How is Cub Scouts organized?

As a Cub Scout, you will be part of your own pack that consists of scout K-5 and their families. The pack is divided into smaller groups called dens. Each den has about six to eight Cub Scouts of the same grade level and may even go to the same school.

Cub Scout pack 29 belongs to a church that makes sure we has good adult leaders, a place to meet, and exciting things to do.

Den Leaders

An adult, usually a parent, serves as a Den Leader. They carry out the activities related to adventures as they are presented in the Cub Scout’s handbook and the Den Leader Guide.


The pack is made up of several dens. The make up and size of the pack varies based on local interest and resources. Each pack is identified by a number.


The leader of the pack meeting is the Cubmaster. In addition to serving as the master of ceremonies the Cubmaster provides support to Den Leaders.
