Welcomes to Pack 858 - Where Cub Scouts Blaze New Trails
For over 80 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 the first through fifth grades, or 6 to 10 years old, 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.
