Cub Scout Pack 108 is chartered by American Legion Post 276 in Beech Grove. Pack 108 draws primarily from within the Beech Grove city limits, although a few scouts are from outside this area. We serve boys entering first through fifth grade.
Interested in joining Scouts?
Pack 108 is always looking for new boys who want to experience the adventure and camaraderie that Scouting has to offer. While we focus or recruiting efforts at the beginning of the school year, boys can join at any time. Call 317-697-3700 or click "Contact Us" to the left to request more information on how to join Pack 108, or just come to one of our meetings (see the schedule below). The Pack meetings are for all boys. Tiger Den Meetings are for First Grade, Wolf for Second, Bear for Third, and Webelos for Fourth and Fifth. For an introduction to Scouting, go to the Boy Scouts of America Web Site and click the "Cub Scouts" tab at the top.
Holiday World Campout Due to exceptional popcorn sales this year, the Pack will be going to Holiday World! We'll be camping out Friday July 15th and Saturday July 16th at Lincoln State Park (5 miles from Holiday World).
We are getting excited about our Holiday World trip. Here are a few things to know for people registered to go:
The Pack will be staying in the primitive/youth area of Lincoln State Park and visiting Holiday World and Splashin Safari. Holiday World is a great park with free beverages and free sunscreen. Included with the Holiday World admission is admission to the Splashin Safari waterpark. Everyone should plan on bringing swimming gear. The time in the Park is family based. Plan to stay with your children at the park. The Pack will not be in charge of any children on Saturday. Tickets to the park will be distributed at the campground on Saturday Morning. Holiday World does not allow coolers or outside food to be brought in.
Families will be responsible for their own transportation to Holiday World and camping gear (tents, groundsheets, lawnchairs, etc.). RVs are not allowed in the youth area. The youth area does not have shower facilities, but Holiday World does in the waterpark.
We will arrive on Friday, July 15th. The Broadwells will lead a caravan leaving promptly from the Library at 5:30, or you can travel independently to the Park (many people are leaving earlier).
We are in youth area 3 of the youth campground area. You will need to pay normal park fees to enter the park. Then proceed to the Campground area, and tell the staff that you are with the Cub Scout Pack 108 in youth area 3.
A maximum of 7 vehicles can be in the youth camp area, so plan to pull in, unpack your gear, and return your vehicle to the overflow area. Vehicles with extra seating capacity will be given preference in the youth area, so that others can be transported to and from the overflow area.
On Saturday, Pack families will be visiting Holiday World/Splashin Safari and on Sunday, Pack families can explore Lincoln State Park before heading home. Remember that 2-deep leadership is required and that scouts may not stay in tents with non-related adults.
We are scouts! That means we need to practice good "leave no trace" principles - meaning we need to properly dispose of all waste, leave what we find and make sure that the campsite is completely clean before we leave. Everyone should plan on staying at the campsite until it is clean. We cannot transport firewood from Marion County; we will buy firewood onsite.
Families are responsible for their own lunches on Saturday; the Pack will provide the following meals:
Note that Holiday World is on Central Time (It's 9:00 at Holiday world when it's 10:00 in Indianapolis). So you'll get to sleep in a bit compared to home, but you'll be eating dinner later than normal. Families can eat dinner in the park independently if they like, to maximize time in the park. The Amusement park is open from 10am to 10 pm, and Splashin Safari is open from 11am to 8 pm. Again, these are Central Time zone times. The Pack does not plan to meet up at all in the park.
If you want to bring snacks for your family or to share, please do so!!
This is one of the most awesome things the Pack has ever done, and perhaps the farthest we have traveled. We'd love to get pictures of it. Mr. Broadwell Will be bringing a notebook computer, so it would be great if he could get copies of your pictures from your SD card or phone on sunday morning before everyone leaves. These will be used on the web site.
Back To School Night July 26th both Hornet Park and Central are having back to school nights from 4 to 6 pm. We are in need of scouts and adults who can run a table to give information about the Pack. We are not doing sign-ups that night.
Sign Up Night August 11 at 6:30 pm at Hornet Park Elementary in Beech Grove. The Pack will be doing sign up night. Sign up fee is $65 for new Scouts, and $55 for returning Scouts. This includes a Scout Book for this year, Dues through 2017, a subscription to Boy's Life Magazine, and a Shirt for New Scouts. Additional Shirts will be avaialble for purchase in both youth and adult sizes.
The Pack needs help staffing this event. We will need parents to help new Scouts and their parents by answering questions, helping with paperwork, and doing activities with the boys. We also need volunteers to be at Central Elementary and South Grove to redirect anyone who comes there to Hornet Park. Please contact Mr. Broadwell if you can help.
Pack Meeting (All Scouts) will be Monday September 12 at Centeral Elementary at 6:30 PM in the Gym. Enter through the Side door. Scouts should wear their Uniform.
Fall Festival Parade Pack 108 will be Marching in the Fall Festival Parade on the morning of Saturday September 17th. Specific meeting time and location will be announced soon.
