Cub Scout Pack 467 is located in New Milford, CT. We are part of the Northwest Hills District of the Connecticut Rivers Council. Our Pack was started in 1970 and is sponsored by St. John's Episcopal Church of New Milford.
Our Pack activities are designed to be family oriented, not just Cub Scout oriented and we make every effort for all family members (young, old, male, female, etc) to be included (if they want to be) in all our activities. Our Pack offers a 'flavor' of Scouting which we feel at this young age is important since families need time to be involved in many activities outside their home.
The Meetings for our Pack, Committee & Dens are conveniently located in and close to New Milford Town Center.
Our Pack's Cub Scouting Year: September - March In-Training for Rank Award March Achieve Rank Award at Blue & Gold Banquet April - August Qualified in Rank August - September Prepare / Begin Training for new Rank
What is Cub Scouting?
The Cub Scout program is an international fun and educational experience providing a positive place where boys can enjoy safe, wholesome activities while focusing on building character, improving physical fitness, learning practical skills and developing a spirit of community service. The age group is first grade through fifth grade, approximately 6-11 years old.
Every Cub Scout is a member of a pack. A pack is a large group of boys. The pack is divided into smaller groups called Dens. The Cubs within a Den are similar in age and school year.
The Pack belongs to an organization within a community. The organization helps the Pack have good leadership, a place to meet and exciting things to do. The Pack also gets help from the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) which is part of Scouting around the world.
Cub Scouts do things and go places and earn awards. Much of the fun happens right in the Den and Pack. Dens usually meet weekly or bi-weekly, Packs usually meet once per month. At Den and Pack meetings, Cub Scouts do different things for fun and learning. Cubs also go to events like the annual Blue & Gold Banquet (celebrating the "birth" of Scouting), Crossing Over ceremony (where Cubs cross-over from one level to the next), the annual Pinewood Derby (wooden car race), field trips, camping, community events, community service, and other kinds of outdoor adventures. While having fun and working on projects, Cub Scouts earn Badges and Awards for various achievements, including advancement of Rank, Academics and Sports.
Cub Scouting is fun with a purpose: to help boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit, all while doing their best.
