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 all boys in the Kindergarten through Fifth grades. Since most packs are organized around a school or church the majority of our boys attend Parkside Elementary, LEAD Academy (formerly Horrall Elementary), or Saint Timothy Catholic Schools.
Geographically this pack serves all boys who live on the east side of Highway 101 between Hillsdale Boulevard and Third Avenue, including North Shoreview neighborhood unless your son attends NSM then that is served by another pack, and east to the Foster City border line. Though our pack is open to any boy who wishes to join us regardless of location or neighborhood.
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 Elementary 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 boys break out into their respective dens and do activities related to their achievements for rank advancement. The second meeting of the month is our PACK meeting where all boys and his families are invited (and strongly encouraged) to attend. In addition, throughout the year there are also opportunities for den and pack events such as 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 in such as; 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.
