Welcome to Pack 81, Austin Texas

Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 81.

Our pack meetings are held at 6:30 pm on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at Kocurek Elementary. Pack 81 is part of the Thunderbird District, which belongs to the Capitol Area Council based in Austin, Texas. If you live in Austin, or plan to come to Austin, please contact us from our Contact Page for general comments or information about joining our Pack.

Is that you?? Are you the one we’re looking for??

If you are in kindergarten through the 5th grade and would like to have lots of fun going camping, fishing, hiking, going on cool trips (spending a night on the USS Lexington aircraft carrier), building cars and racing them and meeting new friends…then Cub Scout Pack 81 is looking for YOU!

Now is the perfect time for you to sign up for Cub Scouts and have fun all year round!

What is Cub Scouts about?

  • Cub Scouting promotes: self-worth, self-discipline, team-work, cooperation, importance of family, good citizenship and much, much more.

What kind of things do Cub Scouts do?

  • We go camping at least 4 times per year where the whole family can go and participate.
  • There are skills that Cub Scouts learn while having fun as well as making new friends, and learning about the world around them. There are many opportunities for the scouts and their families to enjoy the outdoors and each other. You and your child get the chance to experience all kinds of new and adventurous things.

Don’t have camping gear, don’t worry, we can tell you what you need to camp for the first time.

Come and Join in on the FUN!

Many of our Pack's adult leaders took the Youth Protection Training two years ago in May/June.  That means it's time to do it again.  Let's make sure everyone gets YPT trained.  This year, we'd love to see ALL our adults are covered by Youth Protection Training (YPT).  Follow this link and scroll down to the Red bannner and click there https://www.bsacac.org/training/adult-required/youth-safety/

Cyber Chip

Posted on May 10 2020 - 4:01pm

Earning the Cyber Chip each year for your age level is an important safety measure in Scouting.  And now, there's a belt loop award in Scoutbook!  Just go to Scoutbook / Advancements, and scroll down to Electives to find the Belt Loop - and that will provide links to the activities.  Ask the committee if you need help finding it.  Also don't hesitate to work on any requirements or electives as a family, and keep earning those rewards.

You can still go camping!
