Q3: What are the time commitments for Cub Scouts?

A3: Typically, dens (small groups in the same grade) meet 1-3 times 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 and fall field trips. Celebrations include the Harvest Potluck in the fall and the Blue and Gold pancake breakfast in the spring. Scouts are also involved in a number of service projects every year.

 

Q5: How much does Scouting cost?

A5: Our pack charges an annual fee of $95. 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: We encourage every family to have at least one active adult within the pack. There are two basic ways for adults to participate; in leadership, or on the committee. The leadership group includes the Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, Den Leaders and Assistant Den Leaders. These are the people who teach the boys directly and organize the den meetings.

The other group is the Committee. The Committee includes specific jobs, such as Chair, Treasurer, Advancement, Registrar, Camping, Recruitment, Public Relations, Activities and Fundraising. There are also openings for Committee members that help out where they are needed for specific events or projects. This is the team that takes care of the behind-the-scenes work that keeps our pack running smoothly.

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.
