Cub Scouts enriches boys’ development by teaching them to make ethical and moral choices. We do this through community service, faith formation, athletics, academics, arts and crafts and outdoor adventures.
Learning By Doing
No matter what grade you are in, first through fifth, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to tie knots, set up a tent, or shoot a bow and arrow. Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? Built a birdhouse? Hiked?
Cub Scouts Belong to Packs and Dens
As a Cub Scout, you will be part of your own pack. The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den has about six to eight boys. All of the Cub Scouts in your den are in the same grade and may even go to the same school.
The Cub Scout pack is sponsored by St. Pat’s. This group makes sure your pack has good adult leaders, a place to meet, and exciting things to do. The group gets help from the Boy Scouts of America, which is part of Scouting around the world.
Pinewood Derbies, Field Trips, Regattas and More
Have you been to the local police station and talked to the policemen on duty? Or visited the fire station and sat in the driver’s seat of the pumper truck? Or visited the local TV station and sat in the news anchor’s chair? These are some of the places you might go with your den or pack.
You might also build a pinewood derby car and race it on the track, build a sailboat or trimaran and race it in the raingutter regatta, or build a spaceship and race it to the stars in the pack space derby.

Cub Scouts Believe in Community Service and Helping Others
Accomplishments Build Confidence
Each time a Cub Scout completes an accomplishment or learns a new skill, he received an award. Sometimes the reward is a loop for your belt, a pin, or a patch. Sometimes it feeling proud of yourself or a smile on your parents’ faces to see you grow and learn.
The Cub Scout Pack 299 is a chartered organization of Saint Patrick Catholic Church with several parish representatives names on the charter. In addition to strong parish leadership Cub Scout Pack 299 has faith-filled registered adult leaders, included in the charter. Leaders require the signature of the Chartered Organization Representative for the initial registration.
Cub Scouts meet on Wednesday at 6:30 P.M. in the Church Hall and at various other times throughout the year.
