Cub Scout Pack 156 was chartered in January 1956 by Capshaw School in Cookeville, Tennessee.  We have been serving families in the city of Cookeville and the Upper Cumberland Region for over 50 years. 

Pack 156 is a member of the Upper Cumberland District, of the Middle Tennessee Council, and of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

We meet once a month for pack meetings at the Capshaw cafeteria. In addition, each den meets at least twice a month for meetings and trips.


Pack 156 is a very family-oriented pack.  We emphasize building confidence, developing character, and great lifetime memories in our scouts. We participate in a lot of activities throughout the year -- check our Calendar page to see what we're up to!

Cub Scouting encourages each scout to "Do Your Best." 

This web site has several basic goals--


  • To be a information resource for members of Pack 156.

  • To be a resource for those in the Cookeville area to learn more about Scouting and the many activities we are involved in.

  • To be a resource to other Scouting organizations in the Upper Cumberland District.
