Cub Scout Pack 976
(Vienna, Virginia)
ScoutLander Contact Our Pack Member Login


Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 976 - Vienna, Virginia

Citizenship. Character. Personal Fitness. Leadership. STEM.

Please sign up your child for Cub Scouts!  Pack 976, which is chartered by Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish (OLGC), is inviting boys and girls in kindergarten through 5th grade to join the Cub Scouts.

When you join Cub Scouting, you're signing them up for much more than an after-school activity. Whether it's camping or catching a fish for the first time, your child will take part in activities that are fun, but that also build character, citizenship, and personal fitness, and start them on a path to success. To learn more about Scouting, visit BEASCOUT.ORG, watch this video, and check out this information pamphlet for new families. 

Pack 976 welcomes all children regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or creed. Thank you for your interest in Scouting!

Please contact us with any questions at

All new and returning scouts must register and sign up with our Pack. Please find registration details below.

Our principal fundraising program is the Trail's End Popcorn program, which supports both our local Council and our individual Pack. 
Please visit our Popcorn Sales Online Storefront to purchase delicious popcorn and support Scouting. Thank you!

Fresh Roasted Coffee for your Favorite Cause Our secondary fundraising program is the GivingBean program, which supports our individual Pack. Please visit our
