About Us

Cub Scouting is more than just an activity. It’s adventure, learning, and discovery around every corner. From STEM, to exploring the outdoors, your son or daughter will be on the path to discovering their very best “future self”- and they’ll have fun doing it!

Cub Scout Pack 82 is part of the Thunderbird District, which serves South Austin for the Capitol Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Pack 82 was first chartered in 1991, and our chartering organization is the Shady Hollow Homeowners Association. Our main recruiting location is Baranoff Elementary, but Pack 82 membership is open to any family, from any school, in any neighborhood.


For the 2018-2019 school year, Pack 82 membership consists of over 100 boys and girls in grades 1st through 5th. We currently have:

  • 1 Tiger Cub den (1st grade)
  • 4 Wolf dens (2nd grade)
  • 3 Bear dens (3rd grade)
  • 2 Webelos dens (4th grade)
  • 2 Arrow of Light (5th grade)

Each den ranges in size from 4 to 8 boys/girls and arrange their own Den meetings according to the schedules of all the Den parents.



We conduct many events throughout the year, including several summertime activities! Some of our regular events: Campouts, USS Lexington Live Aboard, NASA Camp-In, Parades, Pool Party, Blue & Gold Banquet, Pinewood Derby, Space Derby, Raingutter Regatta.


Our monthly Pack Meetings are typically on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30pm at the Shady Hollow Community Center, 3303 Doe Run, from September thru May. We do not hold Pack Meetings during the summer, and in February, we have our Blue & Gold celebration during the month in lieu of a Pack Meeting. Our Pack 82 Committee Meetings are typically on the last Monday of each month at 7pm, parents and interested guests are welcome and encouraged to attend!
