The adventure starts with Cub Scouts, a year-round family program designed for those in Kindergarten through 5th grade. The program emphasizes shared leadership, learning about the community, family understanding, character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Give your child a valuable gift by encouraging him or her to join Cub Scouts today. The time you invest in your child today will make a difference in the person he or she becomes tomorrow.
Pack 49 is located in the Village of New Lenox. We are a member of the Rainbow Council & sponsored by the Tom E Hartung American Legion Post 1977. Pack 49 was started in 1952 and we have grown over the years. We are proud to say that we are the oldest Pack in New Lenox!!
Our pack is very active, with meetings & outings throughout the year. Cub Scouts is a family activity we welcome family at our pack meeting and other pack activities.Den Meetings:
Scouts meet monthly in groups according to their grade. During this time, Scouts and their leaders focus on games, crafts, activities & work towards meeting their requirements of their rank. We’re currently looking for Lion/Tiger and Wolf leaders. No experience necessary. Pack Meetings:
This is where the Scouts really get to shine!! All Scouts in the Pack & their family typically meet the third Thursday of each month. They share what they have learned and receive recognition for the accomplishments they have made and the goals they have achieved.
In addition to these opportunities, the Pack participates in outings such as hiking, camping, day camp, food drives, ice cream social, rocket launches, Wreaths Across America, pinewood derby, marching in the Loyalty Day Parade, swimming, overnights and so much more. Over Night Camp
