About Pack 360

Pack 360 is a thriving Cub Scout Pack in La Crescenta, CA. We are a part of the Verdugo Hills Council - Foothill District, sponsored by American Legion Post 288, and hosted by Dunsmore Elementary School. We are home to more than 70 Scouting families from the 1st through 5th grades. We are based at Dunsmore Elementary School, but serve the entire Crescenta Valley. 

We love to camp and take advantage of our Southern California weather. We love and respect the environment, and share a passion for its beauty and conservation. We embrace the diversity of our community. Most importantly, we love to do things together, make new friends, and have a great time together in a safe, positive, and caring peer environment. In addition to these, within Pack 360, we also emphasize leadership skills, self-confidence, and respect for others.


We are committed to Scouting and believe that Scouting is a valuable program for youth, with admirable benefits for the scout, his family, his local community, our nation and the world. We believe the Scout Oath and the Scout Law are excellent guiding principles for everyone. More importantly, we believe that the Scout Oath and the Scout Law are entirely incompatible with the practice of excluding any individual based solely upon innate personal characteristics, and that to do so violates the fundamental spirit and principles expressed or implied in the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. We believe that Scout leaders have a solemn responsibility to help youth develop clear ethical values and to live those values in order to be an example of friendliness, tolerance, inclusiveness and respect for diversity. Conversely, we strongly believe that modeling discrimination against others on the basis of their personal characteristics is fundamentally incompatible with the basic and traditional values and principles of Scouting, and poisonous to all involved in scouts. Discrimination, in any form, goes against the values our movement teaches us and has no place in Scouting’s future. We cannot in good conscience insist our scouts respect the beliefs of others, with it not applying to everyone. We cannot instill the sacred vow of Loyalty if that loyalty can be revoked upon a scouts 18th birthday.
We believe strongly in the Scout oath and the Scout law and we will do our best to instill and uphold it!

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”  ~~~Nelson Mandela
