Cub Scouting is a year-round, family-oriented program for boys in R2 to 5th grade that builds character, confidence, and camaraderie. Cub Scouts Pack 1 is part of the Boy Scouts of America and is chartered by HKIS. Pack 1 is a family-focused activity that is 100% organized and run by parent volunteers.
Scouting provides an opportunity for parents to teach their Cub Scout family values through hands-on activities and outdoor adventures, including hikes, cookouts, and campouts. Scouts learn to tie knots, pitch a tent, kayak, cook over an open fire that they built, use a knife safely, and much more. Cub Scouting provides skills and memories that will last a lifetime.
Pack 1 is organized into dens of 6-10 scouts as follows.
Grade 1 - Tiger Cubs
Grade 2 - Wolf Cubs
Grade 3 - Bear Cubs
Grade 4 - Webelos I
Grade 5 - Webelos II
Scouts meet with their dens twice a month on average for a planned activity or fun outing in order to fulfill requirements for rank advancement. Den meetings are often held at home after school or on the weekend and the schedule is determined by each den. Scouts meet as a Pack once per month, this year scheduled for Monday nights from 5:00-6:30 at HKIS.
What we do as a Pack:
- Monthly meetings for community building, communication, and fun
- Adventure Day trips in the fall and spring
- Overnight campout on Lantau Island
- Cookout and campfire at Tai Tam Scout Center
- Awards and recognition for advancement
- Community service projects (e.g., beach cleanup, food drive)
