Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 226 in Apex, NC!

Pack 226 would like to welcome you and your family to Cub Scouts!  Pack 226 is chartered by Apex United Methodist Church which has graciously provides our Pack with meeting space at Apex UMC and actively supports our Cub Scout program. The Boy Scouts of America provides training to our leaders each year to help us conduct a great program. We have many experienced leaders, most that started out not knowing anything about Cub Scouts but have grown to love the program.  

Our Cub Scout Pack's main focus is on the outdoors.  We provide an exciting camping program where the entire Cub Scout Pack Family camps 3 or 4 times a year.  Our Family camping includes all members of the family that wish to join us.  We typically will camp at a state park or a Boy Scout Campground.  Additionally, we have had several different hiking adventures through the various state parks located within an hour of Apex, NC.  (Harris Lake, Jordan Lake, Falls Lake, Umstead Park, Raven Rock, etc.)

In addition to our outdoor program, we also have an exciting Pinewood Derby where the cub scouts and their responsible adults will build a small car out of a block of wood provided by the Pack.  In February, we have our Blue and Gold Banquet that celebrates our Webelos achieving the highest Cub Scout Award, that is the Arrow of Light.  We deliver back to the community with activities such as Scouting for Food where scouts provide service to those in need, Holiday Mail for Heroes, Gleaning Sweet Potatoes, Scout Sunday, the Apex Christmas Parade, and our annual Popcorn Fundraiser.  We strive to be a good neighbor to our Apex and Cary Community!

Our Fall Hike will be at Hemlock Bluffs in Cary on Nov 10 at 2pm. We will meet at the visitor center and head off at 2pm. We have been asked by the staff to car pool as much as possible. The trails are fairly easy and should be no problem for our Lions.
