Welcome to the Pack 64 website!

Cub Scout Pack 64 is part of the Waapi Lenaswa District of Rainbow Council, and serves the communities of Lockport and Homer Glen in Illinois.  This website is the best place to find out more information about Cub Scout Pack 64 and all of our upcoming activities.

Congratulations to all of our Scouts

Congratulations to all of our Scouts that have earned their rank over this past year!  Good luck to you all as you continue on the Scouting trail!

Pack 64 First Annual Pancake Breakfast
Pack 64 is excited to announce that we will be hosting our first annual pancake breakfast on Sunday, March 15 from 7:00 a.m.– 1:00 p.m.  The breakfast will be held at the Lockport VFW Post 5788 located at 1026 East 9th Street. Many packs and troops have had great success with pancake breakfasts and spaghetti dinners as fundraising opportunities.  We have a great pack, and know we can make this a huge success if everyone pitches in! 

We will need as many hands as possible for the planning and executing of the breakfast!   We will need volunteers the day of the event to help the scouts run this event run smoothly:

  • Collecting tickets at the door
  • Cooking in the kitchen
  • Keeping the food trays full of food
  • Keeping beverages full
  • Keeping plates and utensils stocked
  • Clearing tables
  • Keeping new placemats on the tables
  • Clean-up afterward

Of course, our boys will be responsible for many of these tasks, and we want them to be!  This is a great opportunity for our scouts to show off what wonderful young men they are!  But, we’ll need parent volunteers to assist them as well!

In order for this event to be a success, we are requiring each scout to sell 2-sheets of tickets. That is 12 tickets total.  This includes any tickets you need for your own family.  The costs are as follows:  Adults: $7.00 ($8.00 at the door), Seniors: $6.00 ($7.00 at the door), Children ages 3-10: $5.00 ($6.00 at the door) and Children under age 3 are free.  The original 12 tickets will be distributed at the next Pack Meeting on Monday, January 26th.  (Extra tickets will be available)

We are also going to be creating placemats with advertising on them for local businesses.  We will charge $25 per business to have their company’s business card advertised on the placemats.  We will be photocopying all the participating businesses’ business cards onto large paper to be used as placemats.  We are asking each scout to sell one business-card-sized spot for the placemats. We’re hoping to have enough ads to create two different placemats! 

We will be awarding prizes to the top 3 sellers in tickets and placemat ad sales.  Prizes will be based on the total amount of sales for the Pack and awarded at the April Pack meeting

Hiking Program

Our next hike will be on Saturday, February 7th at 12pm. We will be hiking at Messenger Marsh on Bell Road, just south of 159th Street.

Every month we will be meeting at a different location and going for a hike, rain or shine or snow. During our hikes, we will be looking at nature, enjoying the outdoors, and working on other things based on the principles of Scouting. We will have a turnaround point at 1.5 miles for those who wish to hike for 3 miles, and then another at 2.5 miles for those who wish to hike the full 5 miles.

Pack 64 Library - New Books Added!

Pack 64 now has the beginnings of a great reference library!  All of the books are available to the leaders and Scouts of our Pack.  Do you have a book that would make a good addition to our library?  Let us know!

About Pack 64
We are sponsored by Cross of Glory Lutheran Church in Homer Glen, IL. We have an active program of age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities and meetings. We serve Cub Scout-age boys primarily from Butler Elementary School, but have several scouts that attend other elementary schools in our area. 
   The pack meets one Monday evening of each month (usually the last Monday of the month) at Schilling Elementary School. At each monthly meeting we recognize the work and achievement of our Cubs as they progress through the many achievement and elective requirements in the program. 
   Pack 64 is a family friendly cub pack. We encourage families to attend the pack meetings together and to participate in many of our activities as a family. Cub Scouting provides wonderful opportunities for cubs and their families to share experiences, work together, and have fun. 
   Please join us on a great adventure called "Scouting."
