Cub Scout Pack 3079 - Chicago

Are you interested in enjoying adventures, having fun, making friends and learning valuable life skills?  Scouting makes this happen.  If you have a daughter or son in grades 1 through 5 and live on the north side of Chicago, join Pack 3079!

Pack 3079 is one of the largest, most active Cub Scouts groups in Chicago.  We camp three times a year, build and race model boats and cars among other fun activities and service projects.  Pack 3079 hosts one large meeting each month during the school at the Menomonee Club. This is called Pack Night.  Scouts in the same grade and of the same gender meet in small groups twice a month.  These are called den meetings.   Our formal meetings begin in September and run through May each year.  

What is Cub Scouts?

Fun with a purpose that aligns with Scouting's 12 core values of  Citizenship, Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Faith, Health and Fitness, Honesty, Perseverance, Positive Attitude, Resourcefulness, Respect, Responsibility.  

You can learn more about Cub Scouts in this Parent Orientation Guide.
