If you are not yet old enough to join Boy Scout Troop 303, fear not! For all those younger than 11 who would still like a lot of the experiences the older boys get, you can join Cub Scouts!
Cub Scout Pack 303 is a pack located in Swansea, and like Troop 303, is hosted at the American Legion Post 303. When you have completed your Cub Scout adventure, you can move up and join Troop 303 if you would like to continue your American Legion BSA Scouting experience. You are not required to join Troop 303 after Pack 303; you can elect to join whatever troop you would like (but why would you want to? ☺).
Pack 303 can boast very personalized attention to all of their cub scouts, with a parent to scout ratio close to 1:1 (Parents are required to accompany their child(ren) to the meetings). If the cubs have a sibling that is not in Cub Scouts, and you would rather not pay a babysitter, they can surely be brought along. In fact, this happens regularly. Also, Pack 303 regularly participates in American Legion events, such as Flag Placement on veterans graves, and marching in the Memorial Day Parade with Troop 303!
The schedule for the meetings are one hour den meetings each week, three weeks out of the month. The fourth week of the month, there is a pack meeting that lasts from 1 hour to 1½ hours.
Here is a brief list of the recent activities we have done in the past years.
