Cub Scout Pack 495

Frequently Asked Questions:

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

Cub Scouting is for boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grade, or 5 to 10 years of age. Boys and girls who are older than 10, or who have completed the fifth grade, are eligible to join the Scouts BSA troop for boys or girls. Please see more info about our BSA Troop 495 for boys. 

How can I become an adult volunteer in Cub Scouting? 

Looking to volunteer as an adult leader? There are many adult volunteer positions within Cub Scouting, and we’re glad you are interested!  Please reach out to your pack leaders for information. There are many ways in which you may be able to contribute. From assisting with a meeting, to chairing a committee, the pack will be glad to hear that you want to help. 

How often do Cub Scout meet?

Generally, Cub Scouts meet in their dens at least twice per month, and with their pack once a month. Our Den and pack meetings take place almost every Friday.

 As our Pack grows, we encourage each den leader to set a schedule that works with their families. Occasionally, a den or pack may hold a special activity, such as a service project or visit to a local fire house.
