ABOUT US

OVERVIEW

Cub Scouts is "pre Boy Scouts" -- for boys in grades 1-5.
We believe that Cub Scouts is about developing a sense of self & teamwork through
outdoor adventures, hands-on activies, and learning to communicate more effectively.

Our Scouts & families are from several schools in the Jamesville-DeWitt & Syracuse areas, although most are from Tecumseh Elementary. 

The Pack is comprised of five Dens:

  • Tiger Den (grade 1)
  • Wolf Den (grade 2)
  • Bear Den (grade 3)
  • Webelos Den (grade 4)
  • Arrow of Light Den (grade 5 -- by March of 5th grade, the boys advance to Boy Scouts)

The Pack meets Sept - June, 1x/month (usually Tue or Fri, 6:00 @ Tecumseh Elem cafeteria).
The Dens meet about 1-2x/month (day/time/location determined by the Den families)

 

WHERE WE MEET:

Our Pack (and many of the Dens) meet at:
Tecumseh (TEC) Elementary School
901 Nottingham Rd. / Jamesville, NY 13078
(Located at the three way stop sign at Nottingham and Waring Roads)

WHAT DOES A SCOUT NEED TO PARTICIPATE?

Our Pack strives for fun activities that keep family commitment & cost reasonable.
The basic things a boy needs for Cub Scouts:

  • Cub Scout navy shirt
  • patches for the shirt: Pack #s 165, Longhouse Council patch, Den #, fleur-de-lis
  • handbook for the appropriate rank
  • neckerchief/slide for the appropriate rank

These items can be purchased at the Scout Store in Mattydale:

How to apply patches / badges:
The best way is to sew them on. They are more sturdy and withstand washings the best, and
should you need to remove the patches at some point, it can be done without damaging the shirt.
You can, however, try using the "Badge Magic" from the Scout store or any no-sew fabric adhesive.
It should work fairly well but may come undone if the shirt is washed a lot.
Also, these no-sew adhesives may allow the edges of your patch / badge to curl, and if you try to remove
them from the shirt, it could damage the shirt.
