FAQs about Pack 6 and Cub Scouts
What is Cub Scouts?
Cub Scouts is a year-round program that offers fun activities that promote character and leadership development. Scouting embraces the outdoors, focuses on helping our communities through service, and strives to build confident kids through our wide range of activities. The Cub Scout program is designed to develop physical, mental and emotional fitness.
Does Pack 6 include girls?
Yes! This is our second year to include girls. Girls and boys will exist in separate dens within the pack, and they will regularly interact at pack meetings and combined den meetings.
What time/day does Pack 6 meet and where?
We meet at Doylestown United Methodist Church, 320 E. Swamp Road, Doylestown, PA 18901.
Our meetings are from 6:30-7:30 on Monday nights.
What kind of time commitment is required?
The Cub Scout year is September through June with a few events happening over the summer. For the young cub scouts (Lions, Kindergarten and Tigers, 1st graders), there are typically 2 meetings a month. Wolf dens (2nd graders) meet 2-3 times a month. Bear dens (3rd graders) often meet 3-4 times a month, and the Webelos and Arrow of Light dens (4th and 5th graders) meet every week. There is also one Pack event each month for all the dens. Parents have one parent meeting per month.
What is the level of parent involvement?
Cub scouts is a family activity. Parents attend den and pack meetings with their children. Their assistance is required to help young scouts through the program requirements. Siblings who are not in scouts are always welcome to attend den and pack meetings and pack events.
Cub Scout leaders are volunteers and often parents of cub scouts. There are jobs for all parents, from uniformed leaders, to committee members, to as needed help.
What is the annual cost?
Pack dues for the 2019-2020 year are $100. This covers the basic scouting program, books, belt loop awards, etc. In addition to dues, there is typically one fundraising event each year (popcorn sales). Other events, may incur additional costs. Scholarships also available.
