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....
  

When do we meet?

Pack Meetings (when all of our scouts, 1st-5th grade, get together in the same place - with the Cubmaster) are normally held on the second Monday of each month during the school year. In the summer, pack meetings are held at different times based on the event planned.

Den Meetings (when just one age group meets - with the Den Leader) are held twice 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. 

Second - The annual fee is $24.00 and if you join during the middle of the year the annual fee is prorated based on the number of months left in the year. The appropriate handbook is under $10.00.  A new uniform runs around $20.00 but the shirt is good for several years, so uniform costs do go down as you move through the ranks.

The Pack and Boy Scouts of America has several programs available to assist in meeting the various costs associated with scouting, including fundraising opportunities and scholarships.  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.
