Cub Scout Pack Organization
Boy Scouts of America (BSA):
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. The Cub Scout program is part of the overall Scouting program offered by the BSA.
Council & District:
Pack 110 is part of the Diamond Rock District of the Chester County Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Council and District have both paid and volunteer representatives whose job it is to help Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops provide a quality program for the youth of Chester County.
Each Pack has a legal entity that supports the Pack and helped created it through agreement with the BSA. Pack 110’s Chartered Organization is the Hillsdale PTO. The PTO has a member who is our designated Chartered Organization Representative and this person assists the Pack in our annual recharter process and approves new Pack leadership.
The majority of the Scouts that are members of Pack 110 attend Hillsdale Elementary. The Pack is run by a committee made up of a Chair, Cubmaster, Treasurer, Awards Coordinator, Training Coordinator and the Den Leaders. There are also important supporting Pack rolls that include the Popcorn Sale Coordinator (Popcorn Kernel), Blue & Gold Banquet Organizers, Camping Coordinator, and individual Event Coordinators. Scouting is a family activity and there is no end to the opportunities large and small to help make the Pack go and provide a fun quality program for our sons.
Scouts in the Pack are organized into Dens by grade level. Each grade level will have at least one Den and they will range in size from 6-12+ Scouts. Each Den will have a Den Leader (and possible one or two assistant, or co-leaders) who are registered and trained annually for their position according to BSA guidelines. Den leaders stay with their Den from 1st grade up through 5th when the children age out and cross over to Boy Scouts.
During the Tiger year (first grade) BSA rules require a parent or guardian is present for all Den and Pack Gatherings and events. For Wolf through Webelos II (second to fifth grade) parents are encouraged to be present but it is not mandatory.
