About Us

Pack 1169 is chartered by the Neil Armstrong Elementary School Parent Teacher Association with the Powhatan District of the National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The pack consists of ~50 cub scouts divided into 10 dens (2 dens per year). The scouts represent a diverse mix of students from Armstrong Elementary School and several other local public and private schools.

The Pack is named after Apollo 11, the spaceflight that landed on the moon in 1969. Neil Armstrong (the namesake of Armstrong Elementary School) became the first human to step on the moon.

The pack meets monthly (typically the 3rd or 4th Friday evening) at Armstrong Elementary School or at UCP. Dens typically have regular meetings/outings once or twice per month.

Each year, the pack hosts a Pinewood Derby, a Bake-Off, Blue Gold Banquet, Family Camping Trip, and a Raingutter Regatta. The pack also participates in numerous service projects including Scouting for Food, Toys for Tots, Potomac Watershed Stream Cleanup, and Adopt-A-Highway. Individual dens participate in numerous other civic, cultural, and outdoor activities.

In 2013 Cub Scout Pack 340 from United Christian Parish merged into Pack 1169.
