About Pack 159 - What we do...

Pack 159 serves all boys in 1st through 5th grade at Jollyville and Pond Springs Elementary schools as well as boys attending private schools that live in the surrounding neighborhoods.  Originally chartered on 10/01/1971, Pack 159 is one of the older and more established Cub Scout Packs in the Northwest Austin area.

Boys can join Cub Scouts at any time during the year. If you have a boy interested in joining, just attend any of our Pack meetings to check it out. You can ask any adult in uniform how to join. Additionally you can contact any of the Pack leaders below by phone or email to inquire further about Cub Scouting.

Pack Meetings and Pack Events are family events and we welcome your entire family to participate.

Pack Meetings are the 3rd Wed. of the month at the Pond Springs cafeteria from 6:45 – 8:00PM.
