About Us


Cub Scout Pack 1169 is chartered by United Christian Parish and is home to Cubs from Armstrong, Aldrin, Forest Edge, and Lake Anne Elementary Schools.  The kids in these schools are already playing together, are on sports teams together, and go to summer camps together.  In fact any child in/near Reston, VA is invited to join our Pack, regardless of their school.  We’re run by parent volunteers and welcome new participation, ideas, and adventures!


Scouting operates through volunteer leadership and we have many ways to get involved. We recognize not everyone can commit to serving in a regular leadership role, we do ask that you volunteer in some fashion. Some of our needs are for annual activities such as campout planning, Pinewood Derby, cookouts, etc. Other activities occur in small bursts all year. Ask the Cubmaster how you can help!


Each Cub is working during the year toward earning one of the six ranks by completing 6 required adventures and at least two elective adventures. Most requirements are completed during Den or Pack meetings; some requirements may have an at-home component. Your Den Leader will help guide you through this process.  Although a Cub may occasionally miss an activity due to illness, team practice, or another obligation, they should try to attend all activities. If a Cub does miss something, he and his parents are obligated to make up the missed requirements, coordinating with the Den Leader, so that they can earn his next rank.


The Pack typically meets once a month with rank specific adventure outings as required. Pack Meetings are usually held on one Saturday each month.  Den Meetings—each Den will determine what day/time works best for the group and meet 1-2 times/month.


Annual Registration - Paid annually and includes BSA Fees, insurance, Scouts’ Life subscription, Pinewood Derby kit, badges/awards, camping adventures and more. 

Fundraising – We strongly encourage all scouts to participate in the popcorn sales as this is our only fundraiser. 



The Pack is run by the Pack Committee under the leadership of the Committee Chair (Nicole Braverman). The program is executed by the Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, and the Den Leaders. The Dens are based on grade:



Our Story

Pack 1169 is chartered by United Christian Parish within the Powhatan District of the National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.  The Pack serves the North Reston area including Armstrong Elementary School, Lake Anne Elementary School, Aldrin Elementary School, and Forest Edge Elementary School.

The Pack is named after Apollo 11, the spaceflight that landed on the moon in 1969.  Neil Armstrong (the namesake of Armstrong Elementary School, Pack 1169's original charter organization) became the first human to step on the moon.  

The pack typically meets one Saturday each month.  Dens typically have regular meetings/outings once or twice per month.

Each year, the pack hosts a Fall Campout, Pinewood Derby, Blue Gold Banquet, and Spring Campout.  The pack also participates in service projects like Scouting for Food. Individual dens participate in numerous other civic, cultural, and outdoor activities.
