Why Cub Scouting?

Cub Scouts
Since its beginning, the Cub Scout program has been a fun and educational experience concerned with values. Besides providing a positive place where boys can enjoy safe, wholesome activities, Cub Scouting focuses on building character, improving physical fitness, teaching practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service. Read more on the Boy Scouts of America website:

The emphasis of Cub Scouting (1st - 5th grades) is to have fun and learn at the same time. A Cub Scout learns the basics of the Scouting method in regular den and pack meetings. These meetings include activities geared toward teaching boys new skills and introducing them to new experiences. Activities like hiking, climbing, archery, swimming, fishing, camping, BB guns, and playing games with friends.

About Pack 345

Cub Scout Pack 345, Brighton, MI has been chartered by the Brighton Masonic Lodge since 1989. We strive to provide a positive scouting experience for our boys.

Pack meetings are usually held at 7:00 pm, on the last Tuesday of each month during the school year. We meet at Hawkins Elementary School. Den meetings are held twice per month and scheduled by each individual den.

Our Pack is involved in exciting events like pinewood derby, overnight and day camps, sledding, bon fires, and sporting events. We also plan many community service projects, volunteer at local charities and participate in local parades/events.

We're all about fun!

In addition to monthly Pack meetings and Den meetings, we hold our Raingutter Regatta each December and a Pinewood Derby race each March. We plan several additional events for the scouts over the course of the year. These events while not required, are additional opportunities for the scouts to get together with friends, have some fun and grow. They include overnight trips, day outings and community service activities. Past events: USS Silversides submarine overnight, Whalers hockey games, Toledo Mud Hens overnight, Binder Park Zoo, Howell Nature Center, Detroit Science Center, local race shop tours, and Hartland pool swim night.

Our Community service activities include Gleaners food bank, Hawkins elementary school and VFW hall clean-ups, and helping with various other local organizations.

We also participate in the Brighton Memorial Day and Fourth of July parades.
