We are rolling out the welcome mat for you!!!

Welcome to Pack 161!

Thank you firstly for visiting our website. We are excited to share our pack with you .

We meet every Tuesday night from 7-8pm for Den Meetings
Pack meetings are every fourth Tuesday from 7-8 pm

Meetings are held at our charter organization:
First Christian Church of Garland
115 S. Glenbrook Dr
Garland, Tx 75040

We are right in the heart of beautiful downtown Garland Tx!

Our mission is to provide a safe place for youth to explore, socialize, and learn about our world through many adventures.

The Scouting program is arranged in dens by grade level.

Lion Kinder
Tiger 1st grade
Wolf 2nd grade
Bear 3rd grade

Bobcat must be earned first before receiving any rank. This is the introduction to the basics of scouting every youth must know to have a successful time within the program.

Pack 161 has many events that we participate in thorough the year. 


Pinewood Derby
Raingutter Regatta
Scout Skills Workshops
Cookouts
Museum visits
Parent and scout training sessions
2 weekend pack wide campouts a year one in the fall and one in the spring
Webelos may attend a campout every month (varies by den)

As with every Excellent program, we always need financial help to ensure a quality experience for our scouts. Pack 161 participates in several fundraisers through the year to supplement funding for many of our events. If you know of any companies that are willing to donate services, supplies, or match fundraiser money please let us know. Every little bit helps.

Popcorn Sales
Camp cards
Dos Banderas
Raffles
and several other mini events.

Scouting for Food February 16 8:00am


Image result for scouting for food
This Saturday meet at Luna Elementary 1050 Lochness Ln, Garland, TX 75044 at 8am. Please go to the bathroom before arriving as we do not have access to facilities.

We will have donuts, water, and gatorade available to fuel up for a good collection. 

Temperature calls for a high of 64 degrees, so dress warmly, you will be in the elements for a long time. Dress in your scout uniform to represent well. Wear a hat for sun protection and most of all comfortable well fitting shoes. We do not want to send anyone home with blisters and sore feet.  BRING A REFILLABLE WATER BOTTLE.

We will be splitting into teams to tackle the various neighborhoods.  Once teams have completed their designated areas, return to Luna Elementary to give Jana the collections. She will take a tally of gathered goods.  Please remember to place 10 items per bag. This will ensure a smooth count and transition to take to the donation center.  All items will be used locally and not send out of city.

RULES:
Do not go into someones home.
Do not let scouts get out of your sight even if they are using the buddy system.
Respect peoples property and do not play on or run around their yard or get rowdy.
We must have two adults with every team going out to collect.
Suggest to bring a cart, wagon or buggie in order to ensure quick collection and ease of transport.

When approaching a house, ring the bell ONCE... wait a few moments... ring again...wait a few moments then say thank you respectfully, and move on.

When asking for donations, scouts, state your name, unit and reason for collecting ie. I am so and so with Pack 161, we are collecting canned goods for a local food pantry. Our units goal is 3000 cans for this drive. Would you be able to help us out and in turn help those in need in our community? If they say no, which will happen, graciously thank them for their time and move on. Do not push or plead, simply move on.

If you need too get a hold of me during the day my number is 214-454-5273 I prefer text if at all possible. I am hearing impaired and phones are difficult. I will be waiting at Luna during the duration of the collection drive. If there are any emergencies please contact me with your location, and I will bring a first aid kit. If it is a dire emergency, please call 911, then call me with your location I will help with the necessary next steps.

See you all soon!

Wanted!

Pack 161, just like the Army, is looking for a "few good men and women" to aid the pack in a successful scouting year.

With your help, we can spread the load amongst many so that no one person is overwhelmed or overburdened by it all.

This is YOUR pack. It is only as good as its volunteers.

The following positions are NOT LIMITED to those who wear a uniform! If any of the mentioned positions appeals to you please let Heather Barrett or Jana Reph know.

Our pack requires active participation to help make it smooth operation and an enjoyable and meaningful experience for scouts and their families. Pack 161 is a family oriented pack. We want to include everyone in on the fun.

This url link has many of the leadership roles and the responsibilities that come with the role. Please browse this and see if anything matches your talents. This list only covers the basic Pack structure. It does not cover the "small stuff", but it gives you an idea of what the pack needs. Please note the information came from another council, so you will see that council listed in the instructions. Both Circle ten and Viking council follows very similar structure. There may be slight differences in wording and setup, but close enough.
