About Pack 59
Pack 59 is oldest Pack in San Antonio! Chartered by Alamo Heights United Methodist Church, Pack 59 serves boys and girls in first through fifth grades, mostly from the Alamo Heights, Terrell Hills, Olmos Park and Monte Vista neighborhoods. We strive to teach children about Community, Family, Outdoors, and Self through a set of fun, organized activities. Dens meet about twice a month throughout the school year. Each Den picks its own meeting times and locations. The Pack has elected to hold den meetings remotely during the first 9 weeks of the academic year. We are using the “Adventure in a Box” program the Den Leaders developed over the summer.
Pack Meeting Location
Pack meetings are generally held on the third or fourth Monday of each month during the school year at the Alamo Heights United Methodist Church.
2018-2019 Pack 59 Calendar
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
