Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 505 in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina! Pack 505 is a chartered organization sponsored by Palmetto Presbyterian Church. We are a family-friendly Cub Scout pack with many opportunities to involve the whole family. You do not have to be a member or affiliate with the church to join. Pack 505 is located in the Etiwan District which servers the East Cooper area. We are 1 of the 7 districts in the Lowcountry which makes up the BSA Coastal Carolina Council and the largest in the state. Our local scout camp is Camp Ho Non Wah which is located on the banks of Bohicket River on Wadmalaw Island and has been serving as our Council camp since 1931.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
The Scout Law has 12 points. Each is a goal for every Scout. A Scout tries to live up to the Law every day. It is not always easy to do, but a Scout always tries.
A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
By welcoming both girls and boys into the program, even more youth will have access to the character development and values-based leadership that Scouting promises. Learn more by visiting our national family scouting site.
Cub Scouts is a year-round program that offers fun activities that promote character and leadership development. Our program is designed to be hands-on, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in our programs.
Scouting embraces the outdoors through camping, hiking and water sports. We also focus on helping our communities through service projects, STEM development and building confident kids through our wide range of activities. The Cub Scout program is designed to develop physical, mental and emotional fitness. Fitness includes the body (well-tuned and healthy), the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect).
HOW SCOUTING WORKS
The Scouting program is delivered through local civic, faith-based, and educational institutions called chartered organizations, which operate Scouting units to deliver the programs to their youth members, as well as the community at large.
Together, these organizations are run by almost one million adult volunteers dedicated to helping youth learn and grow.
