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 tie knots, set up a tent, shoot a bow and arrow (archery). Have you ever cooked a meal on a campfire? Sent a secret code to a buddy? Built a birdhouse? Played Ultimate? Hiked? Earn rewards for doing these things in Cub Scouts!
Sponsored by the Woodridge Elementary School PTO, Cub Scout Pack 3171 holds pack meetings once a month, typically on the third Thursday. Pack meetings are open to all members of our Cub Scout families, so feel free to bring siblings.
Dens are small groups of boys (usually 8-10) who are in the same grade. They typically meet twice a month.
- Tigers – 1st Grade (parents must attend all meetings with their Tigers)
- Wolves – 2nd Grade
- Bears – 3rd Grade
- Webelos 1s – 4th Grade
- Webelos 2s – 5th Grade
Join us as we continue to serve our youth members in the Woodridge school district!
Our Pack consists of Scouts and families, all of who attend our events and outings. Besides Pack and Den Meetings, our Scouts enjoy camping outings, as well as visits to fire stations, local museums and hikes in the National Park!
Scouts participate in age appropriate activities from field trips for our younger groups, to hikes and woodworking for our older youth. All our Scouts enjoy a variety of group activities under adult guidance, such as Rocket Rallies, Raingutter Regattas, and the every famous Pinewood Derby! Join us for our next outing!
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 boys have fun in the process!
