Welcome!

Welcome to the website for Pack 84! We are looking forward to an exciting 2012/2013 year.

The primary goal for Cub Scouts is to have fun while developing life skills and an appreciation of the outdoors, citizenship, and family. Scouting offers your boys an organized and unique opportunity not available with other club and recreational activities to build strong character that will promote success throughout their lives.

Open Positions

Posted on Apr 22 2014 - 1:30pm

In the next year we will be loosing quite a few leaders that have been with the Pack, some a short while, and others quite a long time. We need to work on filling these positions and to make it easier for whomever fills a role I would like to do this now before the Blue and Gold so that there can be some transition. If you are able to take on a role please let Cubmaster Mike know ASAP. I'm happy to announce that Kevin Murray will be taking over for Randee Elsing as Committee Chair!
