Do Your Best. Have Fun Doing It.

Welcome to Pack 903 located in Evanston, IL. We've been proudly serving youth for nearly 100 years! We are a group for boys and girls in kindergarten through 5th grade. We believe that Scouting should be available to all kids regardless of income, background, or ability. The four aims of Cub Scouting are:

  • Character Development

  • Citizenship Training

  • Personal Fitness

  • Leadership Development

Trained adult leaders help fulfill those aims through 7 methods: Living the Ideals, Belonging to a Den, Using Advancement, Involving Family and Home, Participating in Activities, Serving Home and Neighborhood and Wearing the Uniform.

Pack 903 is currently meeting outdoors or virtually for Pack and Den events around Evanston. We typically meet 2 - 3 times a month, with face coverings and attendee limits required for all in-person gatherings, in accordance with public health recommendations. When COVID-19 is behind us, we expect to return to Orrington Elementary for in-person Pack and Den meetings. We'd love to have you! Learn more about our Dens here. We are grateful to Orrington and the Orrington PTA for supporting our young Scouts.

Our Chartered Sponsor is American Legion Post 42. According to their website, "The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans." On behalf of all our Scouts and Scouting families, we thank American Legion Post 42 for their valuable support, community service and leadership.
