We are the primary Pack for Williams Elementary School, but all are welcome to join the fun. We have dens for boys and girls in Grades K-5. We meet once a month as a Pack (usually 7pm on the 3rd Friday of each month) and individual Dens meet once or twice a month to work on achievements and earn rank. Other Pack events include the Raingutter Regatta, Pinewood Derby as well as Fall, Winter and Spring campouts at various state parks. We have also had campouts at the Houston Zoo, Battleship Texas and the U.S.S. Lexington.
