How to Interpret the Pack Calendar

One of the questions we sometimes get is – do I have to attend everything on the Pack 205 calendar? The basic answer is no. We use one calendar for all activities – some of them are for the entire pack, some are just for leaders, and some are den specific. This quick post will help you interpret the calendar so you don’t miss out on anything.

  • * – anything with one asterisk is for everyone in the Pack
  • ** – two asterisk indicates an event specific to one den
  • *** – these events are specific to adult leaders / volunteers
  • No asterisk – these calendar entries are catch all events like holidays

For example, Pack Night on the third Wednesday of the month and it has one asterisk. Den Night on the second Wednesday of the month also has one asterisk – because most dens meet at the same time in the same location. Of course, if you have any questions be sure to email us!

Swim Safety CANCELLED

Due to severe thunderstorms, tonight’s swim safety even has been cancelled.

However! Be sure to attend our year end picnic / potluck next week on Wednesday August 14th at Paper Mill Park!

Summer Finale – picnic / potluck

Join Cub Scout Pack 205 for our annual end of summer picnic and potluck! Wednesday August 14th starting at 6pm we will meet at Paper Mill Park pavilion #1. Join us for games, food, and socialization. We will be handing out free Frisbees for the kids. Plan on bringing a potluck dessert, side dish, or beverage to share. Outdoor games and a lawn chair would be a good idea – but certainly not necessary.

Swim Safety Night

Wednesday August 7th will be our Swim Safety night at the University of Delaware outdoor pool. Join us at 6pm for swimming safety skills as well as some free time to splash and play. U of D pool charges guests $5 entry fee, but if you’re already a member, just bring your ID card.

Don’t forget, our year end picnic / potluck will be Wednesday August 14th at Paper Mill Park!
