FAQ on Joining Scouts

Who can join?

Cub Scouts is open to boys and girls in Kindergarten through fifth grades.

How often do you meet?

Each grade level will form a ‘Den’.  Dens typically meet once a month to work on badge requirements together.  Together, all the Dens form a Pack.  Pack 165 meets once a month on Monday evenings at 7pm in the OTE Cafeteria.

What Den will I be in?

Each Den is named after a rank, represented by an animal.  Scouts are assigned to the Den aligned with their grade level in school.  Lions = Kindergarten, Tigers = First Grade, Wolves = Second Grade, Bears = Third Grade.  Older boys are in a Patrol unit.  Webelos I for Fourth Grade and Webelos II for Fifth Grade.

What happens at a Pack meeting?

Scouts execute a flag ceremony to open and close each meeting.  Fun skits are performed and hilarious jokes are told.  Awards are granted to scouts!  Important announcements are made.  Prizes are won!

Where do I buy a Uniform?

The local Scout Shop is located at the Frank Fickett Center, off I-35.  Pack 165 uses the ‘half’ uniform, which requires all pieces worn above the waist.  A Scout needs a cap, uniform shirt, neckerchief and slide, scout emblem, council shoulder patch, den number patch, and belt.  Don’t forget the belt as all awards come as a belt loop badge!

Is there a guide to help me put on all the patches?

Yes, there are many guides online.  HERE is a link to a good one.

How often do you go camping?

Pack 165 schedules an overnight camping trip once per semester.  Scouts are not required to spend the night.  Campouts are open to the entire family.  Saturday is typically the big day with activities scheduled the entire day, ending with a Pack potluck dinner.  Click this link for FALL CAMPOUT info.

When can I join?

Pack 165 is hosting ‘Join Scouting Night’ on Thursday August 29 at 7pm in the OTE Cafeteria.  Come fill out an application and pay your dues!  If you cannot make it that night, please come to any of the upcoming Pack meetings and ask for an application.

Camp Mabry is an 800+ acre facility established in 1892, making it the third-oldest active military installation after both Fort Bliss and Fort Sam Houston.

It was named for Brigadier General Woodford H. Mabry, the Adjutant General of Texas when the camp was founded.  The camp was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.

We will have an opportunity to visit the free Texas Military Forces Museum on site.

Lexington Sleepover 2018

The overnight trip we have planned this year is to the USS Lexington Museum in Corpus Christi, on December 8-9. The cost is $30 for each registered Scout, and $55 for each parent or sibling. Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast are included. Attendees will sleep on the ship in the original Navy bunks. Families are welcome, but all attendees must be at least 5 years old. Male and female attendees will sleep in separate quarters.

Pack 165 will meet at the Lexington Pier at 3pm on Saturday, December 8. The estimated drive time to Corpus Christi is 4 hours,15 minutes plus any stops. We all must check in together.

The Boy Scouts of America requires all overnight event attendees to bring a printed copy of the BSA medical form. Adults attending overnight trips must take the BSA Youth Protection Training class, online at, and provide a certificate of completion. You can provide these forms to Bo Griffin. They will be securely destroyed after the Spring campout.

Please verify your family schedules; and if you plan to go, fill out the google signup sheet below. We need to confirm the exact number of guests before this month, and the museum offers no refunds after October 5.

The Pack did this trip in 2015, and it was amazing.
