Welcome to Pack 1855!

Founded in 1993, Cub Scout Pack 1855 is part of the Golden Empire Council, El Dorado District.

Cub Scouts is a great way to introduce your son (kindergarten through 5th grade) into Scouting before they enter into Boy Scouts at age 11. By participating in many fun activities throughout the year, boys learn citizenship, leadership, and friendship with boys in their age group. 

Parental involvement in Cub Scouts is both encouraged and expected. This involvement varies from active participation in Pack/Den events up to and including becoming a group leader.

If you are interested in getting your son involved in Pack 1855, either fill out the form on the Contact Us page or contact our Cubmaster, Mark Karlstad.

Pack Summertime Event--Family Bowling

We are gearing up for summer and have our first summer event planned for Saturday, June 16th--bowling at Strikes Unlimited in Rocklin!  The cost is $8/person and you can use your scout account funds to pay for your family.  We are meeting at 10:15 and the event runs until 12:30.  If you make all three summertime events, your scout will qualify for his Summertime Activity Award!  So put away those flip flops and dust off your bowling shoes--see you all there!

Please Join Us for Graduation Camp May 18-20!

Pack 1855's Graduation Camp is a fun weekend of Cub-friendly camping at the Golden Empire Council's NorCal Adventure Area in Dobbins, CA, on May 18-20.  This is a car camping event, so there's no need to worry about carrying heavy packs--you can park right next to your tent.  The campout is 2 nights (Friday and Saturday), but families are welcome to join us for as much or as little time as they can spare.

Is Your Family's Contact Info Correct?

Hi everyone. Recently we discovered some parents were inadvertently no longer receiving emails from our pack. We believe this is fixed now, however, if you or someone you know is not getting weekly e-blasts or other pack related emails, or you need any other website related help such as your login username or help turning off e-blasts or other emails, please feel free to reach out to webmaster@pack1855.org
