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.

In-person meetings are on hold for now. But, we are still scouting. We are doing what scouts do best – enjoying the outdoors! Each month we will have a themed packet available for our scouts with activity ideas to do with your family or others in your “pod.” We encourage you to include your non-scout neighbors! You can work towards specific awards, or just enjoy the activities without completing specific requirements.

More Information on Cub Scouts and Pack 428
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 nine dens – one boy den for each grade level and three dual-grade girl dens. 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 typically 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.

We have no upcoming events at this time. We hope to be able to get together in person again soon!
