Great Friendships

Your Den will be full of other Cub Scouts your age. All great kids that have similar goals, they will also likely be your best friends for years to come.

Having Fun

Den Meetings, Pack Meetings, Campouts, Hikes, and much more. There is a lot of fun to be had!

New Adventures

Advancing through the ranks requires new adventures. Learning about paleontology, fishing, wood shop, and much, much more, will give you the opportunity to try new things.

Why Choose Cub Scout Pack 178?

Located in Ahwatukee, AZ, Cub Scout Pack 178 is an active pack with leaders and parent volunteers dedicated to providing their cubs with an education and experiences that are both fun and rewarding.  We are a community, and you are welcome to join us!

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.

Ahwatukee Cub Scout Pack 178 Leadership Development

Leadership Development

Before scouts can lead, they must first become great followers and team players. But at the same time, self leadership is taught. Expectations on how to behave and interact within the den and pack are presented. Opportunities to lead are gradually presented to the cub.  This could include leading a hike or flag ceremony, or teaching younger scouts a skill.

Have Fun

Cub Scouts wouldn’t be as successful as it is without a tremendous amount of fun. The activities that Pack 178 participates always include the teaching of a skill, and this even includes what a cub would consider as pure play time.  Cub Scouts is fun!

Try New Things

Cub Scouts offers experiences that just aren’t available to most other kids outside the scouting program.  Camping, hiking, archery/bb-gun, fishing, pinewood derby, box car racing, and carpentry, are just the tip of the iceberg.  These Cub Scout experiences are the training grounds for true high adventure opportunities that are presented when the cub becomes a Boy Scout.  50 mile hikes, rock climbing, rifle shooting, and the myriad of merit badges covering virtually every aspect of life await your cub after their graduation into Boy Scouts.

New Friendships

Developing friendships with like-minded kids of his own age is one of the biggest reasons a scout joins and stays in scouting. Boys that join scouting at a young age and continue to grow throughout their adolescent years within the scouting program typically create lifelong relationships. And as one can imagine, these men typically turn out to be men of great character and success.

Character Development

Competition, service, teamwork, taking risks, trying new things.  These all offer the opportunity to develop character.  A Cub Scout lives by the Scout Law and Oath, which help mold the Cub Scout experience, and hence, the cub himself.

Great Outdoors

Many of our youth rarely get the opportunity to truly experience the outdoors.  Cub Scouts provides that opportunity for our cubs to enjoy and appreciate nature. To see a group of cubs playing in the wilderness puts video gaming to shame in regards to the pure joy they experience.  Just as important, camping is an incredible opportunity to experience family bonding.

Build Self Esteem

Cub Scouts offers the opportunity to try brand new things with other kids of their age. As a den, the group learns and bonds together as a team. Even the newest, shyest cub will find it irresistible to open up to his new best friends and enjoy the experience. Cub Scouts is one of the greatest grounds available for building great self-esteem.

Personal Responsibility

Pack 178 has a great group of trained leaders and active parent volunteers. For the pack and all the dens to achieve it’s goals, cubs must be responsible for their actions and behavior.  Expectations are presented in the form of the Scout Law and Oath, and sometimes, our cubs are reminded of how they need to behave. Personal responsibility is an important part of the scouting culture, and with it our cubs have a lot more fun and mature into successful, young men.
