Our Dens

The Pack is the organizational unit for Cub Scouts. Within the Pack are a number of Dens which are smaller units made up of boys from the same age group or grade level. There are generally 3 to 10 boys or girls in each den.

Typical Activites
The Pack meets once per month. Meetings sometimes vary depending upon the nature of the activity for the month. Dens typically meet once per month either at someone’s home, at school, or at some location for a field trip. Pack activities include: Pinewood Derby; Raingutter Regatta; Pack Carnival; service projects such as Scouting for Food, Christmas tree recycling, holiday outreach, visits to Seniors’ homes, Coastal Clean-Up, community clean-up; camping trips, summer day camp, hiking, and fishing; overnight stays on the Pampanito, the USS Hornet, Oakland Zoo and SF Aquarium of the Bay.

WOLVES Den
When a boy or girl first becomes a Cub Scout, his parent teaches him his Bobcat requirements: learning the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack, handshake, salute, sign, and motto. If a Cub Scout has completed the first grade or is 8 years old he may enter a Wolf Den and begin working on his twelve Wolf achievements. Upon completion of the achievements, he or she is awarded the Wolf badge, and may continue to work on Wolf electives in twenty-two different areas.

BEAR Den
When a Cub Scout has completed the second grade (or is 9 years old) he or she begins working on his Bear achievements. There are twenty-four achievements in four different groups: God, Country, Family, and Self. To achieve the Bear rank, the Cub Scout must earn his choice of twelve: one from the first group, three from the second group, and four from each of the third and fourth groups. After achieving the Bear badge, a boy may concentrate on twenty-four Bear elective areas until he becomes a Webelos Scout. Gold and Silver Arrow Points are also awarded for these projects.
