A warm welcome to Parents of Cub Scouts in Pack 878!

Akela - Ahwatukee Pack 878

As a parent, all levels of Cub Scouts requires you to be actively involved in your boys cub scouting experience. In Scouting, you are known as Akela and you are responsible for helping your son complete requirements, achievements and signing their book.

You can become more involved in Cub Scouting by helping at Den meetings, becoming an assistant Den Leader, helping with Pack activities or even running your own Den.

Cub Scouts offers many benefits for your son, please visit the Boy Scouts of America What is Cub Scouting? to find out more about this amazing program.

There are thousands of resources available to Parents to help their cub scout get the most out of scouting. A great start is to download the Parent Information Guide.
