–Each den leader is budgeted some money to buy supplies for their weekly meetings. Scouts will be able to reserve their fundraising dollars in a personal scouting account. They can use these funds to subsidize the cost of scouting events such as overnight camping trips or council wide events.
–Each den is a group of same-aged boys. All of the dens are collectively referred to as a pack. Many different packs from the same local area belong to a district. Pack 187 belongs to the Benjamin Tallmadge District. There are four districts that belong in the Suffolk County Council.
–Class A uniforms are full dress official uniforms which may be purchased at the scout store located at 7 Scouting Blvd, Medford, NY 11763. . Scouts will wear this uniform to all scout events unless specifically told otherwise. There is a link on the homepage with information about the full dress uniform. Class B uniforms are pack T-shirts that scouts may wear if an activity is anticipated to be messy. Every year scout families are given an opportunity to order pack T-shirts.
–Each scout will be given a red, felt vest that is called a 'brag vest'. This is a perfect way to display each of the patches that a scout is awarded for participation in pack and council events.
