Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 1076!

Our Pack is chartered by the Franconia Moose Family Center, # 1076, located in Alexandria, Virginia.  We primarily serve children attending Lane & Island Creek Elementary Schools as well as home school children.

If you have a boy or girl in grades K-5 that would like to join Cub Scouting and Pack 1076, please send an email to membership@alexandria1076.mypack.us

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 

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 Scouts and the leaders who guide them. 

2. Belonging to a Den 
The den—a group of six to eight children 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 everyone. The advancement plan provides fun for the Scouts, 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 them on advancement projects. 

4. Involving Family and Home 
Whether a Cub Scout lives with two parents or one, a foster family, or other relatives, their family is an important part of Cub Scouting. Parents and adult family members provide leadership and support for Cub Scouting and help ensure that Scouts 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 Scouts 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 (Scouts 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 Meeting on September 23 at the Moose Lodge Pavilion

Posted on Sep 12 2021 - 4:58pm

We will be holding a Pack Meeting on September 23, 2021 at 6:30pm at the Moose Lodge Pavilion. The Troop 1076 Boy Scouts have graciously agreed to share with us some camping pointers and tips given that it has been a couple of years since the Pack last had a campout. And for our newer Scouts, it will be their first campout as a Scout. 

We look forward to seeing everyone in a couple of weeks.

A Note from Cubmaster Brian on the upcoming Pack Advancement Meeting on 20 May at 6:30PM at the Moose Lodge Pavilion

Posted on May 14 2021 - 12:57pm

Hello Pack Families,

Thursday, May 20, at 6:30pm, we will be holding an in-person Pack Meeting at the pavilion at the Moose Lodge (7701 Beulah Street, Alexandria VA 22315).  This Pack Meeting will serve as our advancement ceremony for scouts moving to the next rank!  We will be doing socially distanced face painting to signify the advancements.  But before that, we plan to use the fields behind the pavilion to play capture the flag as we have done during past camping trips.  Masks will still be required despite the recent CDC guidance.
