» To help other people at all times...

Fall 2018 -  Pack 95 has always provided service opportunities to its scouts and families.  It is part of the Scout Oath, "To help other people at all times..." and the Scout service slogan "Do a good turn daily..."

We take pride in our community and there is so much we can give back.  The Pack 95 Parent Committee would like our cub scouts to participate in at last 2 of the 4 organized service projects or let us know how you've helped your neighbors / community.

  • Nov 3 & 10:  Scouting for Food - Supports Neighbors Inc
  • Jan 21: "Feed my starving children" food packing event
  • Feb 2: Ft. Snelling National Cemetery - Wreath clean up

 

 

Welcome to Pack 95,
South Saint Paul, Minnesota!

Pack 95 serves Lincoln Center of South St. Paul and Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. Through our active boys, parents, and leaders we maintain a fun, safe environment that teaches our young men the skills and values they need to become outstanding citizens in our community and nation.

Pack 95 meets at 6:30 PM the first Tuesday of the month.  Check the calendar for location.  The Dens also meet up to two times a month at locations chosen by the Den and their families.

This web site has all the information you need to keep up-to-date on Pack 95 happenings.  See below for upcoming Pack events and important reminders.  Click on the links above for a full calendar, pictures, useful links or contact information.  Please check back often for updates and new content.

Cyber Chip

Do-At-Home Project - Each fall, as part of our commitment to youth production, scouts are encouraged to complete the Cyber Chip program.   Developed by the Boy Scouts of America with NetSmartz, a program of the National Center for Mission & Exploited Children, this quick program is a start to safe internet and mobile device use.  You can further explore their site for more information and safety tips.

Click here, or the Cyber Chip tab above to learn about the program and then follow the link to the age appropriate site.

We will have the Cyber Chip cards and pledge at the next pack meeting.

Be Safe, Scouts!

 


Attention Den Leaders

August - Have you seen the Updated "Leaders" tab at the top for den meeting and go-see-it ideas? All new den meeting plans for the new Cub Scout program.  Also note the "Training" Tab with information on required and optional training courses for leaders and both of those sections have the BSA's Cub Scout pod-cast.

your family's scouting experience

Whether this is your first experience or you've had a child involved for several years, there are many things you can do to take advantage of the opportunities available. As parents, you have varying roles to play depending upon the program and age of participant.

Direct involvement is highest in Cub Scouting, and decreases as members grow in their responsibility for program leadership and implementation through Webelos, Boy Scouting, Venturing and Exploring.

However, at all levels there are two keys ways you can help:
  1. Show an interest in your son's/daughter's Scouting accomplishments and achievements
  2. Take on tasks in support of the unit's leadership such as phone calls, event planning, driving to activities, or serving in a more formal leadership role as an assistant or primary unit leader.  

Kids do grow up so fast.  The time families spend together in scouting is cherished and talked about at gatherings long after participants have moved on to other stages of their lives. Make scouting part of you own family tradition.

COUNCIL’S WEATHER POLICY:
Decisions for official camp closing will be made by the council's Camping Director. When camps are officially closed, fees will either be transferred to another weekend within the Polar Cubs season. More often than not, they will not close the camps. To check weather conditions for the weekend reference Cannon Falls. A voice mail message will be left at 651.254.9134 each Friday with a weather update.

Annual Ft. Snelling Clean Up
Community Service Project
Saturday Feb 1st

 **UPDATED** SATURDAY FEBRUARY 1st, 2020  Kaposia OA Chapter & District’s Winter Event for Cub & Boy Scouts
FORT SNELLING VETERAN’S CEMETERY SERVICE PROJECT
9:00 AM -- NOON
This is an optional service project that is open to families in Pack 95.  We will help clean up the Veteran’s Cemetery by removing old Christmas decorations etc., and piling them along the roads for pickup. Helping to care for this very important facility that belongs to all of us and all our community is one of the most satisfying projects we have ever undertaken.

  • Meet at the “Activity Center” (a green trailer) at the corner of LaBelle & Nelson Drives, inside the cemetery.  (EXIT 34th Ave. off of 494 right by airport).   Look for Chip Jansen and other Pack 95 kids.
  • Family members or anyone else wishing to join us are welcome.
  • Adults please bring wire cutters. Scouts can bring Sleds to pull piles of wreaths.
  • We also need some adult drivers with open pickup trucks, trailers, etc. to work with teams of older Scouts to pick up and dump the piled materials.
  • Hot drinks will be available, but bring your own camping cups/mugs!
  • SNOW SHOES are permitted and can be very helpful if the snow base stays the same.

This is an all-outdoor event! Dress for the expected weather!  For more info and a map, click Here. (NEW WORKING LINK!)

There will be no advance registration. At check-in, we will make a list of participants from those present.  There will be a patch for this event.
