Pack 566 Den Meeting Page

Den Meetings are a gathering of same aged cub scouts

For our Grade K to 5 (Lions, Tigers, Wolfs, Bears and Webeloes One and Twos Cubs:

A Den Meeting is a gathering of same aged Cubs. When a Den gets to be 10-20 members it may be split into two dens of the same year with separate den meetings. Typically, at least one parent of each Cub attends the meeting which runs about an hour or so with some special events lasting longer. Pack 566 generally meets weekly during the school year. The 2nd week of the month is a Pack Meeting (K-5) and the rest are Den Meetings. When Covid is on the rise we meet outside, typically at Kevin Moran Park, far left end next to tennis court. We will try to work in some tours as Covid guidelines allow and parents feel comfortable. These tours may include a field trip to a local destination such as the fire station, sheriff's office, musuem, nature trail, or other locale of interest. Cupertino school districk CUSD requires that no meeting of its children can be at a persons home.
