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 sales

I hope sales are going well.  

We still have lots of camp cards left to sell.  If you need more or still have not gotten any, I will have them with me at pack meeting on Monday.  Or, if you can't make it to pack meeting, just email me and I will find a way to get them to you.  

Remember, your scout will earn $1 for every card they sell.  .

Urgent: New Leaders Needed!

Posted on Feb 21 2015 - 8:42pm

By the next school year, all our key leaders (Committee Chair, Cubmaster, Treasurer and Charter Organization Rep) will be moving on to Boy Scouts.  Therefore, we are seeking people interested in these positions now so that we can begin training you now so that things will be a breeze once you take over.  

It is extremely important to have these positions filled as soon as possible.  If these positions are not filled, the pack cannot go on!

Please contact David Taylor or Christine Grant if you are interested.
