Pack 16 is part of Gamehaven Council, Sugar Loaf district. We are located in Lewiston, MN.
We are chartered by the Lions Club of Lewiston.

About Us


We are a community driven Pack, intent on bring the best possible Scouting program. 
Pack 16 was first chartered on 1/1/1948 and has been continuously chartered each year for the last 68 years. We are currently chartered with the Lewiston Lion's Club.

We have programs for boys in grades K through 5, and new members may join at any time.  The best way to find out about us is to come to one of our meetings and join in the fun.  To find out about our next meeting, feel free to contact us through the Scoutlander website or email lewistoncubscoutspack16@gmail.com!  We sometimes have special open houses in the Fall and/or Spring, but new members are welcome all year long.

Most of our families are Lewiston, Altura, Stockton and surrounding communities.

Many of our scouts attend Lewiston-Altura Elementary in Lewiston, but we are open to all boys in Kindergarten through Fifth grade. New members are always welcome! We generally meet three times a month. Two of these meetings is the den meeting, which is made up of boys of one grade level. The other meeting is the pack meeting, at which all of the dens meet together. In addition, we often have additional activities such as Polar Cub Day Camp, Pinewood Derby, Space Derby, and others. We serve all boys and their families in our community. 

Coming Up: 

Every Month at Various Dates and Times: Den Meetings-where each grade level meets just as one grade. Please email lewistoncubscoutspack16@gmail.com for exact dates and times of your boy's grade.

RSVP for any and all events is appreciated by email: lewistoncubscoutspack16@gmail.com

What Is Cub Scouts?



Cub Scouts is an organization for boys in Kindergarten through fifth grade (or ages 5-10). Members join a Cub Scout pack and are assigned to a Den, usually a group of six to eight boys.  First grade boys (Tiger Cubs) meet once a month, while Wolf (second grade), Bear (third grade), and Webelos Scouts (fourth and fifth graders) meet twice a month.

Pack
The pack refers to all boys in Kindergarten through fifth grade which belong to our cub scout group.  The pack meets once per month during the school year (September through May) usually around the third Monday of the month, although some activities are best suited for Saturdays.

 
Lion Cubs 
is
 a new Cub Scout program for boys age 5 or in Kindergarten and their adult partners. The program is focused on parent involvement and delivery with support from the Cub Scout pack using literature specifically designed for the younger age group.  Each month’s curriculum includes Family/Den Activities, At-Home Activities and Grand Adventures. 

 
Tiger Cubs 
are first graders (or age 7) and an adult family member. Tiger Cubs members take turns planning and hosting den gatherings, selecting projects from a broad range of suggested activities.    You and your son will both learn as you go!

 
Bobcat, the first rank, is for all boys who join Cub Scouting.  To earn the Bobcat badge, a Cub Scout must learn the Cub Scout motto, promise, handshake, salute, and sign. This is typically a very short held rank before moving on to Wolves.

 
Wolves is the program for boys who have completed first grade (or are age 8).  To earn the Wolf badge, a boy must pass twelve achievements involving simple physical and mental skills.  Most, if not all will be presented in Den meetings and pack meetings.

 
Bears program is for boys who have completed second grade (or are age 9). There are twenty-four Bear achievements in four different categories.  The Cub Scout must complete twelve of these to earn the Bear badge.  These requirements are somewhat more difficult and challenging than those for Wolf rank. They are also addressed in den and pack meetings.

 

Webelos is the first step in a Scout's transition from a Cub Scout Pack to a Boy Scout Troop.  It is for boys who have completed grade three (or are age 10).  As he completes the requirements found in the Webelos Scout Book, he will work on activity badges and become familiar with the Boy Scout requirements - all leading to the Arrow of Light Award.
