Cub Scouting and Den activities follow a traditional school year from about September to June. However we have many exciting Summer events that Scouts of every Rank will enjoy. These events include summer camps, fishing, hiking and camping. All of our Pack Events are geared toward family fun–siblings are encouraged to attend!
Boys entering 1st grade in the fall are now eligible to join a Tiger Den! Boys entering 2nd grade can join the Wolf Den, boys entering 3rd grade can join the Bear Dens and boys entering 4th or 5th grade can join our Webelos Dens.
For more information about joining the Pack, please use the form below. Please include the grade your son will be entering in the fall so that we can put you in touch with the proper Den Leaders.
We know you and your child are excited about the fun, learning, and adventure that Scouting will bring to your family. This webpage will provide you with some of the basic information you will need as a new parent in Scouting. Even more information can be found on the BSA’s website, www.Scouting.org.
For more than 100 years, Scouting has instilled in youth the values found in the Scout Oath and Scout Law. These values are just as relevant in helping youth grow to their full potential today as they were in 1910. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.
The Boy Scouts of America provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to
- Try new things.
- Provide service to others.
- Build self-confidence.
- Reinforce ethical standards.
While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that, encouraging youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community. Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals. They learn that those in the Scouting family care about what happens to them, regardless of whether a game is won or lost. Perhaps most importantly, Scouting promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when a Scout has to make a hard decision, he can resist peer pressure and make the right choice.
What your scout will need:
The single most important piece of equipment for every boy is his handbook. Handbooks are different for each Rank (age/grade level), so be sure to get the correct one. A local Scout shop is the best place to buy a handbook, and the staff there can guide you to get exactly what you need.
A Cub Scout uniform
- Kerchief Slide (your child’s rank)
- Patches Pack 793, Chief Seattle Council, Den number (provided by your den leader)
