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".

Caroling at Carillon

Posted on Dec 4 2016 - 6:24am

This Tuesday we will not have Den Meetings. Instead, we will have our annual caroling trip to the Carillon. PLEASE MEET AT THE FOOD LION ON LAWNDALE.  We will meet at Food Lion at 6:40 and walk from there to The Carillon (they do not have parking on-site for us). Scouts should wear their uniform shirts and can add a santa/elf hat, antlers, or bells if they like. Some Dens made cards last week. If you would like your Scout can make another handmade Christmas card spreading cheer before Tuesday. We will need parent assistance to help keep track of the boys while walking and to help them get organized to get into the building. 

Advancement Requirement Changes

Posted on Dec 3 2016 - 8:53pm

This past week the message below was recieved. It explains that the advancment requirements for each rank in Cub Scouts has changed. This should make obtaining rank slightly easier for all boys. New books or leader guides will not be issued until next summer at the earliest, but most of the changes are easily understandable. This came out on Wednesday and is very fresh, however; I wanted to pass along in case parents started recieving information about it. Den Leaders will continue as they have choosing the easier route for the Scout regarding the different requirements. IF you have any questions, please speak to your Den Leader or Cubmaster Chris.

Parent Help needed

Posted on Nov 26 2016 - 6:14pm

We are scheduled to do Christmas Caroling at the Carrillon on Tuesday, December 6th (next week). At this point, we do not have a piano player. We normally have a piano player to help keep time and provide some entertianment for the residents. We will sing about 5 songs, fairly common carols that evening. If anyone can play the paino for us or knows of someone who could play on the 6th at 7:00PM, please let Chris know ASAP. We have some sheet music if it is needed.
