About Pack 270
Historically, Pack 270 has been composed of students at Middle Gate Elementary School, one of four elementary schools in Newtown. From Fall 2014 to Spring 2018, Pack 270 also included students from Head O’Meadow Elementary School in Newtown, following the merger of Pack 270 with Pack 470. We are thrilled that our fellow Cub Scouts from Head of Meadow have decided to revive Pack 470 this Fall. Thus, we are once again composed primarily of students from Middle Gate Elementary. However, this year brings the exciting introduction of girls to the Cub Scout program, and Pack 270 is geared up to accept our first female scouts this Fall. Though we will be co-ed at the pack level, individual dens will still be unisex (either all boys or all girls) as directed by the Boy Scouts of America requirements.
Pack 270 meets regularly in the Middlegate Elementary School cafeteria, usually on the first Thursday of each month. We are proud to be sponsored by the Newtown Lions Club. The pack is typically between 60-90 scouts strong divided into 6-10 dens, with an all volunteer leadership team of 15 to 20 den leaders, assistant den leaders and committee members.
