Welcome to the Best of Bethesda Scouting!

Pack 8 is an all-inclusive, family-oriented community. We encourage sibling participation in all our events. Pack 8 is welcoming boys and girls from Kindergarten through 5th grade for the 2018-2019 Cub Scouting Year. Our program is designed to offer 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. We generally meet the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM at Our Lady of Lourdes school in Bethesda. In addition to this monthly meeting, Cubs can expect their age specific Den to meet once a month, and to have about one other Pack wide event or outing each month including service projects, camping trips, other other outings. You can download the attached information flyer for more details. While access to many parts of our website is granted only to members of the Troop (by login), we would be delighted to hear from any interested families. 

How to join Cub Scout Pack 8: You can complete an application to Cub Scout Pack 8 via the my.Scouting.org website by CLICKING HERE. You may be contacted by a Pack 8 adult leader to verify your application before it is accepted. After your application is accepted, you will be provided login information and asked to pay your annual Pack 8 dues upon joining via this website. Dues for the 2018-2019 program are $130 dollars and cover the full program except camping trips and personal intems like the Cub Uniform and book.
