Cub Scouts have fun with Family, Friends, and Neighbors
The Pack is a volunteer led group that facilitates all the activities. These include building rockets, going to camp, and learning as part of a den!
Dens allow a Pack to split up and work on age appropriate activities for the Scouts. Through their den, Scouts will learn the Scout Oath and Law, and will learn valuable life skills!
Lion- Kindergarten or 5 years old, Tiger- 1st Grade or 6 years old, Wolf- 2nd Grade or 7 years old,
Bear- 3rd Grade or 8 years old, WEBELOS- 4th Grade or 9 years old, Arrow of Light- 5th Grade or 10 years old
Starting the Fall of 2018, Cub Scouts is becoming more family friendly by allowing Packs to include girl dens into their program. Most Packs in the South Plains Council are including dens for both boys and girls. If you are interested in signing up your daughter in Scouts, please call the council office. for more information about this membership change click here!
Cost of Scouting
The membership fee to join Cub Scouts is $66 a year, and is pro-rated from the month a Scout begins the program with a one-time join fee of $25. Other costs associated are for uniforms, books, camp, activities, etc. and are not included in the membership fee.
When you talk with your Pack volunteers, they will be able to help you understand what your fees go towards. Fundraising, like selling popcorn, is a great way to help keep your costs low.
What do Parents/Guardians do?
Cub Scouting engages the family. Working together, you will complete and sign off on the requirements found in his handbook - from doing a magic trick to creating a fire-escape plan for the family home. Scouting is a volunteer-led program. Each Scout pack is sponsored by a local community organization. Parents are welcome and encouraged to get involved as a pack leader or volunteer. Parents and the community organization select pack leaders. Scout leaders have the opportunity to work with scouts and their families, improving the community through fun-filled activities that teach values of the Scout Oath and Law. By serving as a leader you can help make a positive difference in the kind of adults Scouts grow into.
Many tools, resources, and trainings are available to assist volunteers in becoming effective leaders and enjoy their experience.
Whether you become a volunteer leader or not, Cub Scouts is a family program, and all parents/guardians are expected to participate with their Scout on this awesome adventure!
