About Us

Pack 684 is family Pack open to both boys and girls and are consistently a Journey to Excellence and Unit Award winner.  Many families join Pack 684 so they can enjoy scouting with their school or neighborhood friends.  Most of our scouts are from Sangster Elementary School and the surrounding Springfield, VA area in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

We currently have 1 Lion Den, 1 Tiger Den, 1 Wolf Den, 2 Bear Dens, 2 Webelos I Dens, and 2 Arrow of Light Dens. Each of the dens are led by an adult Den Leader (an Akela) and at least one adult Assistant Den Leader (an Akela).  All are trained and current in their required training.  Our Pack sets aggressive training expectations for our parent leaders (Akelas) that meet or exceed goals of the Scouts BSA - our sons and daughters deserve trained leaders.  Most of the dens also have den chiefs, Boy Scouts, who aid the Den Leader and provide role models for the cub scouts.

Our scouts usually have 1 to 2 den meetings a month and a Pack meeting or Pack activity a month.  What differentiates our Pack from others is leadership, adult participation, organization, comradery, fun, and program.  We are funded primarily through dues and popcorn sales, which typically occur in the early fall.  Please contact the cubmaster if your son or daughter would like to participate but dues are problematic.


Pack annual activities typically include:

* Two Pack overnight campouts

* Community service projects (Conservatory Cleanups, Sangster ES, St Andrew's Episcopal Church, and a local food drive)

* Pinewood Derby

* Ski Trip

* Hiking and biking events

* Nationals Baseball Game

* Summer day camps

We schedule summer activities to keep the Pack vibrant during the summer.  Examples of our summer activities include overnighter on the USS Constellation in Baltimore, tour of Camden Yards, Gettysburg living history visit/overnighter, Dolphin Sleepover at the Baltimore Aquarium, and Minor League baseball overnighter.
