Pack 446 History
Cub Scout Pack 446 was formed in the Summer of 2004 as a Boy Scout of America unit in the Northern Star District within the Bay Area Council. Pack 446 is currently charted by Manvel Volunteer Fire Department. Our pack is divided by grade level, 1st through 5th, into dens which meet regularly at various locations. Full Pack 446 meetings are monthly at Silvercrest Elementary.
Pack 446 is run by the Pack Committee made up of dedicated parent volunteers. The Pack Committee in conjunction with the Cubmaster oversees the pack activities and administration.We are a very active, family-oriented pack camping four to six times a year around Houston area (Brazos Bend, Galveston State Park to name a few). We sponsor an annual Pinewood Derby, Rocket Launch, Blue and Gold Banquet, Pack picnic and Arrow of Light ceremony. We encourage the whole family to participate and attend, and even create special events for siblings. We participate in District events such as Twilight camp, Cub-O-Ree, and Webelos Resident Camp, We visit historical sites such as the USS Lexington, Battleship Texas and even stay overnight onboard the vessels. We always are looking to visit new places and do fun things even over the summer.
Pack 446 is a strong supporter of Keep Pearland Beautiful having adopted Southwyck Parkway and areas around Silvercrest Elementary. We also give back to the community with an annual Christmas Service Project and often look for volunteer opportunities when we camp out at various parks.
Since its origin, the Scouting program has been an educational experience concerned with values. In 1910, 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. Character development should extend into every aspect of a boy’s life. Character development should also extend into every aspect of Cub Scouting. Cub Scout leaders should strive to use Cub Scouting’s 12 core values throughout all elements of the program—service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings
