We Build Character!
Now celebrating our 27th anniversary serving Clifton Park, Round Lake, Ballston Lake and Halfmoon.
We thank our wonderful host and charter organization, Corpus Christi Church, which continues to be very supportive of scouting! Corpus Christi was voted as charter organization of the year in Saratoga District!
Pack 44 welcomes boys in Kindergarten through 5th grade from many schools (predominately Chango and Karigon). Boys may join the pack at any time throughout the year. Please contact the Unit Leadership (see link on the right) for more information.
We promote the core values of cub scouting such as Citizenship, Cooperation, Perseverance, Respect, and Responsibility. Boys get to make new friends and gain a sense of accomplishment by completing badge requirements and receiving awards. Our robust program showcases fun family-based monthly themes and guest speakers, camping trips, community service, and the popular pinewood derby race! Other fun outings in the past have included camping, geocaching, rocket launching, bike rodeo, snow tubing, movie nights, and overnight museum trips! Family is always welcome to attend all meetings and events.
Check out our calendar of events below to see the upcoming fun, family-based activities and camping.
