Welcome to Pack 10! This page offers you an overview of how our pack works and how to make the most out of our Scouting program.
How is our pack organized?
Scouts are assigned to a grade-specific den who meet once a month and work on advancement towards earning stickers, badges, or pins (depending on the level). Dens are separated into girls and boys dens at each level. Sometimes, due to numbers of Scouts and leaders, levels might be combined.
K – Lions
1st – Tigers
2nd – Wolves
3rd – Bears
4th/5th – Webelos
All of the dens are part of the larger group known as Pack 10. Pack 10 includes both boys and girls and they all participate together.
How often do Scouts meet?
The dens (small groups) meet monthly. The pack (large group) meets once a month on the last Monday of the month from 6:30 – 7:30. All meetings and activities can be found on the pack schedule.
What happens if our family cannot make a meeting?
All meetings are OPPORTUNITIES to have fun, connect, and engage in the material. Pack activities often are connected to den-level advancement requirements, so families might need to go on their own. If a Scout misses a den meeting, their den leader will send along the requirements for the material that will need to be made up to continue towards advancement.
Which uniform pieces should we buy?
Class A Uniform: Lions cubs wear the Lions tee-shirt as their Class A uniform. Tigers, Wolves, and Bears wear the blue collared shirt as their Class A uniform. Webelos I and II wear the brown collared shirt as their Class A uniform. We recommend that Scouts get the accompanying neckerchief for each level. Scouts can wear any shorts, socks, etc. to accompany the Class A uniform. Hats are also optional. Scout Sunday is the only event where Class A is required.
Class B Uniform: All Scouts are welcome to wear the pack tee-shirt to any events.
Where do the badges go?
Information for badges can be found either in the Scout handbook or online.
Are families welcome to join in the fun?
Yes! We are a family pack, so parents, grandparents, siblings, etc. are welcome to join us at all our events. Per BSA regulations, parents of Lions and Tigers are required to attend all meetings with their Scouts.
How does the pack communicate with parents?
We post the schedule and general information on our pack webpage. Most pack and den information is shared to parents via email. We also have a private Facebook group (Cub Scout Pack 10 – St. Pius X, Granger).
What does dues cover? What does the pack needs cover?
Dues covers the membership in the national BSA organization. The pack needs fee (possibly funded through fundraising) covers participation in all den and pack meetings, all badges and awards earned, the Pinewood Derby, and the Blue & Gold Campfire Event. Some of our larger monthly outings (like camping or climbing) have an additional cost for that event.
How do I learn more about paying for fees through fundraising?
