Cub Scout Pack 6 has operated continuously since 1947, providing the youth of Van Alstyne with opportunities for outdoor activities, projects, sports, academics and more in a fun and exciting program that prepares youth to make ethical and moral choices.
Cub Scouts is great for all kids who are entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. In 5th grade, they transition to a Scouts BSA Troop (here in VA, that’s usually Troop 44 or Girl Troop 44).
Welcome to Troop 44
Character Building Since 1913
Troop 44 has been in existence for 110 years, serving the community of Van Alstyne. It is the 3rd oldest troop in the state of Texas and 5th oldest troop in the nation. Our boys in the Troop range in age from 11 to 18. The First United Methodist Church currently sponsors the Troop, and they have been our sponsor for the longest number of years since we became a Troop. The Troop is a boy-run organization and is under the authority of our patrol leaders' council. We strive to live by the Scout Oath and the 12 points of the Scout Law. We believe in service to God, country, and family. We meet once a week on Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. and try to have at least one outing per month. This outing is usually an event that lets us practice what we have learned from that month's theme. The boys advance in rank at their own pace and have the opportunity to learn about a new hobby or trade by earning merit badges in a particular field of interest. We live by the saying, “Scouting is a game with a purpose."
