Pack 566 Pack Meetings

What is a Pack Meeting?

A Pack meeting is when all the members of the Pack meet together. At least one parent attends with the Cub Scout, but often Covid permitting its a family affair. We are staying outside whenever possible. The meetings run an hour or so with some special events lasting longer.

When and Where are Pack Meetings Held?

As of Fall,2021, per the Pack 566 Covid Protocol, Pack Meetings are being held outdoors at Kevin Moran Park in Saratoga on 2nd Thursdays of the month starting at 7pm. We will meet at the far left end of the park next to the tennis court. As Covid situation changes, we may move meetings back in-side, possibly to Menlo Church*, our chartering organization. We will find a rain solution by the time it rains.
*Pack 566 has no religious affliation with Menlo Church.
