Falls Church, Virginia Cub Scout Pack 657
Cub Scout Pack 657 has been serving families in the Falls Church area since 1951. The pack has been rated a gold unit under both the current Journey to Excellence standards as well as previous Quality Unit assessments.
The pack is chartered by the Falls Church Presbyterian Church and is a member of the George Mason district of the National Capital Area Council (NCAC) of Scouts BSA. Many years of dedicated volunteers and generous sponsorship have allowed the pack to develop quality programs that are models for other units in the area.

The mission of the Scouts BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
The Scouts BSA will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
Scouting provides unique, life-changing experiences youth can’t get anywhere else.
