Welcome!

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 2016-17 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 2016

    popcorn_image5

    That’s right! It’s that time of year again to dust off your uniform and get out there and sell popcorn! Show and Sell will be the weekends of 9/24 (Sat and Sun) and 10/1 (Sat and Sun).

    2016 Popcorn Show & Sell – Shift Schedule

    Take orders (individual scout selling) will commence after the first pack meeting, where our Popcorn Kernel (David Fryer) will give a popcorn talk and distribute the glossy order forms the scouts can take home.

    Take orders must all be gathered and submitted to Trails End by Tuesday, October 11, but we will need to wrap up order taking by Saturday, October 8. Take order forms need to be submitted to your den leader by October 8.

    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. Online sales do not credit towards district prizes, but the Pack will be giving prizes for online sales.

    Please realize selling popcorn should not be considered an optional activity for our loyal scouts (Tigers are optional).  It is all our duty to contribute to popcorn sales, which is our only fundraiser for the whole year to help fund all of our scouting activities.

    Each scout is expected to support the Show and Sells and also sell some popcorn independently. Each scout should each try to sell $250 worth at a minimum (that’s only 10 to 15 bags).

    Plus, who doesn’t want to earn PRIZES!
