Welcome to Pack 159's Website

Pack 159 serves Cub Scouts from 1st to 5th grade generally from both Jollyville and Pond Springs Elementary Schools and the surrounding neighborhoods in Austin, Texas.

If you are interested in joining, Pack 159 typically on-boards new Cub Scouts in the Fall with our Join Scouting Night (JSN) events.  For the 2017-18 school year, they are currently scheduled for 9/5 at Jollyville and 9/7 at Pond Springs.  Expect to see neighborhood signage and school PR around this as those dates approach. 

If you have login issues, send an email to the Webmaster.

Welcome Back, Pack 159! October is Happenin'!

Posted on Sep 18 2017 - 9:55pm

Hey there Pack 159!

Hope your Summer was a great one.  We had quite a few activities happen throughout the summer months for our Scouts thanks to some wonderful volunteers like Sara Kinnison and Amy Weir.  Scouts were able to earn achievements during the Summer months thanks to these volunteers and some Den Leaders.

Our first Pack meeting will be held on Wed, 9/20.  We will meet at the same bat time (7:00 - 8:00) and the same bat channel (Pond Springs Elementary cafeteria).  The Arrow of Light Den 2 will be hosting our flag ceremony and snack raffle.  Please do bring your pocket change for snack raffle if you wish to participate (new parents, this is $1-2 in coins or bills).  Field uniform (aka Class A) is strongly encouraged attire for Pack meetings.  If you have not yet joined by submitting an application or dues, do attend.  You can sign up on-site!  Returning Scout dues are $75; New Scout dues are $90.

The year is kicking off pretty quickly with our Pack Family Campout on Oct 7-8.  Please do sign up sooner than later to help organizers with planning for head count.  Webelos Scouts, talk to your Den Leaders about options to attend Webelos Woods 2017, themed "Medieval Times: Live With Honor".

Other events from the Capital Area Council and the Chisholm Trail District include Scout Rocket Day on 10/8 and Cub Adventure Day's Medieval Adventure on 10/28.  Scouts attend at-will or organize at their Den levels to attend these area events.

On top of all that, Popcorn is about to be poppin'!  The Pack encourages Scouts to participate in fundraising through Trails End Popcorn salesmanship to help fund the Pack.  Trails End has stepped up their online game and taking online orders from remote friends and family is even easier this year.  Our new Popcorn Kernel, Joe Cohen, will be a great volunteer to help the Pack succeed with fundraising efforts.  Welcome, Joe!  Other new leaders include Sam Newman taking over for the Awards Chair position.  Our Pack is driven 100% by volunteers whom are motivated to do whatever part they can to help our Scouts have fun and learn while doing. 

Also if you have not yet subscribed to the Cub Scout Pack 159 Facebook Page, please consider doing so.  Lots of comms and dialogues between Pack parents and Scouters.

Looking forward to an amazing year with our Scouts!
