About Pack 473

Sponsored by St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Jacksonville, Florida, Cub Scout Pack 473 holds meetings twice a month typically on Monday evenings.

The Pack is split into multiple Dens.  Dens are small groups of boys (usually 8-10) who are in the same grade.

  • Lions – Kindergarten
    (parents must attend all meetings)
  • Tigers – 1st Grade
    (parents must attend all meetings)
  • Wolves – 2nd Grade
  • Bears – 3rd Grade
  • Webelos I  – 4th Grade
  • Webelos II – 5th Grade

Our pack has a long history of excellence.  For the last several years, we have earned the highest rating, the gold level, in Scouting’s performance recognition program, Journey to Excellence.

Join us as we continue to serve our youth members in the Jacksonville/Mandarin area!
