Your son or daughter can join Cub Scouts at anytime as Pack 635 is active during both the school year and the summer. We hold Open Houses in the Fall and Spring, however you don't need to wait until those times to get your child involved. If you are interested in exploring Pack 635, simply join us for a few meetings with your child and then decide if you would like to sign up. When you're ready to register, simply fill out the Online Application.
Costs, Fundraising and Scholarships
If your son or daughter decides to join, annual dues per Scout are $80. During the Fall membership season, there is a $5 off early bird discount for anyone that pays before our October Pack Meeting. Families are also responsible for purchasing a uniform shirt.
Why is there a cost to join? In order to deliver quality programs to the Scouts, Pack 635 typically spends $200 per Scout each year. Annual expenses for the Pack include purchasing den handbooks, neckerchiefs, slides, patches, belt loops, activity pins, Cub Scout magazine subscriptions, Pack t-shirts for first-time Scouts, event supplies, and Pack insurance. We ask that Cubs pay the registration fee and then participate in our annual fundraiser of selling popcorn to bridge the remaining gap. There may also be additional nominal fees for special activities such as an overnight at MetroRock or the Green Mountain Council Haunted Harvest Festival. Attendance is optional at these events.
If you need help covering the costs of dues, activities or uniform, scholarships are available. We do not want to exclude anyone from experiencing scouting due to financial hardship. Pack 635 maintains the Fraiser Fund, named for a former Cubmaster, to assist families in paying for scouting. Please email the Cubmaster if you have any questions.
