Scouts and Counselors, remember to get blue cards initialed when individual requirements are signed off. Once all requirements are complete the counselor must sign the blue card showing completion and date. If the sessions are being held virtually then the counselor should email the scout, parent and Advancement when all requirements are complete. 

Volunteer Opportunity!!! Pack 12 Cubmobile

If you're unable to go on the hiking campout Aug 5-7, consider volunteering at Pack 12's Cubmobile Derby on Aug 6th!  Think soap box derby cars built with 2x4's and driven by Cub Scouts.  Pack 12 needs your help & support for setup, take-down, and returning cars from the finish line to the starting blocks throughout the event.  The Pack has requested 6-10 Scout volunteers.

The Most Important Position In Scouting - Den Chief

Posted by davidpesek on Aug 1 2022 - 1:00pm
Some might think the SPL or Scoutmaster are the most important important positions in Scouting but you would be incorrect. All positions are important but Den Chief is an opportunity to help younger Scouts experience the excitement of Scouting. This position teaches great leadership skills and also helps the Troop by demonstrating the excellent scouts we have in our unit. This often results in those young scouts wanting to come to Troop 448. If interested let Mr Pesek know.
