"Home of the best little pack in Kenosha!"
Welcome to the official website of the Mighty McKinley Pack 515! This site is dedicated to all of the fantastic families and incredible kids of our pack both past, present and future. Pack 515 is chartered through the McKinley Elementary PTO here in the wonderful Kenosha, WI. We’re part of what is known as the Gateway District of the Southeast Wisconsin BSA Council #634 located in Racine, WI.
Although all packs run the same basic program, each does it their own unique and special way. The primary theme of our little pack is “family time”. Throughout the entire year we have activities, field trips, and outings that are not only geared toward achieving awards, but also designed to provide opportunities to do things with our children and build lasting memories. Pack 515 is a family pack, and the entire family is always welcome and encouraged to come to any and every event and activity. So grab your little sister, pick up Grandpa Joe, and bring Aunt Betty and Uncle George, everyone is welcome!
Currently we have about 25 active scouts spread out between 1st and 5th grade. Having the flexibility of being based out of a public school, our pack for years has been very diverse and a melting pot of sorts for the entire district. We have an open door policy and accept families and kids from anywhere and everywhere, not just McKinley. Approximately 1/3 of our scouts are actually from other schools or even home schooled. Pack 515 doesn’t just recruit once a year, we openly welcome anyone to join scouting all year round. One of our many slogans is “Any Kid, From Any School, At Any Time”, meaning we welcome any child from any area to join us at any time.
Feel free to contact us for more information, or just pop in at any of our pack events on the calendar to check us out. If you would like to learn more about other packs in the area, feel free to contact our council at the information below as well.
