Welcome Back Pack 27!

First and foremost, we hope that you and your Cubs and family are safe and healthy!  This has certainly been a strange time for us all and it is our hope and every well minded intention to resume -safely- as much of our Scouting activities as possible.

Each year Pack 27 Celebrates Scouting's Anniversary Week in March with a "birthday party" called the blue and gold banquet.

This year was a little different...

In March, the School, Pack and Troop 27, not to mention the WORLD went on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Events came to an abrupt end - just before our scheduled Pinewood Derby.  We all hunkered down at home and tried to make it all work - remotely.  As our world went online we all needed to adjust to the new reality.

Back in the Spring, we made the decision that Zoom classes and remote learning for school were more than enough for our students (insert weary picture of kids here), so we decided not to put our Cubs through yet another remote meeting.  We did not hold Cub meetings via Zoom.  We had to cancel the remainder of the Scout year programs.

As we approach the new school year, there will be plenty of changes and new protocols we must follow in order to stay safe, develop strong Cubs, and defeat Covid!

We are working with the school administrators, the school principal and local Northern NJ Scouting Council to plan fun filled events and maintain safety for all.  Please continue to refer to our evolving calendar of events (link on home page), for the latest news and activities for your Cub Scouts!

Yours in Scouting,
