About 1148

Cub Scout Pack 1148 is represents the South Riding/Chantilly area in the Goose Creek District of the National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The Pack was started shortly after the opening of Little River Elementary School in September of 1999.

We are a year round pack that has activities throughout the school year and summer. Most of our scouts are involved in a variety of school, sport, and community activities in addition to scouting.

We have a great community of involved scouts and parents which makes it a great time for the kids and parents alike.

How Often We Meet

  • The Pack meets once a Month on the 2nd Thursday of the month.

  • Dens meet about twice a month

The Pack and the Dens are flexible and supportive of all the other activities going on to make sure Scouting is fun and fits into our lives.
