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 All Children

Pack 30 welcomes children of all genders who are in Kindergarten through 5th grade (generally ages 5 to 10). Scouts meet in Dens according to their age and rank being worked on (Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Webelos, and Arrow-of-Light, respectively.) Youth entering Kindergarten next fall are welcome to attend our spring meetings to meet the Pack before joining.

Lions Club Charter

Every pack has a chartered organization that sponsors and supports the pack. Pack 30, part of the Herms District in the Golden Gate Area Council, is chartered by Berkeley Lions Club.



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)


Coming out of COVID Zoom meetings last year, we managed to do our pack meetings at public parks (e.g. Live Oak Park, 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

During 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.
