Welcome to Cub Scouting!

This video answers the top five questions new parents had about Cub Scouting when they first joined.

The scouting.org website contains some excellent beginning information about what scouting is and what you can expect from the experience.

The pack uniform for 1st grade and above is a Blue Scout Shirt with a Council Patch and Unit Numbers for Pack 559.  This can be obtained from the Scout Shop where the staff will be happy to assist you.  The closest Scout Shop is located at: 6202 Bloomington Road, Fort Snelling, MN.  A scout book, neckerchief, and advancement patches will be included with your dues and do not need to be purchased.

Thank you for your interest in scouting!  It is a fantastic opportunity to bring families closer together.  We hope to see you soon!

Updates for the week of October 25th

Posted on Oct 20 2021 - 11:15pm

It was really great to see everyone attend the Bobcat Ceremony at Woodbury Lutheran Athletic Field. Congrats to all the new Bobcats! There are no meetings planned for this week. To help with communications, I will be updating the calendar if any den meetings are scheduled outside of our regular Tuesday meeting. 

Popcorn Updates (Week 4)

Posted on Oct 20 2021 - 11:09pm

Week Four has been completed and we keep inching closer to our goals!

  • Scouts have sold $9,200 in popcorn so far this year! We are so close to our goal of $10,000!
  • If you have inventory that you will not be selling, please contact Ryan to start the return process. We can use the remaining inventory for our storefronts. 
  • Sales will conclude on Monday, November 1st. 

Thanks again and great work!

Popcorn Updates (Week 3)

Posted on Oct 13 2021 - 8:56pm

Week Three is in the books and the Scouts continue to with strong sales!

  • Scouts have sold $8,403 in popcorn so far this year! With the smaller number of scouts this year, I am really impressed. Let's push to $10,000!
  • Cub Foods was another excellent Storefront location. We were able to pull in over $2,000 over 2 days, which was $150 in sales for each Scout. 
  • 3rd Act is the next Storefront location. It is only 2 shifts, but it's their Oktoberfest celebration. There are still Storefront spots open!  

Note: If you have popcorn that you feel that you will not sell, please contact me so that we can return it. I need to keep an eye on the inventories since we are limited in the amount we can return.  

Thanks again and great work!
