Cub Scout Pack 131

Cub Scout Pack 131

Hello new scouts and parents!

Thank you for your interest in Pack 131.

This is our informational page for perspective new families.  We are happy to answer your questions and look forward to the opportunity to tell you more about our pack.

We are sponsored by the Verdugo Woodlands Dads’ Club in Glendale California and welcome both boys and girls from Kindergarten through fifth grade.  Our neighbor school is Verdugo Woodlands Elementary, however we welcome scouts from any school, including home-school. Our member families come from  all parts of Glendale, Pasadena, Eagle Rock, Mount Washington and beyond.

When you join pack 131, you’ll be a part of a growing community of families committed to encouraging confidence, friendship, service to our community, fun and adventure.

We are an inclusive pack that welcomes all scouts and their families.  Starting in the spring of 2018, Pack 131 was one of the first Cub Scout units to incorporate Family Scouting into our program, which for the first time allowed girls to join Cub Scouts.   We’re very excited to grow our ranks even more this fall.

A Word From Our Cubmaster

Pack 131 is run entirely by parent volunteers, and the success of our program is entirely dependent on the dedication and participation of our moms and dads.   Not only is being a Den Leader, Committee Member or other parent volunteer a lot of fun, it’s an incredibly rewarding experience and a great way to spend some quality time with your child. We meet as a pack (all dens) once a month, and typically have one pack activity a month.  

 Pack meetings are usually held on the third Monday of the month from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the Verdugo Woodlands Dads’ Club.  Pack activities are usually on the weekends and might be a hike, bike ride, service project, campout or our annual Pinewood Derby. Den meetings are the core of Cub Scouting and where most of the fun happens.  Each den makes their own schedule, but usually, have at least one den meeting and one “go-see-it” a month.  

 Den meetings consist of games, service projects and activities that help fulfill badge requirements. Dues for new and returning scouts are $95 for the program year (September -August).  This includes a subscription to Boy’s Life Magazine, all rank and achievement awards, camp and activity fees and a pack t-shirt for new scouts. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, and we look forward to meeting you. Atul Saxena Cub Master (213) 309-1451 atul.saxena@gmail.com
