About Cub Scouts and Pack 378
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, Scouts, BSA (formerly known as Boy Scouts of America) has helped younger boys. Now girls can benefit from the Cub Scout program too. 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 Scouts, BSA 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 Scouts, BSA|
Pack 378 is sponsored by New World United Methodist Church in Arlington, Texas. Our pack meetings are regularly held on the 1st Thursday evening each month at New World United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall from 7-8 pm. Pack 378 has a long history, over 60 years, as an active pack, constantly achieving “Quality Unit” status and remaining a top Scout Popcorn seller. Strong, positive relationships with our sponsoring organization and feeder elementary schools (Butler, Jones, Larson, Peach, Ellis, Sherrod, and more), along with a generous supply of adult leadership, allows Pack 378 to provide one of the greatest Cub Scout experiences around. Pack 378 is part of the Cross Timbers District in the Longhorn 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 and opportunity to grow and advance.
