Welcome to the Flourtown Cub Scout Pack 173 web site.
Recruitment Open House at Ambler YMCA
Our District (Baden-Powell) has asked Pack 173 to help spread the word about Scouts! Ambler YMCA is hosting "Ambler YMCA Day" We were asked to do a rain gutter regatta with at least a minimum of 10 tracks since they think this will be a huge attraction. We will also be setting up a "Match Box" Pinewood Derby track.
The YMCA is expecting over 3500 youth, so we need all the help we can get! Please feel free to sign up for multiple shifts.

The Registration Form to be used for this trip is available here. Each participating family must submit a form by the pack meeting on Friday, April 20th. The price of the trip is $25/adult, $12/sibling and cubs are free. Make checks payable to Pack 173. Each cub must have a parent or guardian on the trip.
Although we all like to do as much as we can electronically, please get Jane the hard copies of everything. If you send electronically, please also mail, bring to a meeting or physically put them in Jane's mailbox. Also, we have the April 20 deadline in there for planning purposes. we do all of the shopping and cooking and need an accurate head count, so please stick to it.
We're changing up Friday night’s meal a bit and only promising hot dogs and snacks. All meals on Saturday will be provided as well as breakfast on Sunday. We will continue to go paper free, so please remember to pack your mess kits! We will not have paper products. The Pack has mess kits for sale, so if interested, let us know and we’ll get you more info.
There will be a hike on Saturday. Bring your fishing equipment, as there’s some good fishing nearby. We’re hoping to hit the BB and archery ranges, but need to see if we have qualified instructors on the trip. We need a campfire skit/joke/story night on Saturday, so come prepared. The Pack has a box of rockets, so we may have the boys launch them on this trip.
Here’s where we could use some help:
For those new to the camping trips, they provide a lovely opportunity to get to know others in the Pack community and the kids have a blast. Do not wait…fill out your forms now and join us at Resica Falls!
