarves.   If your parents don't mind having a used scarf, they are welcome to take one - first come, first served.  It's one less thing they need to buy. 

- Fall Campout is Saturday 9/20 at Greene Valley Forest Preserve here in Naperville:  If you haven't already signed up but are interested please email Axel and myself – cc’d above.

- I will have Brian Williamson as an Assistant Den Leader, his info is below.

- You should be getting emails regarding pretty much everything regarding the larger pack, from Axel Vischer and Rick Bauer.  Please let me know if you're NOT receiving these, so I can get you added to the list.

- Lastly, the Pack 562 website is a great resource to see what's going on, what's coming up, etc.  The link is www.pack562.org

Please let me know if you have any questions at all or need anything.  You can email me or hit me up at the pack meeting tonight.

Looking forward to a great year with our Tiger Scouts!

Another year of scouting means another year of new scouts!  We would like to welcome our new Tiger Cubs to the Pack.  We hope they are as excited as we are!

Our Den Meetings are posted on the calendar (or they will be posted shortly) so keep an eye on the calendar for important dates.  You should also plan to attend the Monthly Pack Meeting where you will meet ALL of our Scouts in grades 1 - 5.  We also present awards and achievements at the Pack Meetings.

Enjoy a great year of Scouting and a great year of fun.  Glad to have you along!

New Tiger Den Forming Soon!

If you have a son graduating Kindergarten in May we have something for him (and you) to consider.  How about Cub Scouting?

We'd love to talk to you about the Cub Scout Program and the positive impact Scouts will have on your entire family.  So send us an email of fill out the form on this page and let us know how we can help get your child started.
