Welcome to Pack 461!

We are a Cub Scout Pack of about 45 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).

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.

Spring Campout at Washington Monument State Park

To participate in our April 6-7 Spring Pack Overnighter at Washington Monument State Park, a permission slip must be filled out for the scout (attached to this event in Scoutbook). Health Form AB is required for *all* participants including adults and siblings. If you have completed the form within the last year it is still valid.

What do I need to pack?

Scouts can wear their yellow “Class B” shirts rather than their uniforms.

The pack has reserved Youth Group sites 2 & 4. Official check-in time is 3pm, so no tents should be setup before that time. This park is along the Appalachian Trail so plan to do some hiking!

Directions:

Take 270 North towards Frederick. In Frederick, take 70 towards Hagerstown. Take Exit 49, MD Alternate Route 40. Travel westbound (turn left) on Alternate 40 for approximately 9 miles. At the top of South Mountain, turn right on Washington Monument Road. After 1 mile, the road intersects with Zittlestown Road at a four-way stop. Go straight to enter the park.

Amenities:

  • Appalachian Trail Access
  • A small museum commemorates the Civil War Battle of South Mountain
  • A stone monument to George Washington built by the citizens of Boonsboro in 1827
  • Greenbrier State Park is nearby
