Pack 22 is committed to following the Scout Oath and Law in all of our activities. This provides the character education and leadership education that has allowed the Scouting movement to thrive for nearly 11 decades. We have an excellent facility for our meetings with a dedicated Scouting area, including a craft facility with tools for construction of Pinewood Derby cars. We have a charter partner, Trinity United Methodist Church, which is committed to serving children in a safe, caring environment.
“We’ve really enjoyed the positive and inclusive environment our family experiences with Scouting and Pack 22. Our son looks forward to learning new skills, getting out into nature, and jumping into helping our community with service projects. He has really thrived in his role within the Pack and made some great friends.” Genevieve Strickland
Pack 22 and its leadership team are committed to:
- providing an environment supportive of full family involvement in Cub Scouting, for boys and girls
- providing an environment welcoming to Scouts of all backgrounds, including those with special needs
- diversity of membership
- serving our local community
Our leadership team includes an experienced special educator and we have access to numerous other resources, through Trinity’s church membership, to ensure that all Scouts have a welcoming, positive experience in Cub Scouting.

Cub Scouts enjoy great adventures and fun activities with kids their own age in a family-friendly environment. Scouting leads to new friends, strong values, and increased self-esteem. Come to a meeting and see what it is all about!
What Do We Do?
Weekly meetings and we aim for at least one outing per month during the school year.
Service Projects where we help people in need, like Scouting for Food, where we collect food for local food banks, or Rise Against Hunger, where we package meals to be sent to less-fortunate areas of the world. We also work to serve our community and our environment, like on recent projects where we worked to remove invasive species of plants at a local historic landmark, removed litter from local trails, and improved an access ramp for a neighbor.
Outdoor Adventures We have a minimum of two camping outings a year — one in fall and one in spring — where the whole family is invited. Frequently, these trips provide opportunities for other fun activities, like fishing, BB gun shooting, and archery. We go on hikes and other adventures in our area.
Local Learning We visit local places of interest to learn about careers and services, such as the Fire Department, the Emergency Communications Center, the Spartanburg Downtown Airport, and the Spartanburg County Library.
Fun Activities We celebrate the BSA’s birthday during Scout Sunday, where we participate in the service of our charter partner, Trinity United Methodist Church, and have a fun meal for all of our members and families. We have a Blue and Gold Event, which is a party for Scouting, complete with cake and ice cream. The Pinewood Derby, where Cubs race wooden cars they built themselves, is a very popular event. During summers, we plan fun activities to get together, which this year included a Raingutter Regatta and a service event for Rise Against Hunger, in which Pack 22’s Scouts and Leaders helped the members and friends of Trinity United Methodist Church package over 12,000 meals to be provided to families experiencing hunger abroad.
Our leaders are trained in their roles in Scouting. 100% of our leaders who directly serve youth have completed their position-specific training through the BSA.
We have four leaders who were themselves Cub Scouts, and we have four Arrow of Light Recipients and four Eagle Scouts. Our Committee Chair is Past President of the Palmetto Council, and currently serves the Palmetto Council’s BSA National Counsel Representative, and another leader serves on the Executive Committee of the Palmetto Council, as legal counsel.
Our leaders have been recognized for their service at the District and Council levels, receiving the Silver Beaver Award (for outstanding service to Scouting at the Council level) and the District Award of Merit (for outstanding service at the District level).
