About Us

Cub Scout Pack 183 is located in Barrington, IL.  Our Pack is part of the Trailblazer District. Salem United Methodist Church is our chartered organization.

Boys and girls in grades kindergarten through fifth grade are welcome to join!  Attend one of our pack meetings or email us for more information.

Our pack meetings are held once a month at Grove Avenue School.  Fun activities are planned like rocket launches or STEM projects.  The scouts also receive achievement patches, awards and other recognition.

The Pack is organized into Dens.  Each Den has scouts from the same grade level.  The Dens meet throughout the month.  The scouts work together building relationships with each other and completing required achievements to advance to the next rank.

Our Pack is active year-round!  Fun activities are planned like family camping trips, museum overnights, fishing derbies and attending minor-league baseball games.  Our dens plan outings like hikes at local parks, police & fire department tours when they completing certain achievements.

Our scouts actively provide service to our community and chartered organization.   In the fall, we rake leaves for our chartered organization.  We’ve attended the Veteran’s Day Community Meal leading the opening flag ceremony and visiting with veterans.  During the holiday season, we make holiday cards and sing Christmas carols for residents at local assisted living centers.  In the spring,  we’ve assisted conservation groups with work day projects.  Our Pack participates in the Memorial Day parade, flag laying and 4th of July parade.
