School Night for Scouting

Do you have a boy who will be entering grades 1 through 5 and would like to join Pack 147? Just want to learn more? Join us at our School Night for Scouting registration night on Thursday, September 3rd, at 6:30pm in the Bolin Gym.

New and returning scouts are invited to attend our School Night for Scouting. There will be a short orientation for the new parents to learn more about cub scouting and our pack, as well as hopefully sign up! Returning scouts can pay their registration fee ($35) at this meeting, and this year we will have your handbooks available to purchase. We’ll also have a game for all the kids to play. Like us on Facebook, and spread the word! You can join at any age, and 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 20th 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 2015

New scouts are encouraged to attend the Wotamalo Cub Scout Launch on Saturday, October 3rd. This event is put on by the council, and brings together scouts from many different packs.
