We have a lot of families joining Pack 793 which is very exciting! This is a good time to remind everyone that we put together a Guidebook at the beginning of the year which is available to all on the website. The Guidebook is designed to provide an overview of the Cub Scout program and will continue to be updated from time to time.
The Guidebook can be found under the Resources menu on the website or you can click the link to the left.
If you see anything that should be clarified or modified, please reach out to any of the Den or Pack leaders.

BSA guidelines permit BB gun and archery shooting under the supervision of trained and currently certified Range Officers. Range Officers are trained and certified by Council approved National Camping School certified Shooting Sports Directors. This training is for adults, age 18 or older, interested in leading a shooting sport activity at Day Camp, Camporee, etc. Range Officer certification is granted for 2 years and must be retaken after 2 years in order to maintain certification.
The Boy Scouts of America uses responsible outdoor activities to promote character development and values-based leadership training. Shooting sports have the ability to attract and retain youth in the movement. Millions of young people participate in one or more of the sports annually – archery, rifle shooting, shotgun activities, etc. – guided by adult volunteers who have the skills and knowledge to provide quality programs in a safe and effective way.
The key to safe and effective unit activities is informed, trained, and conscientious unit leadership. Various activities can present some degree of risk; those risks can be mitigated by training and commitment of BSA volunteer leaders. When activities are properly conducted under the appropriate guidelines, they can be safe, fun, exciting, and rewarding.
The certification offered at this training is geared toward Cub Scout Range Officers, though Boy Scout level certification is possible with enough notice. This training is also open to Scouts interested in serving as camp staff Range Assistants, though youth would not receive certification for this training.

We will be helping out again this year during the morning masses on Sunday May 10th and the Saturday Evening Mass at 5 PM at Holy Rosary Church.

The flowers will be available at the doors. All you have to do is show-up and hand-out flowers at the mass you are already planning on attending.
This is a great way to continue to show support for our Church.

Details on the District Pinewood Derby can be found here and the Pack 793 Pinewood Derby Rules are posted in the resources and can be found here
- There is a lot of great information on Pinewood Derby physics. This is one that you and your scouts may enjoy. Please note that your Pinewood Derby car must follow the Pack 793 rules. Your car must use 4 wheels and not be powered!
Parvuli Dei Class Sign-up
We are gathering all scouts interested in working towards the Parvuli Dei award in scouting. Pack 793 will provide all materials for this effort. We will schedule approximately 6 classes within the availability of the scouts that are interested. The classes will be led by an instructor and will require in-class and at-home work. Once the scout has completed all requirements, they will be presented the award at a future Holy Rosary Mass.
