JOIN CUB SCOUTS

Thank you for visiting the Pack 684 website - - PACK 684 is a Gold Standard Pack and winner of the National Summertime Award seeking excellence in everything we do in providing the best program possible for the scouts! 

What differentiates us from the other outstanding Packs executing BSA aims to develop scouts character, citizen, and personal fitness PREPARING BOYS FOR LIFE?  We are an ACTIVE Pack characterized by FUN, creativity, servant leadership, purpose, organization, and a sense of family.  The largest Pack in the District (approximately 90 scouts out of 1,000 in the District) but with a small town feel; 1 in every 4 eligible boys at Sangster Elementary School is in Pack 684.  We have scouts from Newington Forest and local private schools as well.  Our size provides a level of adult activism that is hard to beat. 

Eligible boys may join Pack 684 at any time by contacting our Recruitment Chair, Bill Peyton, via e-mail at wmpeyton@cox.net. Other points of contact include our Committee Chair Craig Morris via Craig.Morris@ams.usda.gov or our Cubmaster Kevin Sproge via cubmaster684@gmail.com.

Pack 684 offers assistance to families in need so that financial hardship will not be a bar to Scouting for any boy.  All decisions on assistance are made on a case-by-case basis and will remain a private matter between that family and the Pack leadership.

You might find the other attachments useful as well such as "About Us", "Cub Scout Basics", and "Cub Scout Levels" in the menu to the left.  You might also wish to go to BeaScout.org or Scouting.org.  The photos of sample Pack activities attached may take a few moments to open.  If you're considering scouting, we would welcome the opportunity to have you join us for an outing and see who we are and what we do. 

Summer Camp Information - Updated 4/14/14

Posted on Apr 14 2014 - 7:30pm

SUMMER CAMP UPDATE 4/14/14

 

Old Dominion District has announced the final Day Camp dates and times.  All the changes have been driven by the shifting Fairfax County School District end of school year dates which in turn were driven by the large number of snow days this winter.  The schedule follows below.  Also, day camp early registration has been extended until April 30 to give families time to make decisions based on the new schedule and still have a chance to pay the early bird price.  Further details can be found at:  https://ncacbsa.site-ym.com/members/group_content_view.asp?group=118944&id=333376.

 

 

 

                Just a reminder that each parent will have to provide at least one day of volunteer Den Walker duty for each Scout they enroll.

 

 

 

                Parents, your Scout can get a FREE camp registration if you serve on my Camp Staff for the entire week of camp.  Also, age 14+ Scout/Venturer can earn $75 Goshen Credit or Service Hours for working the entire week?   ODD is still looking for Adults and Teen Scouts/Venturers to work on the Day Camp Staff.  If you have the time, they have a position you can fill!  Interested persons may send an email to oddaycamp@gmail.com to get more information or sign up.

SUMMER CAMP UPDATE 4/4/14

     The deadline for the best pricing to attend camp is rapidly approaching.  If you would like for you Scout to attend a camp, you can sign up by emailing one of the Camp Coordinators below.  Pack 684 will pay the camp bill up front and then you will be able to reimburse the Pack at a later date.  What that means is that once the pack has paid, you are responsible for payment even if your Scout does not attend camp or you must find another Scout to take your place.

Big Changes Coming in 2015

Posted on Apr 4 2014 - 5:29pm

At the end of the 2014-2015 Scout year, the Cub Scout Program will undergo several major changes to bring it more in line with the Boy Scout and Venturing Program so that a boy can enjoy Scouting as a continuum throught his youth, rather than three separate programs.  Information on these changes can be found at:
