WHO WE ARE

The Scouting adventure begins with Cub Scouting, a year-round family program designed for boys in the 1st through 5th grades, or 7 to 10 years of age.  Cub Scouts is for all boys 1st grade through 5th grade that enjoy playing sports, fishing, hiking, camping and learning about the great outdoors. We offer our scouts lessons in citizenship, leadership, first aid, sports, nature, arts & crafts, camping, cooking and how to survive in the outdoors.

Pack 229 is part of the Signal Hill District  of the Pathway to Adventure Council of Boy Scouting which represents the northern Illinois communities of Barrington, north Hoffman Estates, Inverness, Lake Zurich, Palatine, and Rolling Meadows.  Our Pack is sponsored by North Barrington School PTO.  Pack 229 is dedicated to building scout awareness of self and community.  We welcome boys from first through fifth grade. Our Pack Meetings gather at North Barrington Elementary School from 7-8 on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.  Here the Scouts participate in Pack activities and programming and receive their award segments, activity pins, and other recognition.  Our Scouts are active in activities and outings.  The Pack sponsors activities throughout the year, including our Fall and Spring Campouts, and a Winter “camp-in”.  The majority of activities are geared toward the family so everyone in the family can have fun along with their scout.  Pack 229 gets the parents involved too! Whether its just helping your Scout fulfill requirements to complete his rank achievements or volunteering as an Adult Scout Leader, parents get to experience some of the fun and adventure too, while also learning new skills!!

It’s never too late to join scouts!  If your son is interested in joining our Pack, please attend one of our Pack Meetings and speak with a leader, or complete the contact form.
