5. Getting Started
When is a good time to get started?
You can become a scout at anytime. Just contact our Cubmaster or the Den Leader in your age group - or, just show up at one of our meetings....
When do we meet?
Pack Meetings (when all of our scouts, 1st-5th grade, get together in the same place - with the Cubmaster) are normally held on Wednesday each week, 6:30pm at the Steamboat Springs Middle School.
To verify meeting times, you can check the calendar here.
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.
Our dues are $70 per year, which covers all awards. Uniforms and den handbooks are separate. A handbook is around $10.00. A new uniform runs around $20.00 but the shirt is good for several years, so uniform costs do go down as you move through the ranks.
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.
