About Pack 59
Pack 59 is the oldest Pack in San Antonio! Chartered by American Legion Post 592, and meeting at Alamo Heights United Methodist Church, Pack 59 serves girls and boys in kindergarten through fifth grade from across San Antonio. We strive to teach children about Community, Family, Outdoors, and Self through a set of fun, organized activities.
The full Pack meets on a Monday, once a month, to gather, celebrate, and have fun together. All meetings are held at Alamo Heights UMC, and all Cub Scouts are expected to attend with their parent or guardian. Siblings are always welcome, and can participate in all our activities.
Each Cub Scout belongs to a Den, determined by their grade level. The Dens meet 1-2 times a month in addition to the Pack Meetings, and this is where the majority of the Cub Scout program takes form. Dens may meet at Alamo Heights UMC, or other locations around San Antonio, as they work on Activity Badges and earn their Rank requirements. Cub Scouts learn about Citizenship, Spotsmanship, Outdoor Skills, but also Art, Engineering, Science – – a well-rounded, hands-on education; and its fun! Den meetings set their own meeting days and times based on the needs and preferences of their families.

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 boy you are and the person you will become.
Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade (or 7, 8, 9, and 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 Boy Scouting and Venturing.)
The ten purposes of Cub Scouting are:
1. Character Development 6. Respectful Relationships
2. Spiritual Growth 7. Personal Achievement
3. Good Citizenship 8. Friendly Service
4. Sportsmanship and Fitness 9. Fun and Adventure
5. Family Understanding 10. Preparation for Boy Scouts
