What is Cub Scouting?
Cub Scouting is a year-round program uniquely designed to meet the needs of young boys and their parents. The program offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide boys through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Through positive peer group interaction and parental guidance, boys also learn honesty, bravery, and respect. Family involvement is an essential part of Cub Scouting and parents are encouraged to play an active role in the program. Through interaction between parents, leaders, and friends, boys learn citizenship, compassion, and courage. This family-and community-centered approach to learning means that Cub Scouting is truly time well spent.

Pack 348
Cub Scout Pack 348 is a group of kindergarten through fifth grade scouts and their parents living in the area of Eden Lake Elementary School, Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Our chartered organization is Pax Christi Catholic Community, Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

How often do we meet?
Scouts in Pack 348 typically meet 2-3 times per month and most of our events are on Mondays.
Pack meetings (for all scouts in Pack 348) are held once per month at Pax Christi Catholic Church.
Den meetings (smaller groups of scouts by grade) get together 1 or 2 times per month, depending on the den.
There is also a Parent/Leader meeting 1 monday per month and all parents are encouraged to attend without their scout.  These meetings are where all the planning takes place.

What do scouts do?
Scouting is fun with a purpose!  All activities are designed to be both educational and fun.  When your son joins Cub Scouts he will begin learning new skills and experiencing new adventures.  As a parent you?ll participate in the activities with your son, giving you the opportunity to share his experiences. 

Some of the best things about Cub Scouting are the activities you get to do: camping, hiking, racing model cars, going on field trips, or doing projects that help your hometown and the people who live there. Cub Scouting means ?doing.?

While they?re having fun, scouts build character, learn leadership skills, understand citizenship and develop personal fitness, while learning to do his best
