Getting Started

When is a good time to get started?

Like most Cub Scout Packs, we go year-round.  You can become a scout at anytime. Just contact our Cubmaster in your age group - or, just show up at one of our meetings.

If you have an interest in learning more about our Pack, if you have questions, or if you are ready to get started, please e-mail our Cubmaster.

When do we meet?

Pack Meetings (when all of our scouts, 1st-5th grade, get together in the same place - with the Cubmaster) are normally held on the second Friday of each month.

Den Meetings (when just one age group meets - with the Den Leader) are normally held twice a month and when there are specific outings.

To verify meeting times, you can check the calendar here.

What is the Cost of Joining?

First - don't let the cost scare you off.  It's not that expensive and our Pack is able to assist if you need help.  The person to see about assistance is the Cubmaster. This will be kept between you and them but you can tend to that later.

Second - To get started, you pay between $15 and $25 (depending on when you join) to become part of Boy Scouts of America.  After you pay this, you won't pay again as long as you sell the minimum popcorn amount (or opt-out of the sale).

Third - You'll need the appropriate handbook (typically under $10) and a uniform (typically under $50).

We can work with you.  Scouting is actually quite reasonable considering all that your son will be doing throughout the year.  Don't let the cost get in the way of your decision.
