     The requirement for any boy to join the Cubscouts are that he is between first (1) and fifth (5) grade and that an official BSA registration be completed and signed by parent or guardian and the Cubmaster.

     The program is designed as family and home-centered. Boys work on requirements of their ranks with their parents and Cubscout leaders. The ranks are Tiger, Bobcat, Wolf, Bear and Webelos. The fourth and fifth grade boys are called Webelos and participate in more advanced activities that begin to prepare them to become Boy Scouts. Camping is done by the fifth grade Cub scouts only.

   Cub Pack 660 continues to meet every Monday evening at 7:15 PM at Knox Presbyterian Church. Den meeting for the Wolf, Bear, and Webelos are held in the classrooms of the church with the pack meetings on the last Monday of each month held in Fellowship Hall.

A special Court of Honor is held in the spring for for graduating Webelos to "Cross the Bridge" into Troop 660.

    The Pack enjoys the excitement and anticipation of building and racing their wooden race cars at the annual Pinewood Derby in January and honoring the accomplishments of the scouts at the Blue and Gold dinner in February.

     Regular events like a frisby golf picnic, a field trip to a hockey game, a pumpkin carving work shop, a hike around Burke Lake, a Home Depot work shop, and a pizza/putt-putt party keep things busy and exciting throughout the year.

Venture Crew 660

is sponsored by Knox Presbyterian Church, located at 7416 Arlington Blvd, Falls Church, VA. Venture Crew 660 is just forming and meets every Thursday, from 7:15 to 8:30 pm. Crew 660 is a new member of the George Mason District of the National Capital Area Council. Venturing is a new program of the Boy Scouts for young men and women who are 14 through 20 years of age. Membership in the crew is open to all boys and girls regardless of where they live or what their church affiliation is.

The requirements for any young man or woman to join the crew are that they be between fourteen (14) (and have completed the eighth grade) and twenty (20) years old and that an official BSA registration be completed and signed by the young man or woman and the Venture Advisor.

Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. What a Venturing Crew does is limited only by the imagination and involvement of the adult and youth leaders and members of the crew: sail the Caribbean, climb a mountain, raft or kayak rivers, or pursue the Ranger of Silver Award.


Troop 660

is sponsored by Knox Presbyterian Church, located at 7416 Arlington Blvd, Falls Church, VA. Troop 660 meets every Monday, from 7:15 to 8:30 pm.

The requirement for any boy to join the Boy Scouts are that he is between eleven (11) (or completed the fifth grade) and seventeen (17) years old and that an official BSA registration be completed and signed by parent or guardian and the Scoutmaster.

The program is designed to achieve the aims of Scouting of instilling within the youth desirable qualities of character, to train them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to help develop their personal fitness. This is done through a vigorous outdoor program and peer group leadership with the counsel of an adult Scoutmaster.
