Curious about Cub Scouting?

Cub Scout Pack 827 is Ballard’s local Cub Scout Pack led by Parent Volunteer Leaders welcoming boys and girls in grades K-5 to build friendships, stay active, and have fun in an outdoors-oriented, safe, educational program with youth from local schools such as Adams, Licton Springs, Loyal Heights, North Beach, Salmon Bay, Whittier, and other area schools!

Fun With a Purpose

The best way to find out what you do best is to do it. Throw a football. Catch a fish. Ride a bike. Set up a tent. Build a pinewood derby® car. Shoot a bow and arrow. Cub Scouting offers boys and girls the opportunity to see and learn fun, new things that can’t be found anywhere else. Cub Scout Pack 827 brings these activities and many more to life for your child right here in Ballard!

Cub Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of Ballard K-5 youth and their families. Cub Scout Pack 827 activities run alongside the Seattle Public School calendar. Cub Scout Pack and Den meetings occur on most Monday evenings from September through June (typically 5:30pm to 6:30pm) at Ballard First Lutheran Church (2006 NW 65th St, Seattle, WA 98117). We plan at least one outdoor activity each month (usually on a weekend) with options to participate in more.

Through Cub Scouting, you and your friends can see and learn fun, new things you can’t get
anywhere else.

Cub Scouts are at that magical age where everything is new and possible and, most important, fun. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together. The life lessons learned here not only transform today’s Cub Scouts into tomorrow’s leaders, but also help form a foundation to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles in life. To this end, Cub Scout Pack 827 typically offers over 100 hours of programming and activities in a ‘Scouting Year’!
