Join Our Pack
Pack 259 offers a variety of activities so scouts and their adult partners get the most out of the Cub Scouting experience. We are a very active pack with fun activities for everyone.
2016-2017 Dues for new scouts including up and coming Tiger Cubs are $85.00 for the year. This covers Council and National Dues, Pack fees which include all of the kits for Pinewood Derby, Raingutter Regatta, advancement items (rank, patches, and awards), and food/paper products at various Pack events. Also included is a subscription to the popular Boy’s Life magazine. Cub scouts are required to purchase a class-A uniform (official blue shirt and insignia or khaki shirt for Webelos) to be worn at official activities and meetings. We will also be selling Pack T-shirts at our pack meetings. If you are looking for uniform items, you can visit the Council’s Scout Shop in Virginia Beach, shop on-line, or be sure to check out our Pack’s Uniform Closet at the church.
We hold a fall fundraiser selling Christmas wreaths and trees. This helps the pack to buy equipment, books, patches, and camping supplies each year. We use the fundraising program of Mickman Brothers in Minnesota. We also participate in the Tidewater Council popcorn sales. We generally take one weekend and share time amongst the different dens selling at Lowe’s or similar venues.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Law. In an effort to make Pack 259 the best it can be, the Pack is aligning their Code of Behavior with the Boy Scouts of America’s Scout Law.
A Scout is:Trustworthy – Loyal – Helpful – Friendly – Courteous – Kind – Obedient – Cheerful – Thrifty – Brave – Clean – Reverent
In Pack 259, we interpret this law to mean, during Pack Meetings and events, that Cub Scouts and their families are:
- Trustworthy – we follow the rules when playing games
- Loyal – we sit with our Dens and families
- Helpful – we help to set up and clean up
- Friendly – we make everyone feel welcome at the meeting
- Courteous – we are quiet when someone else is speaking
- Kind – we use respectful language only
- Obedient – we listen to, and follow directions immediately
- Cheerful – we maintain a positive attitude
- Thrifty – we take care of Pack equipment and supplies
- Brave – we participate in Pack activities, even if we are shy
- Clean – we wear our uniforms to Pack Meetings
- Reverent – we behave in a respectful manner; this is a church building
Parents, please help your son to emulate these qualities. When all of the adults in our Pack hold the same high standards for our boys, we will all benefit and get the most out of the scouting experience.
