Welcome to the Popcorn Page for Pack 502! Popcorn is one of two major ways that we help Cub Scouts take responsibility for their own costs of scouting – and it’s a great learning opportunity for your son. Your scout will to learn how to set goals, gain confidence, get rewards – and most of all to have fun with the rest of his pack. With popcorn sales, everybody wins – the Scout, the Pack and our Mecklenburg Council.
