Cub Scout Pack 119
Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through the Cub Scout program. Some of the first activities for Scouts were designed to build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service. These elements were part of the original Cub Scout program and continue to be part of Cub Scouting today. Pack 119 teaches these values through games, crafts, teamwork exercises, camping trips and other activities to create a fun and educational experience for all of our Scouts. For more information about Cub Scouts and the Scouting program in general, please visit the BSA website at www.scouting.org.
Cub Scouts is open to all boys from 1st grade through 5th grade. Pack 119 meets on Tuesday nights at SMPC from 7 – 8pm. Enrollment in Pack 119 is open typically from August to mid-September each year. If you have a son that is interested in joining Scouting, please visit the Pack 119 webpage at www.NCPack119.org, or contact the Pack 119 Committee Chair, Kelly Nowokunski, at email@example.com.
Boy Scout Troop 119
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society. For more information about Boy Scouts and the Scouting program in general, please visit the BSA website at www.scouting.org.
South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church has been sponsoring Boy Scout Troop 119 since it was chartered in 1995. The troop is for any boy between the ages of 11 (6th grade) and 18. The Troop meets on Monday nights at SMPC from 6:30 – 8pm. The Scoutmaster is Tim Morgan firstname.lastname@example.org and the Assistant Scoutmaster assigned to assist new Scouts is Richard Field email@example.com. If you have specific questions about the Troop or wish to enroll your son, please contact one of these leaders directly.
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
The Girl Scout Mission: Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church is the proud sponsor of 11 different Girl Scout Troops, serving girls from Kindergarten age (Daisy Scouts) through high school (Senior Scouts). Troops meet on different nights at SMPC. For more information about Girl Scouts and the Scouting program in general, please visit the Girl Scouts of the USA website at www.girlscouts.org.
