Pack Chartered Organization


A chartered organizations can be a place of worship, school, or other community group that has the same interests as the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  The chartered organization relationship is the cornerstone of the Scouting program.


Chartered organizations are structured differently so the term Institution Head is used to describe the person who leads the chartered organization.  In a place of worship it may be a pastor or it may be the president of a community group.  The institution head enters into an annual agreement to provide Scouting in the community and to the youth they seek to serve.  In most cases the institution head appoints someone to oversee the Scouting program(s) they charter this position is a Chartered Organization Representative. 


Some of the best things about Cub Scouting are the activities you get to do: camping, hiking, racing model cars, going on field trips, or doing projects that help your hometown and the people who live there. Cub Scouting means “doing.”


When you see someone in a uniform, you know that person belongs to a specific group. A police officer wears a uniform, and so does a doctor or a firefighter. As a Cub Scout, you will wear a uniform too.



“Scouting taught me to seek out the best version of myself, to work hard for the things I want to accomplish, because anything worth doing is worth working hard for.”
