What is a Pack Meeting?

A Pack meeting includes all the members of the Pack: Cubs, parents, siblings, and leaders. Lion Cubs will be invited to select Pack meetings with an age appropriate, quick paced agenda.Typically, at least one parent attends with the Cub Scout but often it is a family affair with siblings and occasionally even the grandparents in attendance. The meetings run an hour or so with some special events lasting longer.
