Welcome to scouting and Cub Scout Pack 108!

Under the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) parent umbrella, Cub Scouts is one of five all-gender youth programs: Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA (formerly Boy Scouts, now all gender), Sea Scouts, Venturing, and Exploring.

Benicia Cub Scout Pack 108 (nationally 7108) is sponsored by the Benicia Kiwanis Club and we are operated by the BSA Golden Gate Area Council.  We welcome all Benicia youth (boys and girls) in Kindergarten to 5th Grade.


Benicia Cub Scout Pack 108 provides ready-made opportunities for families to do fun things together—because together—we can all grow into our very best future selves!  Your Scout will be exposed to adventures (Rank Advancements and Electives), outdoor fun (monthly hikes, two annual camping trips, Council Camp Programs, etc.), service (Council Scouting for Food drives, holiday cards for Veterans, craft projects for Seniors, etc), and community (Benicia parades, coastal cleanups, flag ceremonies, etc.).

We operate from May to May each year.

Each school grade level gathers as a Rank/Den.  Den Meetings are maybe once or twice a month, depending on the availability of the volunteer Den Leader (typically a parent trained in BSA programming and Youth Protection).

  • Lion Scouts: Kindergarten
  • Tigers: 1st Grade
  • Wolves: 2nd Grade
  • Bears: 3rd Grade
  • Webelos: 4th Grade
  • Arrow of Light Scouts: 5th grade

As a Pack, all Ranks/Dens gather once a month for a Pack Meeting (typically the first Tuesday of each month) and a Pack Hike (day varies, based on Leaders personal schedule).  Once a year, we host our Pinewood Derby race (scouts make a wooden car to race in January) and our Annual Banquet (our Blue & Gold Ceremony to celebrate the birthday of scouting and to graduate our 5th grade scouts in February).

Annual dues are $200/scout.  This covers your National fees, Council fees, and Pack fees (including your Rank neckerchief and award patches).  Class-A uniforms (button down shirts and standard patches) and Class-B (Pack t-shirt and Rank cap) uniforms are separate fees.
