Renewal date

Welcome to the Best of Bethesda Scouting!

Pack 8 is an inclusive, family-oriented community. Pack 8 is welcoming boys and girls from Kindergarten through 5th grade for the 2022-2023 Scouting Year. Our program offers fun and adventure as we make new friends, learn important life skills, and serve our community. New scouts are welcome to attend any of our meetings and may join at any time. Emerging from the COVID-19 response we are working to restore a safe, responsible, and more normal Scout program with in-person meetings. Login access to other parts of our website is granted only to members of the Pack, but we would be delighted to hear from any interested families.
