About Us & Our Activities

About Us

Cub Scout Pack 100 of Westford, MA is a member of the Spirit of Adventure Council of the Boy Scouts of America. We are in the council's West Wind District.

Cub Scouting is a year-round family oriented program for boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grades. Boys and girls from any elementary school are welcome.

Most years we have about 60-80 scouts in the pack, plus the parents and siblings who come to our meetings. Pack meetings are held once a month. Most are on 1st Friday nights at Abbot Elementary School. All family members are invited to all Pack events. Den meetings are usually twice a month and meet at times and places determined by the den members.

We have modest dues. The dues pay for most pack activities, including awards, derbies, and other activities and outings. Some dens might have additional small fees to cover materials used in Den meetings. There are additional fees for special programs such as sleepovers and sports nights. We do some voluntary fund raising activities, such as a raffle, and the usual scouting popcorn sales.

Our program is run by an enthusiastic group of parent volunteers who organize a variety of fun activities throughout the year, designed to promote the ten goals of Cub Scouting:

  • Character Development
  • Spiritual Growth
  • Good Citizenship
  • Sportsmanship and Fitness
  • Family Understanding
  • Respectful Relationships
  • Personal Achievement
  • Friendly Service
  • Fun and Adventure
  • Preparation for Boy Scouting

In addition to the den and rank advancement programs, we have many other pack activities each year. Here are some typical examples:

  • Blue and Gold Banquet
  • Construction Derby (fill a gym with a cardboard city)
  • Indoor Rock Climbing Sleepover
  • Campfire and Camping Overnight
