First Pack Meeting and Registration

Please be sure to join us at our first pack meeting of the year on Tuesday, September 9th at 6:30pm in the Bolin Elementary School gym. New scouts and returning scouts can register at this meeting, and there will be a short orientation for new parents to learn more about cub scouting and our pack. We’ll also have a game for all the kids to play. Spread the word! Boys enjoy cub scouting the most when their friends join with them!

Fishing Derby

Our September family event will be a fishing derby, on Sunday, September 21st at 1:30pm. It will be held at Hooked on Fishing. They provide fishing poles, bait, and everything else you need! As with all of our events, siblings are welcome to attend.

Cub Scout Launch 2014

New scouts are encouraged to attend the Wotamalo Cub Scout Launch on Saturday, September 27th. This event is put on by the council, and brings together scouts from many different packs for games, crafts, and other activities. Additionally, the boys get to shoot BB guns and practice archery at this event under the supervision of well-trained range safety officers! Prior registration is required, so please let Korey know if you’d like to attend so I can get you registered. More information is available at

If you’d like to attend, but that date won’t work for you, there are options in Canton and Bloomington on October 11th.
