Cub Scouts & Girl Scouts

Cub Scouts

Informational meeting for boys K-3rd will be held on 9/26/18 at 5:30pm in the library.  

The Cub Scouts meet on Wednesday evenings to work on projects that build character, friendships, and self-esteem. Our charter organization is the Mathews PTA, a 501c3 non-profit.

Pack 1916 began just last year with a small but committed band of Wolves, Tigers, and Lions (that’s 2nd, 1st, and Kindergarteners for the uninitiated).

The kindergarteners begin the Lion program in the spring semester. But the rest of the pack meets every week, or at least twice a month, during the school year either at the Mathews Library, Gym, or on the blacktop, or at our community garden on Waterston Street where the pack maintains a plot. We also take field trips, have overnights, and participate in Capital Area Council Cub Scout activities like adventure days.

We are parent-run and family-funded with the help of one or two fundraising activities throughout the year. Costs for participation are low, with the initial outlay for the pack T-shirt and den workbook being under $50, and uniforms costing about $100 if purchased new. Scout Law promotes thriftiness and responsibility so we naturally encourage hand-me-downs. Monthly supply and activity fees are $20 per scout. Your most valuable contribution however will be your time and participation through leadership roles. This is not a drop-off activity.

When your scout registers, you will also register as an adult volunteer, taking a brief but essential YPT: Youth Protection Training course and we will identify a role that suits your skills and availability.

Pack 1916 is a 100% inclusive and welcoming club for boys. We encourage siblings to participate and want any aspiring scout to join us regardless of economic need. Please feel free to contact me with any questions:

Girl Scouts

Girl Scout troop #42110 is a member of the Girl Scouts of Central Texas. We are currently a Brownie troop for grades 2nd and 3rd meeting once a month after school. Our troop works in the scouting tradition of helping girls build courage, confidence, and character, and helping them to understand their role in becoming leaders who make the world a better place.

Unfortunately at this time we are at maximum capacity and unable to accept new members.
