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, Gene Sampson at genesampson@mris.com or our Cubmaster at 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.

Free Pinewood Derby Track

Posted on Jan 3 2016 - 7:33pm

Free to a good home, our 2-lane, 32 foot (four 8 feet sections) antique wooden Pinewood Derby track.  It's a little bumpy down the track and nothing like Pack 684's aluminum track.  But, it has served Ethan well and he is ready to pass it on to someone who will enjoy using it with their friends.  It's seen countless hours of track time with Ethan and his friends and really helped us build better cars since we purchased it.  (Note that its assembled size is 32 feet.  That requires a pretty large straight and flat space).  Dog in photo for scale!  Craig

Welcome Back!
