LEARN MORE ABOUT CUB SCOUTS Pack 39 - WESTPORT, CONNECTICUT

FAMILIES LOVE TO GET OUTDOORS

Cub Scouts love to get outdoors - and parents love seeing their children having fun in the outdoors. Westport's Cub Scouts Pack 39 is a pack that loves the outdoors, and we get outside as often as we can.

Rain or shine... or fog! we love getting outdoors!

Pack 39 is aN OUTDOOR pack

Pack 39 Westport is a camping pack! Cubs at the April Fishing Derby overnight campout were warm as could be, and looked great as they proudly posed for a pre-Fishing Derby photo with the Pack 39 flag the next morning. The Cubs then had a try at catching fish in the Deer Lake lagoon - a lot of big ones got away!

The pack's special campsite is the Pines at Deer Lake Scout Reservation in Killingworth, CT. Pack 39 has at least two family campouts each year.

Last October, Cubs and their families overnighted at Deer Lake, and hiked the Fat Man Squeeze on Friday morning.

Every campfire creates memories that last a lifetime.

LEARN HOW FUN A CAMPFIRE CAN BE

Cubs love Pack 39's Harvest Campfire at Wakeman Town Farm in Westport. The Farm is a model facility created to educate the community with local healthy food production, responsible land stewardship, sustainable practices and community service orientation. It is also a really fun place for Cub Scouts!

At our Harvest Campfire, the Cubs and their families met the Farm's prize chicken, "Nugget," showed off their amazing jack-o-lanterns, received awards, sang songs, performed skits, and led cheers, including the trademark cheer, "We are the Cub Scouts of Pack 39!"

Pack 39 Cubs also participate in other educational and fun activities at Wakeman Town Farm, like feeding the llamas, seeing a live sheep-shearing, and weaving ribbons around the Maypole. The Wolf Den also completed their "Grow Something" achievement at Wakeman Town Farm.

come hiking with us

We live just a few minutes ride from many great hikes, and do our best to get out on the best local trails.

After a late-February snowfall, the Pack hiked to the top of Popp Mountain, making tracks in the fresh snow and earning an amazing mountaintop view of the Saugatuck Reservoir.

Satisfaction and a great view at the top of Popp Mountain, in the Aspetuck Preserve.

Pack 39 Cubs hiked in Newman-Poses Reserve - property given to the Aspetuck Land Trust by Paul Newman - and each Cub did his best to identify three different animals on the way.

A PART OF THE WESTPORT COMMUNITY

Tiger Cubs (1st graders) visit Westport's Fire Department, the Police Department - and learn how to be safe and smart.

The start of summer is marked by our picnic at Compo Beach. Scouts played beach games, received recognition and awards for their accomplishments, and enjoyed a feast!

Our Tiger Cubs visited NBC Sports studios, and got a behind-the-scenes tour of the football and hockey sets.

WE LEARN BY DOING

At the Maker Faire on Jesup Green in Wesport, Pack 39 welcomes all makers to participate in the iconic Cub Scout event - the Raingutter Regatta.

Over 300 participants - including the town's First Selectman - don Cub Scout neckerchiefs, custom built their own sails and raced wind-powered sailboats, and ring a brass bell when they crossed the finish line.

At our Blue & Gold celebration, the Wolf Cubs taught the entire pack (including parents) the Cub Scout Motto, "Do Your Best" - in sign language!

Pack 39's Bike Safety Rally, with the Cubs getting a bicycle safety demonstration in the Greens Farms Church parking lot from a champion professional cyclist and then sharpening their cycling skills in a round-robin of bike exercises.

Siblings and family members are welcome at our events - and have a fun time participating and learning with the Pack. And Pack 39 welcomes both boys and girls to join Cub Scouts!

Last summer, Pack 39 Cubs completed an eight-mile bicycle trip on the rails-to-trails route on the Pequonnock River Trail. Pack 39 has at least one outdoors event each month in the summer.

About Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts are broken into a small group called a pack. The pack you join is up to you. You can look for a pack chartered by an organization you support, or simply choose the one closest to your neighborhood. With tens of thousands of Cub Scout Packs across the country, it shouldn’t be hard to find one that fits you and your family. Each pack has dedicated leaders and volunteers who are tasked with teaching Cub Scouts both fun and valuable lessons that will help them progress in the program and in life. But what makes Cub Scouts truly unique is the opportunity it gives the entire family to be involved in each child’s development. From volunteering with the pack to leading activities at home, parents can take full advantage of the extra time they’ll have participating in their Cub Scout's life.
