About Pack 513

The attached file (scroll to the bottom of this page) is an official document about Cub Scouting in general, and the following is designed to help you get an idea of how Pack 513 works.

Kids are grouped together by grade level and these small groups are called dens. All the dens together is called a Pack. Pack 513 has dens in grades Kindergarden through 5th grade. After 5th grade they are ready to join a Troop of Scouts, youth age 10-18.

Dens typically meet once or twice a month but can get together as much as they'd like. One of the get togethers is usually a "field trip" to a nearby area of interest such as a fire station, museum, nature center, zoo or the like. The other get together is a den meeting which often has a craft or game and a discussion about material in the rank specific book. Depending on the time of the meeting, it may also have a snack. Den meetings are usually about one hour in length.

From August to May, Pack 513 meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month for one hour at Woodbury Baptist Church, located just behind Woodbury Elementary & Woodbury Middle School. All the dens assemble here to honor and recognize the achievements and advancements, perform skits, play games, sing songs and other fun activities.

The Pack averages between 30 and 50 Scouts. The ideal den size is 6-8 Scouts but can be larger with more co-den leaders.

This website is a huge asset to you and the pack. It has a digital calendar you can synch with your handiest internet devices so you're always up to date on the latest scout activities. To help us be thrifty, this site's web calendar has an RSVP feature that allows you to notify the pack if you're coming or not to scouting events. Along with the upcoming year the web calendar has a record of our activities dating back almost a decade. In addition, this site sends an email to you weekly so you're always in the know. During the summer, we turn off this email feature but send out periodic eblasts prior to certain events.

Pack 513 has just one fundraiser - Holiday decor sale in the fall which we deliver around Thanksgiving - in time for the winter festivities.

We offer camping opportunities each season as well as year-round activites that promote responsible fun and adventure, teach lifetime values and develop the type of character expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. Some of these activities include the Pinewood Derby, sledding, and the Blue & Gold Banquet.
