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.

- This Weekend’s Events (Nov. 22 & 23)
Hello Pack 17 Families!
SATURDAY, November 22 @ 10:00AM
For this year’s fall service project, the pack will finalize our trail revitalization behind the Wilton Playshop (15 Lovers Lane). Last year we transformed an overgrown deer path into a four foot wide trail. This year we will complete the last section of the trail that spans the Comstock Brook.
Please bring any tools you may have (rakes, axes, shovels, clippers). Also, a chain saw and/or a gas leaf blower would be helpful.
We will have the boys carry out sticks to a refuse pile and line the paths with branches and rocks. Please take a few minutes during the project to educate the boys on the importance of clean open spaces to the environment we live in, and the role we can all play in keeping them that way.
We plan to be there for about an hour. You can park down by the Playhouse.

Boy Scout Troop 20 Trash Can Turkey Campout – November 22
All Webelos II are invited to the Boy Scout Troop 20 Trash Can Turkey Campout, Saturday 11/22 at Putnam State Park in Redding. Camp overnight or come for the afternoon.
SUNDAY, November 23 @ 2:00 PM
Thanksgiving Basket assembly will more than likely be at the Congregational Church starting at 2pm. We are still waiting for final confirmation from the Church: if the time or place changes, we will obviously let you know. A couple of dens are planning a den meeting around decorating the baskets at the same time and place, and another den is planning to opt out of the thanksgiving basket – your den leaders will confirm to you what your particular den is doing.
Go to the photos page and check out the photos from Pack 17 events and den gatherings.
