Welcome back!

Welcome back, and welcome new members!

It’s time to get back to another great year of Cub Scouting with Pack 205!  Thanks for returning to us, and we especially welcome parents and boys interested in joining us!

Pack 205 is a chartered Cub Scout Pack within York District of the Palmetto Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Sponsored by Westminster Presbyterian Church in Rock Hill. We welcome boys from across Rock Hill, but especially in the areas surrounding downtown Rock Hill.

We will officially start back with a Pack meeting on Thursday, August 27th at 6:30 PM. This meeting will be for all returning Cubs and parents, as well as folks interesting in registering with Pack 205.  We will be present at Scouting Schools Night at Sunset Park and Westminster Catawba Christian School on Thursday, September 3rd, so check your school for more information about that meeting.  Our New Scout Orientation night for new boys will be Thursday, September 10th where we will get you paired up with a Den, based on your boy’s age. See more about our upcoming calendar here.

Our Pack and Dens usually meet on Thursday nights.  The meetings always revolve around a skill or activity, and parents are an integral part of their boy’s involvement. Parents are encouraged to volunteer to help based on your strengths…know knots? Good with cooking? Love to do crafts? Good at organizing?  We need your help, so jump right in!

Please browse our site for more information about Pack 205, contact Cubmaster Rich Lane or our other leaders with questions, and we look forward to your family becoming part of our Scouting family!
