Cub Scout Pack 290 was chartered in June 2023 and is serving scouts in grades K-5 in the Stafford, VA area . We are part of the Aquia District in the National Capital Area Council and is sponsored by American Legion Post 290.
Den Meetings are held at 630 pm on Friday evenings and some weekend events, with Pack Meetings scheduled for the 4th Friday of the month.
Our goal is to foster the BSA vision of building our youth into conscientious, responsible, and productive boys and girls by instilling in them lifetime values and developing ethical character traits as expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. We want to create an environment that fosters a sense of community while keeping the fun in scouting. As Baden Powell once said, we are building “Happy, Healthy, and Helpful Citizens.”
We are required to ensure that all our leaders are properly trained, so our scouts can be mentored in a safe environment provided by our sponsor organization. In addition, we encourage our leaders to attend regular Scout training events and monthly round tables (2nd Thursday of the Month held at Ebenezer UMC at 730pm). We are proud to have present leaders who are Eagle Scouts.
