Welcome to Pack 1758
We’re so excited that your family is interested in Cub Scouting!
Cub Scouting is fun for the whole family. In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life.
Cub Scouting involves the entire family!
That’s right – Cub Scouts isn’t just for kids. There’s something in it for you, too! Time… We know families are busy, often feeling crunched for quality time. Cub Scouting provides opportunities to spend time together while setting your kids on the path to future success. From volunteering with the pack, to leading family activities at home, parents can choose how involved they’d like to be. No pressure here…just amazing experiences!
Please read the Welcome Packet to get a great introduction to Cub Scouting.

Why Join Cub Scouting?
If you could give only one gift to the young people who are most important in your life, what would it be? No matter what your family situation is, it is within your power to help these children grow into people with a good feeling about themselves and a genuine concern for others. Cub Scouting can assist you in providing this greatest gift of all.
Cub Scout-age children benefit developmentally from belonging to a small group of peers. Your child will be a part of a den, a small group of Cub Scouts in the same grade level and who are of the same gender. Through this sense of belonging, children build self-esteem and learn to get along with others.
As a parent, you want to be assured that the groups that your child joins will teach values consistent with good citizenship, character development, personal fitness, and leadership. The values we seek to instill are found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. We know that kids do not join Cub Scouting for character building. Kids join because it is fun. Your child will learn great lessons, but they will be far too busy having fun to notice

The Cub Scout pack is made up of all the dens, which meet monthly at the pack meeting, led by the Cubmaster. There are games, skits, songs, ceremonies, and presentations of achievements and badges that Cub Scouts earned during that month. This is where families can see the achievements of their Cub Scout.The pack, including families, also participates in other special events throughout the year, including:Pinewood derby®—You can build and race a model car with your child. Blue and gold banquet—Cub Scouting’s birthday party—for all pack members and their families— takes place in February. Camping—Overnight and day camp opportunities introduce your family to the camping experience.
Historically, our pack meets start at 7PM every third Thursday of the month at Lakewood Elementary School or Robert Frost Middle School during the school year.
We will follow Montgomery County’s guidance in relation to COVID protocols.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Do your best.
