uniform shorts from the Scout Shop. You can buy dark blue shorts pants more cost effectively at local retail stores which will suffice.
How often do Cub Scouts meet?

All meetings are held at University Heights United Methodist Church unless otherwise notified by
Who will be my son’s leader?
Our leadership consists of parent volunteers. Each new scouting year, the 1st graders (Tigers) will need two of their parents to volunteer to lead that group. The 2nd-5th graders will be joining existing dens with established leaders unless there are so many new Scouts that a new den needs farming. In this case, like the Tigers, two new parent volunteer leaders must be identified. The Pack relies on parents Ike you to help us run the Dens and Pack, and to create a safe and fun organization for our sons. All leaders are required to take youth protection training and Cub Scout leader training specific to their Den.
How can I help?
The Pack always needs leaders and volunteers to help with every event. Parents are key to the success of our Pack. If you are interested in helping, please let us email us at email@example.com.
