Since 1960, Pack 1 has provided the youth of Ballston Spa a Scouting experience that developed in them skills and knowledge that they have carried through their entire lives.

Several of our Cub Scouts have gone on to Boy Scout Troop 1, which is one of the oldest continually chartered Boy Scout Troops in the United States (chartered since 1913) and dozens of those Scouts have earned their Eagle Scout!


Pack 1 is made up of Scouts ranging from those in Kindergarten (Lions) to fifth grade (Arrow of Light) mostly from Gordon Creek, Malta Ave, Milton Terrace and Wood Road Elementary Schools. We are chartered through the United Methodist Church of Ballston Spa. Pack 1 is part of the Turning Point District of the Twin Rivers Council.

Our Cubmaster and all of our Den Leaders are fully trained adult volunteers who each bring with them their own life and Scouting experience to provide the Scouts with the highest quality Scouting program possible and are committed to providing your son with a safe and fun environment.

We would love to welcome you and your family into our Blue and Gold family. Contact us today to find out how you can join Pack 1!
