Welcome to Cub Scouts!

Cub Scouts welcomes ALL children from Kindergarten through 5th Grade!  We offer a year-round family program to our youth members.  This educational program is designed to build character, citizenship, and personal fitness.  If you have a love of the outdoors, adventure, and trying new things, Cub Scouts may be for you!

Our meetings are on the second and fourth Mondays of each month from 7:00pm – 8:00pm at the First Baptist Church in Plano.  For more information, please visit one of our weekly meetings or email us at information@pack317plano.org.

Who We Are

We are a great group of Cub Scouts and adult leaders dedicated to serving both boys and girls in our community that are in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Pack 317 is an experienced Pack, established in 1966, and sponsored by the American Legion Leon Burson Post 395 in Plano, IL. The members of our Pack take great pride in serving our community for over 55 years!

Upon nearing the end of the school term, all the Scouts who have completed their adventure trail will ‘cross over’ into the next rank. During the summer, Den meeting work on achievements may be suspended as the Pack will meet monthly at fun activities such as a bowling derby, fishing derby, kite derby, baseball game, Pack swim, etc. that goes toward the Scouts earning their Summertime Award pin.

We are an active Pack, with many activities for our Scouts to choose from.  Most of our meetings take place at the First Baptist Church, 116 N Hale St, Plano, Illinois.
