Families are the key to Cub Scouting. Parents work together with their Scout to help them follow the program and earn achievements. The Cub Scout Pack is a parent-run organization. Parents attend Pack meetings and trips, and participate in running Den and Pack activities. We are always looking for parent volunteers!
What You Can Do To Help Your Child
Read the Scout handbook with them and help them complete the sections together
Attend pack meetings with them
Volunteer to help run an activity within the den
Help out at a pack meeting or sleepover or other event
Keeping The Pack Running
The Pack is self-run by the parents whose children participate. Families are assigned to run the following events each year as per your youngest scout's level:
Lions: Please volunteer for any available event or become a Den Leader
Tiger: Scouting for Food (October) & Pack Graduation (June)
Wolf: Service Project (November) & Ice Cream Social (May)
Bear: Blue & Gold Dinner (February) & Scout Carnival (April)
Webelos: Hike & Service Project (October)
Arrow of Light: Campout (Sept-Oct), Arrow of Light Ceremony (February)
Join the Pack Committee and help make decisions about what we do.
Pack dues and activity fees cover the majority of activities our Scouts get to enjoy, such as, special events at Pack meetings, hikes, campouts, sleepovers, summer events, etc. This money also pays for pins and awards, scout patches, neckerchiefs, slides, badges, registration fees for leaders, books, and more.
Each den may decide to charge its own den dues to cover materials or outings.
