Cub Scouts

We are Boy Scouts of America Cub Scout Pack 2, chartered to Northwest Hills United Methodist Church, serving families in Austin's Northwest Hills neighborhood and Doss Elementary school.

For more information about Pack 2 and Cub Scouts in general, please contact our den leader, Jason Rios, or attend our annual Angry Birds Recruiting Event, held at the Doss Elementary blacktop area on Sat, Aug 20, 2016, from 10am - 12pm.  See the Pack 2 Registration page for more details.

Pack Meeting This Sunday, 12/04/16, 3 - 5 PM

Posted on Nov 29 2016 - 11:18am
Our December Pack Meeting is this Sunday from 3 - 5 PM in the NWHUMC gym. This should be a fun one!
 
As part of celebrating the holiday season, our Scouts will write "Thank You" cards to our Texas Army National Guard troops stationed overseas. This has become a Pack 2 tradition during this time of year, and it's a great way for families to talk to their Scout(s) about the importance and sacrifice of our soldiers around the world fighting for our freedom and the freedom of others.
 
We will also continue the Pack 2 tradition of sponsoring families from T. A. Brown Elementary School who have signed up requesting assistance with holiday gifts for their children. As I'm sure many of you already know, T. A. Brown Elementary was closed indefinitely due to safety concerns with the structural integrity of the building. The students are now being relocated to Reilly Elementary School and Allan Elementary School. Each of our Dens will sponsor a family and work together to purchase gifts for the families. Hopefully we can do it in time to have the gifts collected at the Den Meeting. The list of families should be posted at Doss later today, so look for more information from your Den Leader soon.
 

I would also like to ask you to talk to your Scout(s) about any holiday traditions that your family celebrates. The BSA curriculum for the month of December focuses on the Scout Law of being cheerful, and we will have our Scouts talk about "celebration" and how they celebrate this holiday season with family traditions.
