About Our Pack
About Cub Scout Pack 35
Fun With A Purpose
The mission of the cub scout program is to promote citizenship and character development by instilling the values of scout law. The program is open to children grades K through 5 and is separated into dens according to age.
Cub Scout Den Age Groups
Cub Scout Uniforms
The Cub Scout uniform remains the same from kindergarten through third grade. A new uniform will have to be purchased beginning fourth grade when entering the Webelos den. The Webelos uniform is the same for fourth and fifth grade and remains the same throughout Boy Scouts.
Hats and Neckerchiefs
A new hat will have to be purchased every year from grades K through 4. The hat remains the same for the 4th and 5th grade. Neckerchiefs are included with the cost of dues.
Den meetings are held every other Monday. Dens are separated to work on their own projects for approximately one hour. Scouts will then be released from their individual dens to their parents. Please be aware that after dens have been released, leaders can not account for each child in his/her den. At that point, it is the parent's responsibility to tend to their children in order to maintain a respectful, safe environment.
Pack meetings are held one Friday per month. This gives all scouts and their families the opportunity to interact, and usually includes a fun activity or event.
Meetings are held once a month. This is when the upcoming agenda is discussed, as well as ideas for fundraisers and events. Parents are welcome to attend to express any ideas that they may have, or just to provide feedback.
Annual dues are collected to cover the basic administrative costs to run the program for the year. This includes:
- BSA registration & Service Fee (national organization dues)
- class B t-shirt (this is our informal uniform worn on camping trips, or when announced)
We are a non-profit organization, so we rely on fundraisers to cover the expense of any trips, special events, camping, and needed supplies for the pack. Popcorn sales are the biggest fundraiser of the year. All families are required to participate in order to provide the best possible experience for our scouts.
The Cub Scout program is led by parents, so volunteers are always needed. Whether you are able to take on a leadership or committee role, or donate items and help out at a particular event; please assist in keeping the program running smoothly by volunteering whenever possible.
Training is required for all den leaders and committee members by the BSA. This includes a youth protection seminar and planning courses. Courses can be completed online at no charge. Additional training is required by our charter organization, Immaculate Conception Church. This is an in-person class that pertains to working with youth organizations, as well as a background check. Training is not required to run, or assist with specific events.
