The 449 is chartered by Mt. Pisgah, this is also where we have our Pack meetings every month. All dens meet at the discretion of the Den Leader typically two times a month, usually, a parent will volunteer their house as a meeting spot and rotate among all Den parents, meetings also take place outdoors in parks, nature centers, and other locations.
For parents and children who would like to join: the Pack is a volunteer program run by parents supporting each other, we share the work, we share the rewards, and we share the joy of watching our kids grow.
In order to obtain the full benefits of our program, we need the full commitment from all parents, so that all of our Dens maintain proper assistance and all Den and Pack roles are properly filled. Every year a part of our Leadership retires, and this is when other parents step up and help to keep things running smoothly.Ready to join?
Cub Scouts enjoy outdoor experiences as they participate in the variety of activities such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation experiences, and outdoor games.
How is Scouting done?
“Do Your Best” – this is the Cub Scout motto. Cub scouts love to have fun while learning new skills. To accomplish its purposes and achieve the overall goals of building character, learning citizenship, and developing personal fitness, Cub Scouting uses seven methods:
- Living the Ideals
Cub Scouting’s values are embedded in the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, the Cub Scout motto, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, and salute. These practices help establish and reinforce the program’s values in Scouts and the leaders who guide them.
- Belonging to a Den
The den—a group of six to eight children who are in the same grade and are the same gender—is the place where Cub Scouting starts. In the den, Cub Scouts develop new skills and interests, they practice sportsmanship and good citizenship, and they learn to do their best, not just for themselves but for the den as well.
- Using Advancement
Recognition is important to everyone. The advancement plan provides fun for the Scouts, gives them a sense of personal achievement as they earn badges, and strengthens family understanding as adult family members and their den leader work with them on advancement projects.
- Involving Family and Home
Whether a Cub Scout lives with two parents or one, a foster family, or other relatives, their family is an important part of Cub Scouting. Parents and adult family members provide leadership and support for Cub Scouting and help ensure that Scouts have a good experience in the program.
- Participating in Activities
Cub Scouts participate in a huge array of activities, including games, projects, skits, stunts, songs, outdoor activities, trips and service projects. Besides being fun, these activities offer opportunities for growth, achievement, and family involvement.
- Serving Home and Neighborhood
Cub Scouting focuses on the home and neighborhood. It helps Scouts strengthen connections to their local communities, which in turn supports a child’s growth and development.
- Wearing the Uniform
Cub Scout uniforms serve a dual purpose, demonstrating membership in the group (everyone is dressed alike) and individual achievement (Scouts wear the badges they’ve earned). Wearing the uniform to meetings and activities also encourages a neat appearance, a sense of belonging, and good behavior.
