Be Prepared. . . for life!
Our Mission: To prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime, by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
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.
We meet once a month for pack meetings at the Capshaw cafeteria. Dens meet on weeks when we do not have a Pack meeting.
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!
Whether you are a member of our pack, a scout, or scouter from around Middle Tennessee, we welcome you to browse our pages and learn more about scouting.
