SCOUTING

Asbury is the charter organization to Cub Scout Pack 350 and Boy Scout Troop 350

Cub Scout Pack 350 (Grades K – 5th)

Boy Scout Troop 350 (Grade 6 +)

Pack 350 was chartered at Asbury Church in 1984 and re-charters each January.   We’re part of the Impeesa District within the Occoneechee Council.  The Pack currently consists of more than 50 registered Cub Scouts and 17 registered Adult Scouters. We currently have the following dens: Lion (K), Tiger (1st Grade), Wolf (2nd Grade), Bear (3rd Grade), Webelos (4th Grade), and Arrow of Light (5th Grade).

 

Pack 350 has consistently earned Quality Unit awards for its program. The Scouts in our Pack receive one of the highest levels in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light. As we partner with Asbury Church, we schedule and encourage our Scouts to participate in service projects and outreach opportunities throughout the year.

 

Cub Scouting teaches values consistent with good citizenship, character development, and physical fitness. Boy Scouts of America has been weaving these lifetime values into fun and educational activities since 1910.Cub Scouting teaches family values and works to strengthen your relationship with your son. Scouting activities can bring added value to the time you already have with your son.

We know that boys do not join Cub Scouting just to get their character built. Boys join because it is fun! Pack 350 is the place to be!

Visitors always welcome!

Where fun and advancement meet!

Pack Meetings

The Pack Meeting is a monthly gathering of all dens (Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos) and is led by the Cubmaster. It is the climax of the monthly den meetings and activities and is a celebration of the Scout’s achievements. There are games, skits, songs, ceremonies, and presentations of awards that boys earned during the month. This is where families – not just parents, but siblings and grandparents, too – can see the achievements of their Cub Scouts.

Pack Meetings are held on the third Friday of the month from 6:30 – 8:00 in the North Building at Asbury Church.

During this time the scouts receive the awards that they have been working on during the past month.  There are several Pack Meetings during the year that may be longer, but we make every attempt to be respectful of your family’s time.

The Pack, including families, also participates in other special events throughout the year, including:

Pinewood Derby

Cub Scouts, with the help of their parents, build and race a model car.

Blue and Gold Banquet

A celebration of Cub Scouting’s birthday held at February’s Pack Meeting.

Camping

Overnight and day camp opportunities introduce your family to the camping experience. Pack 350 has overnight camps twice a year – October and April.

Service Projects

We participate in food drives, meal packaging events, conservation projects, and other community service activities.

Dens participate in field trips or site visits to complete Scouting requirements. As a Pack, we hold special events throughout the year, such as rocket launch, pool party, bike rodeo, rain gutter regatta, zoo snoozes, etc.
