About Cub Scouts and Pack 501

Cub Scouts LogoAbout Scouting

In Cub Scouting, you’ll have lots of fun, adventure, and activities with your den and pack. But there’s more to it than that. Being a Cub Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for values and beliefs. Cub Scouting is more than something to do. It’s all about the person you are and the person you will become.

Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped young boys and girls through Cub Scouting. It is a year-round family program designed for boys and girls who are in Kindergarten through fifth grade (or 5-10 years of age). Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting. Currently, Cub Scouting is the largest of the BSA’s three membership divisions. (The others are Boy Scouting and Venturing.)

The ten purposes of Cub Scouting are:

Character Development Spiritual Growth Good Citizenship
Sportsmanship and Fitness Family Understanding Respectful Relationships
Personal Achievement Friendly Service Fun and Adventure
Preparation for  Scouts

About Pack 501

Pack 501 is sponsored by Learning Detectives LLC Mesa, Arizona. Our pack meetings are regularly held on the 3rd

Wednesday evening each month at Sequoia Pathfinder Academy in Eastmark from 6:30-7:30 pm. Pack 501, as an active pack, is constantly achieving “Quality Unit status”, also known as Journey to Excellence along with generous adult volunteer leadership that allows Pack 501 to provide one of the greatest Cub Scout experiences around.

Pack 501 is part of the Grand Cayon Council.

Pack Leadership

The dedication and commitment of our Pack Committee, Cubmaster, and Den Leaders enables us to have an outstanding program to offer. They spend hours planning for den meetings, pack meetings, camping, and special events. It is this leadership that enables our Pack to offer our Scouts an opportunity to grow and advance.
