Pack Information

COVID-19 UPDATE 6/2020
Our pack is one of a select few units that are meeting in-person under strict social distancing protocols when allowed by state guidelines.
While we normally meet at a school, since it is closed we are meeting outdoors in local parks and venues.
As it becomes darker earlier and colder outside we are forced to move to ZOOM meetings.
But we still know how to have FUN!
Welcome to Pack 458 and the wonderful world of 
Cub Scouting!  Pack 458 was first chartered in April 1958 and has continued to provide the scouting experience for the past sixty plus years.  NEW in 2018 Cub Scouts was opened up and is now for all boys and girls in the Kindergarten through Fifth grades.  Since most packs are organized around a school or church the majority of our scouts attend Parkside Montessori (formerly Parkside Elementary), LEAD Academy (formerly Horrall Elementary), Bayside STEAM Academy (formerly Bayside Middle School), or Saint Timothy Catholic Schools.  And in 2021 we are adding North Shoreview Montessori to our roster so we can serve the entire east side since geographically  this pack serves all boys and girls who live on the east side of Highway 101 between Hillsdale Boulevard (to the south) and Peninsula Avenue (to the north), including the neighborhoods of North Shoreview, Shoreview, Parkside, Lakeshore, Los Prados, Bridgepoint, Harbortown, Mariners Green and all areas east to the Foster City border line.   Our pack is open to any boy or girl who wishes to join us regardless of location or neighborhood or school

Our pack is comprised of dens, which are organized by grades.  Each den is led by a trained den leader who is a parent volunteer, using the "two-deep" youth protection program like is used in other youth programs.

Our pack meets twice a month, on the second and fourth Wednesday in the LGI room at Parkside Montessori School located at 1685 Eisenhower Street.  Meetings start promptly at 6:30pm and end at 8:00pm.

The first meeting of the month is our DEN meeting,
where after the general business is concluded the scouts break out into their respective dens and do fun activities related to their achievements for rank advancement.  The second meeting of the month is also a DEN meeting except in Sept, Dec, Feb, and May where they are our PACK meetings  where all scouts and families are invited (and strongly encouraged) to attend as this is a big awards night.   In addition, throughout the year there are also opportunities for den and pack events such as archery picnics, camping trips, day hikes and other field trips of interest. 

Cub Scouting is very much a cub-parent activity. Parents attend meetings with their cub scout and are encouraged to participate in other ways, too. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved such as; uniformed den leader, planning meetings, organizing trips, and lending your talent in any way you can think of. The whole family is invited (and strongly encouraged) to attend the pack meetings and ceremonial meetings.
