Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts

For over a century, the Boy Scouts of America has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The BSA believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society. More information on scouting can be found at

Available to: 1st - 8th grade boys

The scouting program is broken into a younger boy program, Cub Scouts, and an older boy program, Boy Scouts. Boys in 1st and 5th grade participate in Cub Scouts. Boys at St. Mary’s Pack 301 are assigned to a den, usually a neighborhood group of six to eight boys. Tiger Cubs (first-graders), Wolf Cub Scouts (second-graders), Bear Cub Scouts (third-graders), and Webelos Scouts (fourth and fifth-graders) meet regularly. Once a month, all of the dens and family members gather for a pack meeting under the direction of a Cubmaster and pack committee. See Pack Website for our most current schedule!

Boys in 6th through 12th grade participate in Boy Scouts. Troop 301, chartered by St. Mary’s Church. Meeting time and location is determined by the troop leader and communicated to the troop. The troop has an outdoor event every month, generally an overnight camping and hiking trip in the area. Become an Eagle Scout with all that comes with it. Learn leadership, outdoor and other skills that will help prepare you for what lies ahead.

Volunteers run our scouting programs, so all parents of all scouts are expected to help the organization by volunteering time and talents.
