How do I sign my Child up?


The best way is to join us at Sign Up night!
     We will have all necessary forms and information available, with Leaders to answer your questions.

     We will have some prizes to give out, and activities for the kids while the “paperwork” is being done.        


You may also:     Fill out an application

There are several ways.

Registration Fee                

Current yearly registration fee for a new Scout is $87.  This goes from Jan 1 through December 31.   Joining at the September sign up would add $7.25 per month(for October, November, December, for a total of $108.75.  New scouts are also required to pay a $25 one time joining fee.  Presently, Pack 58 has funds set aside to pay this fee IF the scout signs up through December of 2023.  We are also pursuing other fund ideas to help defray the costs.

Registering and paying online will only cover the rest of the calendar year;  new year dues will be due in December.

Go to a meeting.

What if I signed up online, how will I find out where and when there is a meeting?  Once an application is accepted, each adult family member that wishes will get a username and a welcome email to a website called TroopTrack.  it is where our pack calendar is organized and many of our messages come from.  The pack also has a private Facebook Group That after answering a few verification questions you may join.

What if I have more questions?.  Contact Cubmaster Dustin Lof or Committee Chair Tom Weston for details

Volunteer. 

As with any youth organization, the Pack won’t run without adult leadership. The Pack has the minimal required leadership, with most filling multiple roles.  We need help from friends and families of the new Cubs to be part of the leadership team.   There is no pre-existing group of leaders!  The Pack really needs adults to volunteer for many of the necessary leadership positions, especially den leader.  Personalized training is available for any new leaders.

Have Fun.

Children join Cub Scouting because they want to have fun. For the kids, however, fun means a lot more than just having a good time. "Fun" is children's  code word for the satisfaction they get from meeting challenges, having friends, feeling good about themselves, and feeling they are important to other people. While the kids are having fun and doing things they like to do, they also learn new things, discover and master new skills, gain self-confidence, and develop strong friendships.


Common Questions:

     Activities:

          Meetings:  most months during the school year there is a monthly Pack meeting and two Den meetings

          Other activities during the year are the PineWood Derby, Blue and Gold Banquet, summer camps, and other activity trips

     Uniforms:  It is desirable that each Cub obtain a uniform.  The Class A uniform includes the blue short sleeve shirt, neckerchief, slide, and belt. Optional items are a hat, Cub scout pants, and other items.  As the Rank patches earned by the scouts can't be worn on other than the Class A uniform, this needs to be eventually obtained.

          However, there is a fair amount of cost involved with the Class A uniform (see below).  New Scouts will receive a  Pack tee shirt (class B uniform) which can be worn until a Class A can be obtained.


     Handbooks:  Each rank has it's own handbook describing the requirements for advancement and activities to accomplish those requirements.  Cost for those are below as well.
