Our Story and Overview...

Pack 577 started in 1961 and has a rich history of teaching youth from the first to fifth grade. We are part of the Hightower District of the Atlanta Area Council Boy Scouts of America. Our Pack is sponsored by the Oak Grove United Methodist Mens Fellowship of Oak Grove United Methodist Church.

Our pack is one of the largest in Atlanta. Each year, more than 150 boys participate in our activities.  We have our monthly pack meetings usually on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 7:45 in the Fellowship Hall of Oak Grove United Methodist Church. Our dens meet a different times of the month based on the schedule set with each den leader and the boy’s parents.

Our main goal is to make sure our Cub Scouts have fun, while learning valuble skills that will serve them throughout their lives! We do this by teaching our boys outdoor skills, sportsmanship, how to work with others, citizenship and more.

Our pack is supported by more than 40 parent volunteers, the parents of our Scouts. They serve in many ways, as Pack or Den leaders, camping coordinators, coordinating our Pinewood Derby, etc.

The video below will give you and your son a great feel for our annual activities.  The calendar will give you dates for our upcoming events.


Each year, our Pack raises funds to support our program by selling popcorn. This income supplements annual dues of approximately $75.00 dollars.
