Scouting 101

Getting Started


When is a good time to get started?
Like most Cub Scout Packs, we go year-round. 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 all of our scouts (1st-5th grade) get together in the same place. The meeting is normally led by the Cubmaster. Keep an eye on the calendar for the date. 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 twice a month and when there are specific outings.

To verify meeting times, please check the calendar of events.

What is the Cost of Joining?
The annual fee is $12.00 and the appropriate handbook is under $20.00. A new uniform runs around $50.00 but the shirt is good for several years, so uniform costs do go down as you move through the ranks. We do have a small selection of used uniforms as the boys grow, so please be sure to ask our Cubmaster about what's available. Also, our biggest fundraiser is the popcorn sale that runs in the fall, and each kid earns a percentage of their sales to help pay for pack fees, uniform upgrades, events and more.

If cost is an issue, please contact our Cubmaster or Treasurer as our Pack is able to assist you and all financials are kept private.

Scouting is actually quite reasonable considering all that your son will be doing throughout the year. Don't let the cost get in the way of your decision.
