Welcome to the #1 Cub Scout Pack in the Country!

Please join us for our Pack meeting on November 20, 2014 at 7 pm, at Castaic Elementary School MPR
Hope to see you there!

If you are part of our Pack, we hope that this site will be a resource to help you keep track of upcoming events.  If you are not part of our Pack, we hope that this site will provide useful information and guidance.

Pack 583 is in Castaic, California which is located about 30 miles north of Los Angeles and is chartered by the SCV-Newhall Optimist Club.  Pack 583 in the Bill Hart District has been in existence since 1988.



This Pack is committed to helping young boys (1st – 5th grade) grow in character and leadership skills while they have a blast doing it!  Our pack is 40 boys strong with an outstanding volunteer leadership staff of approximately 15 men and women.  Together, with a group of very supportive parents, we are a strong and vital part of our growing community.


Pack 583 participates in many events that are fun and educational for the boys including hiking, camping, Pinewood Derby races, Bottle Rocket Launches and many field trips to various local places of interest.


Being a Cub Scout means making contributions not only to your family and to your Pack, but also to the community.  Our Pack is involved in service to the community in a variety of ways.  We participate in a program called Scouting for Food wherein the boys collect canned goods from families in their community and donate them to those in need.  Other community activities include helping to keep our local lake, Castaic Lake, clean by volunteering our time to remove trash and debris and collecting recyclables to help raise funds for a fellow Cub Scout who is suffering from leukemia.  Cub Scouts is an excellent organization that teaches the boys early the importance of giving back.  (Click here for a Power Point Presentation on Cub Scouting.)


Our Pack meets monthly in the MPR at Castaic Elementary school and the individual dens within the Pack meet weekly or bi-weekly during the month.


If you would like to learn more about Pack 583 or if you would like to obtain information about joining Cub Scouts, we would love to talk to you and answer any questions you may have.  Pack 583 is always looking for more members to join us on the scouting journey!  Please contact us via this site by emailing our Committee Chair at and we will get back to you quickly.

Thank you for stopping by.  We hope you enjoy looking around the site!
