Next Pack Event:
The Pack 673 Pinewood Derby will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm in the Cafeteria at Great Falls Elementary School.
On Thursday, February 21, 2019, Pack 673 will hold its annual Blue & Gold Dinner, at which we will celebrate our 65th year as a chartered Cub Pack. The dinner will be held in the Cafeteria at Great Falls Elementary School beginning from 5:30 to 8:30 pm.
The Pack 673 Cub Scout program is for boys in Kindergarten through the 5th grade. Cub Scouts enjoy: earning pins, belt loops, and badges while learning important skills; teamwork; public service; character building; hiking; camping; crafts, Pinewood Derby; Scout Olympics . . . and just plain ol' fun!
Note about Family Scouting: In 2018, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) introduced its new “Family Scouting” initiative, under which girls are permitted to become members of BSA Scouting units, including Cub Scout packs. BSA's Family Scouting policy for Cub Scouts requires that packs accepting girls as members maintain separate dens for boys and girls at each level. After reaching out to the community in the Fall of 2018, we determined that the number of girls expressing interest in joining the pack was not sufficient to be able to establish any viable female dens at this time. As a result, Pack 673 is continuing as a boys-only pack for the 2018-2019 program year. We may reconsider this decision in future years based on the level of interest in female membership, the ability of interested families to provide the required den leadership, and our assessment as to whether we would be able to provide a high quality experience for interested girls without compromising the quality of our existing programs.
