Join Cub Scouts

Be our guest at our next event to learn about Cub Scouting! Enjoy interesting and informative programs. Talk to Cub Scouts and their parents. Check out the boy’s Pinewood Derby cars, model rockets, and Rain Gutter Regatta boats. Find out about our hikes in the Du Page Forest Preserves, our geocache adventures, sports outings, museum trips, campouts and more.

Be Our Guest

We would like you to attend one of our meetings or events as our guest. Reservations are not required.

Hiking Club

Getting together with your friends and taking a stroll in the woods is a lot of fun. There is always something interesting to see and maybe even a geocache to find. So weather permitting, our pack’s hiking club meets once a month at one of the Forest Preserves. See the yellow Event Calendar found at the top of this web page and click “Hike” for the month you are interested in.

Guests are always welcome. New participants are awarded a First Hike patch for their brag vests. Our GPS tracked walks average about three miles each. We award a hiking badge at ten miles and segments to fit around it for each additional ten miles. At twenty five miles, scouts are awarded the much sought after official hiking stick. It features a leather hand grip and allows each scout to create his own unique design.


Most of our Cub Scouts attend Steeple Run Elementary School, but this is not a requirement for membership. We are fortunate to have a diverse membership drawn from a wide variety ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds.  We do have several scouts who attend Ranch View Elementary School as well.

Although our scout year follows the school calendar, boys are welcome to join our pack at anytime. They are assigned to an age appropriate den. First graders are Tigers, second graders Wolves, third graders Bears, fourth graders Webelos I, and fifth graders Webelos II.

As parents we have seen the positive effects of Scouting in our own sons. We know Scouting’s value first hand, which is why we work hard to keep it affordable and why we want to extend it to others.
