What happens when my child is in Scouts BSA

They meet across the hall a little later. It's a natural and smooth transition. In 4th grade, Webelos Scouts start working with the Scouts BSA Troops, and 5th Grade they work with them on completing their Arrow of Light before "crossing over" to the Troops.

Tradition of Excellence

We are an elite program that teaches scouting skills in a fun and rewarding way. There is no stress to perform, but through hard work and team work, we all advance together, we compete in camporees together, and we have fun doing it.

From Lions to Eagle

Our Elementary School Cub Scouts start on the Bobcat Trail, and over the years learn more and more, until completing their Arrow of Light in 5th grade. At that point they are ready for Scouts. With many Scout skills already mastered, the path to Eagle is about learning to work in a Patrol and perform service to the community.

Pack 18 was recognized by BSA National as a "Gold" Pack in 2018, the highest level on the Journey to Excellence.

Experienced Leadership

Cubmaster, Jon Garber, is in his second year as Cubmaster. Prior to that, he was a Den Leader for 3 years and an assistant Cubmaster for one. Recognized by the South Florida Council and Seminole District for his excellence, Jon Garber is a recipient of the golden sparkplug award.

Den Leaders Katie Jay-Gordon and Bennett Jay-Gordon manage the younger Dens. In addition to their accomplished professional careers, they are fully trained Scouters.

Alex Hochberger is in his 3rd year as Committee Chair, has also served 3 years as Cubmaster and a year transitioning to Jon Garber as the new Cubmaster.
