About Us

Pack 316 is part of the Guilford District in the Old North State Council.  We meet at Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church on Tuesdays from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM. The Pack serves approximately 45 to 60 boys weekly with a full range of age appropriate activities through its five ranks.  The six ranks in Cub Scouting are Lion, Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos I and Webelos II. Pack 316 has opted to embrace female membership as part of BSA's family scouting initiative.

Boys and girls are grouped together in dens by age or grade.  All Cub Scouts must earn their Bobcat award regardless of when they begin.  This creates a common link between all the cub scouts in a Pack.

In both the Lion and Tiger Den programs Cub Scouts and their adult partners are introduced to Scouting through games, activities and lessons specifically designed for Kindergarteners and First graders. The Second graders or 7 year olds, strive for the rank of Wolf as they add more to their knowledge of family, home, school and community. As a Bear, the requirements become a little more challenging for the Third graders.  The model for Scouting is to build upon the things the cub scout has learned each year developing a broad interest in many things.  From sports to science, from faith to civic duty each rank challenges the cub scout to be a good citizen.

The highest level of Cub Scouting is reaching the Webelos rank.  Fourth and Fifth graders work toward earning the Arrow of Light.  The Arrow of Light, the highest award for a Cub Scout, is the pinnacle of his years in the den and Pack.  More involved activities in greater depth prepare the Cub Scout to become a Boy Scout.  Upon completion of the Webelos rank and earning the Arrow of Light your son or daughter can bridge over into Troop 316 fully prepared to continue on his journey to earn the highest rank in Scouting---the Eagle award.

Pack 316 believes every child deserves the opportunity to be a Cub Scout and to have a well trained leader.  Our leadership staff works closely with the Boy Scouts of America and the Old North State Council to maintain their knowledge and skills.  Annually the Pack earns training awards and assists in District and Council activities.  We encourage community pride through service projects and are open to visitation for all our activities.  We invite your questions and ask that you consider us when looking for a place to help your child become a good citizen of the Greensboro community.  We also encourage your participation in our Pack by becoming part of our leadership team.
