New Scout Information

What Do Cub Scouts Do?
The Cub Scout books lay out fun and educational Achievements and Electives that the children work towards to earn their advancement badges and achievement patches. At each meeting we try to combine fun activities and games with some structured activity that works towards the goals outlined in the scouting book.

Cub Scouts is open to any boy in 1st thru 5th grade. The annual recruitment meeting is done in early September, but boys can join scouts at any time during the year. Starting in May, any boy who will be entering 1st thru 5th Grade in the fall are eligible to join Scouts and participate in all of the summer activities, including parades, pool party, summer camps, etc...

Meetings:
Dens are groups of scouts from the same grade. Each Den normally holds meetings on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month from September thru April. Each meeting lasts about 1 hour, starts with the Pledge and ends with a snack.

If there is no school due to a holiday or weather, then there will be no scout meeting on that day. (No School == No Scouts)

The Pack is the collection of all Dens. The entire family is welcome to come to the monthly Pack meeting on the 4th Monday of the month to see their scout receive the awards he has earned.

There is also a Committee / Parent meeting on the 2nd Monday of each month to plan for upcoming activities. All parents are encourage to come to these meetings to help and provide input on future den and pack activities. All Cub Scout leaders are volunteers and the pack must have active parental support to continue to survive. As older scouts graduate into Boy Scouts, their parents also move on and leave the pack. This leaves a continual need for new den leaders and committee members. There is not a large time commitment expected for parent volunteers, and the more parental volunteers we have, the less work for everyone in the pack. Please consider stepping up to a leadership/assistant role in scouting. Parent Talent Survey
