"I promise to do my best
To do my duty to God and
To help other people, and
To obey the Law of the Pack."
Thank you for visiting our Web site and for your interest in Pack 793. Our 1st through 5th grade Scouts come from Holy Rosary School and Parish, West Seattle Montessori, and other schools in West Seattle. Our Chartered Organization is Holy Rosary Parish located at 4200 SW Genesee Street, and most of our meetings are held in their Parish Center and School Hall.
Pack 793 has been around since March 1st 1955 and has a long tradition of teaching boys about citizenship, service, leadership, values, and a respect and love of nature.
We have Pack events every month and our Dens each meet at least once a month as well. We always welcome new members and pride ourselves on making Scouting a fun and safe experience for all of our boys. Feel free to contact us if you would like to join our Pack, have any questions, or would like to visit one of our meetings.
This Web site is a resource for all of our families to get up-to-date information about our Pack and Dens.
A Clean Sweep!
Our Webelos II Den (Exploding Ice) took first place in every event at the Aquila District Klondike Derby on January 22nd. They won the blue ribbon in the two-man cross-cut log saw, fire building/cooking, first aid, orienteering, snowshoe relay, and the figure eight sled race. They also took home the 1st place trophy for the Great Klondike Sled Race as well as the first place overall trophy. They even got a write-up in the West Seattle Blog. Go Exploding Ice!
Good Grub on the Beach
August - We finished off our 2008/2009 year down at Alki Beach enjoying the sun, water, sand, great food, and a great bunch of Scouts, adults, and siblings.
August - Some of the Scouts and parents in our Pack met with Boy Scouts to help cook and serve food to people in our community.
Super Summer Camp
July - We joined other Scouts from all over our District at the Aquila District Cub Scout Day Camp. We had a really fun week at camp and got through lots of advancement.
Marching Down California Avenue
We marched and represented Cub Scouts in the SeaFair West Seattle HiYu Parade. It was sunny and warm and the boys had a great time handing out candy to the parade watchers as we passed by. It was nice to meet up with other Packs and Troops and march together too.
How Low Can You Go?
June - We had a really low tide (-4.1) on the 23rd, so we went tide pooling at Alki Beach and identified lots of great sea life. It was nice to have volunteers from the Seattle Aquarium along with our own biology expert there to help us identify all of the cool organisms we found.
June - We spent a sunny weekend at Ensign Ranch near Cle Elum. We enjoyed fishing, canoeing, the giant slip-n-slide hill, ultra-cool Scout activities, the Polar Bear Dive, great food from our grills, and of course the campfire and skits on Saturday night.
We Love to Hike
May - Our Pack took a nice hike through Discovery Park. It is nice to be able to experience a beautiful nature spot right in our own backyard.
April - Not content with beating the pants off all the other racers at our Pack Pinewood Derby, Tiger Cub Quinn went on to take first place overall at the Aquila District Pinewood Derby
Three, Two, One, Go!
April - We had a great time, got to see some cool-looking cars, and got a little whiplash watching the speedsters fly down the track at our Pinewood Derby this year. Thanks to everyone who helped make our Derby great this year!
Bringin' Home the Bacon
March - Our annual Scouting for Food expedition in the North Admiral area was fruitful indeed. We brought about 800 pounds of food to the West Seattle Food Bank and stayed to help them categorize and store the food.
With God in Our Lives
February - Our Scouts celebrated Scout Sunday with our Parish community. We helped out at Mass by serving as ushers, greeters, lectors, gift bearers, and altar servers. Some of our Webelos Scouts were presented with the Parvuli Dei religious award.
We Couldn't Get Enough
February - We joined Scouts from other Packs at the big Aquila District Marble Tournament. Our Scouts had a great time and managed to place 1st in the Tiger division, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the Bear division, and 3rd in the Webelos division!
January - That was the sound we made screaming down the snow tube runs at our annual snow tubing night up at Snoqualmie Pass. Hot cocoa and treats topped off a nice night in the snow.
Lagging, Knuckling Down, and No Hunching
January - Don't know what "Lagging", "Knuckling Down", and "Hunching" mean? You must have missed our annual Pack Marble Tournament this month. We had a great time and kept all the marbles we knocked out. Don't worry though, you can still make the big District tournament next month.
We Brought Home the Gold!
January - Both our Webelos Dens travelled to Ensign Ranch to compete in the Aquila District Klondike Derby. Between our two Dens, we took 1st place in five of the six events and had several second place finishes as well. In addition, the Webelos I Den took home the first place over-all trophy for the derby, and the Webelos II Den took first place in "The Great Klondike Race" and brought home that trophy for a complete sweep! Special thanks to the Scouts from Troop 282 for showing us the ropes.
Knockin' 'em Down
November - Our Pack joined other Packs in the area for the Aquila District Cub Scout Bowling Tournament at the West Seattle Bowl.
October - Check out the fun pictures from our annual Pack pumpkin carving event.
A Beautiful Campout
October - We camped out near Mason Lake this fall.
A Great Start
September - We held our annual Pack Kickoff Meeting at Lincoln Park with games, snacks, hot cocoa, and a nice hot fire! We welcomed several new Scouts into the Pack and got to meet some new leaders too.
Part of History
September - Our Scouts were able to join in a unique rededication ceremony for the new statue of liberty plaza at Alki Beach. Take a look at this article, slideshow, and video from the West Seattle Herald.
