About Pack 314
Cub Scout Pack 314 is part of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Pack 314 is chartered through St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church, 5801 Falls of Neuse Rd, Raleigh, NC.
As we are a "Cub Scout" Pack, our doors are wide open to ALL youth in (or entering) Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Many of our Scouts bridge to Troop 314 for Boy Scouts. Troop 314 is also chartered through St. Raphael.
Pack 314 has been continuously charted since 1962. Our average annual membership is 30-35 Scouts. While Pack 314 is proud of every Scout that has been part of the Pack, we are especially proud of the significant number of Eagle Scouts (~70 young men) who started their Scouting adventure with us. We are also proud of the many "Quality Unit" and other awards Pack 314 has earned/received over the years.
Pack 314 follows the regulations of the BSA. The Pack's focus is for Scouts to have fun - and in the process supplement the education they receive at home, church, and school by fostering character development and spiritual growth.
The twelve core values in Scouting are that a Scout is "trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent". Pack 314 places great emphasis on those values, and for every Cub Scout to "do his best" in everything he undertakes.
Pack 314 also places extreme emphasis on "youth safety" and "youth protection". We ensure that our Leaders are formally trained, and that they are familiar with and adhere to BSA's Guide to Safe Scouting. We mandate "two-deep leadership" ALWAYS, to provide the safest environment possible for the boys in the Pack. For all activities planned within the Pack, "age-appropriate" and "safe" are mandatory requirements (as well as "FUN").
