  Cub Scouting  

Cub Scouting means "doing."  Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness.  Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack.  The most important are the weekly den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.

In Cub Scouting you'll have lots of fun, adventure, and activities with your den and pack.  But there's more to it than that.  Being a Cub Scout means you are a member of a worldwide youth movement that stands for certain values and beliefs.  Cub Scouting is more than something to do.  It's all about the boy you are and the person you will become.

By wearing your uniform, you show others that you are a member of Cub Scouting.  You also remind yourself to live up to Cub Scouting's ideals and the promise you have made.  The official uniform also gives you a place to display the awards and emblems that show your personal achievements and those of your den and pack.

The Tiger Cub, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos handbooks give you step-by-step help as you move along the Cub Scout trail.  No matter how old you are, you have a book written especially for you, with information and activities for your rank and age.  And along with the books, Boys' Life magazine has fun Scouting things for you: stories, comics, jokes, games, and more.

  Parent Participation  

Family support is important in scouting.  Policy requires that a parent or guardian accompany each Tiger Cub at all meetings and functions.  (Parents of Wolf, Bear and Webelo scouts are encouraged but not required to attend.)

Your family is welcome at all Pack and Den outings.  We must ask that a parent or guardian be present and responsible for each non-scout child.

  Fundraisers  
Pack Popcorn Fundraiser
In addition to individual sales, the Pack will arrange Show-N-Sale Popcorn sales for this fundraiser.  These are usually on Saturday mornings at store fronts such as Lowe's and Wal-Mart.  Scouts are asked to wear their uniform if they have one.  If not, a Pack 285 T-shirt (or Pack sweat shirt) and/or a Cub Scout hat will be fine.

The Pack depends on fundraisers to operate and keep individual fees to a minimum.  All scouts are asked to contribute their time so that the Pack may continue to provided materials and activities for their benefit.
