Get Back with the Pack! Pack 631 is Scouting On Safely!

Cub Scouting is Back!  Well, in 2020, we still did Cub Scouting, but it was different. So Welcome to Pack 631, Sponsored by Woodward Academy.  While we will closely monitor all applicable protocols (including at Woodward), the plan is for Den and Pack Adventures and Activities to be back in the Summer of 2021 and the 2021-22 school year.  We've lined up some great group activities for the rest of 2021 -- and we'll add more too -- so that your family can enjoy the best of Cub Scouting.  We're re-committing to being an "Every Parent Leads" Pack -- and we're providing every parent with the tools to succeed when they lead.   

So look for camping and hiking and swimming and biking and fishing and trailblazing and more.  See the flyer attached for upcoming events, and we'll update this site as we add more.  Cub Scout Pack 631 is open to all boys and girls, Kindergarten through Fifth Grade, and their Parents who will collectively lead them!

Girls in Cub Scouting?  Yes, we are open to girls joining us, with adult female leaders to help support them -- and we hope you are too, because we are stronger together.  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.  See our FAQ pages.  Need even more info, please contact the Cubmaster or Pack Committee Chair.

2022 Event Registrations Open!

Posted on Jan 26 2022 - 7:31pm

While some details will still need to be determined, and COVID considerations will always be followed (so mask up, keep your distance, and feel free to stay home and attend only those events that you're comfortable with), check out what events are available for Pack 631 families in 2022 -- so far: 

On those Pack events, show you want to go by clicking on the event link above (or in Event Registration to the right), pick your Scout's nameclick "attending" by family members who might attend, and let people know you want to go!  If your plans change and you can't go, email webmaster@atlanta631.mypack.us and we'll adjust the list.

Both the Fourth Grade Den parent volunteers and the Second Grade Den parent volunteers have posted Den Activity Dates and information on the Calendar -- we'll update for the other dens as the parent volunteers plan any activities.  Just email webmaster@atlanta631.mypack.us and we'll get you on the calendar.

Want to Launch a Hike or Other Activity With Other Families Like You?

Posted on Jan 19 2022 - 6:38pm

Wanna do a hike to places like in the Announcement below or somewhere else or else just connect with other families in your Grade/Den level?  To email everyone in the Den, you can use the emails below.  So, send messages to everyone (like "hey, who wants to do a walk this Saturday at ___ _.m. at ___?") to these emails: 

These emails work only if you are sending from an email that is in the Pack Roster, so if you want to send from, say, a work email or alternate to what's in the Pack Roster, email webmaster@atlanta631.mypack.us and we'll add your alternate email in (FYI, that "must be in the website roster" rule is what keeps spammers from sending to the website emails).

Reminder About Den Adventure Activity Plan Pages

Posted on Jan 5 2022 - 5:44pm

Our Den Adventure Plan pages are below, with more Rank by Rank (grade by grade) pages more tailored to the Pack 631 experience of using Streamlined and Family Led Adventure plans.  Each and every Rank (grade) page has simpler Family-Led Plans all of the Adventures plus tips, videos and other resources about how to deliver those Adventure Plans this Winter and Spring with more fun in ways easier for parent leaders -- also super useful if/when you want to either "catch up" or do Adventures at home (spoiler alert: you can with those family led plans).  Tiger, Wolf, Bear and Webelos also have parent-lead "Streamlined" Adventure Plans for Required Adventures likely done as a Den.  See your page and find your fun -- because Every Parent Leads in Pack 631!

We've also got a set of Bobcat and First Meeting Adventure Plans as part of a resource page called Getting Started Tips: Plans for First Meetings + Bobcat, so that you can get your Den off to a good start with some fun bonding.   

Special Note for Fifth Grade Families

Posted on Jan 5 2022 - 5:44pm

In addition to working out a schedule of final Fifth Grade Cub Scout activities at the Zoom meeting this Saturday at 10:00 am, where you will coordinate on completion of Arrow of Light Adventures, keep an eye on the Troop 631 Calendar of Activities (login just like the Pack login), because at some point in the next few months it will be time to "cross over" into a Scouts BSA Troop.  Troop 631 has just put up a number of activities over the coming months, and is open to participation with Fifth Grade Scouts, especially as anyone needs to finish up Arrow of Light Adventures.

Fun and Family and Friends: First Day Hike?

Posted on Dec 29 2021 - 7:00pm

Why Not Take a Walk?  Work off that Fruitcake!  Scouts and Scouting Families of all ages can benefit from a New Year's Day tradition: a First Day Hike.  Yes, originated as a "state park" program, but you don't need no Ranger to guide you on your First Day Hike -- you have Scouts!  You can find your way!  And you don't have to only go on New Year's Day -- walks and hikes are good for your Den Family + Friends anytime before, during, and after the holidays.  Want a list of places to go?  How about: 

  1. Reynolds Nature Preserve (Clayton County)
  2. Cochran Mill Park (South Fulton County) 
  3. Connally Nature Park (East Point)
  4. Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve (DeKalb County / Scott Boulevard)
  5. Wolf Creek Trail  (South Fulton County)
  6. Mason Mill Park Trails (DeKalb County, off Clairmont Road, near Emory)
  7. Westside Reservoir Park (Westside Atlanta, )
  8. Cascade Springs Nature Preserve (South Atlanta) 
  9. Dolls Head Trail / Constitution Lakes Park (South DeKalb)
  10. Southside Trail of the Atlanta Beltline (South Atlanta)
  11. Phoenix Trail  (near the Airport)
  12. Newman Wetlands Center (Clayton County)

So there's twelve places to walk for the 12 days of Christmas, and dozens of other destinations are on this Local Parks, Trails, Bike Trails page, and even more destinations at our Activity Ideas page.  So Find Fun + Family + Friends on a First Day Hike!
