Pack meetings occur approximately once a month for all grades/dens at 6:30pm in the Community Center.  Full Class A uniform should be worn. 


There is usually one weekend event per month.  Cub Scouts are encouraged to attend most meetings and events.  We understand this can be a big commitment!  We encourage the scouts to be well rounded, and realize that they may also participate in other activities.  Therefore, if scouts can attend at least a couple times per month, that’s great!  Just let your den leader know if at any point you have a scheduling conflict.  Cub Scouts can always work with parents at home to complete the required achievements listed in the Scout Handbook.


Are parents involved? 

Scouting is for Families! We encourage parents to stay during den meetings unless prearranged with your den leader.  Lions and Tigers must always be accompanied by an adult.  Pack 50 camp outs are a family event!


How much does it cost?

Our Cub Scout Pack has annual dues of $125 per scout which pays for their registration and insurance with BSA, a subscription to a great scouting magazine, Scouts Life, and helps pay for projects, crafts, and awards. This is only a small amount of the money we actually need to run our Pack. We also rely on fundraising events, such as popcorn sales, to help supplement the costs of running the Pack. Dues deadline is ______. If you have financial concerns please see our Committee Chair, about available options.


Where do we buy the uniform?

There are two scout stores that service our area- Fort Myers and Tampa. Each scout must have the appropriate Handbook. It is recommended that scouts start with the Class A scout shirt, neckerchief, neck slide, and hat. Feel free to check out a meeting or two before making the commitment! The belt, shorts, and socks can be added at your discretion. We have a “Scout Closet” with pre-owned pieces available. Other discount options include eBay and Goodwill.

***We have Pack 50 T-Shirts that we wear for camp outs and other times we might get messy. This is our Class B uniform; shirts cost $10. These are available at Pack Meetings.
