Welcome to Pack 491

Albuquerque, NM

Cub Scouts serving the neighborhoods of Dennis Chavez, Hubert Humphrey, and North Star Elementary Schools.


Why Cub Scouts?

There’s no shortage of activities for your kids to engage in — believe us, we know. Extracurriculars like sports and academic clubs offer huge benefits to your child as they navigate their crucial elementary school years. But Scouting offers many of those benefits and more, including a few things they can’t experience anywhere else.

Cub Scouts is the perfect introduction to Scouting, and your kids can join at any elementary age, K-5. The program is open to boys and girls, and offers unique opportunities centered around:

Teamwork // Citizenship // Respect and Integrity // Health and Fitness // Physical and Online Safety // Courage // Perseverance // FUN

What We Do


Pinewood Derby

Scouts build their very own gravity powered car from the official BSA Pinewood Derby Kit, and race against each other for a chance at racing glory.

Community Engagement

Fun and Games

Whether it’s hiking, sports, or NERF madness, there’s always something exciting on the horizon.
