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!
