Cub Scouts & Pack 24 Specific Info

Cub Scouts is the first part of the scouting trail.  Our program is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. The program primarily runs on the school-year schedule, and scouts can join anytime to begin their path with us.

Each Pack is sponsored by a local organization, called the “Charter Organization”, which provides leadership and guidance, and a meeting place to support and promote the program.  A Pack’s charter organization has no influence on programming or membership; many packs in New England were formed and chartered by community and religious organizations, and all packs operate under the same principles of Boy Scouts of America.

Pack 24’s Charter Organization is St. Theresa of the Child Jesus Paris in S. Attleboro, located at 18 Baltic Street.  Most of our events take place in this location, and we are also fortunate to have access to Thatcher Elementary School and the American Legion Post 312 in S. Attleboro in support of our 8 grade-level scout dens.

Pack-wide meetings with all scouts are once a month, typically on the 3rd Sunday, at 6pm in St. Theresa of the Child Jesus Parish lower level.  Den meetings are grade specific and can be found in the Parent Guide section.

Here are some examples of the adventures we have had over the last few years
