Cub Scout Pack 8 is located in the Madison – Monrovia area of North Alabama. The pack was started in 1974 and is sponsored by the Madison Optimist Club. Pack 8 is in the Talakto District, in the Greater Alabama Council.

Cub Scouts are organized by grade or age into Dens. Each den works together under the leadership of a Den Leader to earn their Ranks. The ranks in Cub Scouts are:

  • Lion (Kindergarten or age 6)
  • Tiger (1st Grade or age 7)
  • Wolf (2nd Grade or age 8)
  • Bear (3rd Grade or age 9)
  • Webelos (4th Grade or age 10)
  • Arrow of Light (5th Grade or age 11)

Pack 8 is proud to include girls in our Pack! According to BSA regulations, girls and boys must be in single-gender dens, so we have one multi-rank den.
