Welcome 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.

We are happy to welcome our New Cubs!

Thanks to all of the families who came out to School Night to Join Scouting!  We are excited to welcome all of the new Cubs to our program.  If you weren't able to attend or know others who may want to join, contact our Cubmaster, Aaron Akins at Cubmaster@pack858.org.

We welcome boys from any school, religion, or background.

Pack Meeting: September 24th at 7:15PM, Location - Progress South Elementary Multipurpose Room

Scout Point: Clean


Everything we do impacts the world around us. When a Scout lives the “A Scout is clean” point of the Scout Law, he is choosing to make sure the legacy he leaves is a positive one. He makes moral choices, and through an active lifestyle he keeps his body healthy. He also is conscious of the impact he can have on nature and the responsibility he has to keep the world clean for those who come behind him.


Join us for our monthly pack meeting at Progress South. The start time is later this month to accommodate returning 5th grade campers.  Our Gathering activity starts at 7:00 PM and the meeting will begin promptly at 7:15 PM. Make sure your scout looks his best.

Dress:  Class A Uniforms
