Welcome to Pack 117 in Southbridge, VA.




The Committee and Leaders of Cub Scout Pack 117 are committed to providing a quality program of Cub Scouting activities. We place a special emphasis on character development, spiritual growth, citizenship and family.

We will offer a high quality program to all boys in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Our scouts will advance in rank each year, beginning with newly formed Lion Den in Kindergarten and continuing through the Arrow of Light in fifth grade. We will encourage our boys to continue the fun, adventure and development of Scouting by graduating into a Boy Scout Troop. We hope each of our Scouts will continue to advance in the Scouting program, not because of the badge of rank they will earn but because of what they will learn about themselves, their families, others, God and their country.

The Pack is chartered by Swans Creek Elementary School, where we meet for many Den meetings and our monthly Pack meetings.

Pack 117 serves boys in grades 1 through 5 (ages 7 to 11).

We have Dens for all ranks-- Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos I and Webelos II.

Year round, Pack 117 participates in many fun and exciting events and activities, such as:
        • The Pinewood Derby
        • The Raingutter Regatta
        • Fishing Derby
        • Family Campouts
        • Bike Rodeo
        • Blue and Gold Banquet
        • Summer Day Camp
        • Camp Snyder
        • Goshen Webelos Summer Camp

Youth Protection



The Boy Scouts of America value the safety and well-being of your son.

The following link takes you to a message from the new Chief Scout Executive, addressing the BSA's Youth Protection program.

http://www.scouting.org/sitecore/content/BSAYouthProtection/BSA_Communications/parent_letter.aspx

If, as a parent, you have any concerns about the safety of your Scout while participating in a Den or Pack event, please do not hesitate to raise them with your Den Leader, our Cubmaster or Committee Chairman.

We strongly recommend that all adults associated with scouting, even as an adult partner to a scout, complete the Youth Protection Training course.

You do not have to be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America to take Youth Protection training.

To take Youth Protection training go to My.Scouting.org and create an account. You’ll receive an email notification with your account information, including a member ID/reference number.

From the My.Scouting.org portal, click Home then My Dashboard from the menu list. The My Training page displays to take Youth Protection training. Upon completion, you may print a training certificate to submit with a volunteer application. Your training will automatically be updated in our system and associated with the member ID/reference number issued when you created the account.

When your volunteer application is approved, you will receive a BSA membership card that includes your member ID number.

Parent Information


As a parent, you want your son to grow up to be a self-reliant, dependable, and caring individual. Scouting has these same goals in mind for him. Since 1910, BSA has been weaving lifetime values into fun and educational activities designed to assist parents in strengthening character, good citizenship, and physical and mental fitness in youth.

Scouting teaches family values. We know that boys do not join Scouting to get their character built. Boys join because it is fun.
