Cub Scout Pack 959

Pack 959 is located in Hockessin, Delaware and offers a year-round adventure-based program designed to build character, develop citizenship, and encourage mental and physical fitness for boys and girls in grades K-5.

Grace Lutheran Church has been our Chartered Organization for over 25 years. As a well established Cub Scout pack, we have enjoyed a long history of strong leadership and family involvement that makes for a meaningful experience for kids. For over the last 6 years, Pack 959 is proud to have achieved annually the BSA’s Journey to Excellence award.

Build Character

Cub Scouts build character through a collection of core values by an individual that leads to moral commitment and action. A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent.

Learn Citizenship

Cub Scouts learn citizenship means contributing service and showing responsibility to local, state, and national communities. By helping fellow citizens in our local community, we remember the Law of the Pack and what it means when we say “gives goodwill.”

Mental and Physical Fitness

Cub Scouts learn to become personally committed to keeping their minds and bodies clean and fit. A Scout knows they need to be strong and healthy in mind and body to be able to contribute to our family, community, and nation.

Activities

Camping

Camping at the Cub Scout level introduces young people to the outdoors and helps them develop outdoor skills at an age-appropriate level that will be applied more thoroughly as a Scout. As Cub Scouts progress, the opportunities for outdoor adventures become more challenging.

Community Service

Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do their best to help other people every day, a group service project is a bigger way to help people. While you’re giving service, you’re learning to work together with others to do something that’s good for your community.

Pinewood Derby

Partnered with a parent or guardian, Cub Scouts work together, strengthening bonds and building confidence – and their own custom race cars! They begin with an official Pinewood Derby Race Car kit, then create a design, then carve it from the wood block provided in the kit, and detail it with paint, decals and other accessories, and perfect strategies to compete in their pack’s own Pinewood Derby. It’s s a wonderful learning experience centered on teamwork, ingenuity and sportsmanship – all for the thrill of the race and a lifetime of great memories to share with fellow racers young and old.

Outdoor Sports

Shooting sports have the ability to attract and retain youth in the movement. Millions of young people participate in one or more of the sports annually—archery, rifle shooting, shotgun activities, etc.—guided by adult volunteers who have the skills and knowledge to provide quality programs in a safe and effective way.

Pack Meetings

Our Pack meets once a month on the 3rd Friday of the month at Grace Lutheran Church. In addition, Dens meet once a month.

WOW Events

About once a month, our Pack gets together for an optional extra event. These events rotate but in the past we have slept on the Battleship New Jersey, a private screening on opening weekend of Star Wars, visited Cherry Crest Farms for the Pumpkin Smashing Event, Snow Tubing in the Poconos, and many, many other things.
