Welcome to Cub Scout Pack #165

We are a Cub Scout Pack located in the DeWitt area of Syracuse, New York.
Our Pack serves boys and their families from several schools: Tecumseh, Moses DeWitt, Holy Cross and some Syracuse City schools.
Regardless of the school you attend, ANY boy in grades 1-5 is welcome to join our Pack.
We are a "family friendly" Pack and encourage parents and siblings to participate in most of the activities we do.

There isĀ lots of fun and adventure through the activities with our Dens and Pack.
But there's more to it than that. Being a Cub Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs.
Cub Scouting is more than something to do. It's all about the boy you are and the person you will become.

Some of the best things about Cub Scouting are the activities you get to do: camping, hiking, racing model boats and cars, going on fieldĀ trips, or doing projects that help your hometown and the people who live there.
Cub Scouting means "doing."

~We are happy to announce that Joe Richer has agreed to step into the role of Cubmaster as Frank Ridzi finishes up his time with our pack. Joe and his wife, Lynn have been involved with Pack 165 for many years and we know that Joe will be a great Cubmaster!

~We hope that you will be able to join us for our Blue & Gold dinner on MONDAY, February 22nd at the JD Middle School cafeteria. Doors open at 5:30, ceremony starts at 6:00, followed by dinner (catered by Mario & Salvo) and a presentation from the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. Our Webelos 2 Scouts will be receiving their Arrows of Light and bridging to Boy Scouts. Please help us celebrate them and the birthday of the Boy Scouts of America! RSVP TO YOUR DEN LEADER BY MONDAY, FEB 15 WITH THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE FROM YOUR FAMILY (INCLUDING YOUR SCOUT) THAT WILL BE ATTENDING!

~An important part of keeping our pack running smoothly is scheduling and communication. The Pack Committee needs a parent or two who would be able to help with this by serving as our Pack Secretary. Our Den Leaders and Cubmaster work very hard to provide a great program for our Scouts, but they need help from other parents to keep the pack organized. Our current secretary will be moving into the Committee Chair position after February. The secretary would help the Committee Chair to prepare the agenda for the monthly committee meeting, take minutes at the meeting and post them to our website. He/she would also update this website page (that you are currently reading) weekly, coordinate the creation of the pack calendar in late August/early September and keep it updated throughout the year. There is no BSA online training involved for this position. Please contact Debbie at debdonaghue@gmail.com if you would be willing to help with this!

~Now that the real winter weather is here, just a reminder that if the JD School District closes, dismisses early or cancels after school activities due to weather, Pack/Den activities are also cancelled for that evening.

~There are a couple of local events coming up with special Scout tickets available...a Silver Knights soccer game (Feb 18th) and Monster Truck Jam (Mar 5th). Please click on the events on our calendar page to get more information if you are interested.
