We are a Cub Scout Pack of about 50 boys in kindergarten through 5th grade. Cub Scouts do things, go places, and earn awards! The highlights of our 2019-20 program will be an overnight adventure on the Battleship Wisconsin, camping near the beach at Sandy Point, the Pinewood Derby, and Blue & Gold banquet!
We have been meeting at Saint Jane Frances de Chantal Parish in Bethesda, MD since 1954, and most of our boys attend Ashburton Elementary School or St. Jane de Chantal Catholic School. Our Pack is open to any boy in grades K to 5 who can regularly attend meetings at St. Jane de Chantal Catholic School (9525 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD 20814).
During the school year our meetings are held on Wednesday evenings between 6 and 8pm, downstairs in the cafeteria at St. Jane de Chantal Catholic School. Park behind the church and walk up the hill towards the school, go past the awning and down the ramp around the corner to get to the cafeteria.
Returning members can pay their 2020-2021 dues online!
New members can register with Pack 461 online!

Our “fall campout” will be an overnight on the BB-64 USS Wisconsin. You will sleep on the same “racks” used by the men and women who served on this ship. One of the last and largest battleships built during WWII, the Wisconsin was used in combat as recently as the 1991 Gulf War.
This is about 4 hours away, so we suggest carpooling or extending the weekend of family fun by heading down Friday night.
Annual Dues must be paid and we need current Health Forms for all people coming, including adults. You can use this fillable PDF. Pre-filled Permission Slips for your scout are available inside the Calendar Item on Scoutbook, or get a blank one here. We’ll have paper copies as well. If you last filled out the forms for the spring campout they are still valid.
The price per person is $70 (Pay Online). Payment will be due at the Pack Meeting on Wednesday, November 7th. Paying for you and your scouts will hold your place on the ship, currently limited to 75 people. The fee includes a hot breakfast, and admission to the ship and Nauticus museum on Saturday and Sunday.
Pack 461 stays active over the summer! While we take a break from Den and Pack meetings, we enjoy the warm weather while doing some fun activities.
Scouts who attend a Pack event in June, July, and August will receive the National Summertime Award pin (pictured to the right) for their rank!
