About Pack 413

We are a ministry of Christ Covenant Church.  When this organization began the number 413 was chosen to remind all connected with this ministry of the enabling providence of God as embodied in the Bible verse Philippians 4:13.

Our goal is to be a safe place where boys are nurtured and encouraged.  We take our volunteer positions very seriously so one of the first requirements for a scout leader in this pack is to be Youth Protection trained.  Also, we require parents to go over the booklet found in the front of the handbooks with their boys.

Our aim is to provide positive role models, to guide boys in making ethical choices, and to help them develop strong values.  Leaders have both the responsibility and the opportunity to positively influence a boy’s development and to help families better understand their sons by providing a quality program.

Our Pack meets regularly during the school year on Tuesday evenings from 7pm– 8pm.  Once a month we have a Pack meeting that lasts from 7pm until 8:30pm. Several times a year we will participate in Pack outings which occur on days other than meeting nights.  During the summer we take a break from the weekly den meetings to have at least 1 pack event during each month.

What Is Cub Scouting?

Cub Scouting is a year-round family-oriented part of the Boy Scouts of America program designed for boys who are in first through fifth grades (or are 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age).  Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the 10 purposes of Cub Scouting:

1. Character development  6. Respectful relationships 
2. Spiritual growth  7. Personal achievement 
3. Good citizenship  8. Friendly service 
4. Sportsmanship and fitness  9. Fun and adventure 
5. Family understanding  10. Preparation for Boy Scouts 

Cub scouting is designed to instill strong moral values:  build character, fitness, and confidence; and develop citizenship and leadership skills – all within the framework of fun activities.  Parents are encouraged to help their Cub Scout with advancement work, attend Pack meetings, become Den and Pack leaders, and help conduct activities.  In fact the Pack’s success depends on parental involvement. Other ways families can help:  work on electives at home, attend and assist at Den and Pack meetings, attend outings, assist with transportation needs, and participate in fund raisers.

Cub scouting teaches “duty to God and country.”  Scouting has always been known for service to others, a foundation of good citizenship.  Patriotism also plays a significant role in preparing our nation’s youth to become useful and participating citizens.  BSA believes that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without also recognizing an obligation to God, and encourages both youth and adult leaders to be faithful in their religious duties.
