Cub Scouts is FUN with a PURPOSE… So our Leaders having FUN, lead to families having FUN, lead to scouts having FUN, lead to boys becoming men of character. So let’s always have FUN!
Pack 1714 gets outside, shows scout and community spirit, engages the whole family, grows cub scouts into boy scouts, develops our scouts self-confidence…All while having FUN!
Cub Scouts is open to all 1st through 5th-grade boys from all schools (previous participation is NOT required). There are about 70 boys in Pack 1714 organized by dens with ideally 6 – 8 boys of the same age in each den.
Pack and den leaders are volunteer parents, sometimes grandparents. Dens meet 1 – 2 times per month, and the pack meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month. An adult, usually a parent, must participate with their son(s) in all meetings and events.
THE ADVANCEMENT TRAIL
1st graders are Tigers, 2nd graders are Wolves, 3rd graders are Bears and 4th – 5th graders are Webelos. A Cub Scout progresses from rank to rank, learning new skills as he goes. As you advance through the ranks, the requirements get more challenging, to match the new skills and abilities you learn as you get older.
Fees are $100/scout and cover national registration from Fall 2015 to December 2016 plus an optional subscription to the National Scouting magazine called Boy’s Life. Other approximate costs include required uniforms ($40), handbooks ($9) and camp fees depending on day/overnight camps attended ($25 – $130/camp).
