Frequently Asked Questions

 

What sorts of things do the scouts do?

Cub Scouts participate in a huge array of activities, including games, projects, skits, stunts, songs, outdoor activities, trips, and service projects. Besides being fun, these activities offer opportunities for growth, achievement, and family involvement.

What supplies and equipment are needed to participate in Scouting?

At minimum, each Scout will need a uniform and a handbook. Additional supplies and equipment may be needed for certain activities such as camping trips or field days. What equipment is needed, as well as whether it will be provided by the unit, will vary. Unit leaders should provide parents with information about any supplies that will be required at the beginning of each program year.

When do you meet?  and How much time is involved ?

Meeting time is determined by members of the den. Examples are Dens meet once a month for a few hours. Others meet more frequently for less time. The Pack (all the dens) meets approximately once a month, but this all depends on activities sometimes less.

How can I save money on the cost of uniforms and equipment?

The unit may provide assistance to families. Some units operate a uniform exchange or uniform bank, or they may hold fund-raisers to enable the boys to earn their uniforms. Also, some units will award boys rank-specific uniform components (hat and neckerchief) and/or the program books that the Scout needs each year—so parents should inquire as to what the unit provides before purchasing the items themselves.
