Activities & 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 110 has one Pack Meeting each month of the school year. Most of these meetings are held on Friday evenings in the Hillsdale Gymnasium. Pack Meetings are where our all of our Scouts and parents come together to have fun, learn new skills and enjoy each other’s fellowship.
The Pack is divided into smaller units called Dens. Dens generally consist of six to eight Scouts in the same grade. Dens meet separately from the Pack 1-2 times a month to work on Cub Scout Adventure Achievements that allow Scouts progress to their next rank.
Pack events include our Camp Outs/Overnights, Blue & Gold Banquet, Pinewood Derby, Spring Rocket Launch, and Summer Picnic. 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.
The Pack participates in various Community Service projects throughout the year including the Scouting For Food Drive, retirement home visits, and community clean-ups. We are always looking for new opportunities to provide community service so it you have any ideas, please feel free to notify the pack leadership.
The Pack also participates in community events such as the West Chester Halloween and Veterans Day Parades.
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 110 will hold one Pack Meeting per month for most of the school year at Hillsdale Elementary School. 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.
