See Below for Descriptions of many of our pack-level scouting events. Get your Den Meeting schedule from your den leader.
We hold Pack Meetings the third Thursday of August, October, December, February, and April with April being our Crossover event. Pack meetings are for all scouts and their families. They typically include announcements, games, and a chance to work on certain rank advancements and awards. Pack meetings are held in the gym at ASE at 6:30. If we have to change the date due to the gym being unavailable we will communicate with the Pack.
Fall Pack Campout
Our fall campout for the entire Pack is usually near the end of October. We camp at many different facilities around the area. This is for all scouts and their families to attend together. Please remember that Cub Scouts are not allowed to attend anything overnight without a parent/guardian present.
ASE Veterans Day Assembly
Students who attend ASE are invited to wear their Class A uniform to school on the day of the annual Veterans Day Assembly. The scouts have helped with various responsibilities, including color guard and leading the Pledge of Allegiance.
Pinewood Derby is a scout favorite! Our pinewood derby is typically held in the gym at AUMC near the middle to end of January. The cars are distributed to scouts at the December pack meeting. Each scout can enter their car into one of our genre competitions then they will race against everyone in their den. The top cars from each den with then race against each other to determine our pack champion.
Spaghetti Dinner & Silent Auction Fundraiser
The newest event for our Pack is a spaghetti dinner and silent auction fundraiser. Scouts can sell tickets to the dinner to family and friends. The scouts will be responsible for preparing and serving dinner. The pack also holds a silent auction at the event to raise funds for the pack.
Blue & Gold Banquet
Our annual Blue & Gold Banquet is held near the end of February. This is a dinner and awards ceremony for the scouts to celebrate their accomplishments throughout the scouting year. Scouts should be finished with their required advancements for their rank so they can participate in the advancement ceremony for their rank.
Spring Pack Campout
Our spring campout for the entire Pack is usually near the end of March or beginning of April. We camp at many different facilities around the area. This is for all scouts and their families to attend together. Please remember that Cub Scouts are not allowed to attend anything overnight without a parent/guardian present.
The last Pack meeting of the year, in April, is our Crossover event. This is held at the bridge near the Island Club Pool in Eagle Springs. Each scout will walk across the bridge with a parent to their den leader who will remove their current neckerchief and put on the neckerchief for their new rank.
Summer Pack Events
Just because school is out doesn't mean the scouting fun ends. We typically hold three pack events during the summer month. June is fishing, July is a pool day, and August is a day at Main Event or something similar.
Day camps are a great way to spend some time outdoors, go hiking, fulfill some advancement work, and work on service projects as a Pack without the commitment of camping for the entire weekend. Day camps have been held at Jesse Jones Park, Lake Houston Wilderness, and other areas throughout the HKA region.
Throughout the year, we try to find a few service projects that can be done at the pack or den level. Some have been as simple as picking up trash on a hike to making cards for military personnel overseas to building sensory bottles for special needs students. We try to work with organizations in our area to have the most impact in our community.
Webelos Do Your Best
Webelos DYB is a weekend-long campout for 4th and 5th graders and their parents only. They break into patrols and compete in various outdoor skills against each other. There's also an Arrow of Light ceremony for 5th graders. The pack registers as a group for this event that's usually in February.
The Flaming Arrow District holds a three day summer day camp for scouts entering 1st through 5th grade. They get to participate in archery, BB guns, fishing, outdoor games, team building, earn advancements and awards, and more. It's a fun way to spend a few days during the summer.
