About Us

Founded in the Fall of 1999, Pack 788 is a Cub Scout organization in the Far West End of Henrico County, Virginia. This Pack was formed as a smaller alternative to the Packs supporting Shady Grove & Twin Hickory Elementary Schools, also allowing for an alternate day of the week for meetings.

The Pack is sponsored by Christ Church Episcopal, 5000 Pouncey Tract Road, in Glen Allen. The Church provides us with support and meeting space, and we, in return, work with the Church, and other organizations, on community service projects - an integral part of Scouting.

In Fall 2003, Pack 788 began recruiting at the new Rivers Edge Elementary School in Glen Allen.

Pack 788 meets on approximately the 3rd Monday of every month, from September through May, at Christ Church.

Den meetings are also usually held on various Monday nights in the Christ Church educational building.

During the summer months, the Pack continues with special summer-time activities once a month, as well as attending both Cub Scout Day Camp and Cub Scout Adventure Camp, sponsored respectively by the Cardinal District and the Heart of Virginia Council.

Our success in having a healthy Pack 788 comes from the parent volunteers. Unlike some sports activities, Cub Scouting is an organization where parents need to actively participate with their boys. It is essential, therefore that the parents of every boy be willing to invest some time to help their sons grow with Scouting.
