How does participation in Cub Scouts compliment other activities?
The Cub Scout program is designed to compliment many other extracurricular activities. Typical time commitment is one or two Den meetings and one Pack meeting per month. Kids 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?
At least one parent or guardian of a Lion or Tiger Scout (Kindergartner or 1st grader) is required to accompany their child during all den meetings and any Pack event they attend; all other ranks, parental involvement is strongly encouraged, but not always mandatory.

The following are several ways that a parent can assure their child has a great experience:
  • Provide help for and support the den and pack.
  • Work with your child on advancement projects and activities.
  • Attend pack meetings with your child.
  • Attend and assist with den outings.
  • Attend Cub Scout family campouts with your child
  • Attend other pack events throughout the year.
Do Cub Scouts go camping?
Yes, but they ease into it. They may go camping with a parent, or even with the entire family.

How much is it going to cost?
The annual Pack 10 dues of $100, which we collect in January for the following calendar year, covers the National registration fee, insurance while at any pack function, a subscription to Boys' Life Magazine, and helps offset the pack's costs for many of the other awards, activities and meetings. If you join at other times of the year, the dues will be pro-rated. If ever there is a financial hardship in a family, please let us know. We will not let money be an obstacle for any child who wants to be a Scout. Other costs include uniforms and some activity fees including those for the Day Camp and Resident Camps. Youth members participate in one fund-raising activity (popcorn sales), which also helps cover den supplies, equipment, and other activities.
