Cub Scout Pack 163 is a scouting organization chartered by the Indian Hill PTO.
What is Cub Scouts
Cub Scouts is a year-round, family-friendly program designed for boys and girls who are in kindergarten through fifth grade. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting- citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. It presents them with chances to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence and develop leadership skills.
Types of Activities
What are some typical Scouting activities? Many people have heard about camping and
learning how to tie knots, but Scouting offers so much more.
Den Meetings- Cub Scout meetings with children their own age that include a mixture of games, learning new skills, crafts, education, and a sense of belonging.
Pack Meetings- A once-a-month meeting where many Dens get together for fun activities, to compete against one another, and to celebrate achievements and advancements over the last month. These can include fishing, nature hikes, behind-the-scenes tours, and more.
Cuborees- Outings during the year that give Scouts an opportunity to test their knowledge and skills in competitive events with other packs and kids their age.
Scout Tour—The Dan Beard Council has partnered with many organizations around the city such as the Cincinnati Reds, Kings Island, the Florence Freedom, the Cincinnati Cyclones, and more. Get great Scout family discounts to events and enjoy special Scout perks such as sleeping overnight on the field or getting behind-the-scenes tours of roller coasters.
Overnight Outing- Typically the pack plans an overnight adventure once a year like COSI or the zoo.
Summer Camp- A full-size modern pioneer fort, a medieval castle, a miner’s camp, and a mountain man village are just a few of the cool highlights while at summer camp. An adventure experience includes plenty of fun activities such as archery, swimming, and learning about the outdoors at the nature center.
Cub Scout Derbies- Race a model car, sailboat, or miniature rocket in a Cub Scout derby—the pinewood derby, rain gutter regatta, or space derby.
Service Projects- Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.”
What is the time commitment?
Cub Scouts typically meet twice a month on Sunday afternoons.
