Welcome to Pack 858!  Join Us Today!
For over 100 years, Cub Scouts have been having the time of their lives making new friends and learning new things in an environment designed to help them succeed. Cub Scouts has activities for the entire family to enjoy together. If your son is in Kindergarten through fifth grades, it's time to put down the Xbox get outdoors and have some fun.
 
Through fun activities, challenging adventures and community service projects, Cub Scouts make new friends and discover the importance of cooperation, citizenship, responsibility and physical fitness in their everyday lives.  

We want you to join our pack today.  Contact Cubmaster@pack858.org for more information.

Events

***Some events below are managed and planned by GSLAC, our council, and therefore you will need to register with them in order to participate.  All efforts are made to get correct details from GSLAC, but please refer to the event description itself (via the included link) rather than this website for accuracy.  Also, be aware that most GSLAC events require pre-registration (and payment), and do not normally allow for walk-in participants the same day of the event.***


SUMMER CAMP INFORMATION

The GSLAC information on Summer Camps has been posted for our area.  Check here for details on Day and Overnight Camps offered by our Council this summer.

We are asking for you interest in participating in one of the Council offered Family Camps.  This is a one-night camp at one of the Greater St. Louis Area Camps.  Please click this link to fill out a form specifying what location/dates would work for your family, then we will follow up with the formal registration process when we have decided on the event(s) that the pack will be coordinating.

Here is a Google Workbook with multiple sign-up sheets for Day Camps and the rest of the Overnight Camps.  
Please sign up on any sheet that interests you and if there are options for Camp Location and Dates, please indicate your preferences for your family.

Volunteer.  
You can make a difference in your community!

Area families and seniors depend on the food that our volunteers sort, box and repackage in our Volunteer Center.

Whether you’re volunteering as an individual or as part of a group, spending a few hours at the Foodbank makes for a great field trip or team-building experience.  Our Volunteer Center bustles with activity five days a week and the results are real.  Last year, volunteers packaged 5.6 million pounds of food.

Time Commitment:  All shifts on all days are a full three-hour commitment.

Dress Code:  Please wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes.

Ages:  Three years and up. Preferably one adult for every five to ten kids under the age of 16.

Address:  70 Corporate Woods Dr. Bridgeton, MO 63044


We will be including a sign-up sheet for this event soon!
