Cub Scout Pack 162 is chartered by Keowee Elementary School PTA in Seneca South Carolina. We are part of the Oconee District in the Blue Ridge council. We provide scouting opportunities for both girls and boys, in grades kindergarten to 5th grade.
Although we are chartered by the Keowee Elementary PTA, we welcome all scouts, no matter where they attend school. We have had scouts from other schools including Oconee Christian Academy as well as home school. We have had cub scouts near Seneca, SC from surrounding towns such as Walhalla, Westminster, West Union and Salem.
Our goal is to foster the BSA vision of building our youth into conscientious, responsible, and productive boys and girls by instilling in them lifetime values and developing ethical character traits as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. We want to create an environment that fosters a sense of community while keeping the fun in scouting.
We are required to ensure that all our leaders are properly trained, so our scouts can be mentored in a safe environment provided by our sponsor organization. In addition, we encourage our leaders to attend regular Scout training events and monthly round tables.
We hold Cub Scout meetings every other Sunday at 2:00 pm during the school year at the scout hut located on Golf Drive in Seneca. The scout hut is located just behind the Keowee Ebeneezer fire department, which is just next to Keowee Elementary.
Most of our scouts cross over into Boy Scout Troop 120, which also meets in the same scout hut. Find more about Troop 120 on their website.
