BERKELEY PACK 30

We are an inclusive, parent-volunteer-run cub scout program, serving our youth and upholding our community values since the 1950s.

Scouting gives our youth a safe venue to try new things and build self-confidence.

Scouting encourages our youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for serving others in their community

COVID-19 Response: We are committed to providing a healthy, inclusive and safe space for our families and scouts during all scouting events. Read more.

Pack 30 Facts

Open To Children Of All Genders

Pack 30 welcomes children of all genders from ages 5 (as of Sept 30) to 10 (levels K/TK through 5th Grade) in ranks according to their age (Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Webelos and Arrow-of-Light, respectively.)

Chartered By Epworth

Every Cub Scout pack has a chartered organization that sponsors and supports the pack. Pack 30 is chartered by Epworth United Methodist, a welcoming and inclusive church in Berkeley. Organizationally, we are part of the Herms District in the Golden Gate Area Council.

Meetings

When:

Mondays 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Pack meetings are generally held the third Monday of each month, for all scouts in the pack.

Den meetings are typically held during the first week of the month, for scouts of the same age group and there is flexibility in this date to accommodate availability of the families in that den.

There will also be weekend activities, almost on a monthly basis (such as hikes, campouts, service projects, pinewood derby, potluck, museum visits etc)

Where:

Coming out of COVID Zoom meetings, we are starting to do our pack meetings at public parks (e.g. Live Oak Park, King School Park, or John Hinkel Park for example)

Den meetings have been at people's backyards or at a nearby public park depending on the Den families' convenience

Come winter when it gets dark, we'll start meeting at Epworth United Methodist Church, who have graciously given us space for our pack/den meetings.

Note: Pack and den leaders will make sure to give ample heads-up on the exact location prior to the pack/den meetings.
