Welcome! Pack 179 is an active Cub Scout Pack of 50+ youth (boys AND girls*!) located primarily in North Boulder. We are open to all youth in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Generally, Pack 179 meets the third Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:00 pm at The American Legion, Post 10 (next to Gateway Fun Park) during the school year (Sept-May). The Pack is made up of Dens—smaller, single-gender, groups of boys or girls in the same grade. Dens typically meet 2 to 3 times a month.
Pack 179 has several special events each year:
- Overnight Campout at Camp Patiya up Flagstaff Mountain
- Boulder Lights of December Parade
- Blue & Gold Banquet (Feb)
- Pinewood Derby (Mar)
- Special Project - 2019-20 Year: Raingutter Regatta
- Pack Picnic with games and races
Each year, the scouts participate in a fundraiser to support Pack activities and awards. There are also opportunities to participate in area Council activities: Community Service Projects, CU Football games, Rockies & Avalanche Scout Days, Cub Scout resident and day camps and much more.
Our first Pack Meeting of the 2019-20 year will be on Wednesday, September 18th from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM at The American Legion, Post 10 - 4760 28th Street, Boulder. The meeting will be a fun meeting for the kids and an informational meeting for adults. If you and your child are interested in seeing what Cub Scouts is all about, please be our guest!
We're looking forward to a FANTABULOUS Scout Year!!
*Pack 179 IS accepting girls in Cub Scouts, however since this is brand new to us, and Cub Scouts in general, we are still forming girl dens. This means we are VERY interested in talking with any adults who might be willing to volunteer as Den Leaders so we can get these dens formed and started as soon as possible! Contact us today if interested!!
