About Us

Pack 346 is currently made up of about 30 Cub Scout families. We meet monthly during the school year for Pack meetings at Metzler Elementary (see calendar). The big events for our scouts and their families are several camping trips which typically involve fishing, hiking, team games, campfire stories, and good outdoor cooking. At Pack meetings, scouts hone their performing talents with ceremonies, skits, and participation in large group games while parents are updated with upcoming Pack activities. Of course, the annual Pinewood Derby wooden car race competition always teaches craftsmanship and the fun of competition. Our Blue and Gold banquet is always a fun event together which traditionally has been followed by the transition of our older Cubs over to Boy Scouts.

Pack Meetings

Pack meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday of the month from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm in the Cafeteria of Metzler Elementary.

Den Meetings

The Den meetings, which usually take place once a week, are a more frequent source of learning, development, and achievement through small group activities, games, and crafts. This gives the Leaders and parents an opportunity for close instruction and guidance with the cubs as well as opportunities to "Go See It" with their Den.


To help support all this fun we raise funds through popcorn sales in the fall and through the Silent Auction during the Pinewood Derby.

Pack History

The origins of Pack 346 stem back many years starting with its formation on September 1, 1994, at Schulz Elementary, prior to the construction of Metzler Elementary, which we now call our home.

Scouting - The Bottom Line...

What happens to a Scout? For every 100 scouts who join Scouting, records indicate that:

  • Rarely will one be brought before the juvenile court system
  • 4 will become Eagle Scouts
  • 17 will become future Scout volunteers
  • 12 will have their first contact with a church
  • 1 will enter the clergy
  • 5 will earn their church award
  • 18 will develop a hobby that will last through their adult life
  • 8 will enter a vocation that was learned through the merit badge system
  • 1 will use his Scouting skills to save his own life
  • 1 will use his Scouting skills to save the life of another person

Scouting's alumni record is equally impressive. A recent nationwide survey of high schools revealed the following information:

  • 85% of student council presidents were Scouts
  • 89% of senior class presidents were Scouts
  • 80% of junior class presidents were Scouts
  • 75% of school publication editors were Scouts
  • 71% of football captains were Scouts

Scouts also account for:

  • 64% of Air Force Academy graduates
  • 68% of West Point graduates
  • 70% of Annapolis graduates
  • 72% of Rhodes Scholars
  • 85% of F.B.I. agents
  • 26 of the first 29 astronauts
