About Pack 1776
In Cub Scouting, you’ll have lots of fun, adventure, and activities with your den and pack. But there’s more to it than that. Being a Cub Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs. Cub Scouting is more than something to do. It’s all about the person you are and the person you will become.
Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys and now girls too through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys and girls who are in Kindergarten through fifth grade (or 5-10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three membership divisions. (The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing.)
The ten purposes of Cub Scouting are:
|Character Development||Spiritual Growth||Good Citizenship|
|Sportsmanship and Fitness||Family Understanding||Respectful Relationships|
|Personal Achievement||Friendly Service||Fun and Adventure|
|Preparation for Boy Scouts|
Pack 1776 is sponsored by Pecan Grove Volunteer Fire Department in Richmond, Texas. Our pack meetings are regularly held on the 3rd Wednesday evening each month at Neill Elementary School from 6:30-7:30 pm. Positive relationships with our sponsoring organization and feeder elementary schools (Oakland, Neill, Patterson, and Seguin), along with adult leadership, allows Pack 1776 to provide one of the greatest Cub Scout experiences around. Pack 1776 is part of the Arrowhead District in the Sam Houston Area Council.
The dedication and commitment of our Pack Committee, Cubmaster, and Den Leaders enables us to have an outstanding program to offer. They spend hours planning for den meetings, pack meetings, camping, and special events. It is this leadership that enables our Pack to offer our Scouts an opportunity to grow and advance.
