Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 976 - Vienna, Virginia

Citizenship. Character. Personal Fitness. Leadership. STEM.

Please sign up your child for Cub Scouts!  Pack 976, which is chartered by Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish (OLGC), is inviting boys and girls in kindergarten through 5th grade to join the Cub Scouts.

When you join Cub Scouting, you're signing them up for much more than an after-school activity. Whether it's camping or catching a fish for the first time, your child will take part in activities that are fun, but that also build character, citizenship, and personal fitness, and start them on a path to success. To learn more about Scouting visit BEASCOUT.ORG.

Pack 976 welcomes all children regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or creed. Thank you for your interest in Scouting!

All new and returning scouts must register and sign up with our Pack. Please find registration details below.
