5. 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 or the Den Leader 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 reach out to our Information emal account in the Contact the Leaders section. It only takes a minute and we will contact you shortly.
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 Tuesday of each month in the Mill Street School Multi Purpose Room, MPR.
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 Committee Chair. This will be kept between you and them but you can tend to that later.
Second - The annual fee can change and is dependent on whether the scout meets the fundraising goal (popcorn sales, etc). The appropriate handbook is included. A new uniform runs around $20.00 but the shirt is good for several years, so uniform costs do go down as you move through the ranks.
We are not worried about the fees being paid up front. 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.
