Cub Scout Pack 1151 is one of the longest-running organizations in the Divine Child parish. Sponsored by the DC Men’s Club for over 50 years, this Cub Scout pack has provided friendship, guidance, camping and fun for young boys between the ages of 6 and 11.
The Cub Scout pack meets on the second Tuesday of the month in the Divine Child Elementary School Cafeteria at 6:30 PM. The pack’s primary fundraiser, a popcorn sale in October, has offered the Scouts an opportunity to help themselves by funding pack meetings, camping trips, and annual events like the Pinewood Derby, Winter Klondike and Blue & Gold banquet. Many of the Cub Scouts receive both the “Light of Christ” and “Parvuli Dei” Christian awards, which give the young scout an opportunity to reinforce his spiritual life through Christian awareness. A special rally night for 1st through 5th Graders is held in September of each year, but students are welcome to join the fun and activities at any time during the year!
Boys between the ages of 10 and 18 are welcome to participate in the Boy Scout troop sponsored by the DC Men’s Club. The Scouts participate in many activities, including camping, merit badge work and community service projects. The major fundraiser for the Boy Scouts is the annual Pancake Breakfast held in the Divine Child High School Cafeteria. The troop meets on Wednesdays at 7 PM at Haigh Elementary School on Silvery Lane.
