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 Lake 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. Pack 428 is piloting the new family den program, which means our dens are not gender-specific. Dens usually contain just one grade level, though dens can be combined if needed. 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 guardian 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.
