Welcome ! Pack 316 climbing higher since 1976

Follow us to Pack 316

Since 1976, Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church has supported Scouting in Greensboro, NC by serving as the Charter Organization for Pack 316. Located at the corner of Battleground Avenue and Pisgah Church Road, Mt. Pisgah UMC offers its facilities, guidance and support to not only the Cubs but a strong Boy Scout Troop and Venture Crew. We are all very grateful for their 38 years of dedicated support.

Pack 316 continues to recruit and train parent volunteers to serve with their sons as leaders within the Pack. We are part of the Guilford District of the Old North State Council and our Council has one of the finest training programs around.  In conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America’s official web site, www.scouting.org, we continually update our training and program in order to provide the highest quality and safest experience for boys in our nation.

We can look back at those who have come through Pack 316 as Cub Scouts in previous years and see doctors, firemen, law enforcement officers, state troopers, successful businessmen, ministers and many others and truly know that the program, time, effort, and sacrifice that has been made on their part has made a positive difference. Thank you for visiting our site and please encourage your son to "Go Scouting".

Pinewood Derby Pit Day and HELP

Posted on Feb 18 2017 - 8:27pm

This coming Saturday we are trying to offer a pit day for you to run your car on the track and see how it performs. A practice day like this has been requested in the past. However, we will first need to move the track, supplies, and set up at Catherial of His Glory prior to practice. Help will be needed from about 11:00am until about 4:00. A sign-up will be sent out as soon as it is ready for help with the Set up on 2/25 and the actual race on 3/4. We ask that ALL participants in the Derby have some family member help out with multiple spots. 

Pinewood Derby rules

Posted on Feb 18 2017 - 7:59pm

New rule- The HEIGHT of your car with wheels attached cannot exeed 3.0 inches. This is a new district rule that was just announced. (if you have already built your car and it exceeds 3.0 inches, it will be allowed to race in the Pack race but CANNOT advance to the district race.)  Attached are the Pack's official rules for the Pinewood Derby. The date for the Derby is tentatively set for March 4, but may be move one week or so if we need to.

Scouting for Food

Posted on Feb 11 2017 - 9:12pm

Great Job Everyone! 

I know somethings may not have gone as planned, but we still had a trailer full to take to Greensboro Urban Ministry. We don't have the totals yet, but you can be sure the effort and donations were appreciated.

Blue & Gold Committee

Posted on Feb 11 2017 - 9:09pm

Parents are needed for the B&G committee. The base plan is in place, just a little help is needed on details. 

If you would like to help out, we will meet during this weeks Den meetings. We will gather at 6:45 in the Whobody Room upstairs (it is on the opposite side of the hall as most of the rooms off a small hallway). This will last about 20 minutes during den meetings. If you are helping a Den Leader on Tuesday, please continue to do so and email pack316gso@gmail.com to express your interest.
