Pack Organization

Boy Scouts of America (BSA):

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. The Cub Scout program is part of the overall Scouting program offered by the BSA.

Council & District:

Pack 250 is part of the Wilderness Road District of the Sequoyah Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Council and District have both paid and volunteer representatives whose job it is to help Cub Scout Packs and Scouts BSA Troops provide a quality program for the youth of East Tennessee and SW Virginia.

Chartered Organization:

Each Pack has a legal entity that supports the Pack and helped created it through agreement with the BSA. Pack 250’s Chartered Organization is Mayfair United Methodist Church. The church has a member who is our designated Chartered Organization Representative, and this person assists the Pack in our annual recharter process and approves new Pack leadership.

The Pack:

Most of the Scouts that are members of Pack 250 attend Kingsport City Schools. The Pack is run by a committee made up of a Chair, Cubmaster, Treasurer, and the Den Leaders. There are also important supporting Pack roles that include the Blue & Gold Banquet Organizers and individual Event Coordinators. Scouting is a family activity and there is no end to the opportunities large and small to help make the Pack go and provide a fun quality program for our children.


Scouts in the Pack are organized into Dens by grade level. Each grade level will have at least one Den and they will range in size from 6-12+ Scouts. Each Den will have a Den Leader (and possible one or two assistant, or co-leaders) who are registered and trained annually for their position according to BSA guidelines. Den leaders stay with their Den from Kindergarten up through 5th grade when the children age out and cross over to Boy Scouts.

During the Lion and Tiger years (K-1st grade) BSA rules require a parent or guardian to be present for all Den and Pack Gatherings and events. For Wolf through Arrow of Light (second to fifth grade) parents are encouraged to be present.
