Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions.

Q2: When and how can my child join?

Q3: What are the time commitments for Cub Scouts?

A3: Typically, dens (small groups in the same grade) meet once or twice per month to work on den-specific badges and achievements. Younger groups tend to meet less often and older groups more, but it's really up to the parents as leaders of the den! Once a month, the whole pack meets together as a group.

 

Q4: What kinds of things will we do in Cub Scouts?

A4: We schedule a pack event at least once a month. These include information-based meetings where we learn about a specific topic and achieve badges together, or various events and celebrations. Events include the family campout, hikes, bike rides, the Pinewood Derby, the Raingutter Regatta, pumpkin carving, the Egg Drop competition, and more. There's a big Blue and Gold pancake breakfast celebration event in the spring. Scouts are also involved in a number of service projects every year.

 

Q5: How much does Scouting cost?

A5: Our annual pack dues are $95 per child. Scouts that are just starting out will also need to purchase their uniform and various pack/den insignia for their uniform.

 

Q6: How much are parents required to participate?

Q6: Your only requirement is to actively support your child's involvement in den and pack activities. There are many ways that you can go above and beyond this, from simply lending your voice in planning sessions to taking a leadership position. Parents are often daunted by the prospect of becoming a leader, but in the end we're all just regular people volunteering to help our kids have a great experience.

Each den has a leader (generally a parent of one of the scouts in that den) and should also have at least one assistant leader. Together these parents organize the activities of the den toward the dual aims of having fun and achieving the next rank.

There are also a number of leadership positions at the pack level. This is the team that takes care of the behind-the-scenes work that keeps the pack running smoothly.

  • Cubmaster: MC's pack meetings
  • Committee Chair: runs planning meetings and coordinates relationships with the charter org, the district, and other units
  • Treasurer: organizes the pack budget and tracks expenses
  • Quartermaster: manages equipment and supplies for pack events
  • Advancement Chair: purchases and distributes awards
  • Registrar: manages onboarding for new scouts and families
  • Webmaster: manages the pack site

Whether you have a lot of time to give or just a little, we are confident every family can find a way to contribute positively to the pack.
