Interesting in joining us? :)
What is Cub Scouting?   Scouting provides youth with an opportunity to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence, and reinforce ethical standards. These opportunities not only help them when they are young but also carry forward into their adult lives, improving their relationships, their work lives, their family lives, and the values by which they live.

What are the requirements to join Cub Scouts?   Tiger Cubs (entering first grade or age 6), Wolf Cub Scouts (entering second grade or age 7), Bear Cub Scouts (entering third grade, or age 8), Webelos Scouts (entering fourth or fifth grade, or age 9/10).

What does Cub Scouting offer my son?   Cub Scouting offers fun and challenging activities that promote character development and physical fitness. Service projects, ceremonies, games, and other activities guide boys through the core values and give them a sense of personal achievement. Through positive peer group interaction and parental guidance, boys also learn honesty, bravery, and respect.

How does participation in Cub Scouting affect participation other activities?   The Cub Scout program is designed to compliment many other extracurricular activities. Typical time commitment is two Den meetings and one Pack meeting per month. Boys who participate in organized sports like soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming, gymnastics, etc, or academic-based extracurricular activities like music, art, science etc., can be recognized for these activities though Cub Scout belt loops and pins which are worn on their uniform.

What are the responsibilities of a parent?
  • Provide help and support for the den and pack.
  • Work with your son on advancement projects and activities.
  • Attend pack meetings with your son and present his advancement awards to him at the pack meeting.
  • Attend and assist with den outings.
  • Attend Cub Scout Family campouts with your son.

Do Cub Scouts go camping?   Yes! :) They may go camping with a parent, or even with the entire family. More on Cub Scout camping can be found here. That's not all though, we do a TON of other great activities!

How much is it going to cost? We try to keep our costs at a minimum. Membership is $50/year for new members (includes a Pack 309 shirt!), and $40/year for returning members.

Where can I buy uniforms, pack and den number patches? We are lucky to have a Scout shop relatively close to our Pack!
