Welcome to Pack 716

Adventure is an experience that all children deserve! Our Pack is a family unit that is focused of creating memorable experiences for the whole family. In today's world all families are stretched thin with sports, homework, and other activities. Our program is a one stop shop for the whole family! Brothers, sisters, moms and dads working, playing, and shaping the future of our youth together. Camping, science, music, sports, religious discovery, understanding diversity and so much more happens in Scouting. Couple that with leadership skills and lessons taught to youth all around the world for the past century and you have a program that the whole family will enjoy.

Our Pack 716 is chartered at Stoney Point Baptist Church 6554 Rockfish road in Hope Mills, NC. We serve both boys and girls age 6 to 11 (rising kindergarten through 5th grade) to learn about all aspects of Cub Scouts and prepare them to join Scouts. We focus on having fun while learning discipline, respect, and three duties of Scouts( Duty to God and Country, Duty to others, and Duty to self). 

Our pack meets on Tuesday nights from 6:30pm to 7:30pm September through May. During the summer months we have group outings and community service events.

Please feel free to contact us if your child is interested in joining, or just knowing what we are about!

In Service,

William Parry, Cubmaster

Purposes and Methods of Cub Scouting

The Cub Scouting program has 10 purposes related to the overall mission of the Boy Scouts of America – to build character, learn citizenship, and develop personal fitness:


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

Every Cub Scouting activity should help fulfill one of these purposes. When considering a new activity, ask which purpose or purposes it supports. Not everything in Cub Scouting has to be serious – far from it! Silly songs, energetic games, and yummy snacks all have their place in the program.

The Methods of Cub Scouting

To accomplish its purposes and achieve the overall goals of building character, learning citizenship, and developing personal fitness, Cub Scouting uses seven methods:

1. Living the Ideals
Cub Scouting’s values are embedded in the
Scout Oath, the Scout Law, the Cub Scout motto, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, and salute. These practices help establish and reinforce the program’s values in boys and the leaders who guide them.

2. Belonging to a Den
The den—a group of six to eight boys who are about the same age—is the place where Cub Scouting starts. In the den, Cub Scouts develop new skills and interests, they practice sportsmanship and good citizenship, and they learn to do their best, not just for themselves but for the den as well.

3. Using Advancement
Recognition is important to boys. The advancement plan provides fun for the boys, gives them a sense of personal achievement as they earn badges, and strengthens family understanding as adult family members and their den leader work with boys on advancement projects.

4. Involving Family and Home
Whether a Cub Scout lives with two parents or one, a foster family, or other relatives, his family is an important part of Cub Scouting. Parents and adult family members provide leadership and support for Cub Scouting and help ensure that boys have a good experience in the program.

5. Participating in Activities
Cub Scouts participate in a huge array of activities, including games, projects, skits, stunts, songs, outdoor activities, trips and service projects. Besides being fun, these activities offer opportunities for growth, achievement, and family involvement.

6. Serving Home and Neighborhood
Cub Scouting focuses on the home and neighborhood. It helps boys strengthen connections to their local communities, which in turn support the boys’ growth and development.

7. Wearing the Uniform
Cub Scout uniforms serve a dual purpose, demonstrating membership in the group (everyone is dressed alike) and individual achievement (boys wear the badges they’ve earned). Wearing the uniform to meetings and activities also encourages a neat appearance, a sense of belonging, and good behavior.


Pack Calendar


Skies the limit when it comes to adventure in Scouting! Your Scout will do various activities focusing on the three duties of a Scout. We work to give our Scouts a well rounded experience of fun, work, and learning activities. Through community based and Scout centered activities, you will see your Scout growing not only as a person, but as a leader.
