What to Expect...

When you join our pack, we want to make you feel welcome. We have put together this page to help you jump right in and feel prepared for campouts, meetings, and events. 

Cub Scouting is fun! But it is fun with a purpose. Woven though all the fun is an inspired program that works. Tried and proven methods are used that transfer traditional values, build character, and develop leadership skills -- all in the context of fun and family togetherness.

Cub Scouting is a year-round family-oriented part of the BSA program designed for boys and girls who are in kindergarten through fifth grades (or are 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 years of age). Parents and leaders work together to achieve the Purpose of Cub Scouting.

Parent Participation

Scouts BSA is a family activity. Parents, this is your Pack too—and taking responsibility to run it will give everyone involved (yourself included) a richer experience. In fact, all Cub Scout parents are expected to participate. In addition to attending our monthly Parent & Leader meetings (made up of leaders, parents, and other adults), we have numerous leadership positions that need to be filled every year, ranging from a once-a-year commitment to chair an event, to Den Leader to Pack Committee Members.

We encourage parents to consider a role in which they can best use their talents and skills (i.e., Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, Committee Chair, Pack Treasurer, Activities Chairs, or as an assistant to a position). And not to worry, there are plenty of training classes to help you along if you feel don't know what to do. Remember, all of the current adult leaders started where you are - so just jump right up and ask the Cubmaster or another leader how you can help.

Leaders & Volunteers

Our leaders are all parent volunteers who have been trained to provide a quality program for the Scouts and their families. In addition, we encourage our leaders to attend regular scout training events, the University of Scouting, and monthly Roundtable Meetings. We are proud to have several leaders who are former scouts, and Eagle Scouts.

Scouting Activities & Events

Committing your time to participate in Cub Scouts is a big decision for you, your child, and your family. As leaders (and fellow parents) we strive to be conscientious of the demands on your time as a parent, and on the scouts. 

Cub Scouting consists of an hourly den meeting once a week and a monthly pack meeting where all the dens come together to have fun and acknowledge the advancements made by each scout.  

In addition to these events, we typically have monthly activities of special events.  Below is a snapshot of our events for our scouting year.  

See a listing of our events on the Pack Events page!
