5. Getting Started

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.

If you have an interest in learning more about our Pack, if you have questions, or if you are ready to get started, please email us - or, just who up at one of our meetings.

When do we meet?

Pack Meetings are normally held on first Tuesdays of each month 6:30-7:30pm, and all of our scouts (kindergarten-5th grade) get together in the same place. The meeting is normally led by the Cubmaster. You are welcome to stop by if you are considering joining the pack. We meet in the Fellowship Hall at the Kirkland Congregational Church during the school year.

We gear the meeting towards the kids and the goal is to have fun and recognize them for their recent accomplishments (with awards, pins, loops, badges, and whatever else we dream up).

Den Meetings (when just one age group meets - with the Den Leader) are held once or twice a month and when there are specific outings.

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. Thanks to support from our charter organization we are able to offer scholarships to assist families when needed. 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 fee is $100.00 and a new uniform runs around $30.00 (depends) 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.
