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.
