How does the Pack work?

All parents are expected to help out with the pack.  Every leader is a volunteer and we have several opportunities for parents to step in and help, even if it is only a little bit.  By doing these small things, it helps the Pack and your daughter/son, in a Big way. 


You will soon find that the time you spend involved with your scouts Pack will give you the opportunity to be a “hero” in your daughter's/son’s eyes, and will give you a way to teach volunteers by example. More girls and boys will go on to volunteer later in life when their parents have led by example.

Be assured that the time you spend as an active Scouting parent will be quality time with your daughter/son, creating memories to cherish for a lifetime!

What do I get out of volunteering?

  • Fun and fellowship with other families, sharing your pride in the girls'/boys’ accomplishments.
  • The privilege of helping to enrich and strengthen families.
  • A chance to help girls and boys learn good citizenship and to help shape them into men who have strength of character and are sensitive to the needs of others.
  • The opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of girls and boys as they grow strong in mind and body.
  • A code to live by which will set a worthwhile example for both girls/boys and adults.
  • The satisfaction of being a member of a worldwide movement, and pride in being publicly identified as a part of this organization -- wearing the Scouting uniform is a visible means of showing you believe in and stand up for the ideals and objectives of the Cub Scouts of America.
