Those who are interested in learning more about Scouting are welcome to attend a meeting. We meet every Monday evening at 6:30 PM at King of Glory Lutheran Church located at 2085 East Southern Avenue in Tempe.
The Pack also enjoys an outing every month, generally on Saturdays, to learn more about history, community and wilderness. As Cub Scouting is a family centered program, the entire family is invited to every meeting and outing. Below are some of the fun outings from the past few years.
