 The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with FUN! They believe — and, through over a century of experience, know — that helping youth is the key to a more conscientious and responsible future.

The Boy Scouts of America is the national organization, split into regional “Councils”. Our Council is the National Capital Area Council (NCAC). NCAC is also split into smaller geographic areas called “Districts”, our district is the Francis Scott Key (FSK) District.
The Pack is run by a Pack Committee, our dedicated parent volunteers!


Cub Scout Program 
Cub Scouting is an active program. Youth learn by doing, and there's no end to the fun things that Cub Scouts do in their dens, as a pack, and at special events. With activities held at every level—family, den, and pack—Cub Scouting provides a year-round program of fun and learning for youth and their families.

Cub Scout Camping

Learn to live in the outdoors. Camping takes you on exciting adventures into the natural world.

Cub Scout Derbies

Racing in a Cub Scout derby is great fun. You'll get to design your racing vehicle, work with a parent to build it, and see it perform on race day. 

Outings and Field Trips

"Outing" is a big part of Scouting. Cub Scouts get out and about with many kinds of outdoor fun, such as field trips, hikes, nature and conservation.
Service Projects

Doing service projects together is one way that Cub Scouts keep their promise "to help other people."

Den and Pack Meetings
Den meetings are the stepping-stones by which a youth progresses through the Cub Scout program. At pack meetings, families celebrate their achievements along the way.

Blue and Gold Banquets
In February, when Scouting celebrates its "birthday", packs across the country hold blue and gold banquets. In nearly all packs, the banquet is a very special event.
