Pack 631 is Scouting On Safely with "Scouting on Demand"

Cub Scouting in 2020 will be different – and the same – for Pack 631, Sponsored by Woodward Academy.  Different because we'll do it in family groups, but the adventures and activities that Scouts can do are the same.  To be safe, the activities will be led by families with parents guided by Den and Pack Leaders – we’re not scheduling any group in-person activities by Dens or by the Pack through the end of the year.  While we wish we could have the great group in-person activities, we want to be safe – and we still need to raise our children.  Scouting can help, so Cub Scout adventures will be led by families with parents guided by Den and Pack Leaders.  As we get to the end of the year, we’ll revisit whether and how in-person group activities can be done in 2021. 

Families of Pack 631 can still go camping and hiking and biking and fishing and trailblazing and more -- you can do Scouting on Demand, on your own schedule!  We will have community connection through common activities done separately by families -- and the community will share their stories and pictures and videos with each other.  See the flyers attached for monthly themes that line up across all ages, with Roll On! Game On! Hike On! Citizen On! Family On! themes from August into the new year.

Girls in Cub Scouting!  Yes, we are open to girls joining us, with adult female leaders to help support them.  And kindergarten kids too.  Stay tuned for details here on the website and "like us" on our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/Pack631.  Once you Login, you will have access to all features of our Website.  Forgot how to Login? Email the Webmaster!  Not a member of the Pack, but think you might want to join?  See our About Us and How to Join page on the left menu bar.  Need even more info, please contact the Cubmaster or Pack Committee Chair.

Summer Atlanta Area Council Cub Scout Events

Posted on May 6 2021 - 9:03am

The Atlanta Area Council of the BSA has a number of events that Cub Scouts and their families can participate in, including a set of "Day Camps" in June and July in various locations around Atlanta, plus a "virtual" day camp experience -- see www.atlantabsa.org/daycamp for more information. 

Even better and more fun is Cub Scout Summer Overnight Camp at Bert Adams Scout Camp, with two weekend sessions (July 9-11 and July 16-18), plus a mid-week specialty camp July 12-14.  See www.campbertadams.org/cubovernight for more information.  Bring your Bikes!

These events do not need the whole den to attend -- you can sign up your Scout to attend a Day Camp that works for your calendar and location, and plenty of Scouts and Parents attend Overnight Camp and have a blast.  Of course, if more go as a group, the group will have more fun.  

Adventure Plan Resources for Family, Parents and Dens

Posted on Apr 26 2021 - 10:10am

As found in the Den Adventure Plans page, you'll find plenty of resources on things to do as a family, and in outdoor, safe, socially distant den activities - and to finish up your Scout's work on the current badge of rank.  Each page has subpages for each Adventure, and each of those pages has family-led and other Adventure Plans, plus notes about how to deliver those Adventures, including videos and other resources to bring the topics to life.  For more, see:

In our pages linked above, you'll find some commentary about the "Easy" way to do some of the Adventures, especially in some "Streamlined" plans for Dens plus the Family-Led Plans. 

Did You Complete Any Adventures? If So, Let Us Know!

Service Projects and Family Faith Adventures

Posted on Mar 31 2021 - 4:07pm

FYI, the Family Faith Adventures in the Cub Scout Handbooks are good ones to do at home during this time -- and the Service Project opportunities outlined on this Website may be a part of completing these Adventures if your belief tradition includes the idea of giving back to others and helping the community.  For more, see the links below:

  • In First Grade, "Tiger Circles: Duty to God" has an element of "Help with a local service project and talk with your den or family about how helping others is part of our duty to God."  
  • For the Second Grade, "Duty to God Footsteps" doesn't have a Service Project piece directly, but Council Fire does, with "Participate in a community service project with your pack, den, or family".
  • Third Grade has Fellowship and Duty to God with an element of "With a family member, provide service to a place of worship or a spiritual community, school, or community organization that puts into practice your ideals of duty to God and strengthens your fellowship with others."
  • Fourth Grade has Duty to God and You and while there is not a direct service project part, it could be found in this: "List one thing that will bring you closer to doing your duty to God, and practice it for one month. Write down what you will do each day to remind you."
  • And Fifth Grade has Duty to God in Action has it with "Under the direction of your parent, guardian, or religious or spiritual leader, do an act of service for someone in your family, neighborhood, or community. Talk about your service with your family. Tell your family how it related to doing your duty to God."

Follow the links above for more, and remember: faith beliefs in Scouting are determined by the family -- everyone's duty is different.
