Activities and Events

Cub Scouting is an active program. Scouts learn by doing, and there’s no end to the fun things that Cub Scouts do in their dens, as a pack, and at special events. With activities held at every level—family, den, and pack—Cub Scouting provides a year-round program of fun and learning for Scouts and their families.

Pack Meetings:

Pack 250 has one Pack Meeting each month of the school year.  Most of these meetings are held on Monday evenings during normal meeting time.  Pack Meetings are where all of our Scouts and parents come together to have fun, learn new skills and enjoy each other’s fellowship.

Pack Meetings normally include advancement time, a special program, and a time for all dens to present anything they have worked on throughout the month. Families are encouraged to attend as this is the time for their kids to show off their achievements.

Den Meetings:

The Pack is divided into smaller units called Dens.  Dens consists of scouts in the same grade.  Dens meet separately from the Pack 3 times a month to work on Cub Scout Adventure Achievements that allow Scouts progress to their next rank.

Pack Events:

Pack events include our Camp Outs/Overnights, Blue & Gold Banquet, Pinewood Derby, District Events, and Summer Activities. As a friendly reminder, it is the policy of the Boy Scouts of America that the use of alcoholic beverages and controlled substances is not permitted at any activity involving participation of youth members.  All Scouting functions, meetings, and activities should be conducted on a smoke-free basis, with smoking areas located away from all participants.

Community Service:

The Pack participates in various Community Service projects throughout the year including the Scouting For Food Drive, veterans’ awareness, and community clean-ups.  We are always looking for new opportunities to provide community service. If you have any ideas, please feel free to notify the pack leadership.

Community Events:

The Pack also participates in community events such as Fun Fest, Flag and Wreath Laying at the VA Cemetary.


We encourage Scouts and their families to view Cub Scouts as a commitment. While occasional absences can be worked around, the Cub Scout program does not lend itself to frequent nonattendance. Pack 250 will hold one Pack Meeting per month for most of the school year at Mayfair UMC. All Scouts are expected to attend. The dens will typically hold meetings during the month at a location to be determined by the Den Leader. Den meetings are important for learning and advancement, as well as fun and social interaction.

If your child must miss, please contact your den leader to arrange a way to make up the assignments.
