About Cub Pack 497

Our Cub Scout Pack is dedicated to preserving the long standing tradition of Cub Scouts by providing boys the opportunity to participate in scouting activities that will enable the youth of today to become leaders of tomorrow.

Cub Scouting means "doing".  Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing activities.  These activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting - citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness.  Many of these activities happen during our weekly den meeting and/or our monthly pack meetings.

As a Cub Scout, you do your best and you help others.  You learn the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack and what it means.

Our Pack is chartered by and supported by St. Joseph Parish in Cockeysville, MD.  We welcome scouts of all backgrounds and faiths.

Our Pack is comprised generally of boys from the following schools:

  • St. Joseph's School
  • Padonia Elementary
  • Jacksonville Elementary
  • Warren Elementary

Information for new scouts:
