Fox Island Cub Scouts Recruiting New Members

Fox Island's Pack 27 Cub Scouts gathered at a recent Pack Meeting at the Nichols center, June 20, 2023.

The Cubs are recruiting new members (boys AND girls), including Kindergartners and First Graders.  The BSA has launched a new program for Kindergartners, called "Lion Cubs", and girls are now welcome to join Cub Scouts!

Fox Island's first Lion Cubs!

The Lion Cub program is a new Scouting program for Kindergarten boys. Like all Scouting programs, it weaves the concepts of character development, leadership skills, personal fitness, and citizenship into activities that are age-appropriate and fun.

The activities introduce the family to Cub Scouting, and provide an exciting way for the little guys & girls to explore the world around them. The program will fuel their imagination, creativity and fun as they experience the growth Scouting can provide.

At the end of the kindergarten year, Lions will “graduate” into Cub Scouting as a Tiger – where even more fun and adventure will await!

Pack 27 is affiliated with Boy Scout Troop 27, also sponsored by FICRA.
Fox Island boys ages 7 - 10 years old are encouraged to join Pack 27,

Fox Island Sandspit Update - 2012

Fox Island Scouts clean up sandspit propertyThe Sandspit is now open to the public.  
Visitors are encouraged to respect the privacy of neighbors, carry out dog droppings and trash, and park in designated areas.  Continued public use of the property is dependent upon good stewardship by the public, so please keep this area open by doing your part to keep the sandspit clean and safe.



Troop 27 Boy Scouts and Crew 27's Venturers are currently working on trail improvements, brush removal and cleanup of the property and storage buildings.  Several Eagle Scout projects have been underway at the spit since 2012, adding picnic tables, park benches a new staircase to the beach, and other improvements.

Scouts from Venture Crew 27 removed moss from the roof of the old Demolay Clubhouse building recently.




About 50 people attended the PenMet Parks Board meeting on August 20, 2012, where they took feedback from the public regarding the closure, and future plans for use of the property.  Virtually everyone present was supportive of keeping the spit open to the public, except for one person.

Click for larger imagePenMet Board member Todd Iversen made a motion to spend money to install improved signage at the property, to help make people aware of the private property on either side of the spit, and the park hours & other restrictions.  Discussion took place about the main issue concerning the neighbors; the lack of onsite parking. 

PenMet is seeking some evidence of previous parking on the upper lot at the spit property, that will allow the use of onsite parking in the future.  If you have photos or any recollection of cars parking there, please contact PenMet parks.
