About Our Pack
Pack 80 Cub Scouting is made up of Kindergarten through 5th Grade boys and girls. Cub Scouts have a lot of fun doing a lot of interesting things! There are games to play, codes and skills to learn, places to see and new friends to meet. Cub Scouts all help each other, and try to help other people too. During a month you'll get together with other kids your age and be led into adventure! You'll wear your own Cub Scout uniform to show you're one of us. And you'll be able to collect special badges to put on your uniform to show your achievements. We spend weekends away together camping, hiking, and exploring. We camp overnight at Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. We go to the zoo, the museum, visit our local fire station and police station. And of course, we build and race Pinewood Derby Cars every year! There are so many fun things that Cub Scouts do! Why not come along and find out?

What is Cub Scouting?
The Cub Scout program is designed for boys and girls in Kindergarten through 5th Grades. Children in Kindergarten enter as Lions and progress through ranks of Tiger (1st Grade), Wolf (2nd Grade), Bear (3rd Grade) and Webelos I (4th Grade) and Webelos II (5th Grade). At the completion of the Cub Scout Program the boys and girls are ready to join a Scouting Troop. Children can join the program at any rank, you do not have to start only at Kindergarten age.
BSA is our nation’s foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training, which helps young people be “Prepared. For Life.” The BSA organization is composed of approximately 2.2 million youth members between the ages of 5 and 21 and approximately 800,000 volunteers in local councils throughout the United States and its territories. Since its inception in 1910, more than 130 million young men and women have participated in the BSA’s youth programs. More than 35 million adult volunteers have helped carry out the BSA’s mission.
