How Cub Scouting Works…

Den: Your son will be a part of a den; a small group of boys in the same grade level who meet weekly. The Den is ideally made up of 3 – 8 Scouts.

Pack: All dens, from grades 1 through 5, make up a Pack. Once per month, the dens, with their families, gather at the Pack Meeting, where boys show off the new skills they have learned during the month and are recognized for the badges they have earned.

Den Meeting: Den Meetings are typically held twice per month. Meeting locations are determined by the Den Leader.

Pack Meeting: Pack meetings are typically held at Bayview Elementary School once month on Fridays from 7:15 - 9:30pm. This is a time when Scouts and their families come together to celebrate achievements earned in the previous months. Several times a year our Pack Meetings are held in conjunction with other activities and at a different time.

Parent Committee: The Parent Committee is a group of parents who meet once a month to review the activities of the Pack and to determine future events as well as handle the “business” of the Pack. We welcome all parents to attend the Parent Committee Meeting.

Den Leader: The Den Leader is the person who volunteers to lead the Den. They lead the den at the weekly Den and monthly Pack Meetings. They also attend the monthly Den Leader and Pack Committee Meetings.

Go-See-It: A Go-See-It is a field trip of sorts that fulfills one of the requirements of the Tiger Achievements. Trips include fire stations, history centers, hikes, etc.

Roundtable: A monthly meeting where parents and Leaders of the pack come together to share information with other parents and Leaders and to gather information for the next month’s program. Roundtable is for the entire Sagitoks District and many great ideas are shared here.
