Pack 9 FAQ

What is a pack?

A pack is a group of Scouts in grades K-5.  The pack is made up of dens which are grade specific groups, usually each grade forms a den. The pack and dens are led by parent volunteers who receive training from the national Scouts BSA organization.

Who can join Cub Scouts?

Cub Scouting is open to boys and girls in K - 5th grade. Our pack includes Scouts from different neighborhoods and schools in around Seattle. (Our pack is sponsored by St. Joseph Parish, but Scouts do not need to be students at St. Joe's, or a member of the parish to join Pack 9.)

How do I join?

Please send us a message using the contact form. One of our volunteer scout leaders will be in touch with details on our next events. Visit our join page for further details.

What are your activities?

Camping, hiking, biking, fishing, learning to use tools, community service, racing model cars, building bristle bots, visiting a fire station are a few of the activities our Scouts have done recently.

When does your pack meet?

We host a Pack Meeting (all dens included) at St. Joe's once a month (See Calendar below). Cub Den's meet individually at least once per month, and we also schedule weekend and other activities as a Pack or as Dens.

Where do you meet?

Our Pack meetings are in the St. Joseph's School gymnasium/auditorium. Den meetings are held in scout's homes or other venues as determined by the Den Leaders.
