Your time is valuable. More than ever, today’s families struggle to find time to spend together. Cub Scouting helps to support your family by providing ready-made opportunities for you and your children to do things together.
Pack 516 is a Family Pack. We are now welcoming female and male youth, Kindergarten through Fifth grade! We would love to have you come check out our Dens as they venture into Crafts, Adventure, Outings, and Fun FUN FUN!
As a parent, you want to be assured that the groups that your children join will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness. The Boy Scouts of America, now "Scouts BSA", has been weaving these lifetime values into fun and educational activities since 1910.
We at Pack 516 are happy to now offer our Cub Scout program to female and male youth grades Kindergarten thru 5th. Cub Scouts isn’t just for boys anymore, turns out Girls like doing this stuff too!
Each youth needs a uniform (purchased at the Louisville Scout Store), a Den book (used books may be supplied by the Pack if available) and a parent for all activities.
Youth registration/dues are $100 annually and collected in the Fall.
Youth are grouped together in similar school grades to make up six (6) 'Dens'.
Kindergarten - Lion Den
1st grade - Tiger Den
2nd grade - Wolf Den
3rd grade - Bear Den
4th grade - Webelos Den
5th grade - Arrow of Light Den
Each Den meets independently 1-2 times a month through the school year and has volunteer Den Leaders (one or more parents) who organize the activities that follow the requirements in their respective Den book. Youth work through their Den book during the school year and 'Advance' to the next Den in the Spring. Most Den activities are organized via Email or a software program called ScoutBook (there's also an App).
All the 'Dens' combined together make up the 'Pack'. Our Pack meets as a big group once a month through the school year for fun activities, advancement recognition and service projects. Pack activities are organized by the Cubmaster via ScoutBook. Pack activities are definitely family oriented with parents and siblings encouraged to attend.
We also go Camping, race Pinewood Derby Cars and race Rain Gutter Regatta Boats, so come join in on the fun!
