About Pack 928

Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 928, based in Rockville, Maryland! We are glad you are here.

 

Our Pack meets on the third Monday of each month, from 7:00 until 8:30 pm, at Rockville United Methodist Church at 112 W. Montgomery. If your child is between first and fifth grade and considering Scouting, we invite you to come to one of our Pack meetings to see what it's all about. (Contact the den leader that matches your boy's grade for more info. Or the Cub Master or Pack Committee Chair.)


We are also actively recruiting girls between first and fifth grade. The girls will have their own den and will participate in all pack activities throughout the year, in addition to den-only activities.

 

Activities

Our Pack is large and vibrant, with over 50 children. We go camping as a Pack at least twice each year, in the fall and spring. These family campouts are a lot of fun and typically include more than 100 Cub Scouts, parents, and siblings. We go on hikes, play outdoor games, cookout, tell stories and sing songs around the campfire, and sleep under the stars!

 

Each year we also hold good-natured races: the Raingutter Regatta (breath-powered model boats), and the Pinewood Derby (model cars run on tracks).

 

Service

We believe in being good citizens. That means going above and beyond to provide service to the community. Each year, Pack 928 takes part in Scouting For Food, a region-wide food collection initiative, that last year resulted in over 50,000 pounds of food for area food pantries. Each spring we dress up in our grubbies and pitch in to clean the grounds of Rockville United Methodist Church, our sponsoring organization that kindly allows us to hold meetings in their facility. 

 

 

 

We are always on the lookout for new ways to be of service. Please get in touch with the Pack Committee Chair or Cub Master (listed here on the contacts page) if you have ideas.

 

Family Pack

Pack 928 is a family Pack. That means that all parents and siblings are welcome at all events. Parents don't just drop the children off and pick up when it's all through; they participate. All parents are expected to pitch in. Yes, Pack 928 can be a significant family commitment -- but hundreds of families have found it to be rewarding and fun over the years.

 

Organization

When children join Cub Scouts, they are divided up into Dens according to grade. Each Den has a Den Leader, typically the parent of one of the children. Each Den usually meets once or twice per month, where the cub scouts work on achievements toward fulfilling the requirements of their rank.

 

Together, the Dens form a Pack. The Pack meets once per month, where boys are recognized for their accomplishments. There is usually a fun and educational program at Pack meetings.

 

A number of Packs make up a District, and in turn a number of regional Districts combine to form a Council. Pack 928 is in the Potomac District of the National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
