How much is it going to cost?
The annual registration fee is $27.00, it covers National Registration, insurance and a year's subscription to Boys' Life Magazine. Since the Pack's charter begins on February 1, new Cub Scouts may pay a prorated fee for the remainder of the year, depending on when they register. Contact the Cubmaster for a prorated dues schedule. Other costs include uniforms and some activity fees including those for Day Camp and Camp Outs.
Where do the other support funds come from?
Our youth members participate in one fund-raising activity each year, our annual Popcorn Sale. This event funds all of the neckerchiefs and handbooks, appropriate for your son's rank, the pinewood derby kits, and all of the patches and awards for the year, equipment, and other activities.
Where can I buy uniforms, Pack and Den number patches?
The Scout Shops are located in Downtown Milwaukee, Cedarburg and West Bend. Exact locations and contact information is located on our Forms & Downloads page.
If you can't make it to the store, and are comfortable specifying your son's shirt size (S/M/L), you can order everything online from the BSA retail store at ScoutStuff.Org
How often are the meetings?
Cub Scouts usually meet in their Dens once or twice each month, and a Pack meeting is held for all Cub Scouts and their families once a month. Beyond that, it depends on the Den and Pack: a Den may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local museum in place of one of the weekly meetings or in addition to the weekly meetings. Likewise, the Pack may conduct a special event such as a campout, or service activity as an additional event, rather than a substitute for its monthly Pack meeting.
How can I learn more?
The best way to learn about what a Cub Scout really does is to talk with a Cub Scout who is engaged in the program. Alternatively, you can learn more about the Cub Scout program by selecting "Contact Cubmaster" (above) and asking questions, or leave your phone number to receive a call from the Cubmaster. The link below also answers many questions on the program by taking you to the Boy Scouts of America, Join Cub Scouts site.
