Pack 270 is based out of Thurmont, Maryland and has won pack of the year for both 2018 and 2019! All parent leaders are Youth Protection Trained and follow the 2-deep leadership principle, maintaining safety as our number one priority.


The mission of scouting is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. To put this into action, scouting activities focus on ten areas: Character Development, Respectful Relationships, Spiritual Growth, Personal Achievement, Good Citizenship, Friendly Service, Sportsmanship, Fitness, and Adventure, Family Understanding, and Preparation for Scouts BSA.


The den—a group of scouts from the same grade—is where Cub Scouting starts. Cub Scouts make new friends, play purposeful games, and learn new things at den meetings. During the school year, dens usually meet two times a month, and gather monthly for a pack meeting. Below are a list of examples of Pack 270 Activities:

  • Family Camp Outs
