We are based at St. Joseph Parish in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. We welcome all families.

Pack 9 FAQ

Who can join Cub Scouts?

Cub Scouting is for boys and girls in 1st - 5th grade. Our Pack includes scouts from different neighborhoods and schools in Seattle. Our pack is led by parent volunteers, who receive training and support from the Boy Scouts of America.

What are your activities?

Camping, hiking, learning to use tools, community service (assembling hygiene kits for homeless, singing at tent city), racing model cars, building bristle bots, visiting law enforcement offices and a fire station are a few of the activities our scouts have done this year.

When does your pack meet?

Our Scouts meet three times per month. Please see our calendar for specifics. One meeting is the Pack meeting, which includes boys from all the age groups. Two other meetings are with their Den, which is age specific.

Where do you meet?

Our monthly Pack meeting is at St. Joseph School in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The den meetings can vary in location depending on the activity. (Our pack is sponsored by St. Joseph Parish, but Scouts do not need to be students at St. Joe's to join pack 9.)

Why join Cub Scouts?

While the boys are having fun and doing activities they enjoy, they also discover and master new skills, gain self-confidence, and develop strong friendships.

How do I join?

2016 – 2017 Pack 9 Event Highlights

Spring camping trip – The capstone to our year was a campout at Deception Pass State Park. Boys had a fantastic time exploring the beach, cooking over the fire, and hiking area trails. We even had the bonus of having our campsite under an eagle's nest.
Tiger & Wolf Den Hike – The Tiger and Wolf Dens completed a hike at Seattle's Discovery Park. During their activity they learned about the Outdoor Code, Leave No Trace, northwest plants, and the Cub Scout six essentials.
Pinewood Derby – Pack 9 scouts took part in the Thunderbird District Pinewood Derby. The race featured nearly 80 cars from the Scout Packs and Troops around Seattle. Scouts from Pack 9 took the top honors for Best Built Car, Weirdest Car, and Coolest Car!
Bike Rodeo – The May pack meeting featured a bike rodeo, where scouts learned riding skills and bike safety. Scouts navigated a "demon driveway", "crazy cross roads" and an obstacle course. Special thanks to the Cascade Bicycle Club for their bike rodeo kit with signs, cones, and bisected tennis balls.
