Welcome to Potomac Pack 1280!

Serving Saint Raphael School, Cold Spring ES and Ritchie Park ES and surrounding communities, we 'do our best' to be a pack boys 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.
