What is Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouting means "doing." Everything in Cub Scouting is designed to have the boys doing things. Activities are used to achieve the aims of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness. Many of the activities happen right in the den and pack. The most important are the den meetings and the monthly pack meetings.
Apart from the fun and excitement of Cub Scout activities, the Cub Scout Promise, the Law of the Pack, and the Cub Scout sign, handshake, motto, and salute all teach good citizenship and contribute to a boy's sense of belonging.

Where and how often do you meet?
Pack 369 meets at Parkway Baptist Church. Generally the Den Meetings (individual grades) are on the FIRST and THIRD Thursday of the month for approximately 1 hour at the church between the hours of 6pm and 8pm. The Pack Meeting (the whole group) meets on various dates/locations, depending on the activity (usually near the end of the month).
Valley Creek Fire Department is our pack sponsor and provides the pack an additional place to meet.
What does it cost?
When you join Cub Scouts, there is a $40 yearly (Jan-Dec) registration fee and insurance to be sent to Boy Scouts of America to make your son as official scout. New Scouts are pro-rated (at $3.50 per month) into the Pack depending on when during the year they join. Additionally, to cover crafts, activities and expenses, Dens may charge dues.
As an option, for an extra $15, a scout can receive his own magazine subscription to Boy's Life magazine
Registration and dues cover all activities and awards EXCEPT summer camps, family campouts and individual belt loops/pins. These are paid for by the individual families.
