Joining Our Pack


Welcome to Pack 391's Joining Our Pack Page.
Cub Scouts are for boys and girls, Kindergarten through fifth grade.

Our pack's central geographical area is Rancho San Diego, which covers the eastern parts of the cities of La Mesa and El Cajon, and the unincorporated areas of El Cajon, La Mesa, Jamul and Spring Valley.

We are allowed to actively recruit students from these three elementary schools:
Vista Grande
Rancho San Diego
Jamacha
We are not limited to only having scouts from these schools.  While we do not actively recruit from other schools, you may join our pack no matter where you live or which school your child attends.  Children from these other elementary/primary schools have joined our pack:
Anza, Avocado, Chase, Christian, Dehesa, Fuerte, Jamul, Meridian, & W.D. Hall

Send an email to the registration coordinator by clicking on the "Contact Our Pack" button at the top of this page to let us know you are thinking about joining.  We will get back to you and make arrangements for you to join us.
