Organization & Leadership

Cub Scouts has its own particular organization structure and terminology with Packs, Dens, Chartered Organizations, and more.  Learn about How Cub Scouting is Organized, and then meet the team that works together to run Pack 263.


Our Scouting unit is Pack 263, which includes all of our scouts, leaders, and volunteers. The Cubmaster leads the pack meetings and provides support to many of the other leaders.

Our pack is divided into multiple Dens, which are typically broken up by grade level and gender.  Each den has one or more Den Leaders, often a parent, that plans and leads the activities of the den.

Depending on fluctuations in enrollment, we will sometimes combine dens to ensure all scouts get the most out of the program.  Den Leaders will then work to plan activities that satisfy each of the scouts' respective rank requirements.

Pack Committee

The Pack Committee is made of up of parents and leaders that handle administrative and support tasks of the pack.  The Pack Committee oversees the finances of the pack, annual rechartering, and recruitment of new leaders. It is led by the Pack Committee Chair, who leads committee meetings, and ensures a quality Scouting program.

Chartered Organization

Every Scouting unit has a Chartered Organization that partners with Boy Scouts of America to deliver the Scouting program.  Our chartered organization is Community United Methodist Church in Half Moon Bay.  They believe in the value of Scouting and have been a fantastic sponsor of the pack for many years.
