Pack 706 meets for our monthly Pack meeting (all dens together) on the third Thursday of each month, September through May, in the Sacred Heart Parish Hall (school gymnasium) from 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM. At the monthly Pack meeting, Scouts will receive any awards that they have recently earned.
Pack meetings often feature a fun activity or a special guest. In the 2017-2018 year, we had a firefighter, and policeman, a group from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and even a member of the Baltimore Ravens who is an Eagle Scout. We have an annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest each fall and an annual "Cake Bake" contest in late winter/early spring.

Den meetings are held on other Thursdays from 6:30 PM to approximately 7:30 PM in classrooms near the Gym Entrance of Sacred Heart School. Regular Den meetings are held September through May, but Dens may also plan activities at times outside of the normal meeting time and in the summer.
The Lion Den (kindergarteners) will meet as a den once monthly and will attend some Pack meetings. The exact schedule is determined by the families in the den.
In addition to the monthly Pack Meeting, the Tiger Den (first graders) meets once per month on the first Thursday of each month.
The other Dens (Wolf - second graders, Bear - third graders, Webelos - fourth graders, and Arrow of Light - fifth graders) mostly meet every week on Thursdays, but is up to the Den Leader's discretion.
During Den Meetings, Scouts work with their Dens on projects, play fun games, and complete requirements for various achievements and awards.
