Welcome to The Pack in the Park!

The Pack in the Park is Cub Scout Pack 688 based in the Grant Park neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia.  Pack 688 is an inclusive community that welcomes boys and girls from kindergarten to fifth grade to enjoy and participate in the fun activities and opportunities that Scouting offers to scouts and their families.  Our scouts come together from across the neighborhoods and schools in southeast Atlanta.  The Pack in the Park is chartered with the historic St. Paul United Methodist Church in Grant Park where most of our meetings are held.  Please feel free to view, explore, and discover our Scouting world!
