Welcome to Potomac Pack 1280!

Cub Scout Pack 1280 is located in Potomac, MD. As a co-ed organization, we welcome any K-5 youth in the area. Currently, the pack has scouts from Saint Raphael School (our chartering organization) as well as Beall ES, Cold Spring ES, Ritchie Park ES, and Stone Mill ES. We 'do our best' to be a pack boys, girls, and parents are proud to be a part of!

To learn more about Cub Scouts in general, the Boy Scouts of America have put together a lot of great information for parents here. If video is more your style, take a look at this. If you'd like to have a comprehensive brochure, a PDF is available here. There is also more information in the 'About Us' section here.

If you'd like to ask a question about Pack 1280, if you'd like to visit our monthly 'Pack Meeting' or a smaller, grade-specific 'Den Meeting', of if you'd like to sign up, feel free to send us a note via the 'contact us' form here.

We also invite you to like and follow our Facebook page!

Pinewood Derby Goes Virtual!

Posted on Mar 12 2020 - 10:35pm


We are still planning a Pinewood Derby this weekend but it will be conducted audience-less and we will live stream the race via Youtube (if all goes as planned). That means please DO NOT turnout for the race on Saturday - NCAC is strongly advising Scout Units against in-person events until May and we are honoring that. We recognize that this is not ideal but Unit Leaders felt like scouts deserved to see their cars in action and we were not sure there would be an opportunity to reschedule this as an in-person event. Side-note, I am proud and inspired by our creative Unit leadership and I expect this could turn out to be an innovative new model for how to keep a degree of scouting going under such difficult circumstances !!
