Our pack has provided the best of times for countless families for decades. Some families (with multiple boys) have been associated with the pack for over 15 years. Their dedication and commitment shines as a prime example of great and very satisfying times and experiences. Whether we're hiking, camping or simply enjoying a potluck in the local park, we at Pack 310 truly enjoy sharing the time spent with each other. And that's hard to come by!

We help our local community through service projects, and we do lots of exciting activities together throughout the year, including: Camping, Halloween party, Thanksgiving potluck, marching in the Montrose Holiday Parade, Pinewood Derby, Blue & Gold Banquet, Pack hikes, summer activities, and lots more!   

Cub Scout Pack 310 serves La Crescenta and the Tujunga Valley.

July 4 Event- Message from Verdugo Hills Council

Hello Pack 310,
We are sharing this information with our families:
This Friday July 4th, before you go enjoy the red, white and blue of the fourth, join at the Verdugo Hills Council Office as we rally in support of Roy Wiegand. Roy, a scouter from VHC, is running to raise money for the children's cancer nonprofit Michael Hoefflin Foundation.  He is also running in honor of our Scout, 12 year old Christopher Wilke who recently passed away. 
We are gathering at the VHC office to show our support for a great man, doing a great thing, Roy will be running from Angels Stadium to the Santa Clarita Valley. We expect him at the VHC Office some time between 11:00 and 1:00

I know I have spread the word to several scoutmasters and I hope we can have a big scouting turn out for Roy and Christopher.  We need Scouts to wave flags and encourage Roy.  Glendale and Pasadena fire and police will be joining in, everyone is encouraged to ride or run with Roy for part of the trip.

We will have burgers and dogs while we gather and wait to cheer Roy on!  We will also be collecting donations for MHF.  Roy is hoping to raise at least $48,000.00 on this trip.

So I am calling all families, friends, Scouters, Scouts, everyone to come join us starting at 11:00 am July 4th at the office. 

Start your 4th of July celebration with this rally and then on to your other activities.
Please come in uniform!

See you on Friday!

Verdugo Hills Council
1325 Grandview

Thank you Roy!
Let's all remember Christopher Wilke.

Yours in Scouting,

David Potter
