Cub Scout Pack 108

Beech Grove, Indiana

Cub Scout Pack 108 is chartered by American Legion Post 276 in Beech Grove. Pack 108 draws primarily from within the Beech Grove city limits, although a few scouts are from outside this area. We serve boys entering first through fifth grade.

Pack 108 is always looking for new boys who want to experience the adventure and camaraderie that Scouting has to offer. While we focus or recruiting efforts at the beginning of the school year, boys can join at any time.
