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.

2020 Pack 1076 Popcorn Sales Update

Posted on Sep 7 2020 - 10:14pm
Hi Pack 1076!
 
Welcome back!  Although this year will be a different kind of scouting adventure, we hope it will still be fun!
 
This year, the pack has decided to raise funds via online sales only, which Trails End calls "direct sales". The benefits of this are:
  1. Social distancing is kept
  2. Scouts do not have to handle or deliver any popcorn
  3. Scouts do not have to collect payments
Our sales goal is not as high as last year, but we will still need funds to pay for advancements (i.e., slides, patches, kits, etc.) and hopefully adventures if or when safe. 
 
Trails End has revamped its rewards system by appointing point values for different methods of selling. Online sales earns the most points to the dollar (2 points to $1 sold), allowing your scout to earn a higher value Amazon gift card quicker! The levels between points earned have also decreased, making it easier to reach the next gift card value.  
 
See attachment on reward levels and the rewards flyer attachment.

A Few Scouting Updates Since COVID-19

Posted on May 17 2020 - 6:16pm

Hello Scout Families,

I hope this email finds you well.  

A lot of Virginia is reopening.  Northern Virginia is not.  As such, in-person scout meetings, camping trips, and the like unfortunately remain on hold for us, at least for now.  We will not be holding a Pack advancement ceremony in late May, nor will we be holding the Raingutter Regatta recruitment event in early June.  The lack of our recruitment event, as well as our inability to reach students at our local schools, certainly presents a challenge in the recruitment department.  Still, we are always looking for new Scouts.  Please let your friends and neighbors know that we are always welcoming new Scouts and would love to have them join us in Pack 1076.

Please RSVP for the Pack 1076 Fall 2019 Campout!

Posted on Sep 18 2019 - 10:48am
Please RSVP for the Spring Campout on the Pack Website.  This information is needed so the Pack can assign the proper number of campsites and the Den leaders can plan for food. 
 
Each Den is responsible for their own food and water.  Please contact your den leader for details and to find out how you can help.  
 
We need a volunteer (or two) with a pick-up truck that can pick up and deliver firewood for the campout.  Please email me if you can help out with this important role: jopo68@hotmail.com
