Our Activities

Pine Wood Derby A Pine Wood Derby Winner

We meet every Wednesday during the school year and once a month durring the summer. In our weekly Den meetings scouts learn citizenship, build character, and practice leadership. Once a month we also meet as a whole Pack. These are called Pack Meetings.

COVID NOTE: we are currently meeting in person through October 2021, however we meet monthly to update our policy and our plans will change as guidance is updated. See our Covid News page for details.

Activities


Camping

Camping Camping

Twice a year we do "family camping". These take place in the fall and the spring. Family camping means scouts and at least one gardian attend, however the entire family is invited. Scouts need to attend at least one camping event for their rank requirements but are encouraged to join both. Camping events are a great way to connect with nature, go on hikes and learn the basics of fire safety, cooking, and team work.


Becoming a Scout

Racing Day

  1. filling out an application form (new scouts only),
  2. filling out a health form,
  3. pay dues on our web store.]

After joining, all Scouts should own a cub scout handbook for their Den. This book show all the requirements needed to achieve the "rank" award for the age of the scout. There are required "adventures" and electives. Parents and Scouts are free to work on as many of the electives as they can. In fact, many kids are already doing qualifying activities (like learning to swim) towards awards.

They will also need a uniform. Cub scouts are color coordinated by Den (grade) both for the scouts benefit and the adults. We ask that at minimum parents provide for:

Cub Scout Uniform

Uniforms come in long sleeve and short sleeve options. Most parents get the short sleeve and put the kid in a long sleeve undershirt.

Pants and socks are optional. Awards are worn on both Shirt and Belt so these really are a must. The color coordinated neckerchief and hat help the scout feel a sense of belonging to their Den and it helps the adults guide the scout to where he/she belongs.

Each year we also provided a "class-b" tee-shirt for use at events and activities where scouts might get dirty (we try to have many of these).

Late Registrations or Transfers
