Welcome !

Cub Scout Pack 490 has been building scouts in Santa Clarita for over 30 years! Chartered by the Sunrise Rotary Club, we hold monthly Pack Meetings and bi-weekly Den Meetings. We regularly participate in the SCV 4th of July Parade, the River Rally, and Memorial Day flag placement. Pack 490 is active doing service, hikes, family camping and other outings all year. Check us out and find out about how much fun cub scouting can be and how it will help your child grow in character and as a responsible citizen!    Here are some pictures of our pack having fun!

March Pack Meeting

Posted on Mar 16 2020 - 1:23pm

Under the direction of our local BSA Executive, we have been asked to take precautions to keep our scouts and their families protected from illness.
We have been instructed to reduce or cease activities over the next month. Therefore,
the Pack Meeting scheduled for Friday is cancelled. 



Dens are instructed to meet if the families involved feel comfortable doing so in small groups. Since we have completed all requirements for the scouts ranks, the activities they are now working on are elective.


I know that Cub Scouting is a highlight of the month for many of our scouts. 
In lieu of Pack Meeting this month, I'm issuing a challenge for all of our scouts to complete the Cub Scout NOVA Award for "Out of this World." 
There is a special patch scouts earn for this award. It starts off with watching any video on Space and coming up with questions about the topics. The majority of it can be done on your own, and our Pack will provide mentors to sign off on the requirements when completed.


Young Eagles Flight

Posted on Feb 25 2020 - 9:00am

Ever thought about being a pilot???

Come see what it's all about!


The Young Eagles program has dedicated more than 25 years to giving youth ages 8–17 their first free ride in an airplane.

It’s the only program of its kind, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.

 We recommend bringing a small donation to cover the cost of fuel for the pilots volunteering their time and skills.

MUST register through Young Eagles https://youngeaglesday.org/?yereg&event=7Z5XOrC6U
