Welcome to Pack 531.
We are an active family-oriented Pack chartered by Adams Traditional Academy. Our Dens meet every Monday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. during the school year. Our monthly "Pack Meeting" is usually the 4th Monday of every month.

(closest cross streets I-17 & Pinnacle Peak Rd)
Parents are awesome, right?! Parents help provide den and pack leadership to create a quality and exciting program. Parents also help and assist with pack/den activities throughout the year. Pack 531 parents are the best!
Our Pack has a Pack Camping trip at the beginning and at the end of the school year. The Fall Campout focuses on developing scout skills while the Spring/Summer Campout focuses on celebrating successes with a Promotion/Crossover ceremony and participating in outdoor activities.
Our Webelos/Arrow-of-Light Dens are encouraged to also have their own Den campouts throughout the year as well as meet and engage with local Boy Scout Troops to prepare for the transition to Boy Scouting.
We follow BSA guidelines and require our leaders/volunteers to complete Youth Protection Training, we follow two-deep leadership requirements and participate in den specific training. A BALOO trained leader must be present at all campouts. Our goal is to always provide a safe and secure environment for the Scouts.
We ask all Scouts and Parents to participate and support our two annual fundraising events. The main fundraiser is the Scout’s Chocolate Candy Bars Sale in November and December. The second fundraiser is the Camp Cards in January/February. These events provide funds for our awards, activities and Pack expenses. We do very limited fundraising as needed and hope to teach the boys how to present themselves when speaking in public (parents too!).
