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 2013-14 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).
