How Do I Join?

Parents of young boys and girls face a lot of choices in after-school activities. Kids want to have fun, while parents want them to learn positive values and skills that will last a lifetime. If your child is about to enter Kindergarten through fifth grade, Cub Scouting may be exactly what you are both looking for. Generations of Americans have participated in and benefited from Cub Scouting, and the experience of serving millions of participants over almost a century has enabled us to make Cub Scouting one of the most exciting and rewarding programs available to your family.


The Cub Scout age program is for Kindergarten through 5th graders – Lion, Tiger cubs, Wolf scouts, Bear scouts, Webelos scouts, and Arrow of Light scouts. The Bobcat rank is the first rank earned by Cub Scouts, no matter which grade they begin scouting. After earning the Bobcat rank, they then begin earning the rank of their grade. After completing Bear scout requirements, scouts begin their Webelos and Arrow of Light programs.


Den Meetings

When you join, you will meet two or three times a month with your den, which consists of 5-8 boys or girls usually of the same grade level. The den structure allows youth to build relationships with leaders and other scouts. The den provides opportunities for activities that would be difficult with a large group, such as crafts, games, skits, songs, storytelling, puzzle, and ceremonies. The den also provides leadership opportunities for the boys and girls.

Pack Meetings

Then Pack 847, the collections of dens, will meet once a month. The monthly pack meeting brings together cubs from every den, their leaders, and their families, to participate in a large-scale event that serves as a showcase for everything the youth have learned and done in their individual den meetings. The pack meeting gives the boys and girls a larger experience beyond their own den and helps them to connect their individual activities to the entire Cub Scouting program.
