Welcome to Pack 428

Pack 428 of Kirkland, WA, has been around for many years and serves the Rose Hill, Ben Rush and Ben Franklin Elementary Schools and surrounding area.  We are a chartered member of the BSA, and are part of the Sammamish Trails District within the Chief Seattle Council.

Cub Scout packs consist of several dens, made up of boys and girls from kindergarten through 5th grade. Each den is gender-specific and usually contains just one grade level, though dens can be combined if needed. Pack 428 currently has seven dens – one boy den for each grade level and one multi-grade girl den. Each month there is usually a pack meeting, a den meeting, a pack outing and possibly a den outing. Pack meetings include all the scouts in the pack, with parents and siblings welcome. Den meetings are smaller; usually just the scout and his or her parent attend.

Our pack meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the gym/cafeteria at Ben Rush Elementary, 6101 152nd Ave NE, WA (map). For specific meeting dates and times see “Upcoming Events” below or visit our Pack Meetings page.

All boys and girls of elementary school age, K through 5th, are welcome to join our pack, for more info please visit our Join page.

Our pack is in “summer mode” right now. We enjoyed swimming at the Strattonwood pool, and some of our members marched in Kirkland’s 4th of July parade. Several of our scouts will be attending day camp or residence camp this summer as well. If other events get planned, you will see them posted here, so check back occasionally. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you in September!
