Join The Adventure

Dear Parents,
We welcome you to Pack 106 and want you to join us in the Cub Scouting program. You will be involved in a year-long program that stresses Character Development, Citizenship, Physical and Mental fitness, AND we do all of the activities in a fun way while having adventures. Pack 106 has a strong emphasis on getting the boys outdoors through camping, hikes and community service. If you enjoy the outdoors and want your boy to learn more about nature, come join us at Pack 106.


With Cub Scouts your boy will join a den. Each den is made up of boys of similar age, most from the same school (usually Shafer or JRE). The dens make up Pack 106. The Pack meets once a month at JRE, the dens will meet 2-3 times per month to work on rank specific requirements.

One of the many benefits you will find in the Scouting program, is watching your boy grow in the program. Scouting promotes good traits that help the boys grow into solid citizens of the community. Your son will gain self-confidence, learn about service to community, and learn outdoor skills to name just a few.

At Pack 106, through the Cub Scout program the Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to:

  • Participate in outdoor adventures
  • Do community service
  • Build self-confidence
  • Arts and crafts
  • Skits and songs
  • Something for everyone!

We welcome boys who are in:

  • 1st grade (Tiger Cubs)
  • 2nd grade (Wolf Cubs)
  • 3rd grade (Bear cubs)
  • 4th grade (Webelos I)
  • 5th grade (Webelos II)

I would be glad to share more information with you about our exciting program. Please feel free to contact me with your questions and to find out how to join.

Yours in Scouting,
Jeremy Odell

    The Class A uniform is available to purchase at the main Boy Scout office in Houston. There is also an office in Stafford. Tell the staff at the store you are joining Cub Scout Pack 106 and they will be able to assist you with what you need.

Camping

    Camping with Cub Scouts is a family event and does not involve backpacking. We have a camping 101 in September of every year. This will give you a better idea of what you will need.

  • 02

    The main items you will need are: a tent, sleeping bag, mess kit, overnight bag, cot or pad. As your cub becomes more interested in camping you can start to add to your equipment.

“We must change boys from a ‘what can I get’ to a
‘what can I give’ attitude.”
