Adventure is waiting! Are you ready?
We're Pack 283 - Chapel Hill, and we're glad to meet you!
Pack 283 is an active group that strives to provide young boys an environment where they can learn the values and principles of Scouting while having fun and making friends.
New to Scouting
If you're new to Scouting, the Cub Scouts is a home and neighborhood-centered program designed for boys in 1st through 5th grade. Cub Scouting teaches boys to do their best and to be helpful to others. This site has several links to help you get acquainted with Scouting and we encourage you to learn all you can about this amazing program. Better still, come join us for an event and see for yourself what a fantastic experience Scouting can be.
Pack 283 is located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and is sponsored by Christ United Methodist Church. Scouts in Pack 283 attend various local elementary schools including Scroggs, FPG, Northside, North Chatham, Perry Harrison, and Woods Charter.
Meeting Schedule & Activities
The Pack meetsonce a month at 6:45 pm during the school year - check our calendar of events for specific dates. These meetings are held in the fellowship hall of the church, located at 800 Market Street, in the Southern Village neighborhood. Each Den meets twice a month on Sundays to work towards their achievements and explore their community. Visits to the police or fire departments, geocaching and mapping the neighborhood are just a few examples.
Camping and the Pinewood Derby
Each year we make two big camping trips - one in the Fall and then again in the Spring. This year we're going to Hanging Rock National Park in October for our first getaway. And each February Scouts (and their parents) test their car-making skills at the Pinewood Derby - the greatest race on Earth. Car kits are provided as a part of each Scout's annual dues.
We hope you'll join our Pack!
Since 1910, parents have recognized Scouting as a program that can enhance the core values and principles you want to instill in your child. We invite you, your family and friends to join our Pack and experience all that the wonderful world of Scouting has to offer.
