About Pack 550

Pack 550 welcomes boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grades, or 6 to 10 years of age. We primarly serve Lakeview Elementary, Peter Kirk Elementary and downtown Kirkland however there are no geographical restrictions and welcome youth from all over the Eastside.

Pack 550 does not promote, teach, or discuss any political or religious positions. Instead, we focus on general values of acceptance, compassion, and responsibility - all in a fun environment.

Children entering kindergarten will be in the Lion Den, which is parent-led. First graders are members of a Tiger Den, which is set up as a partnership with an adult partner. Second graders are part of a Wolf Den, and 3rd graders will be in the Bear Den. Wolves and Bears work closely with their family while learning more independence. Webelos (“We’ll Be Loyal Scouts”) is a more advanced program for Cub Scouts in the 4th grade. Fifth grade boys earn the Arrow of Light rank, the highest accomplishment in Cub Scouting.

Current Pack Leadership


The Kiwanis Club of Kirkland chartered Pack 550 in April of 1997. We thank them for their continued support over the years.
