Welcome to Pack 165!

Welcome to Pack 165's website.  This is where we keep our members up to date with all of our happenings.  We are always looking for members to join.  

Our scouts have a lot of fun while camping, swimming, hiking, doing fundraisers and community service projects.  Scouting is a great way for your son to learn the value of citizenship, service, physical and mental fitness and leadership.   Our scouts consist of boys from Wellington Elementary and New Horizons Elementary Schools and we welcome those from any other school as well.  Our meetings are held at Wellington Elementary School monthly.  Use the "Contact Us" link on the left hand side to find out more information about our pack and when our meetings are held.  


Camp Cards are here!!!

Posted on Jan 25 2015 - 8:55am

Our annual Camp Card fundraiser is back!  We have new cards this year, it is a foldable pack (no longer the plastic card) of coupons that costs $5.00 and includes coupons for:

Lion Country Safari, Panda Express, Roger Dean Stadium games, Friendly's, Big Apple Pizza, KFC, Tijuana Flats, Tire Kingdoom, Bass Pro Shops, Sports Authority and Famous Footwear.  

Some of you may have noticed one store not mentioned, there are no Publix coupons this year.  It should still be an easy sell, there is over $100 worth of coupons for just $5.00!  Our goal is to sell 300 cards.  Each scout will earn $1.00 for every card they sell. 

Your den leaders will be handing these out as soon as I can get these to them.  I will also have them availble at our Pinewood Derby Clinic and next pack meeting.
