The Pack

Cub Scout Pack 9 is part of Boy Scouts of America, Greater Tampa Bay Area Council (Fort Brooke District) and serves boys from 6 to 11 years old in northwest Hillsborough County, Florida. We are chartered by American Legion Post 147 (17383 Gunn Hwy, Odessa, FL 33556)

Our pack meets monthly during the school year on the fourth Tuesday of the month at McKitrick Elementary School cafeteria at 6:30pm.  Check the calendar for specific meeting times.  Pack meetings are a time for awards and recognition, games and competitions, demonstrations and teaching, and announcements of upcoming events.  
 

Dens

Our pack is made up of a number of dens. Boys are grouped into dens by age group:

  • Tigers - 6-7 years old (first grade)
  • Wolves - 7-8 years old (second grade)
  • Bears - 8-9 years old (third grade)
  • Webelos I - 9-10 years old (forth grade)
  • Webelos II - 10-11 years old (fifth grade)
There may be multiple dens of any age group depending on the number of boys in the pack. Dens are lead by an adult Den Leader. There may also be Assistant Den Leaders, and/or a Den Chief. A Den Chief is a Boy Scout (12-18 year old) who assists the Den Leader and helps to run the Den. Dens meet one to four times a month outside of pack meetings.

More information on Pack and Den leadership positions can be found on the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council 

Parents

Cub Scouting is a family oriented program. Many of the advancement requirements the boys must complete require input and/or participation in some form or another by parents and family members. The Pack and Den leadership is made up of volunteer parents. Parental involvement is essential for development of a strong Pack and its Cub Scouts.
