Pack 550 does not promote, teach or discuss any political or religious positions. Instead, we focus on general values of acceptance, compassion and responsibility - all in a fun environment.


Here are the steps to join our pack.

  1. Submit a Youth Application online

  2. Bring a completed Medical form Part A & B to our Recruitment Chair or Committee Chair at the next pack meeting.

  3. Pay yearly dues.

  4. Our joining fee is $143 (if paying by Paypal) or $137 (discount paying by check). This fee covers core pack activities, a pack 550 t-shirt, the red 550 patch, council patches, council registration fees, and Boy's Life magazine subscription. Please contact us if you have any questions at

  5. Help is available if dues are a hardship. Scouting is open to all youth.

You can pay by check (payable to "Pack 550") at the next pack meeting or den meeting or online with PayPal at or using the button below.

Please contact with any questions about registrations or forms.

Does $125 pay for a whole year of Scouting? Not really, unfortunately. The pack needs to raise another $165/scout to pay for important fun activities like the pinewood derby, swim party, family camp, Blue & Gold banquet, and all patches and awards scouts earn each year. This money comes from annual fundraising activities.
