Welcome to the official site of Cub Scout Pack 17, Wilton, CT.  The pack consists of about 100 boys in grades 1 through 5, and meets once a month in the cafeteria at Cider Mill School on School Road in Wilton (usually, please see the online calendar for the specific time and location of each pack meeting and activity). A PDF version of the Pack 17 2014-15 activities calendar is available for downloading and printing.

During the month, smaller “dens”, comprised of 6-8 boys, meet separately.  These dens are organized according to age: Tiger Cubs (1st graders), Wolves (2nd graders), Bears (3rd graders), and Webelos I and II (4th and 5th graders, respectively).  Den meetings focus on doing age specific activities and earning advancement and awards through field trips, hands-on projects, etc.  We really have a great time, and we hope you’ll join us.

The Pack conducts a wide variety of exciting activities year round, including the traditional Pinewood Derby and Blue & Gold Banquet, as well as hikes, camping trips, picnics, community service projects, and other fun events.

If you would like more information about joining the Cub Scouts, contact one of the leaders of our pack or the local scout council (CT Yankee Council).

  • Pack 17 Popcorn Sale 2014

    2010_TrailsEnd
    The Pack 17 Popcorn Sale is in full swing! We are in the process of completing the show and sell activity and are on to the take orders. The take order is the most traditional way to sell; going door-to-door with the take order form. Your customer chooses the product(s) he or she wishes to buy and writes the order on your form. You can either collect the money at the time of sale or collect when you deliver the product to your customers a few weeks later. It is advisable to collect up front so you don’t have to make multiple trips back to collect. Take order forms need to be submitted to your den leader by October 21, 2014. Take order forms were handed out at the first pack meeting. If you still need a form, please contact Mark Gilmor, Popcorn Chairman, and he will get it to you.

    Selling online is the best way to sell to your friends and family who live out of town. You can send emails to your customers asking them to purchase Trail’s End products online. Your customers click on the link in your email and can begin shopping right away. They order products online and pay with a credit card, and Trail’s End ships the products directly to your customers. Go to Trails End online sales and create an account.
