Cub Scout Pack 17

Cub Scout Pack 17 is proud to be a part of the St. Laurence family.  Pack 17 has been a part of the St. Laurence family for 45 year and we are still going strong.  At the current time, we represent grades 1-3.  In the 2017-2018 school year, we hope to include our new kindergarten class who will be our new Lion Den.

Currently, we have   first graders – the Tiger Den,  second graders – the Wolf Den,  third graders – the Bear Den and next year we will have a Webelo Den.  Our Scouts participate in a year long program.  Starting in September, we meet twice a month for our Den Meeting and once a month for our Pack Meetings until May.  In June, July and August, we participate in  a monthly activity. With these summer activities, the Scouts stay connected with each other.

Some of the activities that our scouts participate in are the pinewood derby, raingutter regatta, woodworking,workshops to cover our badge requirements, visits to the Police Dept., and a visit to an animal shelter. In addition to our activities,  we complete service projects for the school, community, and nation.  We also go on monthly hikes to earn hiking badges.  Once a Scout has walked 25 miles, he earns an official Scout walking stick.  We are proud to announce that on Jan 20th, at our Pack Meeting, our first scout will be receiving  his walking stick.

If you know of a boy who would like to be a Scout, the criteria is simple.  A boy who wants to have fun and join in many wonderful activities.  **One important note.  The boy does not have to be from St Laurence School. We open our troop to any boy who wants to belong.  If you know a boy who is interested, please Contact Kathy Scaletta at  847-340-7638 or matt-the-cat@msn.com. When emailing,  please put Cub Scouts in the subject line.
