Gatherings are mostly outdoor


Per BSA policy, COVID-19 vaccines are encouraged


Masking is welcomed, but not required

Family Camping


Meal Plan Mitigation

We pitch tents, eat, and adventure together at campouts.

Everyone washes hands and wears food prep gloves when prepping and cooking meals. 

Calendar Changes

Our Calendar events are held mostly outdoors, rain or shine. This works best for our youth and will continue indefinitely. 

Some activities may be held indoors as of 2022 such as rock climbing. The occasional Pack Meeting, overnight Lock-Ins (giant slumber party), and Police Station visits (or similar) will also be indoors.

Fundraising has been retired and replaced with additional conservation projects and a deeper list of campouts. We do not sell popcorn. 

Special Events


Outdoor Meetings

Bring your water bottles, lawn chairs, and/or blankets.

Born to be wild!

Weekly meetings will continue outdoors and are regularly concluded with free play. Cub Scouts in Pack 285 are ‘Born to be wild!’ and relish the freedom away from indoor classrooms.

We follow the safety guidelines of Pinellas County Schools, so if school is not cancelled, neither is Cub Scouts. Leaders may move meetings inside in the event of inclement weather.
