Welcome Scouts & Akelas

Welcome to the Pack517.org website. Pack 517 is sponsored by Taft Elementary School PTO in Ashland, Ohio.

Cub Scouting is a year-round family program designed for boys who are about 7 to 10 years old. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the purposes of Cub Scouting.

Cub Scouts do fun things with other kids! They get to wear a cool uniform, go places, and see things. They play all kinds of sports and build things, like race cars and bird houses. Want to learn a secret code? Want to learn about wild animals? Go Cub Scouting!

As a Cub Scout, you do your best and you help others. You learn the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack. You also learn what they mean.

The Cub Scout Promise

I promise to do my best

To do my duty to God and my country,

To help other people, and

To obey the Law of the Pack.
