For over 70 years, Davidson's Pack 58
has fostered Scouting Values, Spirit & Fun throughout North Mecklenburg. Come see for yourself!
COVID-19 Update, September 2020
After a lengthy review process with our families, leadership & Council, we are ready to Roll for this Fall! Here are the major changes to our program:
100% outdoors! We are embracing our roots and getting back to basics!
Meetings will happen at the Den-level in smaller groups with masks & distancing
Pack Meetings will need to be canceled... we are just too big. Instead we will have weekend Pack-level events that families or dens can rotate through in small groups
Popcorn sales are ON! This is the only area we will be "plugged in". Sales will be on-line and Trails End has a great App to help track sales.
CAMPING! The Pack will work to support smaller family camp-outs in October... more to come!
ISOLATING FAMILIES: if you cannot come-out in person, we understand! Ashley & Rob are working on developing an "at-home" program to support families and Cubs... we will be your resource to help you keep Scouting
Pack 58 was first chartered in 1947 and is part of Mecklenburg County Council. Our chartering org is the Davidson Lion's Club. We also enjoy strong support from the local faith community including Davidson United Methodist Church, Davidson College Presbyterian Church, St. Albans Episcopal and Temple Kol Tikvah.
Adventure Awaits with P58!
In Fall of 2020, Pack 58 will re-focus on Scouting's roots... THE GREAT OUTDOORS! We will be sponsoring Camp-outs, hikes & Scouting Skills Days to get families outside in a way that is safe and in-line with the new NC guidelines. Our goal is to get Cubs unplugged and exploring!
In 2020-21, we will re-engage our popular Hiking program. Cubs that attend 3 Pack hikes and complete 10 miles total of hiking will earn official Pack 58 Hiking Patches! NEXT HIKE IS IN OCTOBER 2020!
Our Cub year has a grand finale at Raven Knob Scout Camp in Mt. Airy, NC. Our goal is to make it back to Raven Knob for Spring 2021. We will have camping, hiking, scouting skills and fellowship! Also, Pack 58 takes over the dinning hall for good eats all weekend! We cap things off with a special Pack Campfire, songs & a Cub Cross-over ceremony!
All elementary school children are welcome to join... that includes girls! Boys & Girls will be organized in separate "Dens" by gender & grade level. The "Pack" will meet as a whole the last Monday of the month. Since Pack 58 has always encouraged families & sisters to join in the fun, we expect this to be a great addition to our program!
Community Service is a priority for Pack 58. While selling Popcorn is the main source of funding for our program, the Pack sets aside a portion of net proceeds to fund Service Projects.
"Trees Davidson" has been a big partner of ours... the "Scouting for Food" Drive in February is also key!
Start your ENGINES!!
February 8, 2020... The Pinewood Derby! A great turn out and a ton of fun! Here is the Pack "GoPro" attached to a car from 2019! Our race was held at the DCPC Congregation House... 105 Cubs entered with 120 heats! Congrats to Will, Wesley & Henry on their top place finishes!!
Our race at the Council Pinewood Derby (at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte) was canceled. We are set for another return in 2021...
