When is a good time to get started?
Like most Cub Scout Packs, we go year-round. If you have an interest in learning more about our Pack, if you have questions, or if you are ready to get started, please click here and fill out our website form. It only takes a minute and we will contact you shortly.
When do we meet?
Pack Meetings are normally held once per month on every third Tuesday of the month and all of our scouts (1st-5th grade) get together at Pioneer Elementary School in Bolingbrook, IL at 7pm – 8:30pm. The meeting is normally led by the Cubmaster. You are welcome to stop by if you are considering joining the pack. We gear the meeting towards the kids and the goal is to have fun and recognize them for their recent accomplishments (with awards, pins, loops, badges, and whatever else we dream up).
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, from our google calendar found on the sidebar of our pages.
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 – Outside of BSA national and council fees, the annual Pack fee is around $127.00 which includes the cost of your scouts handbook through the ranks. A new uniform runs around $30.00 – $50.00 (depends) but the shirt is good for several years and guaranteed for life, 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.
