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.

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.

We will be going to a points system this year. Each scout family must earn 100 points by the end of the scouting year. The following roles have point values placed on them. You may participate in many small roles or a couple of major roles. Training is available to assist you in whatever you may chose to do. We will be posting position specific info soon we will send an email once this is completed.

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.
