Does your child like to camp? Have they ever slept on an aircraft carrier?  How about swim in the Frio River? Or maybe cook s’mores over a camp fire?
 
Cub Scouting exposes elementary age kids to these outdoor activities (and more), while simultaneously teaching lessons about leadership, self-sufficiency, and healthy habits.

If you are interested in joining Scouts, or have any questions, please feel free
to email the Pack 2 Cubmaster at cubmaster@pack2austin.com.


 

Pack 2 is a very active Cub Scout group of about 100 1st - 5th graders. Most attend Doss Elementary or live in the Northwest Hills neighborhood of Austin, TX - but all are welcome! 

We're based out of Northwest Hills United Methodist Church (all faiths welcome at our charter organization) in Austin, TX. We belong to the Armadillo District of the Capital Area Council within the Boy Scouts of America.

Meet Pack 2's leaders who are all adult volunteers and have scouts in the Pack.

The Pack is divided by grade into the following ranks: (click on the rank/grade for more info on each)

Tigers - 1st Grade Wolves - 2nd Grade Bears - 3rd Grade Webelos - 4th Grade Arrow of Light - 5th Grade

 


 

Campout and Overnights

Our Pack prides itself in providing the scouts with many campouts and overnights within a 3 hour drive of Austin.  These allow the scouts to explore the world around them with some planned activities (ie hiking, fishing, or playing capture the flag) but also plenty of unstructured time without electronics!  Where possible, these are usually capped off with a ceremonial campfire where the scouts can sing campfire songs, performs skits, tell jokes, and roast marshmallows for s'mores. For the 2018-2019 school year, we are planning the following campouts and overnights:

Other Activities

For Thanksgiving and winter holidays, each den adopts a family from T. A. Brown Elementary School to provide family members with items on their wish list.

In January, we have a very vibrant Pinewood Derby race where scouts, family, and friends compete for speed as well as design (most creative, most patriotic, most scout-like).

Pack 2 leads off the Northwest Austin Civic Association’s 4th of July Parade on Far West Blvd.
