Cub Scout Pack 22

Part of the Natick Community since 1964!

Our Pack is parent volunteer run and all children grades K-5 are welcome to join - though the majority of children go to the Lilja Elementary and Wilson Middle Schools in Natick, Massachusetts.

The pack is in the Metacomet District of the Mayflower Council of the BSA.

The purpose of this site is to provide information to current and prospective Cub Scouts and parents about what the pack is doing and has done, how to join, how to participate, how to help, and other information. If you have any questions or suggestions about the pack or the website, please contact us.

Matthew Chase, Pack 22 assistant den leader and Committee member, created the following presentations as part of his work toward an Adult Leadership Award for Scouts BSA.

His project goal for the WoodBadge course, which focused on working with youth and other leaders in more positive and effective ways, aims to increase retention of Cub Scouts in the program.

Please read them! Matthew wants potential and current Cub Scouts and their families to understand that being a Scout and Scout family isn't always easy, but that staying with it has great short- and long-term advantages that extend far beyond Scouting.

Matthew will continue to edit these documents as he presents to other Scout packs in Natick and elsewhere. Feedback is welcome. Matthew can be reached at mkwjchase@gmail.com.
