Like every effective organization, Cub Scout Packs have a structure. Understanding this structure and how it works will increase your scout's enjoyment of the program (and leave the parent far less confused).
Groups of 8 to 10 boys meet weekly together as a Den. A Den Leader and an Assistant Den Leader lead each den. A Boy Scout, known as a Den Chief, may also work with your scout's den. Dens are organized by age groups. We have one or more Dens for each group of 1st Graders (Tiger Cubs) , 2nd Grades (Wolf) , 3rd Graders (Bear), 4th Graders (Webelos - 1st yr.) and 5th graders (Webelos - 2nd yr.). Dens in Pack 406 meet on different days, year-round.
The Pack consists of the Dens and their Families. Pack 406 meets monthly for pack meetings as well as other special activities. The Pack serves as a "parent" organization to the dens and provides direction, program support and maintenance of the budget. The Cubmaster, who plans and directs monthly pack meetings and other special activities, leads the Pack.
The Pack Committee consists of representatives from each Den and other volunteer adults who are charged with managing the pack and its programs. Parents are encouraged to volunteer to serve on the committee and attend regular meetings. Meeting dates are shown on the Pack Calendar. The Committee Chair leads the group in planning and organizing the Pack program. The Committee is also responsible for maintaining Pack funds and planning its budget.
Every Cub Scout Pack must have a Chartered Organization. Pflugerville Community Church is our Chartered Organization. They provide meeting facilities and approve leaders. While meeting at Pflugerville Community Church, we respect their facilities' rules.
