Cub Scouting is the part of the Boy Scouts of America that is designed for boys in first through fifth grade. Most of the boys in the Petaluma California Cub Scout Pack 84 are from one of four schools: La Tercera, Miwok, Old Adobe, and Sonoma Mountain. We also have boys from other schools such as Penngrove, St. Vincent, and others. Organizationally, Pack 84 is part of the Miwok District (Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Cotati, Two Rock, and Tomales Bay), which is part of the Redwood Empire Council (Petaluma north to the Oregon Border).
Pack 84 is chartered by the 7-11 Lions Club of Petaluma.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.

What We've Achieved
Since 1930, the Boy Scouts of America has helped boys of cub scouts age. Parents, leaders, and organizations work together to achieve the 10 purposes of Cub Scouting:
Sportsmanship & Fitness
Fun & Adventure
Preparation for Boy Scouts
The Cub Scouts of America colors are blue and gold. They have special meaning, which will help boys see beyond the fun of Cub Scouting to its ultimate goals. The blue stands for truth and spirituality, steadfast loyalty, and the sky above. The gold stands for warm sunlight, good cheer and happiness.
