😎 Pack 553 has a new look! 😎

Posted Jul 18, 2022

Pack 553 is sporting a new T-shirt!

Below is a sample of the royal blue 50/50 cotton/poly blend T-shirt with gold screen printed designs. The new logo is printed on the back of the shirt, and the Pack number and city is printed on the left chest. We understand that many of you just purchased the Pack T-shirt last school year (2021), so you and your scout may continue to wear the old uniform through this coming school year as we phase out the old T-shirt design.

Interested in purchasing the new T-shirt?

Reach out to a Pack 553 adult leader. Shirts are $10 each. You may submit payment via Venmo (to @Pack553 or "PACK FiveFiveThree"), cash (to a Pack 553 adult leader), or check (payable to Pack 553). More information about sizing can be found here.


Questions? Just ask! We're happy to help!

WE HAVE A NEW CUBMASTER πŸŽ‰πŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰πŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰πŸ™Œ

Posted Mar 21, 2021

Ladies and Gentleman, I give you Jeremy Smith (everyone please applaud) as your new Cubmaster! Jeremy has served as Assistant Cubmaster in the past, but the military stole him from us when he was due to be Cubmaster. But we stole him back! And you will all be in fabulous hands!!! You can meet Jeremy at the April Pack event/Hike.

Thank you all so much for a wonderful year of scouting! Parents and leaders, you have all given so much for these kids! To have such a successful scouting year in the midst of a global pandemic was not easy, but you all came together with smiles under those masks, and made it awesome!!! Parents, please thank your den leaders! They have done everything we have asked of them and more all year long. You have all exceeded my expectations month after month after month. So, you know, don't let me down in April and May! I will miss all of your scouts' smiling faces, but will be wishing you warm weather and low humidity. It has been a pleasure. Thanks for trusting me with your scouts and this Pack.

Adventure On!

Scouting in the age of COVID

Posted Aug 5, 2020

Pack 553,

I am sure many of you are wondering if scouting is going to continue this fall and if so, what it will look like. Well first of all, πŸŽ‰YES! πŸŽ‰Scouting will continue this fall, and to see how, please take a few minutes to watch this video. Of course, feel free to reach out with specific questions you may have. I will do my very best to get you the answers you need.😷


One major difference this year will be how we recruit new scouts into the pack. We will not have an opportunity to recruit from within the school this year. So please, feel free to forward this email to interested families. Have a new family in your neighborhood? Send them to our website www.pack553.net or help them find us on Facebook. We will be pushing out more virtual recruitment in the coming weeks.


I hope to see you all at Space Derby this Sunday!πŸš€


Adventure On!


Cubmaster Naomi
