Cub Scout Pack 119 - Sponsored by South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church

Pack 119 is chartered by South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church and is a member of the Apache District of the Mecklenburg County Council. We are a very active group of approximately 100 cub scouts. In 2013, our pack was honored with the Gold Journey to Excellence Award. This prestigious award is given to the Pack whose volunteers have shown an outstanding level of commitment.

    Volunteer

    Pack 119 runs on volunteers

    All of our leaders come from our Cub Scout parents. Your family can pitch in to support your son's Pack by lending a hand at meetings, offering additional assistance with special events, helping to coordinate activities or assuming a leadership position in the Pack. Any support you can give the Pack ultimately benefits your son. It's no coincidence that the Packs that deliver the best program to the Cub Scouts are those that get the most support from  families who work together to make the Pack a better, stronger organization. By volunteering in Scouting, you are also giving your son the gift of your time. What could be more valuable?
