| Cub Scout Pack 98 is located in the Prairielands Council, Prairie Fire District located in East Central Illinois. Our Pack is a Quality Unit with BSA Trained Leadership.
Pack 98 serves the youth of Barkstall Elementary School and the surrounding Champaign and Savoy area.
Pack 98 is the Cub Scout Pack located at Barkstall elementary, but is not limited only to Barkstall students. Our emphasis for the boys in Pack 98 is:
Outside activities and learning life skills in a structured setting run by parents.
Cub Scouting is for boys who will be 1st to 5th graders for the school year beginning Summer/Fall 2015. Starting in April, current kindergartners are welcome to attend events with a parent or guardian.
During the Barkstall school year, we meet weekly on Thursday nights from 7-8 PM. Once a month, we have an outdoor Saturday activity for all the boys in the Pack.
The Cub Scout program combines fun with educational opportunities and lifelong values. It helps parents to help their boys strengthen character, develop good citizenship, and enhance both mental and physical fitness. The program also provides boys with a positive peer group and the tools to shape their future.
Pack 98 has consistently been a top pack in the region since its creation in 1998. Created and run by parents of Barkstall students, we are run by trained volunteer parents. We are committed to providing a healthy atmosphere for our sons to explore and learn about their world.
During the 2014/2015 school year (so far!), Pack 98 has provided our boys with these experiences:
