Facts about Cub Scout Pack 75


Comprised of boys in the 1st – 5th grades

Consists of the following categories (dens)

Tigers (1st grade, ages 6-7)

Wolves (2nd grade, ages 7-8)

Bears (3rd grade, ages 8-9)

Webelos I (4th grade, ages 9-10)

Webelos II (5th grade, ages 10-11)

Dens meet 2-3 times a month (1-1.5 hrs each meeting) on a schedule to be determined by the parents of the boys in the den. Meetings are normally held at Hendersonville First United Methodist Church in the evening.

Entire pack meets monthly on the last Monday of each month (Sep-May) at which time awards are presented, demonstrations and skits performed.

Each Scout works individually and collectively with their den to complete required achievements and elective activities towards advancement of rank as detailed in the handbook for their program.

Pack 75 is a unit within the Cherokee District of the Middle Tennessee Council of the National Boy Scouts of America organization

Pack 75 is chartered through Hendersonville First United Methodist Church, however boys of all faiths are welcome.

Local pack dues for the 2008-2009 school year are $50. These dues cover the awards presented throughout the year and costs incurred by the den leaders to provide quality den programs, and are separate from the registration fees which go straight to the council office.

At least one parent is required to attend den meetings for each boy enrolled in the Tigers program. Attendance by parents in the later grades is optional, but parental involvement in the overall program is critical to each boy’s success.

Volunteer-run organization requires a Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster on the pack level, and den leaders and assistant den leaders for each age group.

Special events throughout the year include:

Scouting for Food (Oct-Nov)

Participate in Hendersonville Christmas Parade (December)

Cub Scout Lock-In (January)
