Getting Started

When is a good time to get started?

Like many Cub Scout Packs, we follow the school year.  You can become a scout at anytime. Just contact our Cubmaster or the Den Leader in your age group - or, just show up at one of our meetings.

If you have an interest in learning more about our Pack, if you have questions, or if you are ready to get started, please click here and fill out our website form.  It only takes a minute and we will contact you shortly.
  

When do we meet?

Pack Meetings are normally held once per month and are a chance for the dens to get together in the same place.  Because our Pack is so successful we sometimes split the Pack meeting into two locations. Check the Pack calendar to see where we are meeting next. The meeting is normally led by the Cubmaster and/or Assistant Cubmaster. You are welcome to stop by if you are considering joining the pack.  We gear the meeting towards the kids and the goal is to have fun and recognize them for their recent accomplishments (with awards, pins, loops, badges, and whatever else we dream up).

Den Meetings (when just one age group meets - with the Den Leader) are normally held once a month and when there are specific outings.

To verify meeting times, you can check the calendar here.



What is the Cost of Joining?

First - don't let the cost scare you off.  It's not that expensive and our Pack is able to assist if you need help.  The person to see about assistance is the Cubmaster. This will be kept between you and him/her but you can tend to that later.

Second - The annual fee for the 2018 - 2019 year is $175.00 which covers most of the activities. (We don't ask the scouts to sell popcorn or do any other fundraising during the year.) The appropriate handbook is under $10.00.  A new uniform runs around $30.00 (depends) but the shirt is good for several years, so uniform costs do go down as you move through the ranks.

We are not worried about the fees being paid up front.  We can work with you.  Scouting is actually quite reasonable considering all that your child will be doing throughout the year.  Don't let the cost get in the way of your decision.
