About Us

Pack 3171

Sponsored by the Woodridge Elementary School PTO, Cub Scout Pack 3171 holds pack meetings once a month, typically on the first Wednesday of the month. Pack meetings are open to all members of our Cub Scout families, so feel free to bring siblings.

Dens are small groups of scouts (usually 8-10) who are in the same grade.

  • Lions – Kindergarten (parents must attend all meetings with their Lions)
  • Tigers – 1st Grade (parents must attend all meetings with their Tigers)
  • Wolves – 2nd Grade
  • Bears – 3rd Grade
  • Webelos 1s – 4th Grade
  • Arrow of Light – 5th Grade

Join us as we continue to serve our youth members in the Woodridge School District!

What is Cub Scouting?

Cub Scouting is fun! No matter what grade you are in, first through fifth, it can be a blast. Do you like to learn by doing? This is just the place. You can learn to camp, set up a tent, shoot a bow and arrow (archery), tie knots, and so much more.  Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? Built a birdhouse? Played Ultimate Frisbee? Hiked? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts!

Character Development

Since its origin, the Scouting program has been an educational experience concerned with values. In 1910, the first activities for Scouts were designed to build character, physical fitness, practical skills, and service. These elements were part of the original Cub Scout program and continue to be part of Cub Scouting today.

Character development extends into every aspect of a boy’s life. Character development also extends into every aspect of Cub Scouting. Cub Scout leaders strive to use Cub Scouting’s 12 core values throughout all elements of the program—service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings and most of all ensure the scouts have fun in the process!
