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.

- Scout Day at Lime Rock – September 26 – 27, 2014
You’re off to a great year of Scouting when your unit starts the 2014 program year with Scout Day at Lime Rock or just come on your own for a family fun day. This easy camping event is perfect – just drive up and live out of the trunk of your car. Prepare your meals or buy them at the track concessions and enjoy an all-day program of amateur racing by some of the top rated drivers in stock sedans and open wheeled race cars. Scouts of all ages enjoy this annual event. Camp Friday night – watch races Saturday 9:00 am till 5:00 pm. This is the perfect way to spend a Fall weekend.
You will need your tickets in hand to get in the Lime Rock gate so be sure to get your registration in to the Milford Scout office by the September 17 deadline if you want to receive your tickets by mail. Tickets may be purchased and picked up at the Milford office through September 25.
Scout/Adult Tickets (11 years old and up): $15
Cub/Sibling Tickets (through 10 years old): $7
- Cub Scout Season 2014-15 Kick-Off
As we kick off a great academic year, I trust each of you had a fantastic summer (though you’d be lying if most of you don’t admit you’re glad it’s over, too). Here are a few things we need your help with:
a) The ice-cream social for the new tigers is on Thursday, Sept 4th at 6:30 pm at Wilton Congregational Church – enter through the back. Please help us spread the word with any prospective first, second or third graders that you know!
b) To volunteer for the pack, please let me know. If you can help us on the committee, we welcome you. If not, we still have several tasks that won’t require more than three or four hours total over the course of the year and we will be happy to take what we can get! Providing suggestions for events that we can have, etc. is also contributing. So don’t do it tomorrow – do it today!
c) Instructions for registering are available on the website. Links to the required forms are listed in the instructions. You can go to the “How To Join” page for further information. The fees haven’t changed, so all of last year’s forms work great! Please bring the filled forms to the first pack meeting and we can get this off to a great start.
d) If your boy is not planning to be back, please help us improve our program by telling us why – and of course please add any suggestions on how we can improve the program.
