Pack 440 was first chartered in 1960 and is Lexington's oldest Cub Scout Pack. We are part of the Blue Elk District in the Heart of America Council and are sponsored by the Lexington United Methodist Church.
We work closely with Troop 318 to ensure each Cub Scout is ready for the transition into Scouts, BSA. Pack 440 holds a Crossover Ceremony in which the packs Arrow of Light recipients will crossover into Troop 318. Representatives from Troop 318 will attend the Crossover (Bridging) Ceremony and welcome the Arrow of Light recipients into the Troop.
Our goal is to foster the BSA vision of building our youth into responsible and productive members of the community and to instill in them lifetime values and developing ethical character traits as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. We encourage our Scouts to be productive members of the community while keeping the fun in scouting.
Cub Scouts is an amazing program for boys and girls in Kindergarten through the 5th grade. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.
Meeting times and dates are scheduled by each individual Den Leader based on what schedule works best for their group. Pack Meetings are held once per month, usually on the 3rd Sunday. Regular attendance is expected for all youth who join our Pack. Parents are expected to arrange transportation for their scouts to and from meetings. A calendar listing of monthly activities and local scout activities is distributed regularly and updated as changes occur. It is important that this calendar be retained as attendance at scout functions ensures a successful scouting experience.
