The Cub Scout program was officially launched nationally in 1930. It is affiliated with Boy Scouts of America.
The first charter for Pack 170 was granted to Pender in January 1953. The first Cubmaster was Mr. C.E. Peterson followed by Lester Oberg and Don Darling.
The Pack was divided into groups of five or six, each supervised by a den mother.
The Cub Scout Promise is: I promise to do my best, to do my duty to God and my country, to help other people and to obey the Law of the Pack.
The Law of the Pack is: The Cub Scout follows Akela, the Cub Scout helps the Pack go, the Pack helps the Cub Scout grow, the Cub Scout gives goodwill.
The Cub Scout motto is: Do your best.
