Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 59 website!
We are Cub Scout Pack 59 located in Palatine, IL and we offer a full Scouting Program experience. This website was developed with you in mind. Everything you need to know about the Cub Scouts and/or who to contact if interested, is at your fingertips. So, go ahead and explore and if you have any questions, just click on the lettering in blue and an Adult Leader will be in touch!
Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things.
Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy's sense of belonging.
Pack 59 is a believer in utilizing technology to ensure that we have a communicative and fun environment. Each month a Newsletter goes out via email prior to the Pack Nights to inform you of upcoming events, updates and other exciting information! Of course, you will always see each other at the Den meetings and can call your Den Leader anytime!

Providing a Compass for Life
For over 100 years, Scouting programs have instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, these values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to
- Try new things.
- Provide service to others.
- Build self-confidence.
- Reinforce ethical standards.
While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.
Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. It is communicated to them that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.
