Joining Cub Scouts: Questions and Answers

How old (or young) can a boy be to join Cub Scouting?

Cub Scouting is for boys in the first through fifth grades, or 7 to 10 years of age. Boys who are older than 10, or who have completed the fifth grade, can no longer join Cub Scouting, but they may be eligible to join the Boy Scouting or Venturing program.

How can I become an adult volunteer in Cub Scouting?

Express your interest to any of our pack leaders, especially Cub Master David Tucker. They can help you understand the process and guide you on areas where the pack needs support. Our pack welcomes any parent who wants to help.

Must I be a U.S. citizen to join Cub Scouting?

Citizenship is not required of youth or adults to become members of the Boy Scouts of America.

Is there a membership fee to join pack 24? Yes there is, though no boy is ever turned away if his family cannot cover the costs. Our yearly dues are typically $100, which covers nearly 12 months of fun and adventure for your son. Dues help provide for materials, various activities and our chartered membership with the Boy Scouts of America.
