A WEBELOS requirement is to attend at least one event with the Troop before advancing at the Blue & Gold banquet next year. There are only 2 Camporees offered – one in the spring, and one in the fall. If anyone in the Arrow of Light den has not gone to a camporee, this will be your last chance.
Check-in time is 5:00pm if coming on Friday, and 9:15am if arriving on Saturday.
You will need both full Class A and Class B uniforms, and closed-toe shoes/boots. If you are coming Saturday morning, please plan on eating breakfast before arrival, and pack a lunch for Saturday. We will have dinner Saturday and breakfast Sunday with the troop.
This should be a scout/parent only adventure, if possible. However; if siblings need to come along it’s ok. Each scout must fill out part A and B of the health form before arriving at the campsite. A doctor’s signature is not required for this event. The forms will be collected and kept together for inspection.
Welcome back Scouts! We hope everyone had a great summer. Our first pack meeting is scheduled for September 13th at 6:30pm at Williamson Chapel United Methodist Church.
We’ll play games, award the first den cup of the year and welcome new scouts to our Pack. We’ll also provide updates about this year’s program and all the great activities we have planned. You won’t want to miss it!
This is also a great opportunity to have new potential members come and meet the pack, so if you know of anyone in grades K through 5 that might be interested, please let them know the meeting details.
We look forward to seeing all of you again and to another great year of scouting!

Pack 171 will be holding a flag retirement ceremony at our November pack meeting. Scouts are one of the only groups authorized to retire American flags. This is a very respectful and meaningful service that has meant a lot to those who have participated in the past. All scouts who are in their Class A uniforms will be able to participate in the ceremony. We will have several honored guests join us as well.
If you have an old or worn flag that you would like to retire, please donate it to the pack for this ceremony.
If you are an active duty or retired member of the military, please let us know! As part of the ceremony we would like to honor your for your service. You are encouraged to wear your uniform to the ceremony.
