Scout Track

ScoutTrack is the Pack Management system we use to manage our membership information, attendance, and advancement.  The system is used by parents to log their scouts' achievements outside of den meetings, such as belt loop requirements, by den leaders to log scouts' attendance and achievements during den meetings, and by pack leaders to manage advancement and membership.A few facts about ScoutTrack:
  1. ScoutTrack is web-based.  There is no software to install...all you need is a computer with a browser and access to the web to use the system.  Just point your browser to www.scouttrack.com.

  2. ScoutTrack can be updated by both parents and Den Leaders.  This means an end to manual spreadsheet updates for achievements.  When the boys complete an activity outside of a den meeting, parents can go online to view and update the status of the various achievements, electives, and sports & academics belt loops and pins.  Den Leaders can update these activities that are completed in den meetings.

  3. ScoutTrack provides advancement reports to Den and Pack Leaders.  This will improve the accuracy and timeliness of the awards and recognition that the boys have earned.  When the Scout has met the requirements for a Progress Towards Ranks bead, Webelos badges, badge of rank, Arrow Point, Belt Loop, or Pin, the Den Leader and Pack Leader sees it on a report and can make sure it is ordered/purchased, and that the Scout receives it at the next Den or Pack meeting, as appropriate.

  4. ScoutTrack keeps you in touch and informed.  This means that you will not miss important dates and announcements.  The calendar can also display scouts' birthdays!  Using ScoutTrack, you can email the members of your Den, the Den or Pack leaders, update your son's membership record, and view or print a Den Roster or Pack Directory.  There is also a calendar and bulletin board feature where you can view the schedule and announcements for your den and the pack.  Calendar events can be set up by the Den and Pack Leaders to provide email reminders, if desired.
So, how do you get started?

An email has been sent from the ScoutTrack system to the email addresses I have on file for each parent in the Pack.  If you did NOT receive this email, please check your Deleted Items, Junk Mail, or Spam folder.  The email is generated by something called a "mailbot", which some email programs identify as unwanted mail.  If you find the email in one of these folders, you will need to mark this email sender as a trusted sender or "Not Spam" -- this is called different things, depending on your email programOnce you find the email, you will need to activate your account in ScoutTrack.
