Did we miss your recruiter?

The boys did a great job inviting new boys to join the pack!

If your son earned his "Recruiter" patch but did not receive it - let us know. 


To earn the patch, which is worn below the right uniform pocket, your son’s guest needs to join the pack.


Only new Cub Scouts need to fill out apps.

Everyone pays the $100 yearly registration fee.

Be sure to let me know if you would like to set up a reduced fee/payment plan.

If you cannot attend Thursday, please drop apps/fees in my mail slot at 836 S. Lombard – as soon as possible! 


See Popcorn Flyer for all the info on documents page!

All popcorn-related questions can go to Brian – 773.255.3606

If you are doing online sales, we are: 

Des Plaines Valley Council, Twin Lakes District, Pack 4023 (Unit)


Chad Bohlmann has set up a great web site for the pack! (Many thanks, Chad!!!)

We will be filling in with more info as time goes on.

The official calendar will be kept on the website, and many informational documents will be accessible there.

Advancement (tracking your son’s requirements) will be done at Cub Trails – link under "HOME" at top left.

See your den leader for log in info.



To make a pack run without burning out the pack leadership, we need to spread the wealth of responsibility around.

If each parent does one job, no one will have to do TOO much.

We will have sign-ups at the pack meeting for committees to manage our various pack projects and events.

Duties range from setting up Blue and Gold Dinner decorations to judging the finish line at the Pinewood Derby.

The jobs are fun, and they make all our jobs easier!


As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
