Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 448

Trinity United Methodist Church
2303 Jones Blvd. Murfreesboro, TN

Since 1961, the United Methodist Men of Trinity United Methodist Church have actively supported and chartered BSA Troop 448 and Pack 448. This tradition has resulted in 59 young men earning the highest rank of Eagle Scout while having fun, becoming leaders, and experiencing a journey of a lifetime.

Cub Scouts
Do Your Best. Have Fun Doing It.

The best way to find out what you do best is to do it. Swing a bat. Pitch a tent. Build a pinewood derby car. Cub Scouts are at that magical age where everything is new and possible and, most important, fun. They live in a world of “firsts”—first home run, first campfire, first checkered flag—where their game plan is their imagination. Their most valuable reward is the friends they make for life and a parent’s proud smile. These are invaluable experiences that can be had in Scouting. These are life lessons that transform today’s Cub Scouts into tomorrow’s Boy Scouts.
