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!

Join us for adventure-fueled fitness at the last Pack 226 event of 2018! The scout-specific climbing program teaches courage, confidence, and character. Climbing requires a combination of tenacity and practice in pursuit of mastery. Scouts will learn the ropes with an introduction to safe climbing, including how to use harnesses and the proper way to tie a figure-8-follow-through knot. Scouts will get the chance to climb several different courses, of varying difficulty, using the auto-belayer.
