Leadership Commitment and Volunteers
Our Pack is led by parents of scouts, just like you. Our Leaders are dedicated. They help make the experiences fun, educational, insightful and memorable. Our leaders are trained. Every leader is required to take a minimum of three classes including one on Youth Protection. Our Pack and BSA treat the protection of our scouts as the most important role we play. We practice two-deep leadership, where no leader is by themselves with a scout – except their own scout. Our leaders are prepared. Leaders in this pack have taken courses in basic outdoor training, safe swimming, and weather safety, to name a few. We practice the principles of “Leave No Trace” at every meeting and hike – leaving the space as it was or better than we found it. The Pack needs volunteers. Whether it is to serve as a den leader or on the committee, help out at a pack meeting, or bring snacks to a den meeting – there is a great need for service and support. Cub Scouts is designed to help the scouts grow closer to their family, and one way for parents to help us achieve that goal is by being involved.
To do your part, ensure your scout is at every den and pack meeting they can make, and that they participate and live up to our motto – “Do Your Best” in all their daily activities. We developed a Code of Conduct to clarify and specify what role each member and their family plays in ensuring our dedication pays off.

In Scouting, our first obligation is to provide a safe environment where we can foster character and leadership in our community. It’s a duty BSA takes seriously. Pack 3075 strictly adheres to ALL
BSA policies and procedures in regards to Youth Protection and Youth Protection Training. BSA has adopted the following policies to provide security for youth in Scouting.
Two-Deep Leadership - Two registered adult leaders or one registered adult leader and the parent/guardian of a participant, one of whom must be at least 21 years of age, are required at all meetings, trips, and outings.
NO One-on-One Contact - One-on-One Contact between adults and youth members is not permitted in any situation that requires a personal conference. The meeting must take place in view of other adults and youth.
Respect of Privacy - Adult members must respect the privacy of youth members in situations such as changing clothes or taking showers at camp. Adults should intrude only to the extent that health and safety require. They should also protect their own privacy in similar situations.
Separate Accommodations - When camping, no youth is permitted to sleep in the tent of an adult other than his own parent/guardian.
Proper Preparation for Activities - All activities should consider the capabilities of the participating youth. No activity should be undertaken without the proper preparation, equipment, clothing, supervision, and safety measures. If this is not met, the Scout(s) will not be allowed to attend the event. This is for the safety of the Scout(s) and the safety of the Den/Pack.
NO Secret Organizations - The BSA does not recognize any secret organizations as part of its program. All activities are open to observation by parents and leaders.
Appropriate Attire - Proper clothing for activities is required.
