BSA Pack 8

Welcome to Pack 8!

Pack 8 is one of the oldest packs in the USA.  We are an inclusive and family-oriented group with about 80 boys and girls from kindergarten through 5th grade from schools throughout Montgomery County.  


Are you ready for an exciting 2024-2025 year of scouting with Pack 8?!


Your Pack 8 leadership team has worked hard over the summer to ensure we have an amazing program. First things first - we need to get everyone enrolled!

If you are new to scouting and you haven't enrolled in the national scouting website please click here.  Once you application is approved you will get an email from Ben Shouse, one of our Pack leaders, with a username and password for our site. 

If you are a returning scout you should have received an email from us on Sep 10th with details on how to log in and pay your dues.  If you did not receive an email let us know (link) and we will get it sorted out.     

Our first meeting is TBD.  Don't worry about uniforms.  If you are a returning scout/parent and you'd like to wear an old Cub Scout shirt that would be awesome (it's always fun to see all the versions!).  We will have an informational session for parents during this first meeting where we will review the plan for the year and answer questions.


In the interim, if you have questions about joining, including scholarship availability, please email me.

Thanks for visiting our website and we look forward to sharing another exciting year of scouting!

Yours in service -
