For Boys and their Parents
We are pleased that you are considering joining Cub Scout Pack 108. It is our hope that you and your son will find your time with Pack 108 a rewarding and fun experience in which to continue or begin your Scouting adventure.
We have an active Cub Scout program, with Pack meetings every month, Den meetings and other experiences throughout the year. We encourage attendance at as many activities as possible. Some activities can help the boys advance through the Cub Scout ranks or earn belt loops and badges.
We want parents to be active as well! We have numerous positions available, ranging from a once-a-year commitment, to Den Leader to Pack administration. We have a Pack Committee made up of leaders and other adults, and that is always open to parents that usually meets on the second Monday of the month to discuss and plans events and the fund raising necessary to help Pack 108 go and to support the plans made by Den leaders.

In order to join the Cub Scouts, a boy must be entering Kindergarten to join a Lion Den. First grade boys then transition to a Tiger Cub Den. Upon completion of the first grade, a boy moves into a Wolf Den and work towards his Wolf rank. The following year, he enters a Bear Den. Again, working towards his Bear rank. During the fourth and fifth grades, boys enter Webelos, perhaps the most challenging Cub Scout program for the boys. Webelos prepares boys for advancement to Boy Scouts.
As hinted all throughout these pages, we suggest that a prospective scout visit our Pack Meetings before deciding to join. This will give a boy and his parents a chance to see how the Pack operates and what it has to offer.
Once you decide to join us, then you will need to fill out an Cub Scout Youth Application form online (http://www.scouting.org/onlineregistration.aspx) or pick one up form the Pack 108 Cubmaster. Once the application is filled out it is submitted to the Cubmaster, Treasurer or appropriate adult leader with the applicable dues.
We encourage parents to submit Adult Application . When you turn in your application, there is a $24 annual fee. You will also need to go online and complete the Youth Protection Training (See Youth Protection Training Document). The BSA requires that a printout of the certificate you receive from the online training must be submitted with your Adult Application. Without the certificate, your application will not be accepted. The Cub Scout philosophy is to always provide adult leadership at least two deep. Even if you are not a Den leader, it is good to register as an adult leader.
There is no doubt that your son will get out of scouting as much as you are willing to put in. A few hours is a small investment in your son’s future.
