Getting Started

When is a good time to get started?

Like most Cub Scout Packs, we go year-round.  You can become a scout at anytime. Just contact our Cubmaster or the Den Leader in your age group - or, just show up at one of our meetings.

When do we meet?

Pack Meetings (when all of our scouts, 1st-5th grade, get together in the same place - with the Cubmaster) are normally held on the third Thursday of each month from 6:30pm at Hope Church on Wolfpit Road in Wilton.  The meetings usually run 1-1.5 hours.

Den Meetings (when just one age group meets - with the Den Leader) are normally held once a month (usually on a weekend) and when there are specific outings.  Dens typically meet at the house of a den family or at a location appropriate for a particular activity (e.g. a park).

To verify meeting times, you can check the calendar here.

What is the Cost of Joining?

First - don't let the cost scare you off.  It's not that expensive and our Pack is able to assist if you need help.  The person to see about assistance is the Committee Chair. This will be kept between you and them but you can tend to that later.

Second - The annual dues are $75.00 and the appropriate handbook and neckerchief for the scouts rank is provided free each year.  A new uniform runs around $20.00 but the shirt is good for several years, so uniform costs do go down as you move through the ranks.

We are not worried about the fees being paid up front.  We can work with you.  Scouting is actually quite reasonable considering all that your son will be doing throughout the year.  Don't let the cost get in the way of your decision.
