Welcome to Pack 60 in Papillion, NE


Pack 60 is the oldest pack in Papillion. We are sponsored by the American Legion Post 32, located in downtown Papillion. We belong to the Wagon Wheel District, and Mid-America Council

Scouting can help young men and boys enhance close relationships with their families and God, while developing strong and desirable traits of character, citizenship, physical and mental fitness. Scouting also provides boys leadership opportunities and helps them develop habits and attitudes of good citizenship.

Cub Scouts is a family program, and parental help is the key to a successful scout. The boys need their parents' help with achievements and electives.

Each scout starts as a member of a den, but is a part of a much larger network of scouts that will help support their growth and development throughout their scouting adventures. Memebers join a Cub Scout pack and are assigned to a Den based on their grade. Each den is lead by a Den Leader, which is a trained parent volunteer. Den meetings will be planned by the leader, and include games, handcrafts, hikes, and other outdoor fun, practicing skits and stunts in preparation for the next Pack meeting and taking part in simple ceremonies and songs.



Pack Information


Our pack typically meets on the fourth Monday of the month. There are a few months that meeting dates have to be changed due to the activity. Dens meet one to two times a month, on a day of the week that the Den Leader has decided on.
As a pack, we do various activities on top of the pack and den meetings. We have two camp outs every school year, one in the fall and another in the spring which are scheduled on a Saturday. There is no requirements to spending the night, but is is encouraged to at least attend the daytime activities.
We also participate in a cleanup effort with the VFW in Papillion. They give us use of their land as a camping site at no cost, so as a payment we help with picking up garbage and sticks on the property.
Other activities that the Pack participates in are, and not limited to, popcorn sales, Pinewood derby, family cake bake, Scouting for food, and our much anticipated Blue and Gold Banquet.

Den Information


Den meetings are scheduled by the Den Leader. Your den leading with give you a calander at the beginning of the school year with the anticpiated meeting dates. All advancements and achievements are typically completed at these meetings. The leader will keep track of what each scout completes, and report it back to the Pack leadership to purchase the awards earned. Each leader is a parent, and hours are all volunteer. There is great pride in Pack 60 leadership, and all they do for the scouts.

Ranks in Cub Scouts:

Lion Pilot Program




Kindergarten Boys, age 5-6 years old

As a Lion, your kindergartner will make friends, laugh loud, gain confidence, discover nature, and most of all...have fun! He'll experience the Scouting concept of character development, leadership, citizenship, and personal fitness through engaging, and exciting adventures!! Your kindergartner will have a blast exploring the world around him in ways that fuel his imagination and creativity. Together, you'll take the first steps down the path to success.*
Den meetings are 1-2 times per month. Lions will attend selected Pack meetings to complete certain requirements. The Pack meetings that are option, will be the decision of the den. Our past lions have decided to attend all Pack meetings, with a success.
Lions will participate in two flag ceremonies throughout the school year, with the help of the older Cub Scouts.
Awards and advancements will be issued as Lions complete their activities. Advancements are stickers that will be placed in their Lion Activity book. After the completion of the 5 required adventures, each scout will receive their Lion badge (at this time, we are unable to wear it on the official BSA uniform).
