Welcome to the Pack 98 Web Site!

It’s yours to enjoy so start exploring!

Pack 98 is dedicated to a lively Cub Scout experience with activities that capture the interest of boys yet are fun for the entire family. Our Cub Scouts learn essential skills and enjoyment of outdoor activities, community involvement, personal safety, sports, and the environment. Pack 98 is a group of about 60 Scouts and their families.  Chartered by the First United Methodist Church we work with boys from several Fort Collins area schools. We meet at the church on Thursdays at 7 PM.
