Welcome to Pack 461!

We are a Cub Scout Pack of about 25 boys in kindergarten through 5th grade. Cub Scouts do things, go places, and earn awards!

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 our meetings in the cafeteria  at St. Jane de Chantal Catholic School (9525 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD 20814).

During the school year our meetings are typically held on the first and 3rd Wednesday evenings between 6.30pm and 7.30pm. Please come and visit us! 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.

Please visit our Cub Scout Pack 461 Store to register with our BSA Pack for School Year 2023 – 2024
