Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 178!
Pack 178 was established in 1987 to serve the Great Neck, New York community.
We are a non-denominational organization sponsored by All Saints Church in Great Neck. Pack 178 is in the Shelter Rock District of the Theodore Roosevelt Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
We are a family pack with about 60+ kids across the 4 elementary schools in Great Neck. That means that both boys and girls can join Cub Scouts between the ages of five and ten years old, usually from Kindergarten to fifth grade.
When we meet:
We usually have our pack meetings once a month on the 3rd Thursday evenings at All Saints Church, 855 Middle Neck Road.
Each Den meets separately once about once or twice a month. The Den meetings are where the kids do their advancement work. This includes field trips, learning new skills and topics, and just having fun.
The pack also organizes events such as camping trips, community service events, outdoor trips and sporting outings several times a year.
Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped younger boys through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys who are in the first grade through fifth grade. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three membership divisions (the others are Boy Scouting and Venturing).
The Story of Two Wolves
Long ago, an old Native American grandfather told his grandson, “There are two wolves fighting inside all of us constantly–the wolf of fear and hate, and the wolf of love and peace.” The grandson looked up at his grandfather and asked, “Which one will win?” The grandfather replied, “The one we feed.”
