Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 285.  Our Charter Organization is St. John's Lutheran Church at 2451 Fairview Ln in Mound, MN.  Pack 285 has been a part of the Mound Community for over 70 years.

 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 certain values and beliefs.  Cub Scouting is more than something to do.  It's all about the boy you are and the person you will become.  To learn more about Cub Scouting and what it is all about, visit the Boy Scouts of America Cub Scouts page.

If you have a boy interested in Cub Scouts and would like to find out more about our group, join us for one of our monthly Pack meetings.  Go to the Calendar tab to see when our next meeting is scheduled.
