ABOUT OUR PACK
WHAT IS CUB SCOUTING?
Cub Scouting is a neighborhood centered program for boys in grades one through five. Cub Scouting was first organized in 1930, when the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) realized that younger brothers, neighbors, and friends had been tagging along on Boy Scout camp outs, service projects, and other activities but not reaping the full benefits of being a Boy Scout. To accommodate this younger generation of motivated boys, the BSA created Cub Scouting. This exciting and adventurous program became an instant hit. Today, Cub Scouting provides more than two million boys from all backgrounds with healthy doses of constructive fun and an underlying emphasis on traditional values and service.
WHAT IS PACK 1 HONG KONG?
Cub Scout Pack 1 Hong Kong is an official member of the Boy Scouts of America, chartered through Hong Kong International School. Advancement and awards earned through our Pack are officially recognized in the United States and vice versa. We are currently the only BSA Pack in Hong Kong.
WHERE WE MEET
Cub Scouting takes place across our community.
WHO RUNS IT?
Hong Kong International School is our charter sponsor, and our Pack is led by a dedicated Pack Commitee and Den Leaders across various ranks. Most importantly, our Pack, Dens and Activities run on VOLUNTEER power, registration fees, and our own fundraising! Therefore, parents (both moms and dads) interested in having their sons participate must be ready to volunteer and take on their share of responsibilities to ensure we offer a great experience for our boys.
If you have prior scouting experience, that's terrific! But, no prior scouting experience is necessary. We have an extensive How-To library in development and we often Google best practices from other Packs.
We follow the Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best!
The Boy Scouts of America has always been a uniformed body. Its uniforms help to create a sense of belonging. They symbolize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Wearing a uniform gives youth and adult members a sense of identification and commitment.
Effective January 16, 2012, HKIS Administration has agreed that Cub Scouts may wear their Class A uniform on days when they have den meetings or den activities. Cub Scouts found to be wearing BSA t-shirts or other BSA apparel will be asked to change into school uniform.
Please note that the Class A uniform consists of:
To be clear, boys may not wear cub scout t-shirts etc.
We will also adhere to this for our Pack Meetings, thus ensuring there is very little confusion. T-shirts etc. are only to be worn for hikes, beach-clean-up and camping.
