Who We Are
Pack 259 was founded in 1964 by families looking for a cub scout troop for four boys from the Pocket/Greenhaven area. It was founded at Bear Flag School by Bob and Mary Fong.
We are a Co-Ed pack, which means we accept Boys and Girls from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Each gender will have its own Den and leader for each rank. All scouts follow the same curriculum, go on the same outings, earn the same awards according to rank.
Pack Meetings are held the third Thursday of every month at 7pm. Please come out and join us!
Den Meetings are held on various days and times according to the schedule of the Den leader and the families assigned to that Den. Dens usually meet twice a month, but switch to once a month over summer.
If you and your Son or Daughter are interested in joining Pack 259, please use the contact form on the home page, or email us at

What We Offer
Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of children and their families. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Family involvement is an essential part of the program, and parents are encouraged to play an active role in making the most of the short time they have to impact the lives of their children.
