BSA Pack # 173

Welcome To Harrisburg, North Carolina's Cub Scout Pack 173

For Information about joining Pack 173, please use our contact form on the left!


We are excited that you are considering joining us at Pack 173.  We meet Thursday evenings at Harrisburg Presbyterian Church. Den meeting times for K-2nd  grade are 6pm and 3rd-5th meet beginning at 7pm.  We meet one Thursday each month as an entire Pack to celebrate the achievements of the scouts (and have some fun, of course). 


In addition to the weekly meetings, we have a fun filled scouting year planned with monthly campouts and adventures.  Don’t worry if you’ve never camped before, we’ve got you covered.  If I can assist you with any questions related to Pack 173 and your decision to join us, please reach out.  Hope to see you on Thursday.

Welcome to Pack 173 of Harrisburg, NC!

We are proud to have been chartered by Harrisburg Presbyterian Church since December 1, 1960.

Our primary source of new scouts is the Harrisburg community but we welcome any child who wants to be a member of our unit. We serve children in grades K-5 and have about 50 youth members going into the 2019-2020 school year. While we continue to grow, our pack has retained a "family" atmosphere. We are privileged to have a great group of leaders and the incredible support of our scouts' parents and other family members. Adult involvement is strongly encouraged and most adult partners usually stay for our weekly den or pack meetings. Best of all, it's a whole lot of fun! 

We have a packed calendar for 2019-2020.  Plan to join us as we Zipline, Camp and View the stars with the Charlotte astronomy club (to just name a few).  

Each month's pack meeting focuses on the scouts' progress toward rank advancement during the prior month, but we still have LOTS of rowdy and silly fun in the process! We also teach our scouts the importance of community service with den-level and pack-wide service projects. In past years, in an effort to "Make A Difference," our Scouts held canned food drives to benefit a local food bank, assembled more than 400 Valentine's Day care packages to send to US troops stationed abroad, collected 163 pounds of soda can tops to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House, and earned more than $300 to donate to the Red Cross to aid the Haitian earthquake relief effort.

Again, we welcome you to the Pack 173 website. Please make sure to contact us if you have any questions. We would love to have you as our guest. Come check us out!
