Who Are We?
We are Brewster Pack 1 and we are part of the Muscoot District of the Westchester Putnam Council of the B.S.A. Our Charter Organization is the Brewster ELKS. Our Pack is made up of Cub Dens, a Pack Committee and your Families. Brewster Pack 1 was established in 1953. We are currently the only Cub Pack in Brewster.
When We Meet
Pack meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, from September thru June (unless notified otherwise), in the J.F.K. Cafeteria. Meetings start promptly at 6:45 and end about 8:00. At least 1 parent or adult family member is required to attend all Pack Meetings with each Cub. Den Meetings are determined by the Den Leaders.
Dens are groups of 5-9 children, broken up by grade level.
Lion – Kindergartners
Tiger – 1st graders
Wolf – 2nd graders
Bear – 3rd graders
Webelos – 4th & 5th graders
Each den is run by a Den Leader and Assistant Den Leader. They meet on a weekly basis, at a time and place determined by the Den Leaders. Leaders must be at least 21 years of age, and can be Male or Female. Grandparents or Friends without active Cubs can also be great Den Leaders. Parents are required to help your Cubs follow the Cub Scout Program, as directed by the Leaders.
The boys and girls of Pack 1 are required to wear their uniforms to Pack and Den Meetings, as well as all other Scouting activities, unless otherwise directed. This uniform is known as their Class-A uniform. We also encourage all Leaders to wear a uniform. The uniform is a key part of Good Leadership and it is very important to set a good example. Once a year the Pack will order tee shirts with our pack logo on them. These shirts can be worn as our Class-B uniform.
Cost / Fundraising
Pack Dues: Each Scout pays an annual dues amount to be a member of the Pack..
Multi-Sibling Family considerations can be made – Consult Cubmaster.
Den Dues – Den leaders will decide if den dues are required.
Fundraisers: Pack 1 sells Christmas Wreaths as our primary fundraiser. We have been selling these wreaths for more than 20 years and the families of Brewster have come to expect them. They are very easy to sell. We also have a raffle at every pack meeting which the boys enjoy very much and look forward to every month.

Signs UP !!
The Cub Scout “SIGN” is a very important part of scouting. It means “SILENCE”.
When a leader puts up the sign, he or she expects everyone (parents included) in the room to show the sign, quite down and come to order. You all will soon understand how difficult it is to keep order in at our Pack meetings. PLEASE remember the meaning of this sign.
