The Cub Scout program is designed for elementary school age children in grades Kindergarten through 5th, after which they transition to Scouts B.S.A. Each grade in school coincides with a Cub Scout Rank, beginning with Lions in Kindergarten, then Tiger Cubs in 1st Grade, Wolves in 2nd; Bears in 3rd; and finally Webelos in 4th and 5th grade. “Dens” are smaller within the Pack comprised of 6-10 scouts typically in the same rank. The Dens are where scouts will focus on age-appropriate activities and achievements as they advance through their Cub Scout journey. Dens typically meet 1-2 times per month, at a time and place determined by the Den Leaders (parent volunteers who complete leader training and guide the Den throughout the year). We strongly believe in the principal of “shared leadership” and encourage active family participation in our Pack.
The Pack hosts monthly Pack Meetings at St. Aidan's Episcopal Church to recognize all scouts as they achieve their belt loops, ranks and awards. We go on a fall camping trip as a Pack (spouse and siblings are included) and a spring trip. Previous spring trips have included the NASA Space Camp in Huntsville, AL, spelunking in Cumberland Caverns and sleeping with the sharks at the Gatlinburg Aquarium.
Yearly Pack activities include the Pinewood Derby, Rain Gutter Regatta, Old Soldier's Day Parade, Selling Popcorn, and a variety of Community Service Projects.
Cub Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of elementary age children and their parents. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide children through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Family involvement is an essential part of Cub Scouting and parents are encouraged to play an active role in the program.
We are part of the Northern Ridge District, in the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. We are chartered by St. Aidan's Episcopal Church which is where we hold our monthly Pack meetings. Pack 1459 is open to families of all denominations. Our teaching is embedded in the Cub Scout Promise – “to do my best, to do my duty to God and my country.”
