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.

Interested in joining Scouts?

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. Call 317-697-3700 or click "Contact Us" to the left to request more information on how to join Pack 108, or just come to one of our meetings (see the schedule below). The Pack meetings are for all boys. Tiger Den Meetings are for First Grade, Wolf for Second, Bear for Third, and Webelos for Fourth and Fifth.

Stolen Money Recovery

In October of 2015 the Pack Leadership discovered that a large amount of money was stolen between 2012 and 2015 from the Pack's funds by the former comittee chair. The Marion County Prosecutor's Office filed criminal charges, the individual pleaded guilty and paid restitution in an amount calculated by IMPD and the Prosecutor's office. While there is no way to go back and do all of the fun things we could have done with those funds at the time, the desire of the Pack Committee is to use the funds in a way which benefits the Scouts impacted at the time.

The Pack recovered the funds on April 8th, 2016, and held a Comittee meeting on April 10th to decide how to disperse the funds. The decision is as follows:

Scouts who were registered in the Pack during the 2012/2013, 2013/2014, or 2014/2015 program years and are still active with Pack 108 or a Boy Scout Troop as of April 2016 will receive one "share" for each year of the listed program years they were in the Pack. Each share is worth $100. Cub Scouts may use shares to pay for Day or Adventure camp in 2016, or receive their shares as gift cards to the Scout Shop. The Pack will be contacting these Scouts soon to determine if camp credit or a gift card is desired. Affected Scouts who have moved to Boy Scouts will have funds transferred to their Troop for deposit into their Scout Accounts. Children of the perpetrator of the theft are not eligible for shares. The remainder of the restitution money will be used for other Pack activities with a goal of maximizing the amount of fun that Scouts currently in the Pack experience.
