About Pack 990

                                                  


Cub Scouting is FUN with a PURPOSE! 


The parents and leaders work together towards turning these boys into young men by developing their character, citizenship, personal fitness, and having lots of fun and adventure in the process!

Cub Scout Pack 990 is part of the Bee Cave District, which serves the Scouting needs of the Lake Travis ISD and Eanes ISD areas of the Capitol Area Council (a 15-county area surrounding Austin) of the Boy Scouts of America. Pack 990 was first established in 2003, and our chartering organization is the Knights of Columbus at St. John Neumann Catholic Church. Membership in Pack 990 - as is true for ALL Cub Scout Packs - is open to any family, from any school, in any neighborhood and you do not have to be a church parishioner to be able to join.

Pack 990 currently consists of over 20 boys from kindergarten through grade 5, broken up into Dens based on grade level:

  • Lions (kindergarten)
  • Tiger Cubs (1st grade)
  • Wolf (2nd grade)
  • Bear (3rd grade)
  • 1st-year Webelos (4th grade)
  • 2nd-year Webelos (5th grade)

Each Den ranges in size from 5 to 10 boys, and each group arranges their own Den Meetings according to the schedules of all the Den Parents.

We conduct many events throughout the year, including summertime activities (Cub Scouting is a YEAR-ROUND program)! Some of our regular events include: campouts (we put the OUTING into Scouting!), USS Lexington "live-aboard" adventure, NASA camp-In, museum overnights, pool parties, the annual Blue & Gold Banquet and of course, the famous Pinewood Derby racing event!

Our monthly Pack Meetings are typically the 2nd Monday of each month September through May at 5:45 PM at the Holy Family Center at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, 5455 Bee Cave Road, Austin, Texas 78746. 

We do not hold Pack Meetings during the summer, and in January and February, we have our big annual events (Pinewood Derby and the Blue and Gold Banquet) in lieu of Pack Meetings. Our Pack 990 Leadership Meetings are typically the Wednesday prior to each Pack Meeting - all parents and leaders are invited to attend, just please check our calendar here on the website for the details.
