Welcome !

Thanks for visiting Cub Scout Pack 70 in New Canaan, hosted by St. Mark's Church. Boys from kindergarten to Grade 5 are invited to join us any time of the year. Reach out to the Cubmaster at james.grohsgal@gmail.com for questions or information on how to sign up.

Our Pack focuses on outdoor adventure and community service. This year, we've had a canoe trip on the Housatonic River, a Campcraft event where Scouts from Troop 70 demonstrated camping and hiking skills to the Cubs, a Pack scavenger hunt and overnighter at Camp Sequassen, our annual Raingutter Regatta (this year in the train station parking lot), and a daffodil planting service project at Waveny Park. This winter and spring, we're going on Pack day hikes and Pack campouts, holding our Pinewood Derby, and performing a service project to combat invasive species.

We're coming  back home to St. Mark's for our Court of Honor on Tuesday June 8th at 6 pm (rather than a tentative weekend date at an alternative location). More details to come (including uniform/advancement information), but we're excited to share that news with everyone.

We received this lovely note from Caroline Garrity at the New Canaan Conservancy on Wednesday.

Hi James,
While walking at Waveny on Tuesday morning, I so enjoyed meandering amongst the beautiful, new daffodils planted by Cub Scout Pack 70 this past December. The cheery, yellow blast of color certainly will make all our park visitors happy, especially after this winter! The third photo is of the daffodils planted by your pack the year before on the hillside by the meadow. They look terrific, as well, and appear to be naturalizing. The Waveny Park Conservancy is so appreciative of all your scouts and their parents planting the bulbs and creating this spring splendor.
Many, many thanks again from all of us at the Conservancy.
Happy spring,
